The Bay 12 Games Report, November 1st, 2015

Mission Status

This is it!  The final countdown has begun.  If I had to guess I would predict a release in the near future.  Sadly there are no guarantees in life.  The release has to be polished so there aren't too many bugs.  Don't worry, we will save plenty of bugs for you to report back on!  Just remember that your generosity and participation is what has made this all possible.

Congratulations to the generous!

Fun with Numbers

Thanks to everybody that helped out in October.  We're getting close enough to a release here that it's almost time to start telling everybody to de-hype and manage their expectations, he he he.  Especially to new people that arrived after 0.40.01 -- DF releases are always strange and rocky experiences, but we'll be doing many subsequent releases over the weeks following the big one to clean up issues and otherwise improve the game.  At least there is a release protocol in place to make sure dwarves wake up after sleeping...  In any case, the number of development items remaining is down to a scant 14.  I posted a complete list here.

October:   $5685.73
September: $5191.32
August:    $6331.06
July:      $4881.87
June:      $5520.39

Reward reminder:  If you support us, you can pick either a Story Reward or a Crayon Art Reward.  A Story Reward is basically a mini-Threetoe story (examples) and a Crayon Art Reward is a crudely drawn scene which we sketch, color in, and mail to you, anywhere in the world (assuming your contribution covers postage, which is about a dollar almost wherever you are).  We take personal requests for either reward as well, he he he.  You can also be listed among the Bay 12 Champions.  You can choose any kind of reward no matter which contribution method you choose.
