The Bay 12 Games Report, February 1st, 2012

Mission Status

Generosity knows no bounds.  How can it, with the next version coming out in February?  It is a hard thing to ask for those who have given so much to wait just a little longer.  The wise know the rewards to come, but hold on a little longer and see for yourself.  Wide worlds filled with towers and dungeons, mummyís curses and wizardís spells.  Or work the cold cases left by a murderous vampire that stalks the dwarf fortress.  All of this will soon be yours!

Congratulations to the generous!

Fun with Numbers

In order to finish, I have Threetoe's list of issues that came up during testing, a little more map maintenance, and the SDL updates.  February seems like a safe bet now, since nothing that has come up should really be that time consuming to fix, and anything minor that comes up can be fixed after a release rather than before if it comes down to it.

There are many new players that haven't been around for a release before, so I'd like to remind everybody that there tend to be several smaller releases after a large one to clean things up (on a scale of a few weeks or even days depending on the severity of the problems), and as usual we're aiming to fix many old problems as well as the new ones that will inevitably appear.  Thanks to everybody that helped out last month!  We're really looking forward to seeing everybody have fun with the upcoming release.

January:   $3689.27
December:  $5468.33
November:  $3199.46
October:   $2503.28
September: $2793.95

Reward reminder:  If you support us, you can pick either a Story Reward or a Crayon/Colored Pencil 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.
