So, tonight I'm really pleased to be able to release the new beta test for you all. Hopefully there aren't any major problems with it, just get it from the download page.

Besides this, I really want to thank all the beta testers, particularly comm4ndo and frogman for their suggestions; but everyone for giving it a try. This beta test should (should!... famous last words right...) be way better than the last one, which itself was way better than the one that came before it.

What I really, really need is to know now is if there are any crash bugs, or "pure nonsense" bugs, or other things that seem as if they should work a certain way but don't. If you encounter some situation that for instance causes you to have to do a "hard exit" from the game, or crashes it, don't assume that I know about it because I probably don't. I coded this whole game very very fast and didn't spend a lot of time verifying that everything worked; so what has been tested has been tested haphazardly.

Anyhow, hopefully you will all enjoy this, I'm going to try and get some new world files up tommorow so that you can create your own games in an alternate universe and see what that's like. Cheers!

Wow! Every time I do one of these minor updates I really screw things up =) I should limit myself to doing an update when I can be around for the next couple of days. Sorry for the general malfunctions in 0.7.0.1, hopefully 0.7.0.2 fixes it. Thanks for you guys who are enjoying this, it's rewarding for me to see.

Another little update for anybody who is paying attention!

I'm trying to make the game flow a little better. In particular, I'm making the intention of the quests a bit cleaner; so that you shouldn't feel quite as lost your first time through. My hope is that if I can clean up the main quest/storyline instructions a little bit, it should be a bit more compelling.

You may have also noticed, if you view the "game" information for a game you are joined to (on the website) it now lists the top scores, as well as the latest news. Soon, I am revamping the website so that it a) can remember your login via cookies and b) will show you by default info on your current game when you log in. So right away you will see the top scores and be able to get some idea of who is winning.

Have fun! Zoooooomm.....
