ok, this announcement has turned out to be another slight exaggeration.

I work on the game almost every day, so there is little (foreseeable) danger of it being put on hiatus or w/e. But, at this point I doubt that I can make this July deadline. There is just too much unfinished and I can't dedicate any more time to working on it than I do already. The closed beta might come out this August, with the public one trailing close behind.

Sorry for another release date revision, and thanks for your continued support.

Good morrowe subscribers and other esteemed guests,

Ever since Oathguard's closed beta release in April, and especially since my schooldayz ended in May, I have been working 1-4 hours a day to complete a reasonably functional open beta version.

Chipsetting, charsetting, stressing, (franken)spriting, dreaming, sketching, writing, eventing, powernapping, powerpatching, importing, thespritersresource.com'ing, battletesting, coding, and otherwise spending copious amounts of my time on this earth trying to transmute my game making dreams into a reality.

I just wanted to pop in and say that while I know I have put up numerous false-alarm release dates before, please believe me when I say that the first public beta for OG will def be out this month of July 2011. Please clear your calendar, cancel your plans, and otherwise prepare yourself accordingly, my friends.

Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.


Thank you for you support and patience. Hopefully the next time I will address you it will be to welcome you to my RM dream land at long last.

Regards,

The first open beta will be roughly 85% of first chapter (about 1-2 hrs of gameplay). It will be put up as a download link hosted on 4shared or something, but not as an official download. An official release of the whole first chapter (e.g. one hosted at rmn that will allow the game to be reviewed) will be up once I deal with all reported bugs, etc, and finish that last 15%.
Woah, cool. Really looking forward to seeing how this has turned out!
