Hey guys, sorry to leave you hanging like that.
I made a big push for a Dec 31 release, but it didn't happen. I'm disappointed in that too.
The mod I've been working on is nearing completion. I'm going to cut the custom maps I had planned and aim for an end-of-Feb release date. I originally wanted to add a bonus area to each chapter with new puzzles, special enemies, and hidden prizes (new badges/star pieces). Unfortunately I just don't have the time to create the required maps. Perhaps we can collaborate on that for a community project at some point. Instead, I added a "pit of trials"-like series of battles that can be played to earn the new badges.
It seems like updating the documentation is a never-ending process. I think, for sure, we should create a wiki for the tools and general PM hacking after release. I've been writing a number of text documents that we can start with explaining the major systems of the game, how the RAM is laid out, the formats for a number of large, important data structures, camera position calculations, etc.
We should start talking about the release process. I suppose the whole thing could be thrown on GitHub, but I'm not familiar with how to do that. I'm also not going to build a new website to host it, there's just not enough time. Would someone else be interested in hosting it?
I'll be out for a business trip next week, but I look forward to hearing from you guys in the interim.
