The game is still around, though it's been on hiatus due to life stuff, an important code plugin that broke and the maker has been slow to update it, and some decisions I need to make regarding the game's distribution as well.

People who don't know how coding works don't know how much work is needed to create a game, especially if it is 1 person creating them.

For example, Microsoft Word has between 20 to 40 MILLION lines of code in it. Now these games wouldn't have that lol, but it is still A LOT of work.

Showed you didn't he? Maybe you will think twice about being rude to someone who is putting a ton of work into something that is for everyone's entertainment.

He didn't show me anything, he said it'd be ready before 2017 and its still not ready. Im not going to sugar coat how i feel about that. I was hoping he'd respond because this is a game that i'd like to play.

I understand. Not trying to "show someone" anything at all; just busy with a lot of other stuff and making important decisions about the future of the product.

Possibly something to do with Star Merchant and Cavern Of Time currently available on Steam

Default Whats going on?

Ok this is flatout ridiculous!!! This game was 30% done in October 2014! It was supposed to come out in early 2015!!! Its been 2 1/2 years since the release date! This is really a shame on this whole company promising something 2 1/2 years ago and its still not released! And this developer has been on every day and he hasn't given an update in over a month! I want updates so we know hes not just screwing with us. Really this is a shame! Ive been looking forward to this for almost 3 years. I'm livid!

Patience, grasshoppers. Patience. Derek's not one of those developers that works in total silence and leaves us in the dark as to what's going on. If he were the average bear in that regard, I'd understand your attitudes, But he's a one man show and he's actually willing to explain the issues he's having. Dude took a step back, got some other stuff done, got a fresh eye on this one and is back at work with that fresh eye. I say we give him the benny of the doubt. With the resume he has, I'd say he has a clear idea of what he's doing and how to make it happen.

Thanks, cappyboy! I appreciate your nice words.

Yes, I understand people are annoyed or even quite upset, but i've had a lot going on, both personally and professionally (cross-country move, house issues, coding issues, making other games to bring in income to pay for house, etc) so...that's why this has taken a bit of backseat for awhile.

I'm weighing several options for the game. A possible UI revision? A slightly different approach to the game's in-race interface? Maybe shifting this to Steam Early Access for a wider range of input and some income so I can devote more time to this, and people can play what's already done and I can sharpen it some more? Not sure about any of this or whether its best for the game.

My current project is like 98% finished, and then i'll turn my attention this way. I want to get it done, one way or the other.

YAY! Hopefully we'll be able to playtest it soon.

I like this idea a lot. I think this is the best idea.

Sorry for the harsh words, I’ve just been waiting to play this game for awhile and it has upset me a lot. I look forward to playing this game!
