    Can we get one?

    I believe most everyone understands that you have been very busy since the Kickstarter ended and that estimated timelines often change as details are worked out, but an updated sense of when we can expect, even in guesstimated terms, the following would, I think, be very welcomed:

    Kickstarter Reward Tiers closing
    Swag store Opening
    Developers Blog launch
    Forum improvements / overhaul
    Spoony interview
    Unity game assests
    Single-player code testing / Alpha start

    Am I missing anything else?

    Thanks!

    It kind of feels like the dev chat cams have taken the place of the dev blogs which is almost a bait and switch. Shouldn't this <i>inside the shroud</i> type of information be restricted to those of us who stepped up to the next level to get it?

    The game isn't coming out for 18 months, but why don't we know everything about the game now? :p

    Trust me, the Developer only blogs/forums will be filled with plenty of exclusive content and should be up and running by the end of the month. :) But that doesn't mean we're going to stop giving regular progress updates to the community as well.

    Quick, everyone tick off 'bait and switch' on their cycnical gamer bingo card!

    I just need 'class action' and BINGO.

    @FireLotus
    Thanks for the update ^^. Remember, most of us backed you guys because of potalariiums' vision and colelctive passion for games. Pass on my thanks to everyone for the work they are doing behind the scenes right now. I know Moriens shares this sentiment as do many other backers.

    It's easy to forget that the extra features you have been able to offer thanks to the success of the kickerstarter can mean that the timing is a little more complicated then the original vision.

    Regards ^^

    Hmmm end of the month - that's only 48hrs :)

    Not that I'm planning to protest if takes a couple days more for them to be ready, but would be great if it is the case :)

    @enderandrew: I wouldn't hold my breath about the 18-month schedule. The developer level forums were initially promised in April and it's almost June. So something that was thought to take a month has now taken two. And this one would think is an easy thing to deliver unlike the entire game.

    I feel like I should clarify the intent behind my OP. :p

    Firelotus and all the devs have been great with providing lots of information and I thank them for it all, and I certainly understand how an initially estimated timeframe can slip as the nitty gritty realities of a project get tackled. I was just asking, post KS by several weeks, if after they had had time to review some of those items mentioned during the KS they had any revised estimated timeframes. And it's always better to have an officially stated estimated timeframe then people on the forums just guessing at when things will be done or delivered.

    Thanks again for all the information you share with us, Portalarium!
