    Believe it or not, we finally hit this very important milestone. After 3 years of work I can hardly believe it myself (it's a very surreal feeling). Anyway, the first group of colonists is already playing the demo, so far no crashes or other unpleasantries. If everything goes well, we'll add 10-15 people this weekend and keep adding more each week until we have all the missing pieces, then release it to generic public.

    What's left to do: replacing some old animations that Ivan never had a chance to finish, female animations and models, coats (the models are nearly done, need to be textured), all customization options including hair and beards, some GUI tweaks here and there, and extra sounds.

    The latest screens:

    I invited Sunfire; Vaha hasn't been around for a while. As for the rest, we just don't want to be overwhelmed if everyone starts having technical difficulties at once, so this phase is more of perfornance testing. The demo runs fine on our computers but that's too limited a sample. If there are no serious tech issues today and tomorrow, we'll add more people on Sat.

    You just did. I hope you don't mind waiting until the weekend.

    Only skimmed it (so far) but the UI is looking good. I especially like what you've done with the turn order, reducing it to a vertical list rather than the Unity-looking horizontal portrait queue. Gives the combat portion a more mature, unique look.

    Looks awesome. Combat interface seems sleek. Really dig the Tommy Gun description.

    PS Marksmanship text is overflowing.

    Same here.

    Btw, Vault Dweller, what is the plan after this? Prepare everything for the early access or it still a long road until then?

    Prepare for the Early Access. The road to get there isn't that long now as we've been working on the starting areas for a while now. Still, implementing quests and scripting fights will take many months, so I'd say 8-10 months of work.

    No, it's way too late for that now. Our best case scenario is releasing on EA by the end of the year and then managing to do the rest in a year.
