    <a href="http://www.irontowerstudio.com/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=d3d44ae21e8386605f818776ab48fe11&topic=905.0">Scott's announced</a> that he got a programmer on board, Ted of <a href="http://www.co8.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=45">Keep on the Borderlands</a> fame. Looks like Scott finally started to make a game instead of just talking about it.
    <br>
    <br>
    <blockquote>Ted is the brains behind the Temple of Elemental Evil total conversion, Keep on the Borderlands, a project in which I was also involved.
    <br>
    <br>
    As one of the chief tinkerers on the game engine, he was responsible for a lot of deconstructing and rewriting of Troika's tangle of code, unaided by the authors and without any sort of tools.
    <br>
    <br>
    Other than that, Ted said he's been programming since the 80s and has experience in several languages, including BASIC and html! He also likes RPGs.
    <br>
    <br>
    Most importantly, Ted brings a feverish enthusiasm both for computer games and the work of the Master.

    Good, I was getting pretty skeptical. It's nice but you can't do creative work and 'pre-production' forever.

    I'm certain he knows a hell of a lot more than HTML. Oh wait, that was obvious wasn't it?

    This thing will never take off, or will train crash pretty soon.

    Why don't those guys simply make a text game based on one of Lovecraft's stories and get it over with?

    Just a little:

    Cyclopean sounds more interesting to me than AoD.

    I hope he works in a professional manner.

    An unprofessional programmer -no matter his skill level- can do more harm to a project than he is useful.

    C'mon man, it's the Codex! But fo real, the game does sound really interesting. But I think everyone just gets burnt waiting for Indie games- because 9/10 times they just don't happen. If it helps, you have my full and undivided support.

    So, when is the release date?
