It is crunch time for us which is why I've been so silent lately - I still keep an eye on things, don't worry. I just can't be as active.
When we launch Home Base it will be a beta version. This means the game will rough in many way and we'll be making frequent updates to add content and fix bugs, in fact we already have a ton of updates planned for the weeks and months post-launch. You'll see a lot of "Coming Soon" signs scattered around the different areas at first.
Most likely I'll end up telling you the launch date....the day we launch. Heh. Because of that, you'll really be the only ones out there that know about this game at the start even though it will be public. I'm sure as you play you'll have a lot of feedback, so I'll be making a dedicated thread just for bug reports and feature requests. We're building this world for you after all, we want your feedback.
Anyways, enjoy my hitting the avatar customization randomizer a bunch of times and also giving a thumbs up to a sloth.
Here's to new adventures y'all!
