2015.12.18 - A little break
Hi all,

It has been a little quiet since the last update, the reason is that I was working on my to-do list, and fixing with making the buildings as mod able as possible as I mentioned in my last update. But that is not the only reason, I have been developing Dwelvers for almost 3 years now and the plan is to get the game finished within a year from now. During these three years I have been able to live on the sales from Dwelvers and have therefore been able to work full time on the game. But as the game isn't a finished product and because it has taken some time to develop it up to this point the sales has gone down, and my economy has been a little on the edge to be honest.

I am telling you all this because I want you to know that I am taking a break from developing Dwelvers until the beginning of February, and that the reason is that I am working full time on another job to be able to get my economy back on track so that I can keep on developing and finishing the game before the end of the next year.

Many of you may take this as a set back and I suspect I will get some "I told you so" from those of you that have been against early access development from start, but know that I have been working on it full time for three years and I have no intention to stop working on it as we are so close to seeing it finished (relative to the time it took to develop it to this point).

I hope you all understand my situation.

Yeah stoopid money...I completely understand where you're coming from, and I know you're not gonna just abandon Dwelvers so I'm just glad you let us know what's going on despite some possibly taking this as a bad sign. The way I look at it is that if you were in any way deceitful you wouldn't have been honest about why you're taking a break and your economic situation. While I'm a little disappointed I won't be seeing a new version soon (hopefully with a map editor to help build the campaigns and tutorials), I can wait till February to see what you've updated. Really I thought I was going to have free time here at the end of the year, but I've been getting a lot of projects come my way so I haven't had much time for anything outside of work which is really unusual this time of year.

So good luck workin for the man again, hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, and we'll see Dwelvers next year.
