My Apologies

Zeik here, and I need to apologize to everyone profusely. I’m sorry to all of you but most of all to Cake, she finished all of the assets, she literally did all the art, all the music, sound effects, and some promotional material. I lied to all of you and lied to myself that I could finish the game in the few hours I could scrounge from the busy weekend. I fought it until the last minutes, but it was just too much.

We’d always managed to scrape by in the past but I bit off more than I could chew this time. I promised this feature and that feature, but in the end I just couldn’t finish them all. The code is 95% there, but all the little bits that make a game special: plugging in the music, the sound effects, the fades and extra flourishes… all that is missing. It’s just not done.

Don’t count us out though, we’ll be back. We’ll be back with a vengeance.

    I’m happy that you are sticking to your standards, and I look forward to your finished version of “Last Stand” :-)

    There will still be people wanting to play it when you release it. ^_^

    It’s okay not to finish, I understand you feel sorry for Cake, but I’m sure she understands how hard you tried. Make it up to her and to the community by finishing the game, no matter how long you take!
