Music in the OP trailer - someone's done vv gj with that. Like! The char animations were a bit stiff in that trailer, also imo. Otherwise intriguing stuff.

The character animations are pretty basic right now to allow for all the different clothing options we're going to have, and to help deal with the iPhone's very limited texture memory, but that could all see some refinement as we keep developing the game

I'm a fan of the trailer music too, I think Mike outdid himself there. Music is going to factor into the gameplay as well - stay tuned for more info on that.

I commented on this awhile ago without even realizing it. This game still looks amazing and I would love to help with the beta process if it is possible.

Pretty much everyone has expressed interest in the alpha... we'll gradually roll everyone into it when we get there. The earlier folks sign up, the earlier they'll get in So far, there aren't too many, so there shouldn't be much of a delay once we've started. It's just getting to that starting point that might be a few weeks

A "couple" weeks turned into "four", but hey, that's game development for ya

Our public Mac alpha officially begins tomorrow - thanks everyone for being patient!

We also announced our Kickstarter project, and we'd love it if you can back us:
