I get the feeling that Prevail is the kind of game project that just keeps growing at an accelerated pace (Johnny Two Shoes' Twitter lends some credence to this theory : "Creating content systems so we can make almost anything happen in Prevail - sure is a lot of work. BUT DAMN ITS COOL"), and thus JTS decided to just take their sweet time and let the game swell out of but also into epic proportions. Eventually, they'll have to submit to gravity and touch down, but for now, they soar far beyond their initial ambitions.

If this is the case, I would't complain if they spent another half a year injecting epic into awesome. Thus, every wednesday/thursday night Prevail is not released, my expectations just grow

I'd love some sort of heads up. I really want to follow this game as I think it's going to be something special but the lack of updates makes it hard for me. I don't follow on twitter, basically only here, maybe that is the problem.

+1 This is one of my three "upcoming" wishes. I hope this doesn't end up being another "Duke Nukem Forever-ish" never-ending project...

Just release it how it is. Look at what type of feedback you get from the Initial release and see what you do from there. For example if people say they want more updates then take it from there but if they like the game how it is then take it from there.

I keep checking the official site, nothing. No useful info on twitter either. Sucks after having followed the game for so long

So, after following the game for so long, you are disappointed that the developers take their time to polish and improve the game? Might I recommend the world of AAA console development, then? It is full of games rushed out to meet unforgiving launch dates

I totally agree with Ayjona, PLEASE do NOT rush this game out because some people are impatient! I would much rather wait for a polished incredible game then an unfinished game full of glitches. I absolutely love what I've seen of your game and am excited to explore your universe! I also wanted to thank you for keeping this game a premium game! Freemium developers only care about your money, not their product or their fans and are ruining the game industry!!!

And for those of you complaining about lack of updates, maybe that's because the developers are busting their butts to get this game out for you to play instead of spending their time in forums and twitter!!! There are only 2 developers making a game that will blow away games that huge companies develop so show some respect!
