Any News on Astro Ranch?

I haven't seen a thread on this in sometime. Now that Car Jack Streets is out is this next for TAG? I wonder if Paul could post a new screenshot or two

Yep the news is true - Astro Ranch lives!!

Release date has yet to be confirmed but the game is back in full time development and is coming along really well. Right now we are watching how Minigore goes. If that model of release early and then add twice monthly updates works then we might adopt it for AR. Our experience with Car Jack was despite the vocal demands for regular updates on sites like TA the reality was it made hee-hah difference to sales so we might just load it up with features for release and then do one or two free updates and focus on the paid additions...

Will have some new screens and info very soon... the look has changed quite a bit from those on the AR website. We'll also be setting up Facebook/MySpace/Twitter pages for the game etc

I was also wondering if anyone would be interested in we started a blog that would cover the final stages of the inital development? If so we'll get something started.

In the meantime I'll start a poll for your "Most Wanted" features...
