Update from Ally:
"Hello, all my adorable lovelies.
I know it's been a rough time around the world and I hope you are all safe and well! This update has been too long coming, I know. I hate giving bad news instead of good and this past year has brought *a lot* for me and my family. It's been rough for health, finances, and game-related issues. One of which is a suddenly corrupted harddrive we haven't been able to fix that had a lot of my information and files (nothing from the game proper, but a lot of things like the photoshop files for achievements and stuff like that.) So far I haven't been missing anything completely vital, (back ups galore for all of those) but that might change as the work continues.
Work which has been absolutely embarrassingly slow lately. I am so deeply apologetic about how long the endings are taking. They are very complicated and very involved and life has been getting in the way. All of your support and care have been absolutely wonderful and I can't help but feel I have been letting you all down. I am so, so sorry. But the game continues!
I am sorry for the concern <3 Lately, things are starting to look up again re: health issues, and I've been able to work much better. I don't have an exact expectation to finish (because we all know how well those have been working for me (or not) but I definitely have hope for the base game to be done and up for alpha sales before the end of summer.
I hope everyone has been taking care of yourselves! Don't forget you are all amazing, adorable, and very important <3" -Aly
