Project X Gets Pushed

AdminAdmin Administrator RarePosts: 5,620

Hello all,

Due to typical development setbacks we are having to push back the beta for "X" until late July.  The developer we hired for the project is behind schedule from where we planned...and due to our own budget it actually worked out pretty good on this end.

"X" will initially consist of 3 "pieces" and 2 of those are now complete...leaving the toughest and most time consuming piece left.  What is cool about "X" is that over time we will add all kinds of new "pieces" to the project expanding its functions.  Well enough useless clues for now image

We have signed up more than 4000 beta applicants and are very excited about the response we have gotten from this incredible community.

Thank you!

    Many thanks for the update, things can and do happen.  It's to be expected, and I think your doing a good thing.  I'm not dissapointed at all by the set back, it will happen when its ready.  So carry on with the good job your doing and we all await for future clues.  Although it does sound like a puzzle, lol, just by reading your post.  I'm sure its not, but sounded like it.

    Cheers to you all and keep it up.

    It is a "modular" system.  It will start out very simple...and eventually it will encompass many, many things.

    Thanks for all the kind words Cedori! image

    so the beta people have been picked already?  I really wish game developers would email all those that werent selected for the closed betas saying that their application had been reviewed and not chosen.  I sign up for so many betas and I never get a word back on any of them.

    hehe.. i am looking forward to see what this exciting "project X" is.. I hope i will be one of the beta testers, but i really doubt it This is my first post in this forum, and i usually don't write so much, but i LOVE playing the games ::::02::::::04::::::01::::::19::

    Well I don't want to say I'm happy you guys had to push back the beta release, but I'll probably be in the field all of july(I'm in the military) so if I get pick it will work out great.  I'll be back just in time to start testing!  image

    Well, i'm not even sure if it's a "game" in fact i'm pretty sure the admin's even told us it wouldn't be? Maybe i'm mistaken, but still it would be very interesting to test.

    Well, I can tell you that 'X' will not be aimed at being "entertaining" so to speak...at least not in earlier phases image
