Nooo - not Santa Claus. Claus the lead DF developer just popped by the official DF IRC to say hi and answer some questions. He was in there about 3 hours, so if you'd like to read the log there is a post about it over on the official forums. I remember him specifically saying that this game is real, its almost ready, and it IS coming out.
Hope this raises spirits about the game here at mmorpg.com, seems like there were a lot of neyseyers here.
