Well, there were a multitude of problems actually :)

First, we couldn't finish one feature last friday, so we pushed it till next week and finished it on monday. Then we did some testing and, surprise-surprise, there were more than 30 bugs in total. We have fixed all of these already except one. But we will release this friday anyway, as an experimental version.

But now, after upgrading our build server we have lost the unity license key! Perfect timing :) So, tomorrow we have to do *something* to be able to build the final version. We will think of *something* for sure, but still.

And lastly we need to prepare some stuff for press release. This is quite a significan update for us, so we want other people to be notified about it.

So, that's our story so far!

Still sounds pretty good, do you think the next update will include a teamup/party option for multiplayer and share exp when killing npc's/players? :)
I think you have done an amazing job with the game so far, ive played the Escape Velocity serie since they got released and even if this is a different game its the best and closest successor ever. You are here to axle the mantle probobly for all us EV fans, keep the good work up :)

Did you get the chance to add shared XP without a party frame in this current release?

If I did I would have said already :)
Sorry, can't say now. Maybe in the next big update? But don't quote me on this :)

QUOTED FOR TRUTH!

Last weekend I worked together with AI to try to get VE to work in wine but no luck... I can get the intros to load, and I hear the main menu music but don't get any screen.
Tibarn, if you are handy with wine/etc then maybe you can give it a try too?

kyokei, we made a big progress with Mac version this week, so Linux version should work as well (native, not Wine). Stay tuned!
