Hidey-ho, loyal followers. Just wanted to stop in and announce that I'm not dead, I'm not disappeared, and I'm not abandoning the game, despite a longer-than-normal silence. I've just been focusing on other things recently, while slowly testing and improving 0.6 - not sure when it will be ready, but it will include both A) some new content and B) some relatively large behind-the-scene changes.
There was/is no April fools joke here, becuase I don't hate kittens. Every time you make a dumb fake announcement on your website for April 1st, an anonymous thief steals $15 from an animal shelter. Please, think of the kittens. Or think of the puppies if you'd rather.
