Hello All!

 It’s been awhile since we’ve given you a proper status update with information regarding what we’re doing and what’s keeping us busy.

Getting a build ready for the 2013 PAX Prime allowed us to showcase the first section of the game. If you haven’t seen it already, you can check it out in Alex Thomas’ “Let’s Play” video series.
