I can't help but notice that it's been about a month since the last time the Devs posted on these forums. I really hope that they haven't given up on this game, especially since I only just started playing it a few days ago. lol Although, if I understand correctly, the Devs are college students, so they may just be super busy with class, right now. Midterms, maybe?
Pretty much. Raft first appeared around October of last year and they jammed multiple versions out before getting to 1.0 around December/January. Pretty good when you look at the prototype they started from. After the initial release they were back in school and except for the day/night update, it's been pretty quiet. They'll probably be a release hopefully in spring break then it'll probably go dark until summer again.
