Loving the new updates, and I hate to be a downer but...yeah its gotta be asked.
Working on the assumption that the kickstarter isn't going to go through, do you intend to drop work on the game, and if not, what's the plan going forward?
Yeah, the Kickstarter's probably sunk. It's my fault, I'm terrible at marketing.
Assuming the kickstarter fails, I intend to roughly continue as usual, just with no artwork. I've been working on this part-time, mostly, so there's no major reason for me to change. What this means mostly is that the game will be in the same art-style it's always been in. I don't see any reason it can't be completed to the level described in the design aims document, though.
Once that's done (probably around October), I'll see what's what. Maybe start a new game, maybe write a new design document and do more work on this one. Might open-source this game, if anyone wants to continue development, or investigate if it's possible to make mods work in the way Rimworld and Kerbal Space Program do, with loading .dlls which execute Unity MonoBehaviours.
