I'm so happy to hear that you're working on a new episode.
I'm trying to make a game inspired in yours too, and I can understand how hard it is to make the game while studying/working/doing other stuff. So don't worry, take your time. I hope you get to finish it soon <3
But don't feel pushed, only program if you feel like it, it is the love the programmer and designer puts into the game that makes it so good.
