Dear readers, followers, buyers of the book.

I am very, very sorry about the massive delay the book had to take. My wife got a terrible medical diagnosis last year and we have been going through the worst time of our lifes for about a year now. The impact on my life completely bailed me out of anything; having to take care of her, her treatment and the kids alongside a fulltime job didn't leave much room for much.

Please excuse me for not letting you know about the delays earlier - I have been hoping for things to get back to normal way sooner than they did (we're actually still far from normal, but at least back to stable) or me finding some spare time.

The last weeks and months have been better, though she is still suffering from the results of the therapy, but I am hopeful that things will get back to normal soon.

I totally understand each and every of you asking for a refund and I am very sorry for the loss that has been generated due to  the delay that cannot be helped with a refund, espescially when it comes to kids waiting for the book. For refunds, please contact me at tassilo@bumblebee-games.com.

However, this does not at all mean that I am going to give up. I plan to upload a new version of the existing first part including fixes during the next two weeks and hope to have the book completed before the end of july. It is difficult for me to find a balance between taking care of my family, which includes generating an income and the completion of the book,  but I will do my best.

Please accept my sincerest apologies for the delay and, if possible, please stick to the project.

All the best,

Tassilo

wishing you all the best, health is top priority

by the way tassilo, i am interested in translating the book into greek, my son is 8 and would like him to be able to go through the book on his own pace also, would that be possible?

Thanks for your wishes. It would be possible, but require you to use InDesign. Do you own a copy? I would love to implement the texts for you (and maybe even the public), but with my current situation I am afraid I'd  probably never manage to make it :/

Yes i have a copy and i could implement the greek text if you agree, no problem.

I can help with translating the text into Spanish.

Sorry to hear about your difficulties, I am a french, graphic designer, I love pico8 and own InDesign. I propose to translate your book in french if you agree. You can contact me when you feel. Hope everything get better.

Hi Tassilo, 

Love the work you have done and my greatest regards for your wife and hope she get well. 

Sorry to hear about your difficulties Tassilo. Family and health is always priority. Hope you can pass  through the best way possible.

Wishing you all the best.
