I have some ideas to speed this up. It probably sounds quite greedy, but, the RCB can only be available to the Deluxe Purchasers, to be clear, it included the music, and it had to be purchased 2 or more weeks ago.



That's not really necessary. If they're building a release candidate, the full release is probably imminent unless any bugs crop up in the next few days. If the beta testing went right (and it appears that it did), release candidate testing is usually a pretty short process.

Fixed up a final handful of bugs I had on my radar. Everyone else is doing great work behind the scenes too. A whole lot more than I could do myself. We're tweaking one final room in the hold. Still optimistic we'll have an RCB and demo version ready for testing this weekend! Like Pinnacle stated above, basically however quickly we collectively can verify all bugs are fixed and changes working as intended, plus a run-through of the demo version, then TSS should become available!

Also as mentioned, we can't foresee exactly how long this process will take and whether any new issues will show up, but this is just about as close to the finish line as we can get before actually crossing it.

Oh. :blush

In my experience, beta testing goes crappy-ly, and the RCB release is where there are minor bugs, User-found bugs, and only available to pre-orderers only. But, this is Caravel, and they do Beta Testing as if they were in the empire.

65th: What?
Mike: I need you to submit testing form 4A on bugs.
65th: Right away sir.

Let the pre-rejoicings begin! We now have a demo build to test! We have RCBs!

Mostly, wish the dev team and testers luck that we have time and energy to go the final lap. Everyone has truly worked tirelessly for a long time now and they deserve to be commended for their efforts. When you see the game, I think all their hard work will show.

Edit: gonna post an update on the Illumination board too for greater visibility

Method 1: 674 days (August 3, 2012 to June 8, 2014) ÷ 86.1% (13.5% to 99.6%) = 7.828 days/% (previously 7.837)
⇒ end in 3 days, i. e. on June 11, 2014 (previously June 12, 2014).

Method 2: 774 days (April 25, 2012 to June 8, 2014) ÷ 99.6% (0% to 99.6%) = 7.771 days/% (previously 7.778)
⇒ end in 3 days, i. e. on June 11, 2014 (previously June 12, 2014).

Method 3: 565 days (November 20, 2012 to June 8, 2014) ÷ 83.6% (16% to 99.6%) = 6.758 days/% (previously 6.763)
⇒ end in 3 days, i. e. on June 11, 2014 (previously June 11, 2014).

Method 4: 221 days (October 30, 2013 to June 8, 2014) ÷ 12.5% (87.1% to 99.6%) = 17.680 days/% (previously 18.025)
⇒ end in 7 days, i. e. on June 15, 2014 (previously June 20, 2014).

Rejoice, for release is (or appears to be) nigh. Verily so.

I can’t wait. :w00t

99.65%, which is also coincidentally the percentage of problems that can be solved with a Really Big Sword.

Let's say 99.60% then!
Maybe 99.50%? Just kidding, I'm eager for the multi-weapon too!

You'll never become the 63rd person like that.

Once upon a time, the bar linked to a particular page. The page still exists if you wish to embark on the quest to unlock the bar's secrets.
