Not strictly true! Gate B had itself some new elements. Only a couple, but they're there.

Certainly not without its faults (one day I will write my developer's post-mortem commentary...), but I honestly think shallow water and its interactions with the different monsters, mirrors etc is a great addition.

I think TFMurphy's Flood Warning is excellent, both as a display of how to utilise the new elements and as an enjoyable hold in its own right.

But wait til you see the new elements in TSS! (directed not at Banjooie, who already has seen them)

I think it would be July 3rd. Games don't tend to come out during the sale, and there are games released until July 2nd. And then nothing until July 17th (at least for now.)

I personally hope that TSS will come out before the 20th, because Mario Marathon is starting on that day, and I don't want to have to pick between it and DROD.

I guess I could multitask... I'll try if I must. Take your time, folks! Your work will be certainly appreciated once the big day comes! :)

Vike: I'm currently pining for June 15th, which was rman's prediction in the Bar thread. I personally hope it's true, but hey, whatever. As I said, take your time, Caravel folks! :P

It's hard to tell. TCB jumped from 99.6 to release in a single day, so it's really hard to use the bar as much of an indication. I would be surprised if it didn't release this month though.

There's still one must-fix bug that I'm working on, but besides that, I think we're pretty much ready to release. I would like to release on the 15th, but we won't hit that date. We are planning for it to be this next week, though! :yay
We should probably just plan for next Friday or Saturday, giving our final RCB some "bake time" before releasing it to everyone that has ordered. We'll get back to you with an "official" word about this asap.

Ah poo! Friday conflicts with my plans to watch people play video games for charity. Ah well, I'm sure I'll manage somehow. :P

Keep up the good work, can't wait for that game cake to be baked and ready to be consumed. :D

Please don't let it be a lie. That would stink for all of us.

Hmm, if all the leaks are true (and I confirmed it myself, by personally checking the sources of everyone who mentioned it), that would mean the game would be released 1 (or 2) day(s) after the beginning of the Steam Sale.

That actually only gives it 23 hours and 59 minutes and 59 seconds of delay after the 15th ends from the lowest time zone, though.

I wonder if that's a hint somehow. 23595915. You can put them into two blocks of 4 numbers....

Obviously it means the secret code is to go south, southeast, wait, northeast, wait, northeast, southwest, then wait.

I have no idea where one would use that code though.

Hey, I just noticed Emmett's TSS music collection is also available for sale on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/The-Second-Sky-Emmett-Plant/dp/B00IXR9ZCQ

If you're still not sure whether you want the TSS music bundle or not, you can preview the music there. I'm sure this will be enough to push you over the edge :)

Tendry's New Idea kind of reminds me of Binding of Isaac, is that wrong?

Awesome music by the way, A Slippery Staircase is my personal favourite

Purchased the CD :)

Are we allowed to use the music in usermade holds from media purchased on Amazon?

Yes, Emmett said users who buy the album, either in the game bundle on through a store, may use the tracks in their own holds.
