DETOUR is progressing, and Thomar has a zombie laptop.
No, seriously. Its LAN cable port died and then rose from the dead under the full moon to feast on the brains of the living. I’m posting from a wired connection right now.
Not Taking Any Detours
Now that we’re a few weeks into the new site, I have come to realize just how very lucky we are to have this new site. We made these changes because the old server died like the worthless hunk of junk it was, forcing us to make changes to the website and get the forums back up. It’s like if my computer died, and suddenly came back from the dead as a super-cool zombie laptop with a go-anywhere wireless connection and a hunger for human flesh.
And we all know how cool a zombie laptop would be. It’d be cooler than the new Sandswept site! But only by a little.
And, as you’ve probably noticed, we’re continuing our improvements to the site. Things here and there will change, and we still would like you all to point out any problems you see on the site. Lamentably, we’ve had to drop the old news archive and we still don’t have any of the old DETOUR screenshots.
Blame it on the zombie server. Oh, never mind.
We’re hurtling haphazardly towards our heavily heuristic release date. We’re really breaking our backs here to get DETOUR working, which is one reason why we don’t have any screenshots yet.
DETOUR, however, looks extremely nice. I was just talking to Zander about it, it’s really come a long way since I joined Sandswept. And yeah, there are still a few little bugs in DETOUR that really detract from the game (otherwise we wouldn’t have to be working on it.) And so, we work on.
I really wish I could show you the game, it’s breaking my heart to not be able to. Wipes tears from eyes.
Still, I know this Community can handle it. You’re strong! You know it’s worth the wait. Just hang in there and we’ll let you see it as soon as it’s ready.
As soon as it’s ready, I promise! Seriously, I’ll bet you my zombie laptop that you’ll see some DETOUR screenshots soon!
(Geoff, please give me something to bribe the fans with, they’re frothing at the mouth!)
If you haven’t got a forum account yet, I need to ask: WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU!? Just click on the Community tab and click the link at the top to register an account. We’d love to get to know you! And your friends. And your family members. And your dog, if he happens to have an email address. We’re not discriminatory.
We’re also still taking suggestions for forum achievables. Just post them in this thread.
Also, don’t forget to follow us on that new-fangled bird-watching site.
This is your chance to make your mark on the Sandswept Community! Thanks for reading, and we’ll see you next week.
Pardon our dust.
