Yup, it's been quiet for a while. But worry not, we've working hard on the game, and it's quite finished now. Our promotional efforts are a bit lacking because we've had our hands full with the actual game (all kinds of stuff, testing etc). There's a long-due announcement about a certain feature that we will announce within two weeks I think, for example...
Shadowgrounds release dates are something like this:
Finland - late October / early November (not 100% sure)
German-speaking - late October
French-speaking - early December
Australia - October/November
Scandinavia - Q1 2006 (sorry!)
Rest of the world - Q1 2006
So as you can see we have some releases this year, and the rest is Q1 2006. There's nothing we can do about that because publishers and retailers need time to prepare for a game release... We can talk about some special arrangements if someone wants the game asap but can't buy it from the stores this year. More on that later (after the game is finished).
