Thanks Al!
I think I've seen you around the nintendoage homebrew boards.  Great to hear compliments from a fellow homebrew guy.

The instruction manual is in progress, and I wanted to share a sample. I have been hesitant to give out any official release date, but I can tell you that the end is in sight. At the very least, there will be a demo by the end of the year - maybe sooner. If you PM me with your email, I will add you to a list that gets contacted at the time of demo release, cartridge release, etc.

I now have a development blog.  I'm hoping to add some sort of content weekly - if I have nothing new to talk about, I will add old stuff, which might be scans from when I was designing parts of the game on paper.  I used to go nuts over the Nintendo Power articles that had to do with game development, so maybe you'll find this to be cool.

The latest entries in the blog feature a preliminary sketch for the box artwork, and an interview from pixlbit.com.

The box and manual look amazing.
Who and/or where did you get them done?

Thanks!  First I'll point out that the artwork was a combined effort from Chris Johnson (hand drawn objects), and Johannes Reinders (computer graphics).

I found a place to make boxes and manuals myself, and would actually like to offer other homebrewers an opportunity to use me for a source of their boxes and manuals.  I can also supply dust covers and styro too.  Personally, I am thrilled with how great the box and manual turned out - I have shown them to relatives along with some original boxes & manuals for comparison.  They have all been quite impressed.   :)

I have a new demo now available on my blog.  In this demo, you'll get a look at the new resource collection, new battle casualty scene, new music on transition screens that didn't have music before, and the new building found in the game.  My blog has been getting updated about every week or so.  As always, please send me your email if you'd like notification when the cartridge is released.  Thanks!
