That's because there is no announcement yet. They'll announce probably a week or so before it's out. Last time they preempted the game, it was rushed and put out with bugs. This way, they can get it done, play test it fully, and not destroy themselves in the process. Please be patient. Enjoy the company of the forums in the mean time :)

I'm going to move this to general discussion, where it belongs. Also, please don't create excessive threads asking about episode 4. I realize this is your first one, but we've had many people asking about the release of episode 4. We don't have anything to announce at this time. So far as I'm aware, there is no internal date set for it, let alone a public one. We're taking our time with this episode to try and avoid the mass of bugs that occurred with episode 3. When we have something to announce, believe me, you'll know.

Well we had an internal date but the cookie famine on Mars forced us to push it back.

I concur with you, Waltz.

I don't have programming, animation or art skills myself. I possess writing skills, (hopefully) some PR skills, and some minimal ability to beta-test. There's more to a company than animation or programming; all these facets work equally. There can't be a game without preliminary art, a storyline, or some PR work to get the word out.

All the 3D objects are textured with 2D images, which you seem to be good at. I don't know if we need help in that department though.

For the 4 Winds? I'm looking into to it, but I can't do anythign till after Easter. I am SO busy you wouldn't believe. I have a major convention in Rotorua that lasts 5 days. I'm not running it, but it takes alot to plan for it >.< Every night has a theme night, clothes, gear, ANZAC stuff...

So I've been told. My ex tried to show me Maya though- he's the most geekiest computer geek I know and he couldn't figure out that program so I don't know how others do XD

I hope you do apply after Easter! I understand about being busy. I am just trying to get through the next three weeks alive then it is summer break where I will swamp myself with work.  ;)

I'm trying to get through to the end of April, and then I'm free to work for Phoenix as much as they want me to.

Would you be able to offer a rough ballpark? Are you hoping to release it this year? Next summer? After the Toronto Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup?

Do you have any rough ideas on when you plan on starting testing (alpha, beta or otherwise)? I know it's hard to say dates because people will inevitably hold you accountable for them either way and I apprecai-, aprecia-, am thankful for the time spent on this project for a free game (Ep3 was amazing despite its bugs).
Grateful about a free game currently in development & offering support to the dev team in hopes the final episode will be released. Will keep waiting for updates.

We're already doing testing and yes Episode 4 will be released this year.  Nothing more specific than that however.

Who should I contact about volunteering to be a tester for this game? I'm getting quite good at crashing the game now and might be able to break it further given early builds.

and what a nightmare that was. 12+ animation sessions, wooooo!

I know people are excited but we are working really hard to bring you a quality game. As stated we would like to avoid a buggy release.

Episode 3 was big for us not only in sheer content but a lot of personal passion and excitement.

So I think we want to keep that true to the overall rest of the project and give the remaining episodes some more TSL before we release it into everyone's hands to enjoy.

You mean TLC? ;)
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!
