Quote from: dew7 on May 18, 2007, 05:26:57 PMTrue, but if you set a goal for yourself and set a date to have that goal done by then it is more likely to get accomplished. Imagine, you going to school or work and nothing has a date of completion then nothing or very little would ever get done.
Quote from: GunHoMac on May 20, 2007, 01:24:08 PMI'm sure Delling will use this as an opportunity to express his ever-so-vast literary knowledge to divulge a convoluted, misguided, and pointless argument about the nature of trees...and how they affect the time-space continuum further impeding upon development habits of humans hence forth they extrapolate their orante abilities to ponder the intricacies of run-on sentences; therefore enabling their desires to relinquish coding time for the sake of fabricated livelihood.
Quote from: Petra Rocks on May 20, 2007, 02:52:05 PMYes, if the team was 'determined' enough and willing to make any sacrifice, including giving up all free time, family and collage the game would get done faster. I think none here will deny that. They don't want to do that, rightly IMHO, and simply wanting it to happen and being 'determined' will not make time to get things done appear out of thin air.

Quote from: Yonkey on May 19, 2007, 09:28:50 AMI think people forget that TSL is something the team works on in their free time. Not everyone has the same amount or even a large amount, and as stated before, people have many other priorities that rank higher which cut into their development time. If everyone were able to work full-time on this game, it would be a completely different story and we'd be able to estimate a release date fairly easily. But the reality is that everyone is either working full-time or in school, thus making it very difficult to predict when the game will be complete.We are getting closer and closer each day, but we're still not at a point where we can announce the release date with 100% confidence.

You should be making a point about the development, release dates, etc...not a display of your ability to do what I've already done. The language you used was indeed high school level...but when you've clearly scanned a thesaurus to replace commonplace words just for the sake of sounding more intelligent...it comes across as convoluted and sloppy. Just make your point, don't sensationalize an expected ability to write a thesus introduction. It's a game forum, not 11th grade English.
Quote from: robertk2 on May 20, 2007, 04:47:49 PMBut from a fan stand point, we are all waiting for this game. I used to check this site almost everyday to see if any updates or developments were being made. Recently its been every two weeks or more. Even though the team is scared of making and breaking a release deadline, I think it would give us--as fans-- some hope. While you guys are busy giving up free time to work on a project that many of you might be tiring of, we see a stagnant web page with few updates and even fewer indications that the game is still being worked on.I think that more focus should be spent releasing screen shots, previews, or even a demo from another part of the game. While I understand that any time spent on the website is time not spent on the game, what's a game when no one who cares is around anymore to play it?Thank to the team, though, for all the effort that they've given. I'm sure if I was told to give up more free time so a bunch of us free-loaders could get a video game, I'd have a few choice words. Thanks team

I, for one, don't have a problem with that.I was just hoping Neil would tell us at least when he would give us a release date but I really am starting to lose confidence in the team. I hope they will eventually release the game.
Quote from: koko_99_2001 on May 20, 2007, 10:02:10 PMAs for the release of screenshots...well, all I can say is you might want to start participating in the contests we are holding (last month was a Book Title contest, this month is a Smiley Contest). There are prizes involved, and I'm sure the three winners from last month's contest will say they liked the prize
