Project Update - Blue Tunic

Hello everyone!

First and foremost, I owe supporters of this project a huge apology. Yes, there has been a complete lack of updates for a while, despite my reporting that there would be more progress on the project. I pretty much lied. Yes, I'm sincerely sorry about that.

To get right to things, here are some quick renders of the first version of the Blue Tunic. This Tunic will grant Link a Defense Boost as well as underwater breathing capabilities. Long-time supporters may recognize the design from the original sketch. I hope to have the Red Tunic posted sometime soon as well.

I do apologize for leaving the scene without much notice. The only thing that keeps me coming back to this project is the support I see online from all over the world from dedicated Zelda enthusiasts.

My career circumstances have changed, and I no longer have the amount of 'spare time' to work on non-profit projects like I had in the past. I'm learning C++, OpenGL, Flash and xCode/Objective-C for work. I'm running my software development and marketing company full bore, and am tied up in working in the photography industry right now.

I've also published a new book yesterday. The writing is the easy part... Marketing for the book is both expensive and time consuming.

This is very off-topic, but if anyone enjoys Zombies, please do check out my new book that published just yesterday. You can download the PDF eBook for free or buy a paperback for $22.99.

Yes, I am a novelist and it earns me money, unlike non-profit fan games :/
Really though. If you like Zombies or gaming, you'll probably like this book.

**End of shameless plugging

Thanks guys. I know it's excruciating to crawl like this, but I can only work on very small aspects of the project at a time now. I'm literally clawing for the time to work on Ballad of the Wind Fish.

To be honest, we should only be expect small updates for a while, such as new items, weapons, equipment and minor bug fixes and graphic updates.

I appreciate your loyalty and for staying interesting. I really am sorry for be so slack.


New Chatbox

G'day mates. I've implemented a new chatbox, since the previous "flooble" chatbox just seemed so dodgey. This new one should be over 9000 times better.
