We are overwhelmed at the moment. Once we get unburied and the Munchkin CCG is off to print (and it is getting closer to that day), then we can shift attention to Car Wars. Right now, though, anyone who could put time into this project is otherwise engaged.

We would rather make the game we want and _not_ the game that exists because some date on the calendar strikes us in the face.

Fair enough. I will eat up the Munchkin CCG upon release. Just don't abandon Car Wars.

I see no reason for vitriol here.

The CEO posts regularly in this topic - I really can't see that as a lack of information.

Would we all rather or beloved game was out now? Sure. But they've kept us informed about the delays and the reasons for them.

Understood. thanks for atleast saying that much.

And to another poster, it's passion, not vitriol. this method of communication shows no emotion, positive or otherwise, so it's probably difficult to tell the difference.

Awesome! If there's any doubt, perhaps it's best to take the extra effort to make sure it sounds chipper! Yay!! :)

(I suffer from the same thing in REAL life, btw, so I force myself not to sound like a grump.)

Because really, Phil's answered the same question about 20 times in this thread alone, so I'm impressed with his email tone. THAT sounds neutral, most of the others hear do sound a little on the poo-poo side.

I think we can stop the discussion of the "tone" of the other posters. Let it stand that everyone here is eager to see CW6e move forward again, and that this enthusiasm sometimes sounds more demanding than was strictly intended.

It's been a few months, and while I understand that this project is on the back burner at the moment, any progress on getting the game time down to the goal, or other minor milestones?

I second this! It's been mighty quiet for a long time and I am beginning to fear for my beloved Car Wars :(

No milestones to report, it's still in development, but we just shared some new prototype components for an upcoming playtest.

That dashboard thingie is exactly the kind of component I want in my games these days.
