After a 10 day delay from the given date we're finally here, some bugs took longer than expected and the normal day to day events of a student held it back but we're here with Spirit Age's Alpha v0.1
The new "big thing" included in this version of Spirit Age is a feature I call the "Live Mapper", which removes major parts of the game's content creation from the traditional dm/dmm editors. Instead, we build our maps, create, load & save our NPC and stores all at runtime, and soon even the quests will be created using this tool. It's an admin only tool currently, so as players you'll experience the results, which hopefully you enjoy. We have future plans to allow people to build within their own plots of land, but that's much further down the road.
