Epic's died out and we haven't worked on it at all for a while. We had weekly and daily goals and due to life issues involving my -ex- girlfriend I had to put it on hold, which ultimately de-railed the process. Surprisingly it wasn't motivation loss, and I still have a drive to work on the game- we just need to get back into an organized loop of tasks before we can start pushing out more versions.
I told myself however that when progress died down that I would release the source, so eventually I'm going to have to clean up the absolute mess we made expanding this so that its legible for modders.
So I'll release the source whenever 0.6 is done. We actually have a lot done for the version, but it currently demanding art which i'm too lazy to currently produce.
The good thing about the design approach we took is that even if 0.6 is never released, the game will still be in a "completed" state. It has a decent level of polish and can be played from start to finish in around 5-6 hours in my speed runs, which is just about as long as Pokemon is/was and that's good with me since it is much better than the latter.
tl;dr- Epic is probably finished, but that doesn't mean discontinued because the game's already in a completed state. If it is continued, expect a modest update with modding support(source release)
