Reminder:

Make sure your build is at or higher than the latest build posted below. If it's lower, verify the game contents to force an update. It's also important to remember that the sandbox depot is not updated regularly. This depot is only used for confined testing. If you were working with me on one of these confined tests, please remember to opt out of the sandbox depot so you're always receiving the most up-to-date build of the game.

Introduction

As Diamond starts to approach what I would consider to be "beta" and quickly begins to shape into what I expect the final release to look like, I thought it might be a good idea to experiment with an official blog to help track development progress on the game.

This blog will largely target people who are currently testing the game on Steam and currently have access to the beta in their Steam library. It will not be advertising features or functionality, but rather keeping tabs on the changes being made to the game each time a new build is put out.

As part of this blog, I'll be mentioning things that are currently being worked on, what is planned, known issues, and functionality I would like feedback or testing done on.

What isn't this blog? This blog is not intended to be the only form of communication I expect to have with people currently taking part in the beta. I still want to maintain personal contact with as many people as possible and discuss things on a one to one basis. The purpose of this blog is just to document changes and communicate changes more efficiently to more people at once.

If you have any questions, the best way to contact me is still via my Steam account which if you have access to the game, you already know is: Silver Aura or http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197992085439/

Again, this blog is not intended to be a way to subjugate communication but just to better communicate changes to the game with more people, more consistently. Please don't hesitate to contact me directly for any issues or questions about the game.
