I would like to take this time to first and foremost make an apology to the community for our neglect of the forums. We have been putting all of our focus on developing the game, and paying our real life expenses as we currently make no money from this project.
That being said, a bright future lies ahead for us as developers of Tatsumaki, and also for you as community members and fans. We have made a shift in the development direction of Tatsumaki and have licensed an MMOG middleware to continue to develop the game. This middleware is already optimized for network connectivity and contains an advanced toolset that will help bring Tatsumaki a new level of depth in much less development time.
Most additions to the game will be scripted entirely in python, which allows us to develop at a much faster pace. The specifications of this new engine are impressive to say the least, we will have proven support for up to 10,000 people on a single shard as well as a seamless world larger than we could ever imagine using.
Look forward to more information regarding future updates, our developer/community relationship, and some pretty screenshots and other content.
The main site
has several images - most of which were previously unreleased, so go ahead and check them out. If you're wondering where the game screens are - they'll be awhile. There is a great deal of work involved to make everything work, and look right in this new engine - but it'll be worth it.
Until next time, thank you from the Tatsumaki Team for your support, and have a fantastic day!
