Lastly, I want to reassure you all that we're back on track and kickin' butt with phase 2. As mentioned, updates will be coming more frequently now, and as the world becomes more fleshed out, we'll be reaching out to higher tier backers directly and with surveys to get their in-game rewards moving ahead. Note that this will still be at least a few months out, but I want to reassure you that we haven't forgotten. We just want to make sure that the world is ready for you :)
