Wow, so after somehow miraculously recovering my lost game data I've been moving ahead with the overall production. The game is approximately 2/3's complete with the majority of the games fundamentals and engine fully completed. It's mostly just a question of buffing out the game by creating more enemy animations and levels, NPC's and dialogue congruent to building up the story.
Anyway, just thought I'd give a quick update and let people know that it'll be finished hopefully before September (though this may not include online testing from people on the forums), and finally here's a conclusive screenshot.
