I've been working on this island for the last four years or so (since late 2007 - where has the time gone?!?) and I am getting very close to a public BETA.
Delays have been caused by real life (in all its forms ranging from divorce to travel to school to work). I really REALLY want to release this as it has been eating on my soul for a very long time.
I am getting very close to releasing it even though it is still not complete and not up to my standards in all areas.
Here are some teaser screen shots (all images at view distance of 10 kilometers):
