A Quick Update

We haven't posted in awhile so I thought I would give anyone who cares a quick update. We are still working on EGv8, but we have not nailed down a date for v0.5. We are slowing down the development cycle for awhile due to busy project schedules at work.

A lot of new features have already been added to the svn repository. Feel free to download the latest source and test it out. We don't guarantee any stability on that code, so you may want to wait. We have to finish nailing down exactly which features will make it in v0.5. Once we have the road map in place I will post an update here.

In other EGv8 news, we may have a new artist. I know you love the artwork that we have, but there is definitely room for improvement. The new artist has already drawn up a few replacement frames and we love what we see. Hopefully she is motivated enough to continue. If not, I guess you are stuck with what we have.

A preview of things to come...

I know many of you are wondering, 'How could this game possibly get any better?' and for awhile so were we. Well in EGv8 v0.5 you are going to have more to worry about than kids running onto the screen and chomping on your face. Kids will attack from above and below. Some of those little beasties might even throw things at you. And if you thought strong kids were tough, just wait until you meet little Fink, the character inspired by the v0.3 contest winner.

More details to come later!!

Also I would like to give a big shout out to all the sites linking to Evil Greg Vs. Eight Year Olds. The traffic you drive towards us inspires us to add on new features.

If you want something added to the game, please ask! We love attention so much that your idea might get put into the game just for asking. Please look at me!!!!!!

Mailing list and v0.4.1

We had a slight hiccup with v0.4. It completely bombed out with python version 2.4. That has been corrected in v0.4.1. Sorry to anyone that had a problem. Python 2.4 compatibility testing has been added to release procedures, so it won't happen again.

But even more exciting is our new mailing list. If you'd like to receive email updates when new versions of EGv8 are released, then this is what you're looking for. Head on over to our contact page for more information on subscribing.
