May Update

Another month, another great set of features on the way. What have we been working on? Mostly programming! Gup (donkey-donkey-donkey) has been doing some great Java work for V2, he's built an entire platform for creating and controlling little characters on a web page. How cool is that?

We'd also like to welcome Rhys to the team - our new graphic designer. No more poor graphics from me (haha), and he's promised us a whole range of pets to launch with V2.

And what have I been doing? A new web site mostly, and helping Gup and Rhys get to grips with what you guys want out of V2. We've got some great features lined up.

But this is where I save the best bit until last. Gup is doing so well with the new V2 that we hope to have a preview ready for next month. That's right - you heard me! No more of this vapourware and non-existant V2. It will be here for you to feed and play with, teach and learn from, and will give you a great idea of what we've been working on for so long.

Thanks to everyone who's suggested more pets and features, keep them rolling in. I've given Rhys a list of all the pets you guys want and he's going to pick which ones come out in the initial release. Don't worry, we've made it easy for us to update later on too!

P.S. The Developer's Kit might not take as long as we first thought ;)
