True, it's been a long and delayed step... I'll take it you're on our forums?
Anyway, it's always been hard to bring the game here, since all the work is done behind the scenes, and hardly exposable by screenshots and that kind of stuff.
Still, progress has been steady, and the project has been running for so long that we decided it deserved some more exposure.
Me being one of the main spriters, I'm mostly on a mission to gather talented pokemon spriters all in one place, which I think can be done if they get a peek at all of our amazing sprite art. Who knows, maybe I'll leak a few from time to time? ;)
