Since this game has been in development now for 5 years, and since it will be free to play, I had a question for the developers.

Do you all work 2 jobs? Just was thinking about this at work lol.

Sarcasm on the internet? How refreshing! No, Phouriuh, I didn't think they were sitting on their asses. What I was trying to get at was, do they work entirely different jobs as well as make this game? Do they moonlight for other studios? Things more along those lines.

Well as soon as POE comes out i am sure they'll be swimming in dollars or whatever they use as currency in New Zealand Euro? I honestly see the game picking up maybe not right away, but word travels fast among friends.

As far as I know, the project started at the near-end of 2006 in Chris' bedroom. So it was in fact 4 years and there weren't 10 or more people working on the project since the beginning.

It's not a hobby project - the developers are paid and do it as their day job.
