Legends & Labyrinths - Art: Viktor FetschThis is not really an update for the status of Legends & Labyrinths because there’s not really anything new that I can discuss right now: The hold-up remains the artwork that was offered as a contributor reward. When the original artist flaked it initiated a series of cascading failures.

But I did want to generally assure people that progress is being made. And I’m hoping to have an actual update sooner rather than later. Until I have something actually concrete and in my hands, however, I don’t want to get into the business of publicly counting my chickens before they hatch.

I appreciate your patience, and I hope you can believe me when I say that nobody wants this ordeal to be over more than I do. There are days when this book feels like the Rock of Sisyphus to me, but I have to honestly believe that eventually the rock will find its resting place; you’ll all be able to enjoy the game; and I’ll be able to move on to new projects.

    It is a shame that a reward for 2 backers is holding up the entire project.

    Is there a way to buy or get access to the black book beta .pdf?

    the reward is not holding things up its not being worked on and you are being lied to andew

    I appreciate the creepy paranoia, jimmy. But more than a hundred people have already received copies of the Black Book Beta. Backers have a playable version of the game in their hands. The only things remaining to be done are the art, the final lay-out using that art, and then the final proofreading cycle.

    @Andrew: With that being said, I’m not taking anyone else’s money until I have a clear and definite path to final release. Since things have circled back around to the point where the original artists who didn’t flake out on me now have time available in their schedules again (and are working on the missing pieces), I have a great deal of confidence that this will happen in the near future.

    I also have a great deal of confidence that these pieces are going to look awesome.

    I look forward to seeing it. Good luck!

    Any updates on this?

    Anything new on L+L? Even monthly updates would be useful, considering it is now November. Should I give up on seeing this in 2013?
