Take note, this is not, I repeat, NOT Milestone 1. Rather, this is a pre-Milestone 1 release of Hexoshi. Consider it like a sort of Milestone 0.9, if you will. Read the full update.

Progress Update: Worms and Animations

It probably looks on the outside like Hexoshi is dormant, and I must apologize for that. Regardless of appearances, I am actually busier than I have been in a long time... Read the full update.

I must apologize for the late announcement of the voting results. I just so happened to launch a Patreon page at the same time as the voting ended, so I forgot to do so. Read the full update.

As the year 2016 comes to a close, so does this campaign. I am glad that it has been a success and look forward to completing Milestone 1 in 2017. But it's not over yet! Read the full update.

Tile Improvements

Over the last few days, I have been updating Hexoshi's rooms to use some new edge tiles I made a few days ago. This improves something about the tiles that was minor, but really bothered me: the walls an ceilings looked unnaturally straight. Now, they look more jagged, as they ought to: Read the full update.

Funding Goal Has Been Reached

Only a day after this campaign reached 50% of its goal, our entire goal has now been reached! It was quite a surprise yesterday when, while on a break during a busy day at work, I noticed that someone had contributed roughly $500 since I had last checked it. Read the full update.

Funding Has Reached 50%

Yesterday, while I was at work, funding for this campaign passed the 50% mark! Of course, this is magnificent; in just one out of about four weeks, we are halfway through our target. If we keep this up, we might be able to fund both Milestone 1 and Milestone 2 at the same time! Read the full update.

Critical Release Failure

This campaign is now over a third of the way funded, which is great! Let's keep it going! :) In other news, it was brought to my attention today that the instructions on the Hexoshi Download page didn't work. Read the full update.

Of Translations and Clones

Even though it has only been two days, we have crossed the 25% mark! I can't thank everyone enough for the amount of support we have received, whether that support comes in the form of a contribution to this campaign or just spreading the word. It means a lot. Read the full update.
