January 1, 2012: Happy New Year to all Newcomers and Islanders!
On the 25th of December we have started testing the new English/Hungarian builds for Windows/OS X. I'm disclosing this after a week of delay for two reasons: One, I was waiting for test results (pretty good so far!), and two, it took me a week to recover from the crunch time that completing this build took.
The end is in sight, and quite near. Soon, just before the actual release we will publish an updated, informative promo poster in English about the many recent changes and improvements.
October 25, 2011: We are pleased to announce that during the last 12 months Ultimate Newcomer underwent an extra expansion phase, and as of today this expanded version is an official entry at the IGF 2012 Independent Games Festival Main Competition.
