Well, it looks like I might as well post the first official Kickstarter in this thread - hopefully you won't tear me to pieces if I at least provide a demo first:

Harmonia v0.0.2pre2 (Windows / Linux / Mac OSX) - Development Build

And here, of course, is the link to the Kickstarter project:

Kickstarter's a cool thing, but I understand the knee-jerk reaction against them. I honestly hate advertising, and I feel a bit dirty every time I make a post and spam the Internet, but I also like the idea of being able to develop this game full time and get a small team together to make the artwork, the music, manage the forums and website, etc. It's also a really nice way to cut out the middle man and support the developers directly, which is especially cool for projects in the Arts that rely on donations or philanthropy. What I personally want out of the Kickstarter is to have just enough to stay alive while heavy development is underway. Quite a lot of the game is already done and I feel the need to finish it.

Anyway, about the demo - it connects you to the server using the old text-based interface. The new 3D interface is still a work in progress, so until the game is fully playable from there, it's rendered in the background. A 3D map viewer is available in this latest version. We're still working on compatibility and fixing a lot of bugs, which will be the focus of the next build.

Enjoy!
