Well it's been a fun ride. I got to build my universe from scratch again, learned a lot, paid some people money increasingly did not have, and now I'm almost ready to start my first non-beta DDD.
Sadly, this is the end of active development for Battle Mines. I am officially broke. The plan now is, I'm going to take a job with a mobile games studio and learn how those doohickeys work. I'll work there for several years until I get stable, then I'll borrow a bunch of money from rich inlaws, and make a mobile game that kicks ass and people actually want to play!
Thanks for all the awesome. Don't worry, servers will remain up and bugs will be fixed (at some point). I'm just letting you know that Red Asteroid Games is in hibernation mode as of a few weeks ago.
Edit: Gad, this post is ridiculously bleak now that I read it again. I'll be working on Battle Mines, what I'm saying is I feel it is mostly done now, it "works", and everything else I do will just be polish and upgrades. That said I do plan on introducing a radically new feature next week, and you can bet your asses I've never going to stop making games too, I love this shit!!!!

Well, I'm glad to have contributed in my own small way. $9 might not be much, but at least you can say you made something. Good luck with the mobile games, they're all the rage. If at some point you have an app that has code but needs graphics, one of my high school friends is an app interface designer who knows his shit. Drop me a line - you have my email.
