Jesus tap-dancing Christ... 6 to 8 months for a "minimalist alpha release? I also have a different interpretation of what "not far off" means - it sure isn't 6 to 8 months, especially when after all this time they're not even close to pre-alpha stage. As exciting as the prospect of a spiritual successor to Titan Quest is, there's really no point in me following this anymore; at this rate we'll be waiting another 4 years at the bare minimum. I'll start caring again when we at least know the friggin' year the game's coming out.
