Ah cool. It has moved on the website and been modified but the promise pretty much stands. Nice find. Thanks.
I bought the game back in alpha 1.2-something, and I'm fairly certain that wording has been the same since then at least.
To those who are surprised about the 4M sales, this is just the result of filling a gap in what games were available, and doing that pretty well too.
I'd be very surprised if there isn't commercial (AAA) alternatives being created right now using faster and better (non-Java) engines.
It's actually not that the graphics must improve, however the rendering capacity isn't that good right now with heavy initial pop-ups, limited viewing distance, limited map height etc.
