On our walks we see lots of squirrels, rabbits, and birds. Sometimes we see coyotes, bobcats, and hawks. Today, we found a kitten.

Ahhhhh! Hope it isn't a Bobcat kitten or half breed. That happened to my husband when he was a kid in Arizona. (halfbreed domestic/bobcat mix)

Looks and behaves like a normal kitten to me. Although half bobcat would be interesting.

Purrhaps. If it keeps growing and getting bigger than a normal cat and if it grows ear tuffs, be careful. It's bite will be worse that its bark..err, meow.

I just finished up the 27th alpha build for Drox Operative. I seem to be making more steady progress towards beta finally.

Indeed. In a prior post it was stated that Din's Curse had 29 alpha builds. Drox Operative could of course end up needing 40+ to reach beta, who knows, but we are at least getting close to the turning point based on past titles.

Feature freeze, that's funny. Normal companies intend to freeze their features somewhere near alpha (usually before) but since we use such an exploratory/iterative design method that doesn't work out so well. That's especially true when we hit beta and get a lot more feedback.

True, but the most important feature in Soldak's games never changes: a dynamic world where player decisions matter. Many indies start with a simple idea like that and then iterate/explore themselves into making a completely different game than the one they set out to make. Soldak, on the other hand, seems to start with a concrete design goal in support of which new features are developed.
