Alright. This probably counts as the most unholy form of thread necromancy... but under the circumstances, I think it's allowable.
I have, at long last, put together a 90%-functional demo version of this game. The following caveats apply-
* This is no longer particularly closely based on the Majesty franchise per se (though I have borrowed a few of the basic gameplay ideas, with significant modification.)
* There are no sound FX, whether music or voicelines. I need someone else to work on those.
* For now, it only runs on Mac OSX. I am working on a windows version, but as you can see, instant gratification is not my forte. Stay tuned.
Barring some extra polishing and content updates over the next month or two, I believe I have now taken this project about as far as I can by myself. There are a couple of places I could shop it around, but for the present, what you see is pretty well what you get.
At any rate, for anyone still reading- thank you for your patience, and any feedback is welcome. It's been... very educational.
