    I sympathise entirely. The programmers are worried about creating the art, the artists are worried about getting it in-game. The solution? work together! :)

    Great work FIFEers. Keep it up.

    I've read your blog post and I hope you'll get a good grip on things that got out of control.
    A (long) vacation comes to my mind :D

    Hello and welcome to yet another FIFE news update!

    This time we got quite some important news to announce: the FIFE-based real-time economy simulation and strategy game OpenAnno released its first public milestone recently. The primary purpose of this release is to show the framework in action and to attract some new interested developers for the OpenAnno project this way. Although there is rudimentary gameplay available, don't expect something too sophisticated our you'll end up disappointed. Their release comes in three flavours: precompiled binaries for 32 & 64bit Linux distros and a win32 installer:
    * OpenAnno 2008.1 release download site

    For the ones who want to get a first impression before downloading the release, there are screenshots and an official release trailer for your viewing pleasure :-)

    Screenshot:


    Release trailer:
    * Low quality youtube version.
    * High quality MKV version (H.264 + Ogg Vorbis >> Matroska container).
