Here's the news you want the most: Mercury version 1.0 is DONE.

The game WILL be out tomorrow. No delays.

Future updates will fix the very little that is broken, as well as add an extra layer of polish to the second act that I simply didn't have time for.

Expect it out at about 5pm Central.

This is a no post blog post. I did nothing on Mercury today. No, today I moved back into my dorm room. And, after accidently driving into a snow bank whilst attempting a uturn and being pushed out by some nice fellow Minnesotains, I didn't exactly feel like it either.

Oh, and I will be uploading ...

I am a bit behind schedule on Mercury at the moment, though I am positive that the release date will be met. Today I did some fine tuning of the final boss, as well as create a nice scrolling credit sequence. I'll be working really hard a little later tonight. But anyway, here's the credits that I wrote:

Well, surprise surprise! I decided to take a break from Mercury today, only having started back on it about an hour ago. Needless to say, this means that I haven't yet finished the level editor and am quite a few hours worth of work away from completing the final boss. I'll be working for about another 40 minutes before I take another break to watch the Microsoft CES Keynote (major Microsoft fanboy here!).

I finished another level today, as planned. I plan on getting some work for the final boss out of the way later tonight as well. But, anyway, I've decided to make this post short. Here's two new screenshots:
