*January 13th Update:*
Okay, so I've started making good progress on my game...
Functionality: About 80% Complete
Design: About 25% Complete
While I've essentially got all the functionality I plan to completed, I still have a lot of design (Graphics & Level Layouts) to do.
Ugh, I keep finding myself a lot busier than expected... I'm going to stop predicting release dates for this game until it's nearly complete. Sorry to disappoint anybody awaiting the release of this game, take comfort in the fact that I am doing my best to make the finished result flawless.
