So, I've been working on a new dmod for a few months. I'm kind of turn between offering some details of the game here to whet the appetite of possible fans and avoiding spoilers. The game has a few surprises, a somewhat unique story line and series of sub-quests. It takes up more than a third of the screens and I plan to add quite a few more. It has some fun special effects, a few new graphical elements and what I hope is an entertaining sense of humor. Here is an idea of how big it has gotten:

Well, I'm just about to start work on the final region of the map that Dink must work through. After that, there are just the "end screens" and some developer testing on my part.

After that comes the beta release to those few who offer to help. If you'd like to be one of those folks, then contact me in the PM area of the DN. (I'm talking about the Private Message area of the Dink Network website of course!).

But there is no hurry to "sign up", as I'm pretty sure it will be well into summer (ending in August in this part of the globe) before I'm ready for the beta release.

I disagree. 
I'm not sure what Saturn in this dmod is (screenshot #4), but in the real world, it's certainly one giant cyrillic ђ

Yes, it is certainly a large symbol for Saturn. But I won't tell you more 'cause I don't want to spoil any surprises.

I've created 4 "places" for this adventure so far. I'm about 65% through with the next to last place (#4) and then I will have to work on the final location, which will be a very small one. Then, I'll be conducting some developer level testing, and working to reduce variable counts, so I don't see the dreaded "out of var space, all 250 used" message and things work as they are supposed to work.

Then it will be beta testing time!
