It's "done."

It won't be finished. Ever.

I won't be releasing a beta version or a demo, as I think it would diminish from what was achieved in CC2. I might post a list of ideas we had that would show the direction we wanted to take the game, but nothing more.

Please stop asking about it now. It pains me.

i want to experience the final battle between monkeynuts and Dink Smallwood

I won't be releasing a beta version or a demo, as I think it would diminish from what was achieved in CC2

I strongly disagree i think a demo or a beta would help to give us some clousure.

There are so many unanswered questions
-What happens to fabian,alecia,dertin-Do they all die out from default or your actions from CC2 reflect CC3
-What happen to jack and jill of the s clib 7-Do they both go there seperate ways or they reformed to become badder and stronger
-What happens to monkeynuts- does he still rule the castle dos dink stop him or does dink become lazy and lets monkey nuts to resume on being a a33hole.
-What happens to Dink himself-does he fight monkeynuts and he retires and lives in he old house.
-Will there being any old returning characters-Matridge,fabian,alecia,King daniel,Jack and Jill?
-Will it be as long as CC3
-Will it have new enemies
-Will it have a sub plot as a prologue to CC1
-Will it have new weapons
-Will it have new spells
-Where will it be set

And that just on top of my head.

-What happens to fabian,alecia,dertin-Do they all die out from default or your actions from CC2 reflect CC3: YOUR ACTIONS FROM CC2 WOULD HAVE BEEN REFLECTED.

-What happens to Dink himself-does he fight monkeynuts and he retires and lives in he old house. MONKEYNUTS WOULD MOST LIKELY HAVE BEEN THE FINAL BOSS. THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN MULTIPLE ENDINGS.

-Will there being any old returning characters-Matridge,fabian,alecia,King daniel,Jack and Jill? YES.

-Will it be as long as CC3 EXACTLY THE SAME LENGTH.

-Will it have new enemies YES.

-Will it have a sub plot as a prologue to CC1 NO.

-Will it have new weapons YES.

-Will it have new spells YES.

-Where will it be set DINK'S ESTATE AND THE SURROUNDING TOWNS.

All this iS moot, but if you care that much I don't mind answering these things.

-What happens to the Salamak prison itself dos it remain the same or since dink destoyed the energy barrier or something, or dos the prison collapse.
-where does dink end up right after CC3 salamak could be 300K away from the original town and how does he get back
-What would the main tileset be like CC1 was grassland CC2 was a desert Would CC3 be more of a arctic setting
-would a part of it be set in the orginal goodheart kigdom like CC2

"I'd like to be a tree..." 
As a long time CC fan, I have a few questions myself, if you don't mind me asking. Not concerning the gameplay, but the project itself.

First of all, why not release the demo on this site? I know it is majorly unfinished, but I think it would please a lot of people to even see a glimpse of CC3. Maybe the feedback would even inspire you to one day start working on it again. Cause, let's face it, CC3's been "done" multiple times in the past. You know, if I was a really evil person (which I'm not), I'd release the demo from my computer.

Secondly, why does CC3, in your mind, have to be more bigger, better and epic than CC2? I can understand the goal of improving your skills as an author, but there really is nothing to improve in CC2. It's pretty much perfect, for a D-Mod, and a game. If somebody can find a single thing in CC2 that needs improving, he/she's a nitpicker, and if you, Sabre, aim to make CC3 better than its predecessor, you're way too much of a perfectionist. The sad, or the great (I don't really know which) part is, you have managed to do this. Even in the short, unfinished demo, you've managed to make the characters even more in-depth and interest-catching than in CC2.

Thirdly and lastly, why do you feel the need to do this by yourself? I know CC3's a very personal project to you, that you hold very close, but literally, you have not (at least publicly) asked for any help during this project, and let nobody in on it. The ironic part is, this D-Mod is such a big deal, I think everybody on this site would actually help in the making of it, even in the slighest way they can. So speaking for myself, if I was the author of the CC -series, before I'd quit on CC3, I'd try out collaboration work with other Dinkers. You'd lose nothing in trying it out.

Well, that ended up being a rather long wall of text. I promise after this, if you want so, I'm done giving my 2 cents about CC3.

1 - Um, I just didn't feel it was good enough. It certainly needed polishing, particularly the latter sections. Seriously though - Feel free to upload it if you like. I don't have a copy on my laptop anymore.

2 - That's just me, unfortunately. Arik's ideas for the game were much more sensible and smaller in scale, but I was too stubborn! Also, CC2 was made at a time when we were living at home together and could work solid days at a time on it, rotating on and off.

3 - *Shrugs*

I agree with skull not much people are exepecting better then CC2 at the best id say just as good as CC2.
Atleast a demo or beta would really satfied your fans E.G. me

Warcraft series(im not talking about the MMO crap)
Killzone series

I don't necessarily feel a demo or beta release would be a good idea if it's in a really unfinished/unpolished state. What would we gain? An idea of what could have been? That still leaves us wanting more. There's nothing that will truly satisfy the CC fans at this point :/

Well, I'm not going to upload the demo. However, I feel that since CC3 is pretty much done for, everybody, including you Kyle, would rather have the demo than nothing. And if it will end up being released one day, you obviously wouldn't have to play it. But as I said, that's not going to happen via my actions.

You should be careful what you wish for when you ask for unreleased material. This thread reminded me that I wrote up a bit on an unfinished side story to the Cloud Castle series a while ago. I've included a link below, with Sabre's permission. The text is all mine - you'd probably get more interesting discussion on where Sabre saw it going from his quarter.

Cloud Castle 0.5 - Nerux

The first one is an above average d-mod with a lot of flaws (difficulty, for one).

The second one is just SO BEST.
