The Hero Release - v0.39.0


It's been one hell of a month for the AW team, though to be honest it hardly seems like it's been a whole month since version 38. Mrs. Besty had to call him an ambulance this month, though thankfully he's on the mend and feeling better. I've been swamped with work while living out of a hotel room. Luckily it seems that we'll finally be closing on my new house next week, and I've got most of the fires put out.

At the beginning of this month, we spent a lot of time focusing on bugs, and we've continued to fix bugs even after the 38.1 release. I'm afraid that it's another month with a shorter-than-normal change log, though there's still a lot of new content in the game. We've got over 30,000 new words of content for you, with a lot of it focused on pregnancy, birth, and children. Things will be picking up again, and we'll be returning to our normal break-neck development pace soon. Besty is finally back to full time, and I'll be able to start dedicating more and more time to development tasks as things settle down here.

Version 39 is looking to be quite stable, as we've done some extended testing yesterday and today. Of course, please report any bugs you find! Without your help reporting bugs, we'd never be able to get them fixed!
