Sorry it's been taking so long, guys. I haven't been able to work on the game as much as I'd hoped recently, but I'm still chugging along. I ended up splitting myself between a few projects rather than going all-in on this one like I had wanted to, so I apologize that progress hasn't been as quick as I wanted to make it before.
My plan is to have the test version of the website up on Friday, but that's only if everything goes smoothly and I don't screw anything up (things never go smoothly :P). As for the next game update, I'm planning on having a small-ish update next Friday the 28th, but again there's no guarantee.
Once the website is all finished I plan on ramping up the amount of work I can put into the game significantly, but I still kind of prefer fewer, more spaced-out updates. Expect updates to be coming out once a month, but hopefully they'll be much, much bigger than before.
Also, I want to add that if you offered to help me out, I haven't forgotten you! Really sorry for taking so long to get back to everyone, but I do hope to have everything organized such that I can actually support a lot of people helping me out very soon, so wait just a bit longer and I'll be getting e-mails out to everyone who is still interested.
I chanced upon some security issues with how the website is currently set up due to my lack of familiarity with AJAX and I want to rewrite some of it before I put it up for testing. Right now I'm going to shoot for Sunday, but as always that's subject to change.
