I'm incredibly, incredibly sorry; what I believed was going to be a quick integration of the remaining code cascaded into a far, far larger task than I was prepared for and there's no way I'm going to be able to finish this in my current state. I've hardly slept in the last 3 days and I'm making zero headway at this point; I need to stop and resume this tomorrow. The fact that I bungled this planning so incredibly is completely inexcusable on my part and I am totally ashamed. There is absolutely no reason why I should've allowed this to happen and I can't express how sorry I am for continually failing time and time again to realistically and effectively schedule around these updates and account for all the work that needs to be completed ahead of time.
You guys frankly deserve far, far better than I've been doing, and I am immediately going to hire an actual experienced, capable Project Manager onto the team to replace me in these duties because I have been grossly incompetent at adequately scheduling and coordinating the project and I can't apologize enough for this failure. Coordinating a project of this scale is simply beyond my capabilities and I've been far out of my depth; we need an actual Project Manager and I should've hired one months ago. I promise I'll do everything in my power to make amends for this screw-up and get the new build into your hands ASAP.
When I started making this game I had no idea of the scope it would eventually reach. There is so much I've learned in the last year that I wish I had known when I began. I never imagined our Patreon would actually reach $5k per month, much less $23k, and I'd be lying if I said that adjusting to these heightened expectations has been painless. I am, however, still now and have always been totally dedicated to the project, and even moreso to the people who have supported us and allowed us to do the things we love for a living entirely under our own creative control. There is not a day that goes by that I am not bewildered with how incredibly, absurdly lucky I am to be in this position, and there is nothing that pains me more than knowing when I've failed to live up to promises that I've made to the people who make this possible. I'm incredibly indebted to you all and I'm not about to forget that. You aren't just a bunch of people paying for a porn game to me; you're the entire reason I'm able to pursue my dream job, and to do so entirely under my own creative vision, and that's a big fucking deal.
