/throws down hammer, for no reason.
Backyard BBQ's talents are 100% feature complete, and apparently working (cross your toes.) There is undoubtedly some balancing and tweakage much later down the road-- especially once players start kicking the tires, but for now, I'm calling this a major milestone. There are just a few more gaps to fill in before releasing a test candidate for those who have opted in for beta releases. Best case is a few weeks out. Worst case is heat death of universe. So close.
As a reminder, we're doing a feature release first (just features, no major content changes.) A public test build for the feature release is what's close. An engine update will follow, and finally, the expansion content will hit. These are further out. I don't mean to sell the feature release short, though, this bugger is huge.
A full writeup of all the available talents is now available here:
There are a great number of cherry picked dev screenshots on the @zigfrak twitter feed, check them out and give us a follow!
