@Daveyd  thanks in advance for any combat beta uploading :D

Alright I managed to complete the beta solo with a barbarian this morning.   I think they nerfed enemies in a recent update as I recall getting killed by a giant toad in the swamp with 40 something HP (this time they only had around 15).

Anyway here's the video (HD available).  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pTyPscf-Yo

There's still an issue with the 2nd to the last fight, where it's difficult to move near & target the orc archer.

Thanks a lot! No one ever showed the desert section. Had no idea that existed :)

Posted by Ceres Games on Kickstarter 7 days ago:-

Sorry for the latest radio silence - this year comes with a lot of unscheduled disruptions for each of our team members.

As soon as we know some hard facts, we'll asap write an update about the development schedule of the game. Our business guy is currently working on it, while the rest of us is trying to make a living with other jobs meanwhile. We'll need to wait for the outcome of those talks, then we can make definite plans when the completion of the game will take place

Well, good thing they also bothered to post it on the official website and/or the official forum....

This is a joke anyway. Started off with some assets already in place. Got more than the target funding which should have been enough to complete the game. Almost doubled that by getting a grant from the government. Now somehow can't complete the game.

First and last Kickstarter project I ever backed.

I'm afraid the game is dead. They have no more money.
They should allow access to the combat version for money

Here's a summary of what's going on based on their Discord comments & my experiences with the demo:

They're hopeful Steam Early Access will start sometime next year but not able to give a specific date yet.

The core team (CEO / level designer, programmer, & writer / quest designer) are still working on the game, but only part-time. We got lots of bugfixes to the combat beta over the summer, including squashing a nasty bug causing crashes for Win 7 users. Combat demo is very stable now, but there's still some bugs and missing features.

Their CEO is talking with potential publishers / investors to get them more funding so the core team can resume working on the game full-time. The pandemic has slowed this down a bit as everything has to be done through virtual chats, rather than in person meetings.

At this point, most of the art assets are done (though I think they want to make more character portraits and polish existing ones) so aside from bugfixing & implementing remaining features what they need to do is create more content (i.e., quests) so the game can move to SEA.

As to why they don't continue to sell beta access or pre-orders to raise funds, it's reasonable to assume it's because (1) this would not raise the amount of funds actually needed so the core team can resume working full-time (2) any publisher / investor they're in the middle of the negotiations with would likely frown on that... considering that a deal would involve giving them a percentage of all future sales

I hope that for Christmas, they will have found a financing solution. I wish them and that they will make us a surprise with images, videos and a schedule on the game. This game with the videos, images already broadcast corresponds well to D&D.

The writer talked about possibly putting together an update showcasing some early game quests before Xmas. 

But as far as their development situation: they are just working on the game part time until they can make a deal with a publisher or private investor.  Negotiations are ongoing but they won't be able to share any news until a contract is signed.
