I can't believe it! It's been so long since the last release, and I'm incredibly proud of this version and all the hard work that has been put into it over the last two and a half years by the whole team! Download it from the page on this site! The source code can be downloaded from GitHub.
Wow, what to even say here? It's been a long journey to get to this point, spanning eight years, being indefinitely shelved, and then a complete rewrite from the ground up. It's also spanned three cities, two states, the entirety of high school and college, and numerous other transitions in my life.
I've officially been working on CrystalDust for a decade at this point. That's almost half my life, and is just an insane amount of time to put into anything. But I'm proud of what I've done, and restarting was definitely worth it even if the game isn't back to where v2 was. I'll be doing semi-frequent bugfixes depending on the severity of bugs encountered, but other than that I'm taking a break from CrystalDust for a bit.
Merry Christmas, y'all, and (I hope) a happy new year.
