I have finished porting the game to be a single-player game. Now I can continue with finishing some of the final screens left and write the manual and tutorial for this game.

I am truly sorry for the lack of news in the recent weeks. Obviously there has been a major delay in the release of the game (which is why one should never ever give out any release date, but most times one just cannot resist to do otherwise). I don´t wish to bore you with the details, but my private life circumstances changed dramatically and on top of that there are technical problems with the online part of the game. At this point I am not satisfied with the online performance of the game and I am seriously thinking about releasing it as a stand-alone offline single-player game. Some of the online features could be implemented later, but it is important to me that the GAME runs smoothly and perfectly from the start.
The good news is that the game itself was and is almost finished. Tweaking it to be a stand-alone game, writing the manual and further polishing it will take more time though. I will keep you up to date and work as fast as I can.
But … if I may … the game is lightyears ahead of the old TV Manager. In the end you will be glad for the additional work put into polishing the game. I believe that this is what indie game development is about: To add good ideas, remove some that didn´t work out and give the project the time it needs.
