Some of the Features listed above have already been started, such as the block building construction and ship building construction.
After launching crowd funding campaign, the first goal is to finish off the block building construction for YAARRGH!
Once complete the primary focus is on network coding, and building of the server and client.
These are very high priorities, because once completed, we will be able to release an early feature access for any fans of YAARRGH!
More monsters and animals will be added before the INDEV Release launch, such as the Lava Golem, Goblins, sheep, chickens and fish, with better and smarter AI than in the prototype built.
They will also have more complicated behaviours that affect AI reaction and thinking.
