There's a song by Shaggy, "It wasn't me", that is running through my head. If you're familiar with it, it's somehow both catchy and vile. I've had ex partners describe me that way.

The song is running through my head because I'm not the one who accidentally launched the Tau Station Kickstarter several days early. But it's done.

And they won't let us restart it.

So maybe it's not our intended launch window. Maybe we weren't ready. But we're owning this. We're making this happen.

Please help support the world's first Biblio-RPG. It's a massive, immersive, narrative sci-fi MMO. And it's over 400,000 lines of Perl. Let's show the world what Perl can do.

Even if you don't want to join in, please share this with everyone!

Here's the link to the Kickstarter.

And here's a link to the game. It's free to play and runs in any relatively modern browser, so you won't need to download anything or spend any money.

    This kind of incident may have good repercussions despite of the initial mistake. I usually try to see the positive aspect of it.

    How is a game like this written in perl? What libraries are used? Is it some special version of perl interpreter built into game engine which is coded in another language? I didn't even think your could really program a graphical intensive program with perl?
        Oh...back when we could meet in person. Thanks for sharing this!

    That's amazing. I forgot I had it in my bookmark for quite some time, but I never really played.

    Even though I didn't go too further into the game I already have to say that it seems pretty amazing.

    Well done and the best luck on the kickstarter!
