I'm planning to release the game without a sponsor since I can't find anyone interested in sponsoring it fairly. It means there probably won't be a sequel (we had one planned out, with a bunch of improvements, that was going to be started next), since it cost too much to make, and it's clear there's not going to be that much interest in it outside of fans of my current game, but I hope the people who do play it will enjoy it.
As for when I'll release it now, I'd like it to be soon. It may have to wait until we're done with a server transfer for the site before I upload it, or I might risk putting it on the current machine and hoping it doesn't explode.
LYR 10 is waiting on the last few pieces of art so I can finish that up.
