Huge thanks!

Good morning all!

Since this blog was started back in March last year, there have been over 20,000 views!  I am both humbled and honoured by this; the project started as my own dream of making a modern version of Journeyman and I have been fortunate along the way to have people join the team who share that dream.

The dream wouldn't be anything without the encouragement of the fans though, and it is a real boost to have so much interest generated by people who love Journeyman.  On average there are 40 or 50 hits on the blog per day, and the recently started video updates have boosted those figures even higher.

The last few days have seen a flurry of activity and I attribute that in large part to the efforts of our new community liason, Ioannis "John" Kypraios, who has been beavering away on the official blog and Twitter feed - please check them out and follow at the following links:

Don't forget to tell as many people as you can about these blogs too; fan projects are run "by the fans, for the fans" so the more people know about it and keep up to date with progress the better!

I was asked a while ago if I could put a progress meter up on the site; unfortunately not.  This is a fan project and not a 9-5 job so there are no timetables in place; we all work as hard as we can when we can but sometimes life gets in the way.  The technology is always changing which means that we can do things better.  I also don't want to be in the position where we announce a release date early on and people are then expecting that to be the case; taking inspiration from other projects I've been involved in over the years, "it'll be done when it's done" :)

I will continue working hard on the project as always, endeavouring to produce the best version that I can.  With the help of the talented guys and gals on the team I'm sure we will present you with a very polished version that you can enjoy :)  I am incredibly thankful that you're all along for the ride too.

All for now,



  1. Perhaps the progress meter could simply show the list of tasks, with which ones are already completed. No timetables, but it would give an idea of how much work is done and how much remains.

  2. Hi Shawn,

    I'll keep it in mind; we're working on a lot of things that we can't openly discuss at the moment but once we have a task list I'll see about adding it here.
