Big Picture Games has announced a partnership with some folks in Honk Kong who want to try to help develop the game for the Asian market. Their new partners have provided resources to go from two very part time, largely unpaid programmers to a team of 13 including 5 full time programmers. Links to their first two posts about this are below:
We continue to have a small but persistent presence in Agon. The game is quiet and perfect for harvesters and crafters, and for those who relish a fight there are many opportunities for small scale PVP. It is not the old vicious Darkfall- tho there is often some risk! e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in checking it out.
