The official social platform for ConsimWorld
While I had hoped we would be getting added to the P-500 list with GMT by now, the game is still in artwork. While I'm getting anxious to get published, I know that Tim Park's artwork is worth waiting for. I know it has been some time since I posted anything here and some are wondering what's going on so I thought I would give a general update.
