Rev is absolutely still active; it is quite the hive of activity at the moment!
I'm aware the front page needs a contact form, and I plan to add one soon - along with more information on the world and development status. I'll probably add a mailing list for interested folk as well. I'd expect this up before NY Comic Con, as one of our delightful users is distributing Revcards there.
Making steady progress - we have individual plants & animals in existence, and nearly done with buried treasure & resources. Next stage is resource harvesting and inventories.
Returner - if you're still keen, I'd love to take you up on the offer of assistance. Please drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
when you can! If you know ruby, then have I got some work for you!
Anyone who'd like an account, feel free to email me.
...I may actually enjoy programming after this epic project is finished, gosh darn it!
