Streaming and the whole concept of 'live' development is actually a topic Soren and I have chatted about quite a bit the past few months. He's been encouraging me to open things up on AtG, and as much as I genuinely would love to, I just think it's too risky with a single-player strategy game so early in development (as many of you already know!). Titles with a multiplayer focus are in a very different boat, as you don't have to worry about broken or incomplete diplomacy/AI mucking things up.

Still, I am hoping AtG will be far enough along that we can start loosening the screws and let our awesome Test Group show off their hard work later this year or early next. :) Marketing and PR are completely different now from what they were 5-10 years ago, and you really need a community on your side if you want your game to do well.
