The Sonar Islands look a bit deserted, and unfortunately they are. We have had plans to integrate more languages, develope new content and experimente with new interface stuff. Besides that, we wanted to sharpen game mechanics and bringing movement into it and rebalance the whole system.
But life sometimes has different plans, that interferred with ours. A very serious accident happened to my team member, a month ago, first we are very happy to have her back alive, but second recovery is still going on and we do not expect her back before next year.
And therefore the future of Sonar Islands has to wait, till all of us are back on board. In the meanwhile we will activate the events and hopefully we will reach our goals for the game and in life.
