Been a while, but this week has seen some progress!  Finally... FINALLY got our UI up and running.  Our main writer has been tied up in a work transition, so nothing has been happening there.  We have a some new help with animations, but they are taking forever to render.  We are planning to release without them for now, adding them after we can get them all assembled.  If anyone has recommendations (other than getting a monster comp to manage them) please let us know!
