I already knew the news, but that was still a little painful to watch. That being said, I loved the video, and your continued motivation. I hope to see you guys in the Unity scene soon - best of luck!

Original design on the left, new design on the right. In 5 minutes I learned how to not suck at pixel art so much, thanks to +Andrew Sandifer.
