Good to see you posting!

I know that this is completely my fault and the most of you doesn't care about it (it's perfectly understandable), the only thing I can say is that I sorry what happened, really sorry. Now we are back, the Towns development will continue and we will try to post and reply more often in the forums.
At least you're admitting it, that goes a long way.
Neglecting the community right after a launch was a big mistake though, it made a lot of people angry. I'm normally rather calm and it pushed me this far: my email to Steam Support on 14th December
. I imagine you received a lot of feelings similar to mine from other disappointed people. I cannot possibly know how hectic the situation must've been for you, but please don't ever let things go like this if anything bad happens again. Your voice is needed here!
Now that we're moving forwards, cleaning up the store page is a thing even more important than the v9 patch. This needs to be done ASAP, and the fastest way to start is to get some real screenshots there. Those screenshots aren't supposed to be background images for game library, they're supposed to be things people use to make purchasing decisions. They need to show the game. You're also going to want a video there eventually. If you don't have time to make video, ask the community to make a video to showcase basic Towns gameplay. Maybe someone here on the forums could draft a new description to put on the Store page too, one that is clearer about the game being a work in progress.
You have a lot of fans here ready to help you, never forget that. This past week I've been going through your old blogspot, the old nabble forums, the old wiki, your bay12 posts, etc etc. The game didn't get this far because of you alone, it was because you worked with the community and embraced their enthusiasm. I believe continuing like that is the only way you can get through this mess now, so don't try to do everything on your own yourself. There's a lot of work ahead!
