Something like that. Roots has disappeared and I have no idea where he went.
I've been around, but haven't had any motivation to work on Allacrost because it honestly wouldn't do much good. Allacrost needs game content, and while I've tried, I'm not good enough at creating said content to drive this thing. I'm not sure who is good at it who could help us, nor how I could even go about getting better at it. If that person were to come along, I'd be happy to help out. I know the C++ code pretty well, but that's mostly mature at this point and continuing to work on that won't do much good.
If anyone wants to create a game with the Allacrost engine, let me know. I can help with molding the engine for whatever someone may plan to do with it. Make a post, send me a PM/email, or check into the IRC channel. I'm not hard to find.
