I went into my e-mail and found my pre-order e-mail from 08/01/11. Its been over a year in beta. As a customer I was wanting to know when I could see a finished product.
We used to try and talk about release dates. Then we learned that our forecasting was pretty terrible... That and the game has continued to just get better and better as we keep working on it. We wouldn't have had DannyB and Grant Kirkhope doing our music if we'd been super strict about the first date we gave ourselves internally for release. We wouldn't have most of the art we do now, etc.
It's a hard line to tread and we know that there are a lot of people out there that want the full game out yesterday. We've stopped adding new content now and are just polishing and polishing. Of course, I say "just" when it's actually way more work than simply doing the numbers for a new boss or dungeon, but that's how development goes. We're all watching each other to make sure we keep moving towards the game's "final state" as we see it.
Beyond that, I'm afraid that all I can say is "we're getting there". But at least you can see how we're coming along. I hope that helps
