I swear I am going to update even if I have to update with my freaking teeth. Aaaaargh. ''

Two years [sic] in the future, huh? YEAH, THE VIDEO TOOK ABOUT THAT LONG, TOO.
JesuOtaku's tagline for her Digimon Adventure 02 review.

This series began around 2005, stopped in 2008, and was supposed to continue again in February of this year as "Dark Knight: Boy Wonder". Still hasn't happened and I don't think it ever will.

"We're a team made up entirely of freelance non-profit non-professional developers who can only spend so much time on this project. This project is but another responsibility next to our other stuff such as education, work, families, superhero alter-ego's etc. etc. We can't spend as much time on this game as we'd like to, and we work with a relatively small team, meaning that even a single member being unable to work due to other stuff has a huge impact. This all makes it very difficult to set exact release dates, and we don't want to post a date out of the blue only to disappoint later."
Steven, Super Smash Flash 2 developer

Wow. Okay, so… What was supposed to be a one-month hiatus has stretched to 14 months and counting, and that is completely my fault.
