Notes

This is a general roadmap for development for Junction Gate. It is more or less chronological, but some features may have dependencies on other features that are not yet implemented. Each item on the roadmap is a high-level description only. More details will be provided on each feature once it is slated for release.

Because game development (and life) contains many unknowns, no timelines or dates will be provided publicly. Based on experience, most estimates are wrong as soon as they are given. There won't be a when, but there will be a what. Every effort will be made to keep the community informed about the current status of development. As always, this roadmap is subject to change.
