That's just about done now, so by tomorrow I'll be back to regular development wrok.

Here's hoping there's at least one more new AGL game before then. Last year was a very good AGL year; we got three new games that year (The Early Years, Outlaws, and Escape From St. Mary's).

You likely haven't heard of it because you aren't a RinkChat regular. In the Game Development room "wrok" is jargon for work on content for RW (sort of like how GotA became GOAT, if you know that story).
