Honestly, guys, it's time to accept that Zone will never grow into great things without some sort of financial investment. The staff are all inexperienced teenagers ranging from 11-17 who leave once they enter college, taking their 3+ years of experience in their expertise with them, thus the development is continuous of amateur quality. How do you expect things to be actually done when the staff team is more concerned about their grades and academic future than the petty engagement Zone has to offer.
Not to say that Zone's staff team is bad, quite the contrary they are talented, however, in respect to other indie and pixelated games the graphics, the levels, the coding, etc. are all inferior as the indie games all have experienced and invested staff.
