Due to some unexpected family issues, I don't think I'll be able to work on the project any time soon. However, I should be able to re-join the development team in about a month.
I don't know if the game will still be in development at that point, but if it is, I'd still be very interested in working on it.
Due to the issues with the tinychat with members not being able to access it. We will be using the chat box on the forums. Please join us soon as we should finally be mapping by this weekend.
