I don't blame you for being irked. I almost donated, too, back in the day and now I'm glad I didn't. Sorry, but there comes a point where I don't buy his "back burner" excuses anymore; in a couple more years the project will be a *decade* old, and the last time we got a major update feels like eons ago. Seriously, Chub Pan is the Diablo III / Duke Nukem Forever of the furry community.
Let's face it - the game would've long since been done by now if CGB truly still cared about finishing it. At this point, I'd be thrilled if CGB changed his mind and put a price tag on Pan if it'll give him some kind of motivation to work on it.
