AD: Release Schedule

Well, because development is further than I anticipated (not only that but the workload is bigger as well), I thought I would add in a Release Schedule in a blog post. This is it. I hope that the dates in this Schedule are incorrect, and that the BETA's are released earlier, but only I can control that, so here it is, the Approaching Dawn Release Schedule!

Title - for example the "Game Name" + "BETA or RELEASE" + "BETA/RELEASE number"
Release Date - this is the expected release date for the BETA/RELEASE, it should be at most this specified date.
Importance - this is in terms of feedback, with it being "very high" meaning that the BETA requires very constructive feedback so that necessary fixes may be made so the game can be at the top of its ability.
Feedback - the feedback line provides the type of feedback expected in the BETA. Things that are not mentioned and do not fit into any category can be given feedback during any stage.

Approaching Dawn BETA one:
Release Date: 30th June 2010 has been released! Check the BETA #1 Release Post for more information.
