That URL leads to the latest update. If you take off everything from "/posts" onward you get the main page.

I like this idea, but the level of funding doesn't match their level of ambition - I would expect this to be in the range of $3-4 million based on similar projects I've seen. Maybe everything is that much cheaper in Russia, but I am afraid this will be another of those projects that runs out of money early and produces nothing. The team isn't experienced at producing CRPGs or similar and while I love the idea of high-quality visuals, allocating 30% of your budget to art assets and less than that to the sum total of programming and testing strikes me as a recipe for disaster.

Caveat emptor as always.
