In this post, I want to talk a little about where ENIGMA is headed and what we are trying to achieve.

As many of you saw, I recently announced that RadialGM is being developed and that I have intentions of making it a fully-featured IDE. Accomplishing what we have so far has not been an easy task. It has already taken several months to develop the new architecture and continuous integration platform. As I've said, I'm very happy with the results, and I think that when the IDE does become stable, it is going to be a tool that once ENIGMA users try it, they won't want to ever go back to the way things were.

Just since this video was made a few of the bugs mentioned have been fixed and for the first time in years ENIGMA has an issue count in the double digits (at this moment 84).

There are a number of tasks left to be completed before I believe the IDE and new setup can really be rolled out to everyone. I also believe that this work is going to require a few months of development. I've been preparing to launch a Patreon page for the community to get involved and help support the project: https://www.patreon.com/radialgm

We chose Patreon in particular because we did not want to pressure anybody into funding the project, but we value donations and contributions from the community and feel that they should be rewarded. Through Patreon's platform, we will be able to transparently fund the new IDE and give the community things like special Discord roles, recognition in the new IDE, and early and privileged access.

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.
