259,961

18 months ago, it seemed a fairly bold lie to claim that the finished version of Blue Lacuna might reach 200,000 words. Now, I'm hoping to pull it in under 300,000, but that doesn't seem likely. (Why am I hoping this? Among other reasons, it takes just under two minutes to compile at this point. There are also several "bounds exceeded" bugs that Graham and I have been leapfrogging with various releases of BL and Inform 7; I'm terrified I will hit a wall at some point that prevents the game from getting any larger.)

Hoping to get the testers going again at the end of July. Today: implemented the full-complexity version of the Epilogue.
