Fifteen months in the making. Almost 1000 changes/bug fixes and improvements to gameplay, user interface, audio and visual of all kinds. The open beta to version 3.0.0 of Day of the Dragon can now be downloaded from my Google Drive. The purpose of this open beta is to find bugs, but I am open to suggestions of any kind. Please send your suggestions and findings to a.delas485@gmail.com or write a message on the Hiveworkshop.com thread.
