Due to various circumstances, from time, money and energy constraints to just needing to be done with it, some of the proposed features on “The Bet” DVD won’t be happening. That’s not to say it won’t be chock full of stuff, just some things won’t happen. Here’s a revised features list (items with an asterisk are still tentative and may fall away and of course, everything is subject to change).

I guess that seems like quite a bit and I didn’t even mention my and Chris’ personal favorite “Interactive Menus!” Keep an eye out, and hopefully we’ll hit the 11-20 release date (two days before my birthday! now you know what to get me.)
