    I'm 6 days late [sorry!], but I just remembered about this now.

    On May 6th, 7 years ago, KAG's first version was released. It was a very simple game, without even bombs, flags or shops. You can still download one of the first builds from here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0BzXRVswtSNcockhEcWU3U1JPdkU

    I've made a similar thread already [6 years of Bunnie], so I don't really want to repeat it all again, but I'm sure KAG had a huge impact on many of us. It's a great game and I'm hoping it will live for much more.

    Happy birthday!

    Starting playing kag a week after steam release. Would have loved to have played the pre-steam version but was unaware of the game :(
    Favourite game to date, 600 hours strong. I've met some amazing people and have some really fond memories (the aus kag community is one of the best bunch of people I know).

    Damn, I was distracted for it. Was planning on (another) retrospective since my last one is a bit out of date at 2016... Interesting how much of the closing thoughts (2 years old) still ring true.

    The source says this in the way the build number is determined:
    Code:
    // Apr 17 2011
    So looks like time from MM starting the project to the first mediafire upload (lol) was less than a month.

    Yup, after cancelling Link-Dead I said to myself I'm gonna make something new in 2 weeks or else I die (I was running out of savings). So I did just that + a couple days I think, of getting Geti on board and his graphics and 2 weeks later voila KAG17 :). Don't remember much from that time, other than it was kind of hectic and crazy. By the end of May the whole press started writing about KAG and we had major networking problems. But we survived :). Gonna play some KAG22, I haven't played that in 7 years.
