Knowing that makes a big difference. Even just this kind of quick update helps. I'd argue you need not only another developer though, but a communications/marketing person. Who knows maybe somebody within your own community would consider doing that second job for something like a free subscription. It's not in my wheelhouse so don't consider this self promotion by any means.
Their job would be communicating with the community the latest updates/developments with the company. Making the forums a fun place to be. Looking for ways to engage the community, etc... For a small company it doesn't have to be all glitz and glamour and advertising, but certainly that might be a part of it, depending on your track.
Speaking of news. It would be nice if there was a news section right in game. This becomes more important as you move into app development for ios and Android. I personally dislike games that make me hunt for the latest information on what the company is doing, or take me out of the app and launch me into a web browser. If I wanted to go that route I could just search it out myself. I'm lazy.... I want to see in-game that there are things going on and that a game isn't stagnant. When this first launched I was much more engaged in the forums, but with the lack of updates I've mostly stopped looking.
Anyhow, appreciate your quick response and good luck finding the right people for the jobs! I'm hoping we'll have more game updates soon.
