Does it have something to do with the metro screenshots I posted earlier, or is there a new Regression in the works? I would love to say both, but it highly depends on time and my computers mood and my creative flow. I'm always trying to push my boundaries and creative limits. This is why I will only release something once I believe it is ready. One thing is for sure, Regression will continue in the future, and the

Something's on the horizon...
