I remember hearing about that this game will get an expansion, but there hasn't been much news regarding this released. Is it still in development with the intent to release?

Yes, it's still in development with the intent to release. It's on pause right now because of other projects, but we'll definitely return to it.

I've written sporadically about the development and the latest post about it is here: Burn a Bigger Dystopia is shaping up – tweaking, tuning, and troubleshooting.

That post dates back to early October, though, and changes have been made since then.

that's been a common refrain. Too bad, this project has been stuck on "35%" for a couple years now. I love Scythe, but a Euphoria expansion would have been more welcome than a Scythe expansion. Oh well.

Yes, this one has been set on hold because of other projects more than once.

We started out with some stuff that was too complicated and not well enough presented, which is on me, so we've been iterating on the expansion multiple times with the help of playtesters to get it right.

We'd rather take the time it takes to get it right - and believe me, I've poured much more time into this than any other gaming related project I've done in my life .

I've been chronicling some of the process, challenges, and lessons learned on the blog linked to above.

I've been spending a lot of time tuning the balance between Rebel and Oppressor players, tuning the knowledge+morale economy, combatting swinginess, making the new action spaces useful more often, and working on markets and recruits.

It has been harder than I hoped, but there's progress and I think the expansion is in a better place than it was than when we restarted a month ago.

I should add that we've been on hold since December because of Charterstone, Gaia Project, Scythe: The Wind Gambit, and Between Two Cities: Capitals.

For projects where our solo modes will be included in the box from the beginning there are hard deadlines and so we have to divert attention to those. Right now, though, our primary focus is this expansion.
