I recently stumbled upon this (as far as I know) unreleased game by Vincent Baker:

http://www.lumpley.com/storming/

Searches for "storming tower" and "fighting monsters" (the name of the first book of the game) don't turn up any hits on RPGG.

So my questions are:
- Does anyone have any news about the status of this game? (I hope the designer hasn't abandoned it, it sounds a game I might like to try...)
- Should the game be added to the database? There is a PDF of the (non-final version of the) rules available for download, but is that enough? Especially if it is unclear whether game will eventually be finished?

Re: Any news about "Storming the Wizard's Tower"?
So, to answer my own questions: In a recent episode of "The Walking Eye" there is an interview with Vincent Baker. It is mostly about Apocalypse World but towards the end he also talks about some other projects. Regarding "Storming the Wizard's Tower" he said (if I understood everything correctly) that it has some mechanical problems and that he is still trying to figure out what to keep and what to change.

So, I guess we'll have to wait and see...

The game is incomplete according to the rulebook.

It's phase one of a three phase game, the rules as presented are only for the introductory phase.

There are, however, guidelines for properly adding a game that's in development in the Guide to Data Entry#prototypes

Having just listened to that episode also, I can confirm your interpretation - he mentions it has design issues he's still trying to resolve.
