There's been lots of progress recently behind the scenes, it's just never posted
I don't think percentages are ever a good idea. In fact, statistics show 90% of the time they're made up out of nowhere and don't really mean anything...
Last I checked in esper only had one more VWF to implement(the game needs one for separate areas of text apparently), if I'm not mistaken. I see someone else offered translators, but that portion of the project's already been taken care of, but thanks =p It's going through one final proofread though. After that it's off to testing and that's it.
I don't have real time frame on this though, and most of what's left is out of my court now since I already finished the translating portion, so I'm probably not the best one to say exactly what's going on anymore. It's definitely NOT dead though, let me assure all of you
I'm also preparing something special of my own for the game in the meantime that I've been working on everyday recently, so this project's still in my mind daily. Nothing's been forgotten.
Hopefully we have more news soon
