Oh, no, it's far from being finishable, consider it like a pre-pre-alpha version.
Many stuff are still broken. But it has some graphics improvement over the original, and works in VR.

I'm excited of this project. Completing this will allow the community to make a lot of mods and games based on LBA. Like what happened with OpenXcom project. They have completed it and now there are already several fan-made high quality games based on it. I think the priority should be to make fully functional LBA 2 1:1 port, then make it very much mod-friendly, with a lot of documentation and some tutorials, so people can start making games with it. VR support is cool, but it can wait. This project can give the world LBA 3 and much more.

Well, the priority is indeed to make a fully functional LBA 2 reimplementation. Maybe not exactly 1:1 as it is actually more work to do the last 1% for a perfect copy, so my policy is to allow diverging a little bit if something brings a cheap improvement and stays true to the original's spirit.
Making it mod-friendly is also indeed a priority, and the effort I put on the editor is part of that.
However, since this is something I do on my little free time, I need to have something that keeps me going, and sometimes just working on copying the original can get frustrating, so once in a while, working on VR, for instance, brings back some fun in the development process.
So, yeah, making the game playable and feature-complete is the priority, but it's not an absolute priority. I don't get paid for this, so I allow myself some diversions to keep motivated in the long run.

Seriously I have no idea how could I skipped this thread. I've seen your project on Twitch today, and it was terrific. Keep up the good work.
