While perusing through the News section on the homepage, I ran across this.
So we definitely will be getting an Ep. 13, just unknown as to when.

Man, that Episode 12 was great, wasn’t it? Will Torval crush Martin? Will Edda reach him in time? Will Fernando convince Wendy to come back to the light and start wearing blue again, rather than purple?
In the beginning, Episode 12 wasn’t going to be a cliffhanger, we just ended up with so much great footage that the episode itself would have been way over fifteen minutes. So, we decided that the time had come for an extra episode! However, sitting down and looking at the footage in the rush from Episode 12’s release, we realized a few very important things.
Episode 13 was too short. Cringe! Finishing up Season 1 on a seven-minute episode just wasn’t going to cut it. So we gathered the team back up and headed back out in to the woods to shoot some more stuff.
We didn’t budget for an Episode 13. Double cringe! The coffers are a little drier, which means the post-production team can’t be paid as much, which means they have to take other work to supplement.
The episode’s post-production phase is sitting right plunk in the middle of convention season, which is one of our major avenues for money- and fan-gathering. Our production team is the same as our marketing team is the same as our post team, and they only have so many hours in the day!
I guess what I’m trying to say is that we hit a bit of a snag here at the end. We’ve prided ourselves on our quick turnaround time, so it grates on me a little that we’re being held up here at the end of all things. The final episode will come soon, but I can’t tell you when. I can tell you that it’ll look amazing, and that you’re going to love it, and that I wish I had the money to give it to you tomorrow! This isn’t some ploy to hold you hostage, either – if you decide to donate to our second season fundraiser, it’s because you love what we do, not because we’re threatening to not release our final episode. No threats here, Episode 13 is coming!
To entertain yourselves in the meantime, go check out some of our fundraising videos over at Phasefirefilms – http://www.youtube.com/user/Phasefirefilms – and trust that the mysteries of Episode 13 will be revealed in due time!
