Yes, what I had long suspected has now become official: PAWS is cancelled.
It’s sad that it will never be released, as it was a fun game and with more time put into I think it would have made quite a spiffy game; however time is a resource that is in scarce supply. To find out more about what happened you can read Lemmy101’s blog entry about it (it’s more to do with his and CaptainBinky’s experience with another project, but it does go into why PAWS is not possible).
On a more positive note, I did learn quite a bit from the experience (my first runcycles, tiles, and more), enjoyed working on it, and I’m hoping to use the sprites I worked on in another project so it won’t be a complete loss :) I may release some more art later on, but for now here are two character portraits from the selection screen of Mr. Spiffo, the sly raccoon, and Pancake, the cheerful hedgehog:
