Yes, I’m skeptical - as should anyone be skeptical, given such limited information and a screenshot nearly identical to that of an old software program. I imagine many on this forum have been burned in the past, or at least disappointed, by out-of-nowhere developers promising neat stuff and expecting instant buy-in. I think it’s important to be skeptical, even cynical; it’s a good way to judge developers by how they reply to baseline queries posed by people disinclined to take it all on faith.

I’d say your announcement was premature and ill-advised, but I’m glad to reserve judgment while you prepare a better reveal, and I’d be interested in taking part in the beta, as well.

The history of Ecco replacements has been grim. From promises to release the original code, various independent developers having something “in the works,” re-branding of the original product, add-ons to make Ecco more robust, to screenshots of an impending release. EccoExtension and InfoQube are notable exceptions. So with this history in mind, you can appreciate the skepticism.

Story Server Folders
Polywick Story Server implements a one-folder organizer system. Polywick’s developers made extra effort to emulate the old faithful folder system.
What’s a tree?

A tree is a grid hierarchy with columns. The first column has lines to show a hierarchy stemming from one main root (“My Computer”).

StoryServer Power Tools — Tray, Keys Lock, External Graphics, Favorites and Distraction-Free
Power-Tool — Show Tray

Sometimes, Explorer crashes and the favorite tray App becomes invisible, leaving the customer unable to access the invisible App. Fear no more. When this happens with StoryServer, you have a second App handy — PolywickStoryServerShow.exe.

StoryServer does not use any registry-specific features. It writes all of it’s configuration data to the %APPDATA% folder.

Power Tools — Tray, Keys Lock and External Graphics

In StoryServer, in the Tools menu, Option is implemented as a Windowless Panel, that, if you take your mouse-focus or cursor-focus off the Window, it auto-saves and auto-closes itself.

Is there a beta available to download?

No clue what this means. If Explorer crashes - which it rarely does - just restart it.
