I don't know really. In my opinion, these guys, Mike and the team made a beautiful game which lived a great term and brought joy to a lot of us, making memories forever in our hearts. It was a great game, and no denying it is fizzling out rapidly now. But then, what I'm feeling is that, is it even our place to say such rude and harsh words to the developers? I mean, there's this activity post which is quite rude, and then there's this post which shames them too. Is this all really necessary, is my doubt. I mean, fine, getting to the roots of this, behind the layers of rudeness lies the fact that we players dearly love the game and want it to grow more, but outwardly it looks quite horrid. Like, realistically speaking, the only reason why we're playing this is because we don't have the caliber or resources to make such a game ourselves, and there's a person out there making it and hasn't updated for ages, and we decide to demean and shame him by such posts. I mean, let's look at it from his shoes maybe, the team was small, and is smaller now, and obviously the income generated through this game isn't enough for them, due to which they took up actual jobs irl and kept this as a side project, and still managed to push out some updates like the butterfly and fossils (that was long back ik). It's also true that a lot of things were promised yet not fulfilled, but then in the end of the day, it's their game and their wish to continue it or move on really. I mean, we aren't at that extreme point of the game shutting down, so honestly there isn't much to complain about what you've spent on the game since it's still up. But truly, I too am disappointed at the lack of updates and wish to see this game get the bigger updates, but then recently these mob bugs and stuff sprung out, which I'm sure was as annoying for them to fix, as it was for us to play with. And if you did read Mike's post in the other thread, he said that the fire fizzled out a bit and honestly that's reasonable cause they've been working on quite a good MMO with very limited staff, and he created a new game to have a change of mind and renew the spirit to go on. Of course, this update he gave us totally changes the dynamic of the situation, considering that he mentioned fixing the bugs here would still be a "maybe", but honestly at this point, I'm just glad that I got to experience such a beautiful game and although things aren't going too well, I'm hoping Mike and the others will push it through and get this back running, because I can very well understand the lack of enthusiasm to update this game, it probably got a hit monotonous indeed. But either ways, if they do silently withdraw working on this, I'll still be following bytebin on their new game and any more games in the future, because they proved their potential through deepworld, and as sad as it may be to see it go, if that's how it's gonna be, I'm just really thankful for this game for having created numerous links of friendships that I cherish and value to this day.The reason why we are coming off as harsh (sorry about that by the way, was just trying to make the point clear) was because, obviously, we do love the game, but we want it to continue for years onwards and enjoy the game at it's full potential. After reading your post, I have to agree; this upcoming game is the next chapter of bytebin, and I will support it. Deepworld was a great thing, but all good and great comes to an end. Glad to have experienced it for 4 years.
