Towns summary and future

Postby supermalparit » Wed May 07, 2014 7:03 pm
Hello everybody,

as you may know I decided some months ago that the game was finished. Some of you agreed and a some of you disagreed. My reasons was simple, add new features to the game won't make a difference in it and you always will ask for more, so I took my decision.

After posting that and read your replies, I decided to hire someone to continue with the game (Moebius). We agreed to give the new dev a 15% on sales, that was a fair ammount considering the past month sales, a bit less taking into account the february sales. I also thought that with the active development of the game the sales will grow up, but they didn't.

So, well, now we are like 2 months ago, no developer. Well, we are worse than 2 months ago, because we gave you some hope and now all seems over.

But, well, I think still there are some good news to you. There is a well known player who works for one of the bigger gaming companies and he has expressed an interest to get the Towns rights and continue the development. I still can't tell you the company name, but I can assure you is a good well known one.

In the upcoming days we will try to reach an agreement, so, please, I ask you for a little more patience.

If we can't reach an agreement I will, again, hire someone to continue the development. I know you may lost the hope about the hirings but I want to try it again.

Regards
Xavi

Haven't seen any mention of this post on these forums, tought I'd post it here. I don't know if that's good news or not tho. But something could be happening.

Well, if there is still hope that someone will continue to work on towns its good news for me. Is it new dev, new company or community (open source), its better than nothing.

The thing that is little strange to me is what would the new company get from this? I know there is interested to buy out the game, as ben was contacted sever times, thinking that he is still working on the game.

Create town 2? Sell DLC for towns? Dont see that much logic in that.

What they did is the equivelant of Tanking a dump, pinching off the first inch and charging admission for all their freinds to come see the "record breaking" turd.
It wont matter if a third party buys it, ships it in a paper bag straight to your pourch and put some nice fire particle effects on top. At the end of the day either your house burns down or you step in ♥♥♥♥.

No company would actually buy the rights to this. After all the negative press it's been getting and the sales being low due to being two years old it would be wiser to just make a their own DF clone rather than buy this one.

Honestly i dont even know why I gave Towns a shot to begin with, I knew it was a DF clone and I have none of the issues with playing DF that most people have.
