He doesn't seem to be adding anyone on to friends list, so I've been trying to get in touch with those already there. So far the two that have responded haven't ever heard of Topia, but I'll keep trying.

Odd, Joshrmt, who is listed as one of the creators of this game, goes online (and is online right now) quite frequently, maybe someone can ask him?

One day somebody is going to sue one of these cocksuckers...that will be a good day...

Report the shit out of this scam.

So, even facebook group has been deleted. I guess that's it.

The head dev (and only dev at this point or so I hear) is Josh Griffith. Josh has a Steam profile:

http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198007620434

Judging by his profile's activity he logs in almost everyday and plays games. So I'm guessing he's still alive and doing stuff. Althrough working on Topia Online doesn't apper to be a part of that stuff. Maybe someone should shoot him a friend invite and kindly ask him what the status of this game is. Quite a few people invested money in this, and I'm sure they whould love an explanation.

Hell, even the game Clang that rised half a mil and failed gave an explanation of there failure.

It's been 3 or 4 weeks now, that the Topia website and forums have all been down. Not a single word from the dev(s) on here, on Facebook, on any forum anywhere.

I think they've finally taken the money and run.
[MILITIA]Nova Sep 18 @ 9:47am 
They have been offline for a week or two. This happened once before, however I am not sure if this time is different or not.
Grand Poobah Muckety Muck Sep 17 @ 1:08pm 
Speaking of the forums Nova... where are the official forums? I can't seem to find them. http://forums.topiaonline.com/

@Painhertz
I has not been 6 months, it has been maybe a week or two. If you weren't banned from the forums, you would know.
Grand Poobah Muckety Muck Sep 17 @ 1:57am 
Yeah, whatever happened to this game? The website and forums have completely vanished. I googled the game and found a reddit, tweeter, and facebook page but nothings been updated for a few months. Wasn't this game going to be 100% live on Steam by the first week of September? I recall reading that on the official forums. I wonder whats going on with this game? Maybe it is all just a viperware scam...
Painhertz Sep 16 @ 11:58pm 
6 months after this scammers last post and the "game" has completely disappeared.
Painhertz Sep 16 @ 11:55pm 
This game was a scam from day 1. As one of the people suckered into it from back almost 2 years ago rest assure that I and a friend also suckered into it have keep records of "every" lie this guy has told in the last two years and will post a bit of it on here. (He got away with at least $20k of peoples money).

Scam.
Hardsun Jul 28 @ 1:08pm

Noxiell Jul 10 @ 3:39pm

this looks quite awesome. wish you luck with it, ill come see when its ready ;D
dogzerx Apr 19 @ 9:22am 
I freaking need this game. The game is hardly abandoned, it's have been improved internally, (improving engine and such)... bad news we'll have to wait just a bit for more eye-candy, good news it's going to be ready much sooner than we think!

Still hoping this works out.

I'm really looking forward to this. And I ordinarily hate MMORPGs, because they're just rehashes of the same old thing over and over, like a glorified Diablo clone.

Topia Online was going to be, in my eyes, a true pioneer for MMORPGs. A world that is entirely shaped by the players? A world where true adventures, adventures that couldn't possibly be borne out in the real world, could begin? A world without rote repetition or mindless item auctioneering?

Josh, you're onto a real winner here. I really do believe that there are great, wonderful things you can accomplish with Topia Online. Just hold in there, man. Be faithful, even when others' faith in you waver.

Don't give up. So many dreams will be fulfilled with Topia Online. The future of MMO gaming is also at hand. I'm rooting for you, Josh!

This project is not abandoned, it's under heavy development after all the information we gained from the alpha phase. Hang tight for the next phase.

tytgamer Mar 11 @ 3:03pm 
forget about this, half of the team abandonned the proyect and the owner is in dept with its players because he cant pay refunds, they couldnt give us stable patches, it took months to get a patch just to see grass on the world, topia online developers tried to do a game engine instead of a game, and thats when everything went to shit

Any chance of an update, here? The site just has a log-in screen with a note saying chat is being worked on, but I don't see much else.
Carcyn Mar 5 @ 12:41am 
Some really ambitious ideas here im willing to support. I really wanna play this game

This looks pretty sweet
Снизу меня пизда Dec 15, 2013 @ 6:49am 
Поживем увидим,надеюсь хорошая игра будет)
Deux Dec 12, 2013 @ 3:23am 
Слишком большая цена
Скорей всего будут проблемы с багами и читерами (ведь в игре слишком много свободы в плане скриптов)
Мне лично не нравится стиль
Какая защита от ботов? Написать скрипт на рубку леса можно за две минуты.
Нужна возможность добавления мобов (спрайты, текстуры) путем голосования сообщества а не выбора разработчиков.
В остальном мне нравится идея.
sorry too lazy for formalizing in english ;)

I want to play it ASAP

Bhare Dec 6, 2013 @ 5:18am 
Game was supposed to be in beta in february, then supposed to be released in july, then it was supposed to be released in december and now it has no release date and hasn't even reached beta (or a playable state for that matter). I wouldn't greenlight this or throw any money at it until it's actually playable, the devs seems incapable of sticking to timelines or keeping promises.
LoserRichard Dec 4, 2013 @ 2:57pm 
Game is still a work in progress. It is still under development and has been changing directions. To follow development I do not suggest going to www.topiaonline.com as this takes you right to where the game will live. Instead, go to The Forums[forum.topiaonline.com].
I will try to see if I can get Josh to update the page

Is it game for mobile????Видел похожую графику в многопользовательских играх для мобильного телефона.(при чем на смартфонах онлайн игры намного круче есть)
Kosteh Nov 24, 2013 @ 4:15pm
