Abandoned?
I haven't heard anything new about progress towards finishing this game recently. Is it an abandoned project?

Honestly, I hope not. I love a lot of things about this game.The music, the enemy design, DUCKS, etc.

No, it is not cancelled. After Flightless was submitted to Greenlight, Nitrome began to continue to work on it. However, I believe it was in early 2013 that they began to not work on it that much (sort of half work on it). Now that it has been Greenlit, Nitrome is currently deciding what to do with the project. No work is being done on it currently, Nitrome is deciding what to do with the project. Basically, no, it has not been abandoned, Nitrome is deciding what to do with the project.

I wonder if they're DECIDING WHAT TO DO WITH THE PROJECT... I was just concerned, since I get notifications for everything new Nitrome does (signed up for their newsletters and such), and I haven't heard anything new about it. No point in trying to make me seem like an idiot. I wouldn'tve posted this if I had any doubt about if I've heard anything or not.

I'm aware they're busy and all, especially with updates and potential reformatting of the Icebreakers game for iOS. They may be focusing on more important things (such as their main form of income -- Icebreakers, again, at this point), and I understand that. They're not as large of a team as they portray in the quality of their games, and they already have enough on their plate. It would just be a little bit nice if they could give us a little bit of info on the current situation. Maybe it's because I missed something, but I (again) haven't seen anything ever since they released Icebreakers.

The situation about Nitrome not knowing what to do with the project was revealed to me by a comment by Nitrome on one of their blog posts. I can't remember when that was, but I believe it was in September, or some time around then. Yes, it would be good to get an update on the situation with the game, however, it is possible that they still haven't got back the project.

One thing Nitrome did tell me was something about Flightless likely coming out in 2014. I can't remember the exact words they said, but it was something like that. And no, you haven't missed anything. There hasn't been any information about Flightless since August/September 2013.

Nitrome is on winter break, so for now their progress on the game will not increase anytime soon.

Actually, Nitrome's winter break ended two days ago (January 2nd), so assuming work on Flightless has begun, work is currently being done on it.

Nitrome has not abandoned it. It is just that Nitrome is REALLY slow. Don't expect this game for at least another 3 years. It took them about 2-3 years to come out with thier first iOS app.

Nitrome is a small team of less than 50 (unless I've been lead incorrectly), so it'll take some time...

Actually, Nitrome consists of just around 10 people, and I'm sure not everyone is working on the game.

Actually, it isn't really know how long it took Nitrome to create their first iOS game, but it definitely is not 2-3 years. Also, Nitrome has said Flightless will likely come out this year. If it doesn't, it will most likely come out next year, but it will definitely not take 3 years for it to come out.

ACTUALLY, the point of this post wasn't for you to try to prove everyone wrong with every opportunity, it was to express my concern with the current state of the game. Thank you for your supposed knowledge of the progress on the game and of the Nitrome team, but I think we get the point already.
