Still working at it. LOTS of things happening behind the scenes for the re-launch.

Looking forward to the re-launch. Good fortune with all you are doing.

Thanks. The major issue is that we're transitioning from hardware servers to cloud servers; while working through other biz and technical issues. It's a long, expensive, and arduous process.

Would you say it will be most likely be done before the end of 2018 or during 2019?

Sorry for the long silence.

There are quite a few exciting things going on and which I can't disclose at this point; but only to say that Alganon WILL be coming back. And this time with a worldwide release via an established MMO partner.

There's quite a bit of consolidation (e.g. see gamigo buying Trion Worlds) going on in the gaming space, especially in MMO space. So things are a bit touch and go for the most part.

I have a LOT of money invested in Alganon, and part of recouping that investment is to relaunch it via a third-party partner and in the best way possible. We're working on that.

Usually 3rd party publishers botch games by wanting to milk them and not listen to what players need for the game to have a sustainable playerbase.

I've seen so many games rise and fall and disappear into oblivion because of P2W and greediness.

Hello everyone! No, Alganon is not dead.

They are currently working on the transition and some other issues. It will, in fact, be coming online soon. Patience! :)

The biggest problem that Alganon has is that it is an MMO. So you can't just turn it off, unplug the servers, then plug it it back in. It has been running on legacy servers for many years; and when 3000AD bought it from QOL, I made the decision to not only move it to cloud servers, but also to make certain revisions along the way.

In addition to that, the game never really had that much marketing since 2012; so not a lot of people knew about about other than than the 250K+ accounts who already knew about it. So I've also been working with several parties on partnership deals which would see a territorial release as well as targeted marketing for it's eventual relaunch.

Those of you who were around since the start, will also remember that I did the same thing back in 2010 when I took over the game. It was subscription based etc. It went offline for some time while it was being retooled for F2P etc. It later relaunched as F2P[qol.com], (I also refunded all subscriptions paid up to that time), then we added PvP[qol.com] etc

The game has not been sunset or I would have announced it as such. It's coming back as soon as everything that I'm working on completes. Yes, it's taken some time, but that's how these things go. Plus, we're not like other larger companies that handle MMO games, and thus have lots of people, resources, and money to do things like this within a reasonable time frame.
Soon(TM). Looking forward to that day.

So, is there a time frame? Really looking forward to play.
