Thank you for your continued support of this game.

I ran a few clans back in the day, I've been in a few, I've played countless hours of this game. It's simplicity and ability to be itself without having every feature in the universe is a testimate to it's amazing community and gameplay. I hope this sees a resugrence in players to a point where things can be quite more enjoyable. But even if we don't get it to that point all those years ago (I think I started playing maybe 8 years ago???) we still have something... I think that says a lot.

By the way, are you folks still taking donations?

Thanks for all the kind words!

I hope this sees a resugrence in players to a point where things can be quite more enjoyable.

Funny enough, there is a small upwards tick in player numbers again since the middle of the year. Maybe people just spend more time playing games in the darker seasons, and we still have fewer players than a year ago, but I think this is the first time I noticed a gradual increase again:


(careful, this is a live image and may look different when you visit here in a couple of months. Also don't mind the big gap in the graph, that's just a glitch caused by the server move - the time between copying the entire system over to the new server and actually switching over from the old server to the new one)

By the way, are you folks still taking donations?
The old paypal donations link should still work, many thanks if you want to contribute. We're only using it to pay for the domain name, since it would run out fairly quickly if we tried to use it for the actual server :)

In case you're wondering, our running costs are about $1 per month for the domain, and $6 for the server since the last move a couple of months ago (which more than halved the costs).

I shot you folks some money. Always wanted to back in-the-day, but it didn't help that I was unnable to be legally employed or have a bank account. Either way, glad I can still support this. I'm really interested in bringing more people and and keeping this going. Let me know if there are more ways I can help.

Oh boy, congratulations to GG2 and community!

Yes, I've just happened to remeber this game and comunity today, and, after years, ended up coming back to take a look on how things are looking like. This game and community were some of my main things to care for, back in 2010, my High School years.

It was the first (and only) game that I've played competitively, as well as the first place where I started uploading my art, on those specific art sub-forums. In fact, exposing my art here was a kick-off to making more, receiving feedback by lots of people IRL, and helping on my decision to apply for a carreer on Industrial Design. I was already a Mech. Engineer student, so I coupled my skills with the technical knowledge. Mind you, as silly as that sounds, it was kind of a inffluence for me.

Long live!

Thank you, my friend. Nice to see you here again. Didn't know some of you guys were still hanging around.

In fact, that makes me curious, to know how many are still here. I''ll DM you so we could catch up.

Congrats! :trophy:

I still remember playing the early versions of this game, where everything was imbalanced, the maps were shit and you couldn't climb the stairs because the servers were lagging so much. But it was still fun! And over the years you turned it into an actual decent game!

It's pretty amazing that the game is still alive. :z5:
