I’m a bit concerned and confused as to what is going on right now with the state of the game. There were posts on twitter showing Dev’s now working with Larian Studios. I think this could be great for the game, but can we get an update or an announcement on this from the Dev’s? What does this mean for Boundless? Is this next patch the last patch? My concern here is that Boundless, which has an amazing home planet network, is going to become like Minecraft where you have to buy or host your own universe. This would kill the game me personally. @Leahlemoncakes@james
I am normally not one to jump onto the doom and gloom train, as I tend to prefer to try to have a positive outlook on things, but after reading the following statement, It is a little hard not to.
“Now it’s come in-house. Although we’re yet to learn the details of the deal, and whether Larian has bought the studio and under what terms.”
I have seen projects become abandoned or otherwise destoryed because the parent company deems that project useless to them in terms of profit or whatever motivates the parent company.
So this makes me more then a little concerned at this point if Larian now owns Turbulenz or not.
Because someone who dresses up in plate armor while speaking to James, it doesn’t really give me a friendly Impression, Is hard for me to tell if that is just Cosplay, or someone who has that large of Ego, or a combination of both, if that person happens to be James’ new boss and they have that large of an Ego, then that is a little unsettling for me personally. But I am sure I am reading too much into that aspect.
I hope the fact that the next update to the game, which gives alot of control to the players to host their own stuff, is not a precursor to possible ditching/abandonment, and that it is just a happy little accident that this news and Leah lemoncakes’ tweet just happens to come around the time of the next update.
I asked directly earlier this year in a post addressing @james and as seen in the link they have no plans on shutting down the public universe or stop development of the game. I really think if they thought that it was going to be shutdown then they would tell us.
Because of his response below I do not think this is the case and you are worry about nothing. But I could be wrong, but I think it is doubtful.
Boundless need OUR attention. The universe is ultimately ours to populate and make alive.
As long as it exists on servers let’s not worry and make it what we want it to be.
Whether updates happen every month or every quarter doesn’t matter as much as the game is in pretty advanced stage already and provides environment to live in and creatively shape for all current players and a lot of new ones (should they join).
