The Somme - WWI FPS

Greetings Trench Rats,

It is sad news today, news that will greatly upset a lot of the followers of The Somme. Unfortunately we've collectively agreed as a team to let The Somme peacefully pass away. We acknowledge this might come as a huge shock due to the recent post regarding a firm revival of The Somme, however due to unforeseen circumstances financially, The Somme could no longer sustain itself. This comes with the territory of being a real indie game, indie games are plagued with the problem of funding and believe us when we say we did our complete best in looking for a cure. Maybe one day the project might arise if the funding is there, but from strong observation the probability of that happening is tremendously low.

We hope that you understand the severity of the issues that plague such a ambitious project - we want to thank you as a community for being absolutely amazing, loving and very interested in the product.

Thank you, and good night.

- The Somme

6 months have passed and not a word as been spoken about future developments of this amazing game,if the game (god forbid) is dead then at least have the common decency to tell us that you will no longer be working with this project, it's getting beyond a joke now and all of us who support this game are increasingly worried for this game.
So please developers pull your finger out and respond to our pleads and we just want to know the future for the "Somme".

(sorry for the rant people but I just want to express my views and increasing concern for this game)

lol this is not getting ridiculous, just post something, comment maybe a picture, something, show us signs of life, now im patient but this silence tests even the most patient of people, i thought in march one of the devs posted that they would be showing us something soon, its been 2 months since that post. Now im not asking for a trailer of beta release (thought that would be awesome) but something to show us that your still there or if the game is dead or not

So because there are so many "wheres da update!" comments, I'll post something different.
Does anybody here knows how the medic will "heal" or "revive". Since it's a realistic game where you die from 1-3 shots how can you be healed or revived?

I think it would be most realistic if the medic would only carry back wounded soldiers (soldiers that are effectively just rolling around half dead on the ground), the medic would carry these wounded back to their side, and as a result of this your team wouldn't loss a re-spawn ticket.

That would be cool.
I also think they should make the mg more powerful, not like in RO2
