ALPHAFUNDING +FAILED+ | TEAM GOT DISPERSED In order to continue development, we have to put a new team together, and fund the game through alternative source of funding. That will take some time. This project has not been abandoned. Unless information comes from the official source, please disregard online rumors. Indie game dev is a very tough business and the year 2013 is even tougher due to many new indie studios funded by former AAA developers. Competition for human resources and funding is fierce. People who believed it the game and ordered alpha - huge thank you, you will never be forgotten and when the game is resurrected, we will make it up to you, somehow. Thank you for understanding.

Seeing no feedback for the new features we implemented I figured Desura client doesn't ping owners of the game that there was an update. Therefore I made a screencast about new features including spellcrafting and new menu. We hope you will appreciate these features and will make some cool let's play style videos of you and your buddies chopping up skelies together online and growing your magical powers :)

"A first-person action-RPG dungeon crawler."

And it doesn't have enough backing for a programmer to stay interested.

This is a type of RPG game that is sorely under-represented nowadays, and ToM is the closest I've seen to a modern-day Ultima Underworld. WHY IS THERE NOT MORE INTEREST IN THIS!?

I hope this project continues eventually, I am desperate to see a game like this released in full. Delver is excellent, but it isn't enough.

You should launch a Kickstarter campaign to recruit people to help you finish the game.

Game looks amazing. Lots of mumbling and not enough doing in the video I checked. Has my interest. But if it's another unfinished work that will never get completed, I am wasting my time keeping tabs on it.

No content means not much to show. Keep your eye on it, eventually it will get back to life and will be released.

So it's going down the drain ? Sadly, this happens when funding isn't offered :( to not so well known possible gems.

It's not down the drain per se. But without a programmer who is on the same page with me, there is no way to finish the game. Press not picking it up played a huge role in demise too.
That being said, I have to redesign the game, find right person for programming (or move current team that works on another game to ToM when another game is finished), and make it happen.

$20 is much for a game without a demo. I love the idea of a new first person dungeon crawler, but without a demo to let me get a feel for the game, I'm tempted to just avoid this game. Are you planning to offer a small demo for those of us who would like to playtest your game?

Oh yeah on a side note: I understand not havign to do a day job means more time that COULD be spent on making the game, but does not mean in any way that it WOULD. Money and endless free time shouldn't be a motivator to making something you enjoy.
