We are pleased to announce great news for our ambitious project: The development of the games first chapter is reaching its end; the remaining content (models, textures, etc) has been finished, combat system fully functional with only cut scene scripting and some coding to be left. To shorten the time till release, we prepared 4 new insights into the game, we hope you enjoy:
Inspired by SNES classics, Team Monkey develops this fantasy adventure/RPG for PC. Return to Mana - Legacy of the eight elements, brings an innovative fresh setting to the platform and a full 3 player cooperative playing experience. Fight together with 2 friends to prevent the Empire from rising again and restore peace to the world of Mana.
Also, we are considering the possibility of releasing a standalone built, but no decision has been made. Although SOURCE mods are now basically "free to play" (by downloading the SDK and TF2), a standalone version would be much nicer. Also we currently face the situation that less than 5% of our bare server costs could have been gained by donations; although this is a non commercial title, but to get back some of our minimum costs would be quite appreciated by us.
