All is Dark…

Posted by shatteredmoon On November - 5 - 2016

After slightly over a year of up-time, I have decided to retire CUO because of lack of interest. It has been months since anyone has logged in, and even when the game was relatively new the average player connected for only 10 minutes and never returned. Perhaps releasing the game in its Alpha phase was a mistake…I understand that the game was considered unplayable by some because it suffered from a number of glitches, but almost no one reported bugs, suggestions, or feedback and I was often unaware of major problems. I haven’t decided whether I’ll attempt to polish the game and release it in a better shape, or just upload the entire project to a public repository and be done with it. Either way, the server will go dark on December 1st for the foreseeable future. Thanks to those of you who gave the game a try and offered encouragement along the way.

    Please consider donating your work to Github. Perhaps someone will port it to AmigaOS, or a platform more suitable for Ultima games? Thank you for your efforts.

    If this was a web-based game, it would likely gain more players

      This cannot exist as a web-based game because of the dependencies on the installation of the official versions. I could see CUO having a mobile front-end, but the amount of work to convert just the user-interface would be extremely prohibitive as far as I’m concerned.
