And now the servers are dying. Chat died. They also said we should prepare to lose our cards.

RIP.

Still wondering who's payin' rent for the forums server.

I've heard the servers, well server is still up for infinity wars or something. i've heard they still generate some money from it, but personally think it's total bs. I spoke with elphie before about buying the game and that's what he told me. that they still generate 50k on the game and they'd only sell it for 1mil. otherwise they'd be more interested in licensing it out.

I remember when there were still some optimistic sentiments in the community, when that oil snake salesman pr manager, or whatever his job, was streaming with his infuriating fake cheer, meanwhile everything was falling apart.

On the bright side, at least most of us wised up from the experience.

P.S NovaBlue is still fat.

Thank You! :) We'll see where this idea goes for now it's just a dream.

Does anyone know if the development team has changed or is it still the same guys?
Pawns are new, king remained the same - Elphie Coyle.
Only 3 guys work on it, primal problem with IW - it was underinvested, and ultimately hesistation of spedning more resources on it killed this game.
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Actually, there's 5 coders on this one, in particular a few really crazy good ones from what I hear.
Yeah, Coyle is still in charge but he's (pretty understandably) determined to make sure that IH doesnt become the same management dumpster fire that IW turned into.

Hey guys, my name's Aki
I should preface this with saying, I am not a representative/employee of Lightmare, I am simply an active member of the community and (I believe) the only person who streams the game on anything near a regular basis.

Over the past year I've gotten fairly close with a few current Lightmare employees, and been given the opportunity to have a lot of questions answered in regards to the state of IW and LM as a whole.

To my understanding, the causes of the current state of IW can first be traced back all the way to development. Its clear that a lot of love and passion went into the game, which is why its lasted so long, however the underlying code was apparently poorly put together, creating many of the glitches and bugs that we still deal with to this day and no way to get rid of them without rehauling the entire client from the ground up.I wasnt present for this, nor for the first few years of IW's history, only joining the community around a year or so before Rebellion dropped so Im unable to comment on the management that went on during that time from a personal perspective, but from what many people say, it was a bit of a mess.

At a certain point, it became LM could no longer support IW and the game was sold to Yodo1 while LM was allowed to keep the rights to the assets from the game. Yodo, however, has not seemed to take any care of IW, there only real contribution so far being the fact they havent shut off the servers yet. Although not given the best base to work off of, the current stagnant nature of the development of further content for IW is due to Yodos unwillingness to do anything with it as its unrealistic to put any further effort into development as the effort would not realistically see a payoff considering IW's current profit margin.

At this current point in time, LM has moved onto their new project called Infinity Heroes.
Keeping with a lot of core themes from IW, IH is being built from the ground up with the knowledge gained from IWs development so that it wont become a coders nightmare down the track. LM community reprasentative JasonOCE has said that depending on the profits made from IH, new projects similar to IW MAY (big emphasis on the MAY) be pursued in the distant future.

For now, I believe we should keep an eye on the development of IH while we continue to enjoy this Schrodingers Cat of a game that is both alive and dead depending on the perspective of ones observations.
