Well, the common answer one would have around here when we had a CM was:
The team is working on other projects at this time, however, this is just a temporary issue and will most likely change in the future.
While I don't have any information on when the production process will resume, I would like to assure you that the game will not shut down anytime soon either."
So, the game is not 'dead' at all, but is not pretty 'alive' either.
That's why I say this game is something like a 'zombie'.
So, tbh, our situation here is exactly like this:
"All we can do is pray
In the darkness we hide and we wait for the light
And we pray
Oh we pray
Let us pray"
- Pray, Gamma Ray
(hey, this one is for u mate! hahaha)
