Yes, it’s true. This project should and will go on. While there was a lot of confusion and mis-communication, things should and can continue a-fresh.
MagicMyshu: I totally leave it to you to decide whether or not you want another go at this. You put in an incredible amount of time already, and we’re over the hump on a lot of issues. If you’re still mad at certain people, leave it and continue. If you would rather let it go, so be it. It’s up to you. I kept up communication with you and/or my leaders to the best of my ability (test me here, guys) because I did not want this to fail. Can we still proceed? You were an incredible organizer, even with the flu!
Chaser: While you have not communicated with me or anyone very well, you have still spent time on the project (mouse look) and was invaluable to the initial programming. If you do not want to continue that is up to you. I’ll just say that if you want to start your own community project, keep in better communication!! I’ve enjoyed working with you and would be sorry to see go. I leave that decision to you…
As a side note, if you don’t want to continue, would you at least be up for checking the optimization of the game when it’s nearing completion? You seem to have knowledge in that area.
Siegel: You didn’t have much choice leaving, so I find no fault in you. You communicated well (and promptly) with your team and I also enjoyed working with you. If you really do want to continue (as you specified in Chaser’s thread), please verify your intentions to all.
Ven0mSevenX: I think you should be cut some slack (MM…) as you have done the most physical work for this game. I would assume the reason you slowed on the work was because of the mis-communication problem. Again, I find no fault in you. I have been extremely impressed with your creativity and great level design. I agree with you about having put too much time into this project to let it die. Keep it up, and I look forward to your up-date.
Animatinator: I don’t need to say anything about your commitment to the project. Look at slipside; look at our sound/music department. You stick with something. Your willingness to help out is superb. I love your music more than anything else you’ve done. Good work!
Everyone else who was involved: Please state your position; we need to know how many are still willing to work…for real. If you don’t want to help, that’s fine, just make that clear to all. This is a community project, we need everyone who is willing.
So the point of this is to start again. We don’t need any hard feelings; 95% of the time it’s just mis-communication, not intentional wrong-doing. If we pull together, this project can be accomplished…much of it already has.
SO…EVERYONE PLEASE RESPOND!!
Let’s gather our bearings and do this thing!! I can’t run the whole project; I’m too busy and not always the best leader. I want to work on the gritty stuff…down to earth one might say. So please step up and take action.
Alright? My e-mail is [email protected]. If you wish, this is a much faster means of communication. For now, though, just reply on this thread. I wait for your reply…
