Greed Monger’s development comes to the ‘end of the road’

Not that you’ve been holding onto incredible hope that Greed Monger would somehow see a revival after an extremely troubled development cycle, but you should probably know that the game is now officially cancelled.

“After careful consideration [given the] GM’s track record and the number of people we still have in the community we have decided it’s best to put Greed Monger to rest for good,” Lead Developer James Proctor posted today. “There is no way that Greed Monger could support itself with as small of a user base as we would have. It’s been fun working with you guys all these years and I hope you guys find homes in future MMOs.”

This is, of course, not the first time that Greed Monger has called it quits; the fantasy game has given up several times before. The crowdfunded MMO did announce a return of sorts back in January, but today’s announcement under the title of “The final end of the road for Greed Monger” makes us think that this will be the last time we’ll ever hear of this game.

It would have been more meta if they just took the money and ran.

BenjaminMichealNorthrup Yeah, I actually stopped using mmorpg.com entirely because of how those idiots handled that guy. Should have been as simple as they permanently banned that worthless piece of human filth and moved on. Instead they dropped their pants for him the second he mentioned “lawsuit”. That is now the worst places on the web for mmo news and discussions.

spider3 I’m grateful for people like you Spider3. I’ve been programming network technology for companies for nearly 20 years, and 7 years ago I decided to start developing my own MMORPG. I’ve worked on Legends of Etherell for nearly 7 years independently as of this year, and it’s been great having the support of our small community; many of which message us often asking, “Is the project dead?” Just seeing those inquiries means the world to us, as it shows these few people still care enough to check up on us. It’s amazing to see supporter like you, and after talking with a few friends of mine that invested in both Embers of Caerus and Greedmonger, we decided that once our public pre-alpha release is out, we’ll extend our hand to their backers and honor their investments in our game.
I’ve had the fortune of seeing every game I’ve backed come to fruition, though sadly, they are all games developed by well-known and well-established organizations; there are often very low-risk projects. It always frustrates me to see backers suffer loss like this, regardless of the known risk that is associated with backing projects. I wish you luck with your future MMO ventures.

Thanks. I saw a few episodes of the show, and recognized its quality, but the “comedy of the uncomfortable” isn’t my favorite type. Not surprisingly, it makes me uncomfortable. :-D

I thought it had already been cancelled.  Were they waiting on the coroner’s report?
