Things have been radio silent regarding the development of MMOARPG Mad World, with the most recent news being that Netmarble will be publishing it. But what about the game devs? Where are they? That’s what one player asked and it got a response about a week-and-a-half later.
A forum post simply asks where developer responses to recent forum posts are on October 5th. On the 16th, a developer who goes by the name of Jandi_Mike had this to say in response:
“Hi, there. We are at pause with social media activities including the forum because we recently started working with Netmarble who will be the global publisher for Mad World. Once things get sorted, we will return to social media. On top of that, we will probably open a new forum in the future, run by Netmarble, so this forum will be used less and less. Hope you understand.”
This has been the only response to a number of asks from fans about where things stand with the game. Mad World’s social media has otherwise gone silent and there doesn’t appear to be any additional developer responses. Delays are not exactly new to Mad World: It announced a Steam launch that it missed, then announced that an alpha would happen as well as considered crowdfunding to fund some “improvements.”
Strangely enough, we’re running into a random automatic script that is redirecting links from the forum post or the forum itself to the game’s home page after a few seconds, so it can be hard to get to the forum post you want to see. We’ve included an image of the post below just in case the forum weirdness continues.
