Tad Williams' Message Board

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.'
-    Kurt Vonnegut, 1922-2007

Welcome to the message board for tadwilliams.com. All comments are welcome, whether kudos or brickbats. However, please bear in mind that Tad would like this to be a friendly, civil message board, at least in the relations between users. We reserve the right to remove postings, or even ban postings, from anyone who crosses the boundary of reasonable taste. Basically, you can argue vigorously with someone, but watch your language, okay? We have a lot of young readers as well as grown-ups, so please show them some respect.

But the main requirement here is: have fun.

Whats Happening???

Does anyone know what is going on with the Otherland MMO?

Was said it would be released in 2012, two years later and still nothing happening?

Has the project been dumped?

Gamingo are looking like real scan masters for dupping us for soooooooooooooooooo long!!

Re: Whats Happening???

Nothing definite is known right now, other than that they are looking for a new studio to finish development of the game. It is on hiatus, but not dumped.

Really hope it gets done.

Gamingo should atleast update their page to tell us what is happening.

Bethesda should take over in my opinion, ESO is almost up and running then they can move over to Otherland lol

Re: Whats Happening???

It'd be nice to see this released. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed.

MMORPGs are old hat, anyway.  The future ... is iPhone apps.

There should be an MS&T iPhone-enabled RPG done up in retro 16-bit graphics is what I'm saying.

Don't tempt me, Rook. I'm already way behind with the OA game...
