Is Voxelands dead?

by Danfun64 » Mon Jul 09, 2018 21:49

As of this writing, there hasn't been a new Win32 release in about a year, there hasn't been any new activity in the Voxelands Gitlab in three months, and the Voxelands website is down. Is the Voxelands project dead?

Yes, obviously it's dead. I've been waiting for the win build too checking the forum from time to time. Probably some serious technical issues caused the project to be abandoned which is understandable given there was apparently only single active developer left.

The wiki, webpage, github seems to be offline?
What did darkrose as admin and developer do?
Lets renew all and restart the project, this should be done, because the game is great and should not be dead?!!

It was pretty much dead from the beginning on because it always used an outdated Minetest version to build on and that was never changed. It had some nice ideas but the effort should have been put in a game for Minetest, and not in a fork that combines the Minetest engine and a Minetest game into one thing.

... as a Minetest game. Yes. That would be awesome. Current Minetest engine features with Voxelands gameplay and I'm all in!

Good idea.
