Morder XP has been in development for a long time. But do you want to see development continue? I'm not affiliated with any of the development team but I've been waiting for years and can't allow such a highly anticipated release to be forgotten.

I was part of a small development team for a different project and often problems arrised and we didn't get on and proper process disappeared. Our product did disappear. Also giving up your time is not easy if there's no immediate reward for your effort.

Perhaps a more public approach with a kick-starter campaign or just knowing there are many waiting for a release can help.

If the project does fade then this whole affair is really a testament to David Allen and whoever created Avatar before that, that the game still has purchase in peoples lives.

However, if Morder XP were released next week the whole of dejenol.com would celebrate and would probably happily make a small donation, or would they?

I've setup this pole out of my own interest to see if how much support for Morder XP there is and explore what others are thinking.

I'd also be OK If development stopped then this could be a memorial of an almost made re make.

Best wishes to developers and other interested parties.

I would still like to see this game, just touched base again with Mordor, couldn't find it anywhere and playing Mordor 2. Seems a shame not to finish it after all the effort

Good to see, that there is a forum waiting for a game like Mordor(XP).

The sad thing is, that only 13% want to spent time and/or money (kickstarter). Why is that? The poeple playing mordor when it came out are between 40-50 now, having a job and hopefully can spend 20$ or for a kickstarter campaign. A shame.

It is sad. I think we may be a bit late to the party with this though. I think if I'd suggested this a few years ago when the forum was in full swing it may have gone down well. On the age front you're quite right although I'm only 25 as I started playing at 6.

For those who don't know, MXP went into a standstill years ago. The project became overambitious and our efforts came up short. The latest build of the game that I remember had some bugs but was pretty playable. It has 20+ dungeon floors, new items and new monsters (many of which were created but just not incorporated into the game yet).

I would more than welcome someone to contribute to the project. The pieces are there. Someone just needs to put them together.

Who are the main programmers who've contributed and where are they now?

You know if someone would release the unfinished product as a beta, bugs and all, maybe it would actually motivate somebody to help finish it. At the very least the rest of us could appreciate whatever it was that the developers did. Instead everyone seems to be content with just letting this be vaporware with literally no one ever seeing anything at all. You know you're not going to finish it the way you're going now, so what harm could there possibly be in releasing a game that's gone several years without any movement?

I think I saw somewhere that they aren't allowed to release the partial finished product based on their agreement on the LP.

Call it a finished game, but open source it to the community for "mod support". Problem solved.
It's unfortunate to see a full year go between posts

Hey everyone !
2017 and still hoping ^^
Is there anyone still working on the project ?
I sent a PM to Braindead (in Nov 2016) to be part of it but I don't know if he saw it.

Do someone have a precise idea of what is done and what has to be done ?

Cya

You can't throw money at game development and expect it to work.
There's a lot of failed Kickstarter projects that did a cut & run approach as soon as they saw the dollars roll in. If you want a good game, you need people with passion and commitment. A lot of the team here did it only as a hobby, anyways.

Also Mordor released in 1993? I found it in 2003 when I was 10, and I'm 27 now. You're off by a few decades there.

I think these devs lost the data of this game or never made one just promises and photoshopped screens . This project was made way before opensource and android apps was mainstream kingsway os would be the alternative

Ya, I've lost all hope that MXP will ever become reality, which is why I started my own version of MXP. It is going to be open source and free as well, so shouldn't ever go the vaporware route. Anyone wanting to support me is welcome but I'd still write it anyway, which is what you need for something that's going to be free to the public. I've only been working on it for like a month so far so it still has a little ways to go, but it shouldn't be years in the making.

So, don't give up hope, but rather shift your hope!
