I'm still really sad this was canceled, and i just wish we had a small playable demo, just to have a feel of what it would've been, or give the source code to a team of modders, or just make it public. It's just so weird to have all this work done, cancel the game and just not give out a free little demo.

TBH I agree. I'd like to see a small release even if it's just of a prototype. Would be nice to see and play.

im too tired to go to the original post, but didnt they say they cancelled it because they had too much on their plate or whatever? wouldnt journeys end we might get a bit?

The main reason was that despite the changes they made, already switching development partners once, the game was not meeting their own standards for the quality they envisioned and didn't feel they would be able to meet those standards in a reasonable time frame.

From the sounds of it, it seemed like Re-Logic felt it would be a disservice to release a game that did not have the proper standard of quality.

I don't know and couldn't say if other aspects of their workload had an impact on it or not. After completing Journey's End, they will start a new project, it's not known whether it will be Terraria related or not or when more info about it will be revealed.

but they already have the work done. I'm not saying "hey, you know that cancelled project? uncancel it you lazy pigs!" I'm just saying "Hey, you know that project that was cancelled after 3 years in development? release the source code or whatever build there is, so it hasnt gone to waste, and we have something else to play while waiting for 1.4"

No, we will not release any unfinished elements or source code from the TOW project.

Again, it was far below our standards... and also again, some of the ideas we had there (many never revealed) may be used later on down the road.

Funny how many times you have to tell people this and they still keep asking, lol.

Though I will also re-iterate a point I made, in that I rather liked the graphics that I saw in those demos, I hope that they would eventually find their way to a Re-Logic game, or heck at the very least, be a part of an official texture pack or something.

That was the #1 thing I was most liking about TOW was the awesome tiles.

While I wanted this game to be released, I understand why they decided to cancel it. Here is an F for the devs who worked on Other World whose work may never be seen.

Is the code public? If not can you make it
No decent company worth their salt is going to release code and assets of an unfinished project, because they would be basically

A). Giving up the rights to it, thus making it impossible to repurpose said code and assets later,
B). Allowing the public to see a product they deemed "inferior" and "not befitting the quality of the company".

Some ideas/concepts/assets that were going to be used in T:OW are likely going to be used in other Re-Logic projects, so while you won't see T:OW as a whole, you will see some stuff that was in it used elsehwere.

Ya I figured. I was just wondering if there was any chance so it could by edited and turned into a mod.
