Been following MV for awhile, was excited for Firefly, but things happen.
Then, City of Heroes announced its closure. A bunch of us CoH fans were upset, and are trying to stop the closing down of the game. But we are also working on a backup plan, a Plan Z as it were. We began testing a bunch of MMO engines and servers. And I'd remembered that Multiverse was open sourced, so it wound up on the pile. We've been testing them, and despite some strong showings of Torque and Unreal, in the end, Multiverse won out.
So now, time to figure out the nuts and bolts. Trying to keep the flavor of the old game, but not a direct copy.
