Anyone? I can't even find a trace of it anymore.
Never got off the ground but several ...in fact almost all of the features of this game were promised to come in The Paradise Project.
First heard about it years ago. Doing this from memory so forgive me if it isn't 100% accurate for details.
Premiss was that a self serving scientist had tricked Earth into sending a colony ship filled with specially selected and trained children (who had literally been purchased from their parents) who would grow up on the voyage to a new planet maintaining the ship.
His real intention was that the ship would detour or crash on some sort of anomoly that he had discovered.
The game opens as the survivors of the crash begin to emerge and explore their new home using only the things they could scavenge from the crash and create from newly discovered resources (plants, animals etc.)
The devs promised that the first person to discover or create something could name it and that would become part of the word database.
Except for the setting, the two games sound very similar.
I am excited because masic and I are mmo gamers from way back and have often hoped that an open, persistant world...that would grow and change depending on the actions of the players would some day become a reality.
