So, "Towns" is Going With a New Dev
« on: February 24, 2014, 03:28:30 PM »
Two weeks ago, the chief developer of Towns, Xavi, posted an update telling the community that he was "burnt out" on developing the game and would discontinue it. A while later, there was a subsequent post about a new developer taking over and beginning March 1st.

Anyone excited to see where this leads?

I could make a prediction, but then maybe people would shout at me for being a pessimistic bunghole. Or a Gnomoria centered fanboy. Both wouldnt be totally off, mind you.

But frankly, I wont expect much. Should it ever become what I thought it would become, I'd be happy.

I am glad that the game isn't just being abandoned, but I have very low expectations.

It's like Towns has a stigma now. Hopefully the new guy can turn it around.
