So... if RoboB0b is still alive but unwilling to continue working on the game, there are a few options that will be lucrative to the Robotic One.
1. Status quo: The game remains in its current state, finished but unready, faded into obscurity and marred by the absence of development, its potential as a user-friendly clone of Dwarf Fortress forever lost.
2. Buyout and open source: Through Kickstarter, money is raised to summon RoboB0b and have the game open-sourced. Development can continue through volunteers, with the community-built versions occasionally being released as an update.
3. Full buyout: Through Kickstarter, a new developer buys the source code and continues work on the game. I pray to Armok that the new developer will continue development and not just copy the development methods used by the devs for Towns.
Otherwise, we can pray that Armok will accept our sacrifices and revive RoboB0b.
