    It's the last video. I said Dev Diary because that is the format for most of the content on the front page. Sorry for the confusion.

    Oh. Sorry, I got confused. Yeah, that sounds rather strange. This is the first time I've seen the devs and publisher publicly contradicting each other in such a way.

    Just have to say I feel the pain of the developers. I am not impressed with the professionalism of Paradox in handling this case. Making public posting about possible cancellation before at least telling the developers is really not the way to handle things.

    Barring something extraordinary event, I strongly suspect this game will be canceled since Paradox has already spread bad rumors about it, which will negatively impact it's box office reception. Which is a shame, since this game was the only upcoming Paradox published game I was excited about, the only game that dared to be innovative. Probably the developers aimed too high, and failed to simplify things when it was clear that the deadlines were pressing, but at the same time this doctrine of "no compromise" would have yielded a better game in the end and better sales for Paradox had they chosen to release it.

    I hope the developers will continue to make games after this, they've got a lots of potential! And as well I hope Paradox will reconsider and give this game the release it deserves...

    Don't give up now, Killerrabbit. There's always the possibility of compromise.

    On one hand I appreciate the openness, on the other it's clearly been too much effort into MM to give up now.

    I'll repeat what others have said, and propose a "pre-order, be part of the beta" system. It has worked for other developpers.

    Just view the video and look at Ubik.

    Of course, the good news is that we donít live in a perfect world, we are humans and our stories more often than not are the roll call of mistakes we committed. In real life, he who commits fewer mistakes wins.

    With my fair share of mistakes, let me assure you I won already at all levels. This was the best time of my life and I owe it to all of you!

    So... enjoy the final developer interview and of course, keep a foul tomato or a rotten egg at the ready to throw at the face of yours truly!
    Also PI took over the Beta now, throwing out the UV-people as Mods here...
    So no cancelling but takeover from PI side now.(My guessing)
    Maybe PI could also get the free devs that worked so hard too on this project and will finish it just without UV.
    At least that is what it looks like to me. But because of all the "trouble" it will not called MMtG maybe anymore.
    From the interviews and all the comments it looks like that UV has already focus on their next(own) game. Also they may have no contract responsibilities to develop MMtG any further if they say it is all ok. So if P says it is not all ok then you have the basics for a std argument..
    If they have that differences or not, A small studio like UV will likely have not the manpower to do 2 such projects at the same time, so they will have the need to do on at the time too.
    And Ubik already said that his programmer will work from this time on exclusively on the new project..
    And as P has already, I guess, paid them one year longer as all thought of, they would maybe not pay UV any longer anyway..

    A pretty "normal" situation that could happen in big projects..
    Who is to "blame"? As most times, all parts of that story have their "reasons"..

    From the outside with litlle Infos, we can just guess.
    From my point of view, we'll see a game with that nice features, developed by Fans, polished by PI.

    Cheers!

    It's been a while since we heard something from k_merse or Zolotaya (not to mention ubik)... Have they been slapped on the fingers for their (mis)communication?

    As long as we get a Magna Mundi game, and as long as the Devs that still desire to do so are allowed to continue working on it, I am perfectly fine with Paradox taking over the development from UV.

    Hi,

    I'm posting just to make sure you are in the loop; our silence is an effect of the fact that there are no news. We are busy looking at the build, talking to the devs and weighing the pros and cons of different options.

    I do understand that the behind-the-scenes-process of carefully looking at the options tests your patience, but I'm afraid there is no way to avoid it at present. We will not rush it, for the sake of all involved.

    Yes, this looks increasingly likely. I'm not sure if it's a good thing or bad thing though.
    "The tension between promoting democracy and promoting human rights, when newly enfranchised peoples turn out not to subscribe to the ideals of the Enlightenment, is the dirty secret of the human rights movement. As the expanding franchise continues to expose the fissure between the two ideals, human rights advocates are finally going to have to choose between them."

    I would assume it would take a lot of time for an other team to learn the mechanics and change and fix them... Perhaps a year

    I hope that among those different options there is still one in which UV stays at the game, perhaps with some help

    This starts feeling like an important football game that has gone to penalties, its the third or fourth round and its 3-3. Its like when one wants it to be over, one way or another. I hope a decision comes soon.
