Mutants Rising is dead, Fan Made Fallout lives [ Mod -> Update ]

The Fallout mod that everybody thought sucked anyway has now finally died. Clearly upset by the superiority of Fan Made Fallout, several of the MR team members have jumped their sinking, rat-infested ship and joined with the FMF Project. Here's what Wild_Querty had to say about MR's long-expected demise:

Well since no progress has been made in a long time and no one is posting on the nwsgames.net forums and the team leader disappeared MR is basically dead, well actually everyone who is left agrees that’s it dead, so you could say that it's officially dead.

SNorth did write up a rather nice news announcement that MR is dead, but we couldn’t even agree on what to say in that, so here's my take on it.

Anyway, thanks to all the members of MR who contributed over the last few years (you know who you are!). Even though we didn’t finish the mod (we had a buggy demo completed) we had a bloody good time of it, we made a lot of good friends and learnt a lot about game development, art, scripting, writing, other peoples countries etc... Though it is disappointing we never completed MR it was worth all the hard-yaka just for the good mates we made.

In short, we were far to ambitious and the scripting hamstrung us.

Thanks also to NMA for hosting us in the early days (leaving NMA was probably the beginning of the end for MR as it cut us off from the FO community)

Thanks to the developers out there who made the software tools to let us give modding FO2 a crack (Team-X springs to mind, those guys are bloody legends!).

A lot of the team is currently hanging out http://www.hairy-barbarian.com/forum if you want to stop by and spam us (or say hi). A lot of the boys are still very passionate about game dev, and have a few separate projects on the cooker.

Finally to anyone else out there thinking of getting into the modding scene, go for it! It's great fun and you dont need to be a total computer geck (err geek).

Yes. Fan Made Fallout still have nothing new to show though but there are rumours on the internets found through The Google that they might have something soon... er or later.
