Towns Dev Leaving; Towns 2 Possible

The Towns forums have another situation where Early Access has not gone well, as developer Florian "Moebius" Frankenberger announces he's leaving the project, even though many of the issues that have plagued the city builder since its 2012 Early Access launch remain unaddressed (thanks Strategy Informer). He explains that he was working for a percentage of the game's proceeds, so as sales have dwindled, so has his salary, leaving him unable to continue. He offers a ray of light for fans, explaining that a sequel is possible, and making it sound like there would be some sort of discount for Towns backers if that project comes to be. He explains the advantages they would enjoy from a fresh start:

A new game will give us the following advantages:

  1. we can implement all the cool things that are not possible at the moment due to how the core mechanics works in Towns 1
  2. we can also rise attention as this is a completely new game and a successor for once great runnning game
  3. this will also make it possible to have a financially sound basis for a long development of Towns2

I want to end this post by thanking you for reading this and for all your support in these two months. Again I'm sorry
that we had to pull the plug right here, but I sincerely hope you can understand why we had to make that decision right
