I just really don't know what to say. Probably still in shock a bit, though I can't say I am suprised. The gaming world is hard and MOUL was not able to meet the fan base that was wanted. That along with the costs of developing and running the game and I am sure the current economic climate didn't help matters. (Also MOUL not being a hack/slash game - isn't it wierd that non-violent games just aren't as popular?)

As Renee said it was a blast while it lasted (though it's not gone quite yet - they have given it 60 days before shutdown)

Greydragon did say in Uru Obession hood that they were still talking with GameTap but was not able to tell us if there would be the possibility of Shards like before. If they are unable to even provide that, I am going to miss the many wonderful friends I have made in the Cavern and for that alone, I am devestated.

I'm devastated too, and I was never able to get UL running!! But I kept hoping that since I had no problem with UU, something would change. Guess I'll be one of the apparently many people who are dropping their GameTap subscriptions, because UL was the only reason they joined.

What I'm wondering now is whether there is any chance someone will start up UU again--or was that just a desperation measure to try and get someone to give UL another chance? And even more important, I wonder if there is any chance that Cyan could release the new material from this past year in CD form, as they did with POTS--I would definitely be a customer for that!!

Someone over at GT discussion forum made the comment that the original version of UL was also dropped on February 4--what a disaster day for Uru fans...cry

I only played MOUL a couple of times when they offered a free trial (beta) to us Europeans, but never suscribed because I never encountered any people to do the group quests with. Since MOUL was the only game offered to Europeans through GameTap, and we had no access to any of the other games, the suscription fee just didn't feel worth it to me.

I sometimes read the comments in the MOUL thread here and it did sound like you were having a great time. I kept looking forward to the day they would offer more games to make the suscription fee better value for money (e.g. Sam and Max) so I could join in and try again. Sadly, this day will now never come.

I'd like that too. I think they'd have to alter some of the puzzles so they could be solved by a single player, but hopefully doing that wouldn't be too involved.

I've been too busy to play any game regularly for over a year and a half so I never signed up for Gametap. Since I don't expect to have enough free time to play before the summer, it looks like I'll never be able to play it unless it comes out on CD (or DVD).

I wonder if the puzzles that could only be solved by multiplayers had anything to do with not getting sufficient numbers of players to keep it going.

Soot and I had an advantage as we sit side by side, but I know from experience that those puzzles could be very frustrating.

It was a sad day when I found out that MOUL would not be continued after april hopefully they will give us back UU so we can still run in the cavern with our friends.

I am so sad but not surprised. The choir has started talking about getting ready for our next concert and now I have no idea if that is going to go anywhere or not. I hope so and we can at least broadcast it somewhere.

I'm keeping my subscription until the 60 days are up. There are plans afoot to make the St. Patrick's Day celebration our last big hurrah and I don't want to miss that.

Man, this just stinks. cry

PolloDiablo...i was not a really 'smart' player but i would have done quests w/you!! And i am sure others in the gameboomers would have too!! If we had known your screen name in the game! I am sad no more MOUL, but i am not going to get the 'add on' if they do it for single player (like POTS) because to me there really wasn't anything outstanding about Minkata, or the Pods or Jalek..the 2 extra Eders were interesting because of the group effort but just not enough to keep me interested. I think is a shame the game is apparently 'folding'. I just would really, really, like to know the real reason!

What is UU? I keep hearing about that on the various forums.

Hey y'all,

I was wondering how the Boomers were feeling about this.

Celtic Lark, UU stands for Until Uru. After Prologue shut down Cyan came up with a way for us to continue to play. UU was the code given out to a few people who were willing to run their own servers. These were called shards. Cyan retained control. A person bought a Kagi key to get authorized to join. You could play on any shard. Many of us played on all the shards. There was no new content, but we made up our own parties and quests, etc.

It was a lot of fun back then.

Many of us knew it was just a chance that this game might make it on GameTap. After all, we are a specialized group. Not like the mainstream gamers. But it has been fun!
