Hello everyone,

Unfortunately we have to confirm that the rumors are true and RealU, the developer of Otherland, has laid off most of its staff.

RealU is a subsidiary of German publisher dtp, which by itself is currently in insolvency, and gamigo had and has very limited influence on this decision. We are disappointed by this development and very sorry for the development team.

As for the Otherland game: we are still holding the exclusive publishing rights for Europe and North America and we are currently looking into opportunities to finish the title at another location.

Please understand that for legal reasons we are unable to comment further on this matter.

So it's not looking good.  They are holding the rights, but unable to finish .. perhaps looking to sell it off?

Recognize the voice? Yep sounds like Penny Arcade's Extra Credits.

I wanted to see the dynamic npc in action.
