Rapid Reality has announced via an open letter to the MMORPG.com community that they are shelving their MMO title, The Chronicle.
When Rapid Reality opened its doors last year, the idea was to rapidly bring games to reality. As we moved into production on The Chronicle, however, our vision for what the game could be began to outstrip the technical capabilities of our original platform. We faced a tough choice: lower the bar or pursue our vision. We chose the latter. To build the game you want to play and we want to build, we needed to control our own technology. We thus acquired the Aura 3-D platform in December 2005. Our programmers spent the next six months upgrading the graphics, re-architecting the server layer, and expanding the engine's capabilities.
