Twilight War: Resurrected

Posted Feb 16, 2006 by Jon Wood

Twilight War: Resurrected

It seems now that a game which shut its doors in the new year, has been given a second chance at life. Twilight War, a game from Smiling Gator announced in January that it was closing its doors due to lack of funding, but it seems as though those problems might be over:

 

A little over a month ago, Smiling Gator announced that we had run out of funds and were subsequently shutting down operations and halting development on our MMO-FPS project, Twilight War: After the Fall. Like the untimely deaths of Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobaine, the announcement generated a spike of interest.

Smiling Gator has concluded an agreement to license the Twilight War concept and sub-license Valve's Source engine to a new partner company, General Computers, to fund and continue development

At first, we thought it was primarily a case of "rubbernecking"; everyone is fascinated by a good train wreck. However, it soon became clear that lots of people genuinely thought Twilight War was a great concept and wanted to find a way to keep it alive. There was an outpouring of support from our loyal community, and even new business inquiries, almost as much as when things were alive and well.

The net result is that, After the Fall of Twilight War, there is now a plan for its resurrection. We are very pleased to announce that Smiling Gator has concluded an agreement to license the Twilight War concept and sub-license Valve's Source engine to a new partner company, General Computers, to fund and continue development on our behalf.

General Computers is an independent information technology vendor with offices in Long Island, NY and Beijing, China. It provides high quality IT solutions to worldwide customers. Founded in March 2001 to build customized IT products, it is rapidly growing and expanding into new areas. The agreement with Smiling Gator marks the company's entry into the gaming world.

We will continue keep followers of Twilight War informed of progress through our game site (www.twilightwar.com) but, for now, our primary forums will remain closed. Discussions and community activities are being hosted by our UK fansite, Twilight War HQ (www.twilightwarhq.com).
