Default A personal update, and apology

As ...Most of you have noticed, I've been gone for awhile and you all deserve an explanation. Warning: This post contains personal information that has very little to do with Tatsumaki or EoE.

My life has gone to hell over the past year and a half, and while I initially tried to keep Tatsumaki working (And had done fairly successfully thanks to the efforts of Martin and Stephen (DeXtrose))), I was unable to keep it up. The reasons for this are plentiful, complicated, and extremely personal however I will give a brief summary. I am very deeply in debt due to hospital bills which I had earned around June of last year, for several trips to the ER, physical therapy, and so on. I have also been seeing two specialists for other issues, which has not been cheap. During this time I have been unable to find much paying work, which has led me to move back home.

Does this mean Tatsumaki is dead? Not even remotely. I still believe the gaming world needs Tatsumaki, however I have come to the conclusion that an MMO is too big of a game to create right now. DeXtrose is currently working on his own project, which is promising - and I've been working on a much simpler web game, from which the profits will go to refunding all who want refunds for their preorders.

In regards to refunds - if I had the money to do so, I would refund all who asked. However I do not, and the company does not at the moment either. On top of my hospital bills (Which I've paid out of my own pockets), the servers we've owned (Which were initially funded with EoE money, but has come to rest on myself, even today), the licenses we've bought (Mostly from my own pocket) - I just can't afford to refund anyone right now. Pre-ordering was never meant as a sure fire way to access the game, get into beta, or anything along those terms - it was my never my intention to even hint at these facts, and it has always been designed to support development - and only support development. However, even considering this, I will personally be refunding those who desire a refund when I am able.

I have to stress this, I am in debt, and EoE is not currently making any money, I will not set dates for when refunds will be happening because I honestly don't know what the future holds. However please rest assured that DeXtrose, myself, and a few other long time team members plan on keeping Tatsumaki, and Eyes Out Entertainment alive - with other, smaller projects used to fund Tatsumaki and refunds.

Sorry about your troubles!

a while after I joined the forums I was starting to get worried the tatsumaki would become vaporware. with this update I feel some hope. and no matter how small, hope is still hope. (except obama hope)

I will, as I am sure other fans will be, patient. I hope that I will be able to help out eoe in ways such as buying/supporting eoe's other projects.

I also hope the community becomes more active in the near future!

P.S.
Web game? more info please!

sorry to hear about the troubles, but look on the bright side of life- like the song.
And dont worry be happy, things eventually clears up if they are meant to, stay tuned and positive and luck finds you sooner rather than later.


As a Small add to this, i have several web ideas and or ideas which can have serious revenues in it, but i myself lack the programming skills or knowledge to put them out forward without a pilar/ someone who understands how to set a business and or web idea live..
So if anyone have programming skills and know how to set up and sign a NDA for me, i am willing to share my ideas in order for possibilities for a revenue to support both myself and perhaps assist Tatsumaki which we all cherish and love so much in a conceptual view.
= this would equal a partnership should anyone partake in this challenge. Good tidings to all! Oh And Happy New Year! May change find us all.

hope all gets better for you...disapointing about the game to be here almost 4 years and hear this..but its very understandable, and I'll try my best to check every once in awhile to see how or if any side projects come about

I'm sure you have tried this but try selling the Idea or getting a big company sponser. Would really like to see this all work out. Good luck and I won't be asking for a refund. Just want the game in the future
