Well, drat. I guess I'm never gonna get those additional Yerfbucks for goodie icons that are used in the game then :P Meh. I figure some stuff from HPG can be recycled, though, like some internet stuff, so it probably wasn't all for nothing.

EDIT: Now I have to update the Wiki article with that, though... meh, maybe later.

Default HappyPonyGate is canceled... :(

I wasn't even really paying much attention to the game, but I was looking forward to it. I see the reasons Jamul canceled it, and I respect them.

I don't really know what to think.
To be honest, Jamul has had an awful lot of smaller projects which he has started, but not finished, over the last few years, so I was surprised that he commited himself to such a large project as HPG in the first place!
I feel it's important that not only do we have fun playing games that Hamumu produces, but also that Jamul has fun making them. If he wasn't enjoying making HPG, then he did the right thing by cancelling it.

I am sad also, but I'm sure jamul will recycle what he has. Jamul: you should recycle stuff from games you know you won't get back to. it would be awesome.

I've commented on the journal entry.

Like death said, perhaps it's possible to salvage some portions of what's done for HPG and put it into, say, a freebie, or even a new game. You did that with Sol Hunt, didn't you, Jamul? The game that resulted, Retrovirus, is arguably the coolest freebie available in terms of eye-candy.

Frankly, I think it's a good thing it's cancelled. Games like Costume Party looks like a much better idea because he made money off of Costume Party, it only took him a month, I'm guessing he had fun with it and we have fun playing it! It's a win win game, so why not make more?

What Jamul did succeed with Costume Party, though, is to make an online game, so that's quite good already, considering that HPG was also supposed to be an online game.
