Free-to-play 2-D MMORPG Naïca is wrapping up development, just four months after it went into open beta. Massively Overpowered pulled the news from the game's official Discord, where (former) developer ZeddOTak informed fans that the game "failed for multiple reasons, and the project is not sustainable for the company in its current form."

Naïca will still be playable, but no additional development work will be done. In addition, the developer will be pared down to just two employees, who will be "actively working on a new exciting projet [sic] related to Naïca, which will be available later on." ZeddOTak was not one of the employees who will be retained to work on the proje[c]t.

The sudden announcement has irked several of the game's fans, who were paying into it until the announcement and whose money will now apparently go toward a different endeavor. Money is obviously tight, but if the developers of that game don't make some effort to honor those who played and paid for their previous game, I think they'll have a hard time finding backers of the new title.
