| ||Dear players, |
It pains us greatly to make this announcement, but it is one we have to make nonetheless.
Over the past years we have noticed a significant decrease in sales our games.
To a point where the last 2 major Minebuilder updates has neglegible impact upon the games' wellfare.
Now, this wouldn't have to be an issue. But next to that morale within our company has dropped as well.
Instead, even during work time we started focusing on higher-priority stuff such as our own education.
Because of this, a little while ago we opted to cease our working nights. Essentially ceasing all development.
Now, what does this mean for you;
- There will be no more announced updates for our games. (We may* release bugfixes for example if our free time allows it).
- The SW website and multiplayer services will remain online for now.
- In the event that we ever decide to shut down these online services, we'll make sure to publish a version of our games that function properly without it.
* = No promises
It has been a long trip, we've all had fun making and playing these games, but all things must come to an end.
We'd like to thank all players, this community, our moderators and everyone else for their continuous support.
Thank you all!
- The Space Walrus Team
Bram, Alex, Dick & Rens

| ||really , I believe many lovers minebuilder game will enjoy a continuation like me for me block a continuation as this would be a lack of respect for the players|

How would it be a lack of respect? We're keeping the game alive, and we're doing our best to keep it running even if this website goes down.
You paid for the game, not for the updates, every update you've gotten so far is free content, a gift.
I'm sure they'll love a continuation, but players can also show respect for the developers' lives. We need to live on. And somebody's gotta pay our daily bread.

| ||I'm kinda said about this, yet I'm happy for you guys. But I've been reflecting on this, and I'm being completely honest; I'm planning on taking computer software programming classes in highschool because of this game. Because of you all. All I can say is thank you. This game was really worth the two dollars I spent on it. |
I think it was two dollars, I'm not sure. It's been a while.

| ||Hey Space Walrus Team, |
I would like to say something to your decision too. First of all I would like to say that I really respect your decision.
In the time where I joined this community and the time until now I met a lot of new people. Also in this time I learned a lot. First of all I learned how to mod Minebuilder, which is very simple and today I am not proud of me, that I can edit xml files. Moreover I learned how to programm some applications and apps. The first application I made is the Minebuilder Handbook, which was not the best. But I think everyone was a beginner and so do I. But today I am making games with some of this community and I really want to say THANK YOU because without your community and you Space Walrus I would never find this new kind of hobby.
Maybe I will remember back to this time and think about how it would be if I never joined this community.
THANK YOU Space Walrus and also thank you Space Walrus community for that awesome time!! <3

| ||I got surprised when I saw the news, since I was busy so I couldn't play Minebuilder... |
Thank you, SW Team for making this awesome game that made me play for several years.
It was a great time building from a small hut in Singleplayer to a huge city in Multiplayer; finally I proved that building a metropolis in MB is possible.
It's a sad thing that the development is ceased, but It would be a great achievement for you guys as a nice experience for your future career and projects.
And thank you all of the nice builders who helped me building the Comet City.
ps. It would be awesome if it's possible to make a program which enables to convert Multiplayer maps into single

It certainly is possible, but not easily done.
Might take a look at it sometime when I'm less busy. No promises though.
