I've heard that the community is somewhat small, but uh, when I joined I did expect a few people to be around at least. It won't affect me much, but, at least a few roleplayers about would help me enjoy the game a bit more.

So with that, anybody around? Or, have any idea how many people still play?

Sidenote: Is there supposed to be music in the background? I hear a siren when pirates attack, but nothing beyond that.

Nope. No background music here.

I never RP'd much, but I've seen folks on the IRC channel from time to time.

Very quiet these days.

I see, that's a bit of a shame. To be expected of a game that runs on Flash and has been around for... a decade now, right? I'm surprised to see it's still around at all honestly. Pleasantly, mind!

I've found the Discord group with a few active people, so that's enough for me to stay. Any ballpark idea on how many people are still active? And, how're the devs doing? Still around?

I still check the Forum frequently.

We're in a long-term maintenance phase; no future Skyrates development is planned or likely.

Good to see a few faces about.

You know, I can't help but wonder. If there were, say, a sudden resurgence in a playerbase, would anybody be able to convince you guys to continue development?

It's doubtful.
Sorry to be so pessimistic.

No that's all right, I suspected as much of an answer. Thank you, though!

Right now Skyrates is kind of in an unfinished state, with many things not implemented or half-implemented. If it is going to be in a long-term holding pattern, for the sake of us playing, might it be rolled back just a little, to the last finished state?
