...I still don't know where BYOND is headed. What its goal's are. Who is developing it. How big the team is.
I have been here on and off for seven years, Dan and Tom created BYOND. Dan left or something. Tom stayed. Other than that, everything is just not there. Not much information. No Roadmaps at all. For a technology and game service company, its easy to see why it has not grown by much.
The community is still around the 2,000-4,000 "People Online" at any one time. Its not bad but...Been like this since I got here.
Now all I know is that we are getting Flash support. Or is it moving to Flash only and killing off Dream Seeker? If you kill DS, you are Flash dependent and that is gonna die sooner or later. If im gonna be Flash dependent then why even bother with this? Might aswell just take the extra step and use ActionScript.
I have a question, Tom. How long did it take you and Dan to make BYOND? From concept to release.
