Moonrise, the latest game from the makers of State of Decay, has been cancelled after an unsuccessful Early Access release.
“What we’ve found is that while some people really love Moonrise, there were unfortunately many more people who played the game and then moved on after a few days”, writes Jeff Strain, company founder.
“For a standalone, offline game that might be fine; but for an online game with significant server hosting costs and an expectation for ongoing development and new content, it can mean a game that not only doesn’t pay for it’s development costs, but might even cost money to operate.”
An update has been released for players who already have the game, but it no longer seems to be available for download.
Moonrise will go offline on December 31, 2015.
