Hey guys,

I sadly wish to inform you that Funeral Quest has been shut down.

A combination of reasons lead to this including hardware failure, dwindling player base, reports of cheating, lack of time to watch it and a tourney just ended so it's a pretty good time.

Thanks for playing.

This is truly a sad event to take place. I have enjoyed this game over the years and was elated when it came back this last time, but unfortunately, some people just could not behave themselves with their universal egos and just had to ruin things for everyone else.

Funeral Quest will always be the top game for me. It shall be sorely missed :: sniff, sniff ::

Perhaps someday another version of this totally fantastic game shall emerge upon the cyber world for a whole new generation to enjoy digging holes, chasing cats, releasing hordes of zombies to roam the streets and of course, meet and greet under that big green bottle for mochachinnos.

Farewell, Funeral Quest, parting is not so sweet but the memories shall always remain tasty along with the friends I made there lurking in the shadows of the cemetery, hospital and church. Creepy business owners and priests wave bye-bye as I slowly close and lock the door of my beloved funeral parlor for the last time as a lonely animal howls in the background giving a slight chill up the spine and a little shiver. Was that the twins I see over there out of the corner of my eye? Yes, it is, torch in hand they snuff out the flame and disappear into the night.

Thank you, Seth for the years of enjoyment and good luck in all your future endeavors.

Nice to meet you all and play side by side for the moments we had together.

The one and only
Hawk of Eternal Nesting

Well, darn! Sorry to hear it. Although . . . I will keep the bookmark, just moved to the bottom of my list. It did "die" years before, and arose from the dead. I'm forever optimistic.

That's not necessarily true. Some games have lasted for a long time.

It is true. In 20 years (maximal) these games die. Like us, humans.

But games aren't people... And I wouldn't say they last a max of 20 years. I've seen some games last longer, like some of the old classics. I still play those. And look at Pac-Man. That's lasted for ages. It was released in 1980 and it's still around today! That's 33 years...

Hawk, I have heard a lot of you, and it's sad that such a veteran of FQ has lost maybe her favourite game.
I am sure you'll miss it, but it's just a game. Good luck in your future.

Sad, more and more games dies

I don't think online games can live over 20 years, because more and more games are coming, unless it's like Pac-man, Mario or sonic :sweatdrop:

Sad to see FQ dead and buried seems to be for good.
Missing some off my old friends on there )-:
Anyhow i`m thinking about playing around with setting up a small web server and was wondering if the FQ server files are available anywhere.
If so what amount of server memory is needed.
If i can/do get FQ working on a server I might be able to set up a small tournament.
Just an idea at the moment but any idea of whats involved would be appreciated .
Set up would be a Raspberry PI connected to a fibre network running Raspbian / Apache/PHP

I used to love playing Funeral Quest a year or more ago. Is it dead now? When I found it on my JIG google thingy I was ecstatic.
There are no active servers though. How disappointing.:(

Ask the community.

Funeral quest III confirmed? We can be like Microsoft and skip a couple of versions...

Maybe, read this!


A little background on how I choose what project to work on. (with the exception of Growtopia, RTsoft still has exactly one developer, me! (well, Akiko helps sometimes too with art)

The Dink community is telling me I need to put Dink Smallwood on steam and do updates.

Got an email letting me know I need to get Funeral Quest (a browser based multiplayer game where you run competing funeral parlors) up again. It's tricky because it's flash based and Flash is now more or less dead, huge amount of work to get that running for most browsers again.

Growtopia has a big "Fishing" update that is in the works right now. (Slowed down by iOS approval delays)

Tanked doesn't have many players, but it's still a good game and really does deserve updates.

I have a NEW game I'm designing but can't decide on which engine to use yet, need to do more research and tests. :panic:

Blip Arcade should be made free and updated to work on tablets better. (ok fine, nobody asked for that, but I'd like to do it)

Akiko wants to do a 5 hour bike ride today. I might.

Yet for some reason the only thing I've done for the last few days is play MGSV and am having a great time, I'm at 44% complete, can I finish it?

Moral of the story is the great thing about running your own company is while you do need to meet certain obligations (if there is a bug in any of these games that ruin it, you need to drop everything and fix it) but you can try to follow your own personal motivation when choosing on what you want to work on next.

Motivations change from month to month. I try to be very honest and not promise "huge updates!" to games unless I know I am going to deliver and with Tanked I just don't know - the only thing I can promise is that I will do my best to keep the server running. I don't think the current income it makes every pays for the server cost anymore.

Hype?
