Battle For Venga Islands is over.

I pulled BFVI.

The reason is that the game relies on having multiple people online in order to get the full experience of the game.  For the first few weeks, this worked, and worked really well.  But as sales tailed off, and fewer people were buying and playing the game, it just didn't seem fair for new players to spend their hard-earned $1 and show up to an empty wasteland.

I'm not sure if I'm the only person in history to pull their game, but I figured I wasn't going to make any more money from it, and it was more important to preserve what little reputation I have.  Or at least not generate a new reputation as a scammer.

I have the framework in place for a new game, but no motivation.  Maybe that will pick up soon, but I'm just taking it easy for a while (my Team Fortress 2 bug has flared up again, which isn't helping any!)
