According to Donna Powell, the co-creator of Twin Skies, they're still working on something in 3D.

I wish y'all would read through all the information available rather than post an inaccurate news story. The 2D story takes place before the meteors hit the smaller planet. When the game takes off, Adam has said on the forums that they intend on releasing the 3D game. That which has happened in the 2D game will directly affect what happens in the 3D game.

From the post:
"So... we're not doing a 3D MMO any more. If things go well its certainly an option for us in the future, but its not something we're going to make a decision on for the next year at least. Twin Skies is going to be in 2D, made in Flash and it's going to be free to play."

Doesn't seem to be any gray area there. They're not making a 3D MMO. They're not going to make a decision on the possibility of reviving the 3D MMO until next year. The 2D game will be the focus instead.

If there has been an update to this in a forum post since then, that's a new issue that doesn't pertain to this story posted on January 2nd. This isn't an inaccurate news story. It's a week-old news story.

Except for on the same day as the post, January 1st, Adam said this on the forums:

"Yeah, I know, its very disappointing for us too :( We're absolutely going to do the 3D game though when we are able to. Think of it as a sequel to the 2D game, set thirty years later."

AND

"The Twin Skies 3D game will be set in the current time period, the one we've talked about on the site over the past months. Twin Skies 2D will be set a to-be-determined number of years in the past (probably around 30)."

As you said, the news story was posted on the 2nd of January...a whole day after all of this was posted on the forums. So yes, it is an inaccurate article.

That's fine with me... I wanted it to be F2P since the beginning.
