@Timmah! Jumpgate Evolution has been a prime example of MMO vaporware if I have ever seen it.

The studio did make Lego Universe though. My guess is that they are small and they moved nearly every developer to that game and have worked only part time on Jumpgate. Go where the money is and all. Jumpgate is a risk, but Lego Universe will have a guaranteed sell base.

And Lego Universe isn't bad. I have "heard" that the gameplay is solid - if aimed at tweens - and somewhat like Free Realms. So NetDevil is capable of producing polished products.


We shall see if this ever turns from vaporware to realware.

Hardly, just an old title being redone with a dev team of only a handful of folks.

I just hope Black Prophecy doesn't blow them out of the water.

Blow them out of the water? They would have to 'launch the ship' first.

Before you mark my comments into oblivion, allow me to prove that this is turning out to be vaporware. There are pages and pages of 'information' here about JGE, but none of the information came true. Lets just take a look at my favroites!

2009, A box, with no game to put in it.

2/2009 Hey Look, another launch date. (course it was canceled.)

Yeah I agree with Timmah it is certainly looking that way.

Jumpgate takes so much time to develop - so I used trial of EVE, found it perfectly playable (they added good tutorials and improved graphics) - and purchased 2 accounts.

Im pretty sure the only thing EVE and JGE have in common is space - other than that they are completely different gamestyles.
