has been in a strange sort of limbo since last summer when Sparkplay Media
all but folded. The company closed down both the game and the website and also laid off all but two employees as of August 2010. The first of the year brought a glimmer of hope in the form of the title's acquisition by Sankando
as well as a fresh round of fan discussion
Since then, it's been all quiet on the Earth Eternal
front, but the silence was broken a few hours ago via the game's Twitter
feed. While the amount of information is far from overwhelming (the tweet acknowledges that Earth Eternal
has been reborn as Ikimonogatari
and links to the new website), it's good to see that the game may yet return in some form or fashion.
