I am hoping that you will make this game a reality one day. Ive donated and played the game. I hope to see some updates, but for the most part I'm with you guys if you need anything. Please keep at it and I'm sure if you can make The World like its supposed to be it will be one of the greatest MMOS out there today. Thanks again. Slade

I just found out about this like 5 mins ago and made an account here just to ask question about this. Is this up and functional? Can anybody play it? Is it free? I'd love to download and play this, but I need a lot of clarification before I do anything.

Seeing your name made me happy again. Its been probably around 7 or 8 years now since i played The World with you. Not directly with you of course but seeing this project brings back memories and I tank you for that. Not sure if the name is familiar but I was Bata 1. I worked closely with PsychoMantis from the Turks guild, man looking at old pictures of that game even today fills me with excitement. When ever this project is finished I will be sure to play it. Thanks again for doing this

I am incredibly happy I happened to find this project.
Ever since I watched the first .hack// anime, I've been a huge fan of the series; I'd even go to say it's my favorite game/anime franchise of all time.
I am also very pleased to see that the quality of the assets you've shared images of is top-notch, and I'm looking forwards to seeing updates made to the project.

We'll work on getting something up soon. We're in the middle of some major networking updates at the moment, changes that are necessary for the game to become a full fledged mmo.

You can however find more information on the forums, Forum.iridiumbased.com
