As many of you have probably seen or are about to see, the key members of the project have officially stepped down. Planet Pokemon, as it was before, is officially dead and cancelled. The Pre-Alpha will now be the main focus of this project and we will be maintaining and extending it to keep it alive and add new features. In addition to this we'll organize staff to moderate and host events in a more informal sense than before. The Alpha and any version planned beyond that, along with the features involved in them, are now completely cancelled and will not be pursued. The forum, other services, and the project as a whole will be undergoing some rapid changes due to all of this.
Finally,we'd like to apologize to everyone the team's failure to see this project to fruition. I know many of you were looking forward to a finished game, or at the very least an early version, but reality has a way of working against those kinds of dreams sometimes. The team put many long hours into this project and we all wanted to ambitiously move forward with it, but things such as availability and life can get in the way on a non-profit fan-project like this.
All in all, don't lose hope! We can still make this a fun thing that people enjoy playing.
