Developer of Twilight Wars Shuts Down

Smiling Gator Productions, the developers of a massively multiplayer online/ first person shooter hybrid game, has called it quits. Its game, Twilight War: After the Fall, will be shut down. The PC title Twilight War, brought Smiling Gator Productions some news attention during the later part of 2004 when they announced that they would be one of the first developers to incorporate Valve Software™s, Source Engine. The news brought optimistic comments from Gabe Newell, CEO of Valve, We are eager to see the Source engine used for an MMRPG by Smiling Gator Productions. The ability to render realistic environments and create compelling characters with true-to-life emotional expressions will be a great innovation for one of the industry’s most promising genres." In spite of the high expectations for the game, the company failed to realize the hoped success for its new online game. In a statement made on Smiling Gator Production™s website, an explaination was offered as to why the company was shutting down, "Our committed funds have run dry and we were not successful in the hunt for additional investment. The websites and email will be disabled in the coming days, so this is our last announcement before we shut down for good. The statement continued, Thanks again to our fantastic forums community for all the support and contributions! We hope you find another project and give them the devotion and incisive comments we’ve enjoyed reading for the past 17 months." Smiling Gator Productions was founded in the year 2003 by former employees of AOL/Time Warner and Link Simulation and Training. COMMENT HERE
