    Thank you all for following us on the rollercoaster of a journey that has been the development of Hiraeth. It has changed hands a few times over the years, but the community has always been what made being here enjoyable. The biggest dedication from all of this was the time you all spent with us, growing with us and learning with us. What we created in the end although remarkable, was just frankly meeting too short from our expectations. Right now, progressing the development of Hiraeth was too much trouble than it is worth right now. We are storing everything we have for the game so far, and hope to relaunch Hiraeth at a later date when we are better equipped, prepared and with better planning. For now, I have the great news that soon we will be forwarding everyone to a brand new website for a new game some of the head developers have started working on. The website is already complete, but we arent sharing it until the game is out for it in a couple of months. So stay tuned to get the information on this new game! We wont be sharing it until its in a playable state, so when we do invite you all you have something we hope you enjoy!

    The new game we are working on is called Aphelion, we are about two months out from release. I have been working with a new team on Aphelion for a little over a month now, and herry shortly after that as well. Fireflies will be joining us soon as well as a concept artist. It is a top down starship pvp warfare game. Something like Foxhole & Darkorbit.

    Hope you all join us when this new chapter begins for our studio, and as time goes on we will build our knowledge and experience to one day make a proper attempt and creating Hireath.

    Until then, Seyonara!

    So if I understand this correctly Awakened Studio will still keep it's name as a game making company.
    But becouse of a shortage of knowledge you are starting to make simpler games as a learning experience to make a great game one day?
    And the team members that started with this whole sao game thing, are they still in the team?

    1. Awakened Studio was never a company in the first place.

    2. It wasn't because of shortage of knowledge. There were many factors that caused this. PM me if you want more details.

    3. This game is not even based off SAO anymore. The entire project was turned in a different direction with the change of project leader. The team has dissolved, and this project has been put on hiatus.

    Thank you for answering,
    1. I didn't mean company as in a money making business but more as a team that could be a well known game creator studio in the future.

    2. I'd love to hear the factors that coused it.

    3. I know that the game wasn't based on sao anymore but I was still curious if some of the founders are still at Awakened-Studio.
