could be, that he was himself the subcontractor for
another company that wanted to make the Utopia game,
and paid him.

So he could use the concept and demo to show others,
pretending that his company was working on the game.
Then he just needs to wait for the first payments from them,
and then lets them sit duck.

Sorry, I forgot a 0 - it was in fact 35000 seconds, not 3500.

Yes, we're now in A7 development mode again. And the time spent for the MMOG is not totally lost - the MMOG engine kernel can be useful for a future engine version. Also many detail improvements already went into the engine and the importers.

As a resume, although we've spent some unpaid time for the project, it was also exciting and a lot of fun. We'll certainly do such a project again when the opportunity comes. Probably we'll then look a little closer into our client right from the beginning. wink

Good story jcl. A very interesting read. I especially like the part with the dialog for the motion capture. "With or without face and fingers?" Hilarious!

lol, how do you do a mocap sex scene? just have typical actors "move like it".... or maybe hire porn actors to actually do the deed? seems like it'd be hard to get good accurate results without..... well.... actual sex.

Very interesting!

Now we have to add the story to the wiki.

I'm not so sure, from what I read Utopia was about human on human action, not ape on human.
