I thought I would visit and see whats what. I dont know if I am happy that this is still here, or annoyed at the lack of activity. I would be gutted if bush disappeared as so much of my youth was spent here, but equally its like seeing the family dog deaf, blind, 3 legged and ******** itself - Just put the poor thing out of its misery.

There are names that I still remember, I know their personalities, their typing styles, their play preferences... and yet they are just made up internet names. I wont ever see them again, nor will I talk to the people behind them. So many inside jokes, so many community jokes that 'outsiders' dont get, but nobody to share them with. Its the house that I grew up in, with no furniture, stained walls smashed windows and a condemned sign.

Azzer, on the off chance you see this in 4 years time, shut this place down.

So long, thanks for all the fish.

I'll never forget seeing out of the corner of my eye, one of my now best mates IRL randomly playing this game in our IT class at school (Franny).
I'll never forget the first time I logged onto the virus IRC after disconnecting and seeing my Ghost in the channel and thinking it was someone pretending to me be, just for PBJ, Zane and {g}Weirdo to laugh at me.
I'll never forget meeting some of you guys IRL at Angelas.
I'll never forget hosting Azzer and Dematto at my place as a broke Uni student.
I'll never forget winning my first round as a Leader and the bond I had with random unknown players accross the world (Lukey <3).
I'll never forget how this game was an outlet for me, where I could rage, flame, strategise, maniulate and play politics in a pretend environment and how well thats served me.
I'll never forget how I created a persona of an egotistical spoilt brat leader to draw attention away from my alliances in order for them to get on with winning.
I'll never forget Frand Ferdinand - This fire due to it being my highlight song (Cold sweata)
I'll never forget how pointless end of round awards are.
Never forget TBA.


I'll never forget #Bushtarion.

If only this game could be converted to an app based game that had some resemblence to bushtarion, to get the community back together.

Azzer - Could it happen?

Of course it could happen, but it won't. Float on, wayward bloated carcass.

Defo will chip in for a kick-starter like project for this if Azzer is willing to put in the effort.

That'll be the time that you invited Dematto over from Holland to stay with you, then had to pull out for some reason leaving him stranded until some hero stepped in to save the day?

Dematto....another name I havent heard in forever. Funny how these names ring familiar. So many years playing- so much life since- seems like a life time ago!

Ok maybe I'm the minority here but I say THANK YOU Azzer for keeping it up and running.

I still have a lot of love for this place

Agreed!
Many of us did meet other players in real life- so it wasn't just text and typing styles! We are connected in other ways now, but the origin of the friendships is an ancient text based game. How quaint!

I mean a few weeks of coding I could probably do something similar, the issue is I don't have the money for things like servers plus there's copyright problems and stuff.
