I see a lot of people still playing this game. Lots of people would rather play it over Minecraft because, despite being a lot simpler, there's something special about Eden.
But as we know, it's no longer supported. And eventually it won't even be able to run on modern iOS devices anymore.
I'm not sure how many people are still around here, but I figured I'd throw it out there.
A while back, I was building a voxel engine (that's what Eden is). But it didn't get anywhere because I had too many other things to deal with in my life.
Now, I have time again. And so I thought about starting over and rebuilding Eden. Why? Because I personally want to play a game like Eden that's actually supported.
Would anyone be interested/willing to participate? We could, after getting the foundation built, expand it to include brand new features and improvements that don't currently exist in Eden. Additionally, we could write a tool that loads all your current Eden maps into the new game so that you don't lose any work.
We will also be able to support more platforms easily, such as Android.
The only issue I have is artwork - I'm no artist and we can't use Eden's artwork legally. But before worrying too much about that, I'm just interested in seeing if anyone else would be interested in it or if this is really the end of Eden.
