From what i recall
- instant action announces ownership of tribes ip
- IA announces t1 coming to browser ftp model
- 1.40 is leaked and developement is halted by IA
- IA sells the ip to HiRes

can someone give me a detailed descripton on what happened and who did what?

Is it safe to say that "undercover lover" killed instant actions plans on playtribes?



Sorry for the ****post but im legitimaley curious as to what happened. It seems like a lot of details were left out of the whole story and i feel like people know more about it now than back then.

garagegames was already spiraling
torque3d could not compete
instant action was not profitable and not a smooth experience
the investors at IAC probably did not care about playtribes
the leak was early 2010
gg shut down and sold off everything later the same year

im assuming we were never gonna see playtribe regardless of the leak

SOUNDS LIKE PLAYTRIBES AND THAT OTHER GAME BEFORE "PROJECT Z" WERE PRELUDES TO SOMETHING

AND IT DOES NOT FEEL LIKE MIDAIR

BUT WISHING FOR A GOOGLE PROJECT X IS PROBABLY LOFTY THINKING

Actually a tribe themed side scroller like flappy bird except without that death ceiling would be kinda cool. Like a side scroller/skiier. Then random discs flying at you from the right of the screen. Youd have to jet to dodge them. **** flappy bird i was really thinking of jetpack joyride with skiing.

Why can't we just put tribes in a browser and use patreon to fund ****?

I think its because fps games typically perform poorly on browser base. Idk if thats what broast meant by "instant action was not profitable and not a smooth experience"
