Wayfar 1444 will suspend service as of 11/10/16

The wayfar1444.com domain will no longer be available starting 10th Nov. If service resumes a notice will be posted on this blog. Previous articles, which may be helpful for hellcore users, will remain available at http://wayfar1444.blogspot.com indefinitely. Thanks to the many players that tried our game, and if a new game is released, or MOO service resumed, you will be notified!

 Love, El Management

  1. Hello.
    Text games are not, as you say, a dying breed. MUDs and interactive fiction games are more popular than ever, especially among the Visually Impaired community.
    Many people with a visual impairment (such as myself) have enjoyed Wayfar 1444 for many years. I am asking you not to give up on the game; I would hate to see the game die.
    Also, 2D html5 realtime shooters are not accessible at all.
    Have you considered passing Wayfar 1444 off to another person? I'm sure somebody would be delighted to take over the project in your stead.

  2. This makes me very very sad although I did see it coming. You guys created a great game and I'm really sad I can't return in the future to get more of that fabulous Wayfar adventuring. Also thank you so much for all the awesome and fun moments you gave us. Much <3 and the very best!

  4. Heya! I played for about a year as Breakman / Sniper_Joe, I was fairly known on Hell and I spent a lot of time trying to be as helpful as possible to the Wayfar project. It is sad to see that it is gone (for now) but if you guys wanna sling me a line you can mail me at contact.nanie@gmail.com

    I'd be happy to help out / be a pawn for future projects. I honestly only left Wayfar because a rollback had sent all server data back several months after I had done a lot (which was a morale killer for sure) but if you ever host it again I'd certainly return.

  5. Hello, i really hope you are going on sometimes and read comments on here. I hope, you will continue service really really soon, cause forum.audiogames.net is wanting wayfar back, and i do. I really do want it back. Please. If you can, please, get the mud back up. Please!

  6. I did really enjoy this game. As one of the very few actual accessible ones that involved building up a base for those with a lack of eyeball functionality, it was sad to see it go. I sincerely hope it comes back, but will understand if it does not due to other commitments. If it is hosting space that is the problem, I have a server running nearly constantly with fairly good specs, so would be more than happy to provide. Not that you're probably reading these, but hey.

  7. This was my favorite text-based game to play for a few months. Incredibly sad to see it go as I was frantically searching for it this past week. Found out it had been taken down and can't satisfy my need for that unique genre that was so addicting to play with. You should think about letting someone take Wayfar 1444 over, so that we may still be able to play and satisfy our Wayfar needs. Really missing this right now, it almost seems like my favorite MUDs are dying out on me. Whats next?

  9. I am the admin of www.audiogames.net.
    I was extremely sorry to see the mud go down.

    There are plenty of text games and muds still going strong, especially on mobile platforms, but Wayfar1444 was unique, the procedural generation, all the stuff to find, the easy to use vehicles, there was so much you could do in the game and so much yet to expand from colony management to extra planets.

    And yes, there is the access front.
    I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of accessible rts games, and none are scifi, furthermore none are multiplayer or have the exploration and detail Wayfar1444 had.

    I have played many muds, still have many fond memories of my time on Wayfar1444, so I'd love to see it make a return, as I'm sure you will gather from these comments, would many other people.

  12. If the codebase still exists somewhere, I would gladly host this for free and/or take over the project. Feel free to contact me here or at Gmail at torin1@...
