It looks like Xtranormal really is shutting down soon. They've had major, unfixed technical problems for months, they've abruptly stopped selling points, and I hear that a number of essential employees have suddenly departed the company. I don't want to go into more detail because I don't know how much of this stuff they want to keep private, but it really looks like the end is nigh.
If you have anything you want to do using
Xtranormal, I would strongly suggest doing it immediately. It really
saddens me to say it, but I would be surprised if Xtranormal is still
around by the end of July.
What that means for this
series is that I'm going to be forced to wrap things up faster
than I expected. I already felt like the series was nearing the end, but being forced to
quit so suddenly really sucks. It's possible I'll do a penultimate
episode to clear some things up before I post the final one, but right
now I think it's more likely I'll just post that last episode and be
done with the whole thing.
I will always be grateful to the
people who created Xtranormal and kept it running. I know I'm not the
only person who will really miss the program. Here's hoping that somebody
somewhere is working on an animation program that's even half that good.
