Hey guys!

I would like to thank you all for your amazing contributions to the OPP project! The speed at which this took off was incredible, and some really beautiful high quality assets have been made!

Sadly the project does not continue. There were two big problems: First the wiki which hosted all the files went down because of a spam attack. Secondly it turns out that since August I have no time or energy to spend on this project, and there is nobody else taking charge.

Of course a lot of material has been created, this was one of the original goals and has been reached! Therefore I would still like to call this project a success!
All the assets will be uploaded to OpenGameArt and will likely be used in many games in the future! Also, should anyone stand up and feel like organizing this project: A lot is already there so it should be relatively easy (wiki is online, forum is here, style is defined and many assets made, even a game engine!). I would be more than happy to advice any potential project manager :).

There are a couple of people who I'd like to specially thank for this project:

Pixeljoint, Bart from OpenGameArt, Jetrel
and DDR from Frogratto and WayofthePixel for being enthusiastic and giving me the resources I needed to pull this off!

Surt, Skeddles, RileyFiery and Ellian for their input and trust in this project before it even started!

Dawnbringer for a perfect palette that made style choices easier!

Damian for his huge amount of high quality assets that pushed the expectation

Noburo and Gogglecrab for their help on the wiki

Many many others for their brilliant contributions! I will try and credit you all when I upload the files to OGA but should it happen that I forget someone please notify me!

Thanks guys! Without you this project would have never gotten so far!

It's sad to see the project end with so much left undone. :( I've actually been continuing work, though somewhat quietly, and have nearly finished several animations of the new traveler sprite. I suppose I'll finish them up and post the results.

On a side note, I've been collecting misc. assets and saving them to my computer since the project first started, so I think I may have a more exhaustive collection of artwork organized than what you have posted onto the OGA website. I can zip it all up and send it to you if you like.

My collection is not complete indeed, I left out many wips but possibly also some good stuff.
Sending them to me would be great, though anyone is free to upload it to OGA themselves!

Oh and Noburo, the wiki will stay online, this forum will stay online, there is nobody stopping you from keeping on developing!
