Sim9, if you don't act now, all of your work for the past several years will be gone.
It doesn't even seem like you'll pay respects to your own dying creation, or try and save it with something as simple as a dark blue plastic block.
All you have to do, is say something such as "I'm currently working on <X>, a new game," or a reason why you haven't been updating and you could save some of the community, or give them something to look forward too.
And if you don't want to work on 8bit anymore, or feel like the problem is that you're only one person, then LET US KNOW.
We might not be able to help much, if at all, but we would have SOME justification.
But, this is the end, and I will not stop trying to collect this game's ashes for a proper burial until Sim gives it one.
I will NOT just let your creation die without even an acknowledgment from you.
This is my ultimatum, and I will stick with it until you take action.
Now is the time for action, because the clock is ticking Sim, and you're the only one who can save your game.
