I've been watching the game for a while now, nothing new has happened and people have left. Robby instead of letting this game go to waste, why not sell it onto a developer who's more interested in the development of the game than you are. Don't take this to offence it's just an idea.

A common method to value a business unit is its annual profit multiplied by three.  Profit in 8bit has always been minimal relative to the size of its player base, so following this model, buyers would want to purchase the game for a trivial sum.  Through many years, I've had these conversations with multiple investors, and they inevitably followed this logic.

 

The risk of someone taking it over and ruining/killing it just isn't worth the payout.  Furthermore, I also value the ability to make another MMO based on the code base one day in the future (but not anytime soon).
