Nobody even knows who owns the rights to redistribute Oni source. smile And making anything for a 7.5 year old game is risky.

Re: spamming bungie

Thousands of Oni fans vs millions of Halo fans. Where do you think the money is?

Re: spamming bungie

Re: spamming bungie

I'm not sure exactly how much advertisement was done for Oni.  But I do know that Bungie made their first trailer for it in '98 and their second in '99, and never another one after that.  They were also showing it at expos in '99 and '00, and putting up big banners for it, but by the time the game finally came out it seems to me like Halo had taken away everyone's attention from Oni.  Maybe Bungie's attention too.


byproducts are fine, but where's the beef?

Re: spamming bungie

Certainly not having multiplayer was also a big hit to Oni's popularity.  A lot of new and old Oni fans would come out of the woodwork if multiplayer were announced tomorrow smile
