It's already happening, I'm an actual game developer with quite some years of experience and previous personal games that have been pretty successful as alpha tests, I also work on Islands of Nyne and No More Room In Hell 2 with lots of freelancing gigs in between. This game has only been in development for two months and you can already see shitloads of progress for something that has been worked as a side project, with proper funding, a bigger team and more time we can definitively pull it off. I don't intend on this making huge amounts of money or becoming really popular (who knows?), but I just want to play FoM again and I'll do my best to get this running.

Seriously its been almost 4 years since FoM shut down and look how many of the old community still came together on discord. Sure they're all toxic, bottom feeding assholes but they're our toxic bottom feeding assholes. Most of us are still out looking for a game like FoM but there is nothing like it. The basic mechanics of FoM we're incredibly simple for an mmo, 90% of content was player generated. Even with just the basic framework of a game the player base will be able to recapture some of that. Looking forward to seeing what comes out of this.

Agreed, people hear MMO and they think it's some huge ass project with millions of dollars needed to get it running, now a days there's backend services which provide all the shit you need to get an online game running and easy integration with Unreal Engine 4. Also the game at it's core, the content will be generated by the faction leaders, using the tools I will be providing them. Yes we are a long road away from an actual release, but that doesn't mean we won't get to play the game till then, public testing sessions will be available all the way till release. With the small team and funds we have now, it's completely possible to get some sort of MMO mechanics in without that much problem, but I'm confident enough we can pull off a crowdfunding campaign or get enough $$$ to make this happen :p

Will keep an eye.
Unfortunately, I'm not a leprechaun and my Jew Geld ran out (been unemployed for two years now).
Hope it works out.

We will be using, and tweaking, the combat values from pre-attribute patch. Which most consider the prime of Face of Mankind.

I'm also very proud of what we've got together so fast in such a short amount of time. Most of the community's returning and getting decent amount of donations in already as well.

Mermer is right, after being so lost in a world of shitty mmos and games out there, it's time we came to our senses.

Fingers crossed.

Chances are very, very good.

I have been utterly surprised at just how quick the project has moved forward and the positivity that is around it.

Exactly.

We have come a tremendous way the past week or so.

Quite so indeed, imagine how many will flock from the past and new future prospects. Especially when they're not banned or given a new start so to speak.
