What happened to Project Genom, Inferna and KurtzPel?

Welcome back to another installment of Whatever Happened To, a round-up of MMOs that we had forgotten but that deserve a closer look.

Project Genome: Prepare your F-Keys for 2016 right here at the top Project Genome looks a little dead. In 2019, developer NeuronHaze took back the poorly received early access sci-fi MMO from Steam, telling players that it planned to rebuild the game around SpatialOS. Trouble is, it never really came back, and considering the game had already weathered a bizarre bout of copyright infringement drama and admitted it didn’t make enough money to survive, it looks like it wouldn’t either never do.

Kurtz Pel: Kurtz Pel is an anime action MMO by KOG Games that was released back in 2019 and fits right into the ranks of anime action titles that have been released in recent years. And while there are several updates each month, a quick look at the list reveals that most offer little content and a lot more cash shop offerings. The game is currently in the middle third season and reached a climax of 232 players last month via Steam.

Inferna: Finally we come to the open world MMORPG inferna, which was also available in Early Access on Steam back in 2019, with plans to stay in Early Access for a year. Sadly, three and a half years later it’s still in Early Access. However, developer Inferna Limited has been releasing updates and holiday events throughout The final content and balance update will be available in early May. However, the game is not suitable for 100 simultaneous players on Steam.

Sorry guys – that was a depressing trio. We’d love to know what other MIA MMOs we should check out – leave us a tip with more!
