Contact established - and Gamigo kindly responded!
Jan 30, 2020 —
It was finally time to contact Gamigo directly and inform them about this petition and the many fans and supporters Atlas Reactor still has. Thanks again very much to the kind and professional contact person responding to my message. We agreed I wouldn't post any of our original conversation - which I will absolutely respect, so please don't ask for it - just the basic information conveyed. I will still try to update you as precisely as possible.
So, bad news first: The game as we knew it before it was shut down won't see the light of day again - according to Gamigo there are a great number of conceptual design flaws, which is why they won't re-release the game in its current state again.
Now on to the good/better news: Gamigo did and still do(!) discuss the game and also acknowledges its potential. Therefore they leave open the possibility for a complete remake. Should anything come up regarding a release of such remake it will be announced officially within this year.
So that's more or less the update I received. It's sad the original will never come back but the possibility for a potential remake is still something we can be cautiously optimistic about. I guess all we can do for now is continue to show Gamigo our support for this game (or a remake) by getting as many votes as possible and hope for the best.
Many thanks to all of you supporters all over the world! I will post an update again, hopefully when it's time to announce Atlas ReMaketor ;)
