Deadcode, CyberShadow, & Team17
« on: September 23, 2017, 03:56 PM »
Let's clarify, if it is possible.

There's something that I quite don't get.

Who receives royalties for publishing updates for WA?
Do Deadcode and CyberShadow do this for nonprofit purposes?
Is there a legal contract between DC, CS, and Team17?
Is WA 3.8 and 4.0 real? Or is it just a bad joke?
Is Team17 aware of these updates? If so, do they interact with it?
Will Worms Armageddon be released as a new game due to WA 4.0 major overhaul of the game itself?

That's it for now.

Thanks.

How the game supposed to get updated on steam, if t17 is not aware of that?


"Much like the Matrix series,                 
the only worthwhile installation               
was released in 1999. and the ones         
called Reloaded and Revolutions              
are titles to stay away from."

Team 17.

Yes.

Not currently AFAIK. I believe they each received a one-time payment of ~$1000 for helping to release the game on Steam.

WA 3.8 is very much real and has been almost finished for several years. From what I can tell 4.0 is mostly vaporware at this time. At least the 4.0 as originally envisioned seems impossibly ambitious and that fact (and their perception of our expectations) probably demotivates them a hell of a lot. The truth is we'd be happy with anything.

Yes of course. Team 17 gave CS and DC the source code, they asked for help releasing WA on Steam, they conduct a review/vetting process on any updates made, and they host those updates on the official Team17 website.

If WA 4.0 is ever released, I think it would probably be sold as a 25th year anniversary edition or something. I would like to see CS and DC make money off of it though.

Thank you j0e for clarifying that.

I apologize if my questioning seemed a bit silly.
I appreciate the answers nonetheless.
