This... is, to say the least, a question that has bugged me for the longest time. I mean, what happened to them? I'd like some kind of conclusion on this. Preferably from someone who has some kind of background working with them, or at least knows someone who worked for them at one point. So, what happened?

info from their blog posts.

1st generation electbye; they started mugen, died with winmugen; most likely students they quit mugen once they got jobs.

2nd generation electbyte, tried to make some money off mugen, this is when mugen 1.0 was created, quit mugen once they were unable to make money back from it.

Can anyone point to me information supporting the second part of that statement. This is news to me since I never hear about any effort to commercialize MUGEN.

Also, are the first and second generation Electbyte people the same individuals or different.

oh, I thought I had typed that, it seems like it was only one or two guys from the old generation that returned for the second one.

I have browsed all the Elecbyte official website posts and found no signs of commercialization.
For Elecbyte, the only optimistic sign in the recent past is that the Elecbyte.com domain was renewed in the first half of 2019, indicating that the expiration date of this domain name has changed from June 1, 2019 to June 1, 2020, in my opinion. If Elecbyte wants to give up mugen, it is unlikely that there will be a reason to renew the domain.
Believe it!

"Maybe they'll be back in 10 years to make VR mugen" - Hahaha!

"They come and go. Like all the people on earth" - I read this as quite dark but very true.

The fact that their domain was renewed does make a comeback a bit possible, but then again, some people renew domains 'just in case' they decide to return to it in the future. So there could still only be a 1% chance, but who knows. I had a domain that I didn't even use, it kept auto renewing for umm, I think it was about 8 years (yeah I'm stupid). I just wish the source code for Mugen was released.

I'm actually surprised there's a tweet from 2016, that's not as long ago as I thought! Then again, that's three years, but that's not long ago in Mugen terms. Concerning that tweet - Oh, Jeremy Patterson, I never knew who made those awesome looking characters, I haven't seen any of his stuff in ages. Forgive me if he's still active on this forum, I have been gone for years so I'm out of the loop. I didn't know he wanted to make a full game... He wanted $87,000 on IndieGoGo, umm... wow. And got 2% of it.

That wasnt Jeremy Patterson, that was Aiduuzi. JP was "project manager" but due to shady behavior, unrealistic goals and an overall unprofessional campaign the kickstarter tanked before it even got started.

Whoa that's sad.

Curious if youtuber Larry Bundy Jr covered it yet.
