DO NOT BUY THIS GAME
It's now official that the devs have abandoned it:

As an early purchaser, I would be happy if they just released the source code under a permissive license such as the GPL. This seems like the best solution if they are no longer interested in working on it.

When is something that is coming from news sites a official (especially if they didn't do a good job of getting information)?

The news site is not official no, but it linked to the forum where moebius (the new hired programmer) said it was abandoned. Yes the original dev has tried to backpedal this, but no-one in their right mind believes him.

The fact is that the main developer did not say its abandon and there will be no development for it, he just said that he is leaving it as he is not getting paid. People need to learn to read, and stop assuming things (especially a lot of news sites that do a very bad and shallow job).
So no, the games is not abandoned, and for sure it is not official (it was for short time back in feb, but now its not).

You claim that the main developer did not say it's abandoned. He said, in the forum post the gamasutra article linked to:

"Again I'm sorry that we had to pull the plug right here"

The only reason Xavi is mentinoning hiring someone else is because of the backlash. Anyway all he intends is to hire someone else on commision. It's a no-risk to him thing that no-one will take.

Honestly it reminds me of a guy trying to sell a horse corpse he has in his boot. He keeps opening his boot and showing it to a new guy and saying "There you go what do you think?" and they shake their heads and walk away.

"Again I'm sorry that we had to pull the plug right here" is not related with the thing will the game still be developed, as he said in his tweeter or other news articles.It is directly related for him leaving the game and not working on it anymore.

I am not interested what you think or assume here. I am here to correct you when you said the game is abandon and cancelled as it is 100% not correct, that is a fact. You can assume all you want, that he will not hire a new guy, or that it is because of the backlash, and that's what you need to say, not some official things that the game is dead.

Also, very good and in depth article about all this:

Dude, difference between this article and your is that your says the game is dead, no updates in future, nothing.

The article i linked say that there is plan to continue the development of the game. And that is exactly what I am saying. People reading your comment will think, that is dead for good, with no plan for future, and that is not the case.

I said don't buy the game it's abandoned. The article you linked to said the game is abandoned too. What's the problem? I never used the word 'dead'- that was only ever you.
