Tabula Rasa Shutting Down on February 29th

GamingShogun writes, "Unfortunately, in today's troubled economy and with the intense competition between MMORPGs, it takes something very special to make a dent in the market and even more to survive. Tabula Rasa is the latest victim in these turbulent times, as the company has officially announced the game servers will shut down on February 29th, 2009. As a special thank you to its player base, the servers will be free starting January 10th, 2009. This was not a totally unexpected event as Richard 'Lord British' Garriot recently left thet..."

this game had a great concept and was actually pretty fun. But a botched launch will turn everyone away like sour milk. oh well there are tons of MMo comming. stargate...guild wars 2 star wars..star trek......not enough time in the day

Its just such a hard market to break into if you don't score big and fast you don't survive. Look at Age of Conan, had a huge userbase and due to bugs and lack of high-level content the place is a mere shadow of its former self. Tabula released to many bugs and unpolished gameplay (at least I thought so). I have heard they did a lot of patch work though and I definitely plan on trying it again before it closes down.

There won't be actually 29th February in 2009. They have a typo there...
It's a shame, It's pretty good game with a terrible start. Weak starts are rarely forgivable in MMO world.
They should do Micro Transactions from the beginning.....and had free servers to save the game....I would play it....Im pretty sure plenty of people would and see if its worth to pay for

Another one falls to the wow machine.

The trend I notice is simply, bad start = bad in the long run.
