A fond farewell
The original classic MMORPG Roma Victor is no longer available.
In January 2011 the Roma-Victor.com web servers experienced a significant hardware failure. Given that both these servers and the Roma Victor game servers themselves were being kept online free of charge, the costs in time and hardware for a full recovery are prohibitive at this time.
So it is with a heavy heart that we've taken Roma Victor offline for good. We had announced back in May 2010 that the servers would be taken offline before the end of 2010, and obviously we let them run, at our own expense, for some time beyond that original deadline.
RedBedlam is currently focussed exclusively on developing projects for third parties. It is worth bearing in mind however that a great deal of work was put into the project codenamed 'Roma Victor 2', and we still have every intention of releasing a top quality historically authentic 'remake' at a later date.
All user data from the original Roma Victor has been backed up and stored safely. It is our intention that this data will be used in a future Roma Victor game to ensure that our original community will have new assets proportional to their previous standing.
Roma Victor was a massively ambitious project and it would never have seen the light of day were it not for the support of, what we still maintain, was one of the best and most coherent of online communities.
We would like to take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of those who participated in this project.
