Has anyone tried contacting Katie lately? If this episode is indeed dead in the water, I'd rather hear it from her, rather than speculating about its status here.

I mean, isnít that kind of the point of this forum Numbers?  We havenít heard anything or had any replies from Katie in quite some time in regards to any progress being made.  Until then, letís speculate away.

Maybe, someday, weíll get a fangame to close it out.

Haha, a fangame to finish a fangame series (that hasn't been updated in 10 years) that was created to finish a game series that (originally in 2002) hadn't been updated in 4 years.  I love it.

We can call it Dark Phoenix IX: Every Cloak Has a Silver Lining

...Fine, I'll do it. I can try at least. It's the least I can do, right? I've stuck around this long.

I sent her a message yesterday. Hopefully, I didn't inadvertently create a wave of people PMing her, though I doubt many people have bothered.
I have no mouth, and I must scream.

I've always sort of assumed that since she had a baby a while ago, she was being kept pretty busy.  I have thought about contacting her recently, but never gotten around to it.

You know... this is exactly the kind of conversation we had on the UnicornTales forum, about Karen, before we found out why she wasn't responding.  I'm no pessimist, nor do I like to jump to conclusions, but I'm starting to feel a case of deja vu.

Same. I hope I didnít bug her either. She hasnít answered me yet at least.

I wouldn't want to do a fan game if it was actually still being made... If it really is dead, that's another story. I have a business now that's based on game development and I'm gonna be focusing my time on making for-profit games, but if there was a way I could help get this 5th episode done, and POStudios allowed it, I'd do my best to help.

There is a "Contact Us" option under the "Company" tab on the top of each page, so the option's already available. The problem is actually getting a response back from them; a lack of communication has been a consistent problem with this company.

Happy May to the development team! Hope you are all doing well!
Grateful about a free game currently in development & offering support to the dev team in hopes the final episode will be released. Will keep waiting for updates.

Iím sad to say... there probably is no development team anymore. And thereís certainly no development team looking at this message board.

Itís become a bad habit for me, checking up on here every week or so for the past... 5 years+ hoping for a real update. Time to move on. The sad thing is that an unfinished game like this really makes it hard to want to replay the first 4 chapters... Itís worse than rewatching Lost or Game of Thrones after their finales...

At least the Odd Gentleman 2015 series is (sort of) worth revisiting.

I contacted them asking if there was anything I could do to help. In fact I found a post from years and years ago stating that if anyone wanted to finish it, they could. But obviously a lot has changed since then. I really hope that there is a chance that part 5 could get release someday. I would have been happy with a worse quality version that was announced during haunted castle than never at all.

I agree completely - glad you contacted them. Iíd also like to help if I can. Iím sure we could seriously rally a bunch of fans to get it completed, even if itís a buggy, unpolished final product.
