Smile. Yet-another-cautious-corporate-cancellation (YACCC)? (well,
people already use such unwieldy acronyms as MMMMPOG*, so why not? 
;) ).

Is there any chance the project might get resurrected? Are you free
to re-use some of the innovative stuff elsewhere (i.e. depends upon
what precisely you were innovating)?

*MMMMPOG = Mobile Massively Multiplayer Multi-platform Online Game,
a phrase I've heard used in conversation, albeit not too seriously

Personally, I'm increasingly tempted towards the long-ago suggested
"GMUD and TMUD" (graphical and textual, respectively), although
problems of not being understood hold me back - MMOG is one of those
few key words that 90%-ignorant people seem to recognise (wonder how
many random marketing people/mobile-phone companies/etc would grok
anything without MM*G in it?). Note, this is just random
musing/rhetorical questions, not intended to start another MUD vs
MU* vs MOG etc debate...<ducks and runs for cover>
