List of Revived Online Games

Recommended Posts

The List

This is a list I've compiled to highlight community projects that have successfully revived formerly dead online games (so no ongoing games like World of Warcraft), or at least have made enough progress to have something to show and are still in active development.
It is also split into two parts: 'Online-Only Revivals' which are games that require a connection to a server to play at all, and 'Online-Service Revivals' which are games that only require a server for certain features (e.g. online multiplayer), though the list is primarily for the former.

If anybody have any suggests or criticisms, or knows of additional games I should add, please share.

is there a list for games which are decoupled, and can truly be played forever? both offline and online?

if any of the projects rely on someone else, in order to keep the games alive, i technically consider the games to still be dead

 

i would say that the true requirements for a 100% revival are:

- playable online

- playable offline

- can self host if needed

- doesn't rely on any external services, forums or communities in order to run the game

- is open source (extremely important for long term survival, pretty much required as hardware changes, as operating systems evolve)
