Guinness World Record For “longest Update Support

GWR Gamer’s Edition 2017 was published today and what do we find there?
UnReal World gets a world record with “Longest update support for a game” title. Basically, that means that since the first version release there has been a constant stream of updates, for a record-setting 24 years in a row.

It’s some record for us and the game, but it’s also a record for you dear players, fans and followers. It is your support and feedback which has made it possible to keep up the journey this long.

I take this as a great acknowledgement both for UrW and for the whole roguelike genre in general. The genre is famous of long running labour of love projects. There are also other games started back in 90’s with a long development history. What did put us in the book is probably the extra-ordinary continuity till this day, the work being carried on by the very same original developer(s), with no hiatus or pauses during this nearly quarter of a century.

Special greetings to the players who have been playing the game for all these 24 years.
Very special greetings to the players who asked back in 1992 if there are going to be any future updates. :)

Cheers and thanks to all of you for making history with us.

Congrats!
I know i'm new to this forum...Wish i've known about this game sooner.
Saw it running through "Suggested games" on Steam...Saw they charged 10 euro for it.
Went to Youtube to see 5 hours of walkthroughs and fell in love. Best survivor game ever made.
And the dedication are amazing. True Nature people and modern technology merged in one.
A very rare combination. I Just Love It!!! Just what I was Looking For. :D
Prefered to download it from your homepage, and donate, rather than Steam.
But I will buy it on Steam too..:) Thanks for the beautiful downloadable video after donating.
Congratulation for the award, it's definitely well earned.. :)
