    As long as there's people making content and playing MUGEN, it'll never die. People still avidly play DOOM, and that's a fair bit older than MUGEN is.

    Mugen seems a little too restricting now compared to newer games where you can get knocked through the floor and pile on cinematic moves. Although I like the old school combat myself.

    It isn't. In fact, it's coming back stronger with guys like Maximillion Dood, and with the huge modding scene behind it, It's an invincible killer app that stays preserved by this very awesome website! :D

    Well, I think the whole bandwidth thing with this site, at the very least, is meant to encourage newcomers to participate within the mugen community via the forums. I've known about mugen since 2004, but the older versions were kind of picky with the ms dos setup used back then, duke nuken 3d had similar issues with windows xp; alas, the newest version of the engine seems substantially more stable than the latter. But I digress, the point is members with the rank of "lurker" or lower, will help sustain this forum, that is, if they want access to the newest content creators upload.

    *Also, Mugen's a fighting game engine yeah? Even if it does become obsolete, the concept of an open source fighter engine is still relevant; meaning a new piece of software will simply replace the former.

    Hello.

    As stated before, MUGEN will always be on the hearts of who plays it.

    Personally, I think that any customizable game (or content) will never "die". There will always be something new to do.
    The Skullgirls game generated some new content for the base.

    I have been playing MUGEN for some time and, until this post, never thought before about it.

    And sooner or later, will I too join the forces of resistance...

    -Thanks
    .

    I hope it's not, cause I just discovered it a few days ago and downloaded it today XD , I miss theses retro 2d fighting games and discovering a fully moddable one like that opens up so many possibilities.

    I donīt think MUGEN dissapear just for this kind of weekend, I mean everyone loves the diversity of characters, and also if they are people who canīt create something new itīs not because the want, maybe they have other things to do. I use MUGEN since I was in the university.

    As long as people keep making characters/stages/etc., I think MUGEN will stick around for as long as possible. Right now, it doesn't look like it's dying anytime soon.

    Thing has had 1 foot in the grave for nearly a decade now.

    I haven't seen anything teetering for so long on the brink of death since my grandma's wheelchair rolled over an undetonated landmine in Vietnam on her 110th birthday.

    Define dead. I would say, based on the amount of replies, that the community isn't dead and therefore the medium cannot really be dead either. There are, collectively, more drop-out (Leaving mid-WIP) creators in MUGEN than in most other mediums I've seen but many eventually return. I don't know if you can quantify M.U.G.E.N. as ever really being alive though. The Engine was designed to serve as a supplement for an increasingly "obsolete" (In Tech, not Enjoyment) form of video gaming. M.U.G.E.N's various contributors were working with something that, from day one, was no longer garnering main stream support or endorsement. The Engine's creative team, Elecbyte, weren't dealing with life or death stakes and I don't think anyone in the community is either. In terms of new content, many creators moved on or decided to do something different, but again there will always be (at least a fringe) of new content being worked on and provided. Mugenation, Mugen Archive, & Mugen's Wikia are all still functioning (as much as Mugenation was ever functioning anyway, no offense). All continue to have new content provided by creators, serve as a safe resting ground for a cavalcade of previously lost or forgotten content, and in the event of the former two, serve as a means for the community to interact and discuss their creative aspirations, their favorite games/characters/stages/screenpacks, and even issue requests for newer content. Likewise everytime a 2D or 2.5D Fighting game gets a release there is a measurable increase in the Engine's usage. Dragon Ball FighterZ is coming out soon. No doubt a portion of that fan base will trickle into M.U.G.E.N. Just like they did with Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Street Fighter IV & V, and even Mortal Kombat IX, X, & XI. With any interest spike comes creators to showcase their skillset. I don't think anything can kill MUGEN. Many people I know still use emulators for NES, Atari, SNES, PS1 & 2, GB(C/A), and Sega. We are living in a nostalgia driven world. There will always be a demographic for MUGEN to survive off of. You can't really kill something that survives beyond hype.

    As long as there are there are people making content, there is more MUGEN to be had. I mean sure the base code is outdated but that happens. People will patch and update it and things will continue.

    It seems like it is to me, besides this site all the others seem to be pretty dead by a year or more.

    To be honest, it's not close to it's death. If it were close to it's death, then absolutely ZERO people would be on board with this engine. This site plus others I've seen on YouTube are actually still playing it to this day. I would even go on and say its not close to death because of its HUGE customization. The only thing holding back I feel is that Elecbyte hasn't been around since 2015 and they haven't updated their engine whatsoever, with their website being down as well. I hope that someday it'll rise from the dead in time of MUGEN's 20th anniversary next year. Hopefully they'll even make it open source so that everyone could update it so they don't have to keep coming back.

    What made Mugen really popular at times was when the fighting game genre was really quiet and weak. But now, it's really strong; and even moreso, the new fighting games have things you can hardly do in MUGEN. A lot of mainstream fighting gamers don't need MUGEN, but if the creators keep doing wacky unique stuff, it'll survive.
