Melkor is either dead or so far removed from life that he'll never be found.

At least thats the theory we ended up working with a decade ago when he gave up talk about his version of the game.

Re: Question ... by BizarroBizarro, 09 Feb 2019 01:36

If anyone had an opinion on how the game was "re-made" … would it be a 1:1 relaunch of the original as close as possible? Or maybe something similar improved upon if I'm able …

I'm currently working on building an engine, and am coming up against some missing details (no knocks against the wonderful work these guys did on the help sites, I just remember how secretive we were as admins) and am having to decide if I'm willing to get creative and come out with something slightly different than the original. As I read more and more I see how much more complicated they made the game since I stopped working on it.

I know there appears to be (by reading this forum) several attempts made and gone stagnant … so I won't give any promises, but I'm very interested in trying. I really did love and enjoy this game for a long time, and I'd like to try to do it some justice.

Does anyone that might still be lurking around here happen to know anyway of getting in touch with Melkor?

I have a few … questions … for a research paper I'm writing … o_o;


Question ... by AekaschaAekascha, 31 Jan 2019 03:57

Very nice! I wish I had finished my degree. I did pretty much the same thing … it was boring and i'd rather have played games.
I can appreciate how difficult it would be to get back into it … I have tried a few times and have not been successful.


Hey, BP here. I don't visit here as much but I still do, I still appreciate anyone and everyone who visits, and leaves their 2 cents behind.

My life:

I went back to school. Yep, 33 year old Kyle is back in school. Same place where 20 year old Kyle dropped all his classes, never shown up, and played Shilla. Yeah… not the greatest times and nothing I'm too proud of.

But I just finished my 1st semester with straight A's. Hell yeah!

Goal is to finish the rest of the 2 year program in 1(including summer classes) by the end of the year. That'll be my 2 year degree.
I would like to transfer to a 4 year college but time/money/etc… may change my mind but that is the goal.

This takes up a huge amount of time plus 40 hour work weeks, social life with wife, 2 cats, dog, etc… I'm a busy person.

I hope everyone has a great 2019! I'm sure I'll find time now and then to visit and see if anything or anyone thinks of Shilla.

Hey Mikya! I remember you. Glad you came by and yeah, it's crazy its been 10 years now…. real crazy.

Nobody would stop you. If things make progress please share. I'd be curious to look at it at least.

Thank you for creating such an awesome game!

I would like to think for a few of us, this game changed our lives in one way or another.

Nice to see you find this site and it just shows to me how important it is to keep this thing going.

Just noticed it's been 10 years last month since Shilla went down. RIP!

Keep us posted. It sounds like a lot of work went into the original game and I feel like some of that could probably be streamlined with modern web technology.

If you decide to do this it would be cool if you made the source available on github. I'm a web developer, and this is something I wouldn't mind contributing to here and there.

by Makaque (guest), 06 Nov 2018 18:33

We will definitely meet soon. Glad I met you.

Re: 8 Years Huh...? by NappNapp, 08 Oct 2018 15:19

This is true. All the coding was wiped which is why we didn't go through the hassle of re-making it. Even when we wanted to move to The Victorian Age, it was just annoying and seemed like a waste of time as we were spending a lot of time on a game for a few people.

Re: So ... wow. by NappNapp, 08 Oct 2018 15:17

Is this okay to do? if not ill make something similar i just miss playing shilla.

Remaking shilla? by BeccaInABoxBeccaInABox, 05 Oct 2018 22:48

I must say it touches me that anyone remembers this game. I am sure many of you have many long ago memories about what Shilla was and how it fit into your life. I am deeply touched by that. The reason it hits me so is that I am the original creator of the game. Yes, way back day one, I developed the first bit of code. I believe the first time the game went live was 1994. It started to really pick up in 1995 when users of WebTV (MSN TV) started playing. It was one of the few games they could play with the design of the WebTV.

It is interesting to read about your stories over the years as all of us, including me, had moved through life and spent a bit of time with Shilla. Thank you for that!

I have been contemplating trying to recreate it. I don't have any of the original source code but was going to start doing what I can from things I could remember and from info on the help site. I'm almost done with my software development degree and keep thinking of making it a focus soon.

Yeah i have been hoping to be able to find someone that would actually have the the source of the old game. I have a friend that would possibly be interested in bringing it back when he finishes school and i know i would really love to play the game again.

by Magicast (guest), 20 Oct 2017 06:21

I needed to use an actual computer for something today and I was like…. this seems to be the time where Shilla died…. and yeah, I was right.

I can't believe it's been 8 years.

I still miss it for some reason I just can't explain. Even though I'd never play it again… I just miss the past.

Real life aside… I'm married and we own a house. I guess that makes me grown up huh?

The wedding was great, and I had invited a few Shilla players… AA and Loco made it, Blink and Nappa couldn't. Napp… we still need to find a time in life to meet up. Blink… I'm sure down the road we'll get together.

Guess there really isn't a whole lot to say…. but I'll keep this site around always until they take it away from me, so I hope we keep getting the random people saying hi from time to time.

Maybe one day it'll come back again…


8 Years Huh...? by BizarroBizarro, 07 Sep 2017 05:26

Not sure what made me think of shilla today, but I decided to do a Google search and came across this thread. I played the game in highschool and spent many many hours playing. It was a great game had a lot of fun playing it. I played the old shilla as Blacklabel.
