Extra questions:

1)   How did you guys come up with the concept of PU?
All the other Pokemon MMO's were/are crap, so we thought; "We can do this much better!"

2)   When did you actually started to work on this idea?
Half 2008 or so

3)   Did you ever expected to have such a large followers of this project?
No, especially since we haven't actually released anything for such a long time. Something even we consider ourselves "vaporware" 
But we're still determined to rule the Pokemon MMO world!

4)   How much money did PU cost you personally over the past few years?

I don't have the exact numbers, but I think the total cost of PU for the last four years is about €4000. Pretty rough estimate since we also have had some donations in the past and we're getting some advertisement revenue. Could be more or less.

5)   What kept you going on rough moments?
Just putting PU aside and doing other stuff for a while.
