Fury shuts its doors

Well it seems like the very first Australian-made MMO has unfortunately come to its end. Fury, a PvP-centric fantasy MMO developed by Auran has had all its servers and website shut down due to a failure in finding "a viable business model". My sympathies to those who actually forked out money for the game - this is the problem with multiplayer-only games in general - if it isn't popular anymore it's going to be too expensive to support, and consequently shut down. Not so bad if it's been around for several years (so at least you can say you've got your money's worth) but when it was around for only 10 months like Fury has, you might not feel so satisfied.
