Nothing. It's what happens in 27d 8h 28m 3s you want to worry about.

Having been through this once before I shall attempt to ease your minds.

At the end of the countdown last time there was no pain or anguish, just nothing. Nothing except for the voice of Minerva speaking for a short time and then all was silent until now. Minerva in her mercy has seen fit to resurrect this forum for the benefit of us all.

Or she's had a better idea this time around...

I just hope it won't take 26d 8h 21m for the final chapter of Metastasis to get released.

Maybe when the counter ends the forums will receive Minerva's Second Coming and we will be judged for are actions and inaction in this petty life?

Unless this is the second part of the previous experiment and the forums will just get deleted again. How would our views on this life change since we have already experienced nothingness once? How will we react to our imminent destruction when we know (or at least hope) we won't be deleted forever, like our deeds from the previous experiment were preserved?

From the ashes to ashes
From dust to dust.

Y'know, if we -do- get the final chapter when the timer runs out, no one will care that the forums are gone.

Final chapter? There are 9 parts, not just 3.

Final chapter of Metastasis. Metastasis only has three chapters over four maps, not 9 parts.

Final chapter of Metastasis. Metastasis only has three chapters over four maps, not 9 parts.

But MINVERA as a whole has 3 chapters, each of which is split into 3 episodes. Metastasis is the first chapter. The second chapter has been tentatively titled Chronoclasm. As for the third, who knows?

Of course I -was- referring to chapters as levels you can select from the New Game menu. :P Cause, y'know. They're clearly labelled "CHAPTER X" in the game. Why is this being dragged on?

Cause if you are going to pedant you should try to get it right?

But that's just a guess.
