Cancelled is warranted, I feel. The Farm could also be there if we can trust the Wiki. Listing every joke Mateusz made...? Less important. As if that could ever be a complete list anyway.

No, there's no good reason for that. I've never understood The Farm to be anything more than a joke, so why would it be anywhere on the Wiki.

As for a "cancelled" section, even if it was a good idea, it's technically empty. SubEx was never started, even though it was confirmed; it was just de-confirmed, basically. It can stay where it is, categorized as it is, especially since it's not completely off the table.

Because the Wiki page for the Engine says it was mentioned by Mateusz' as if it was not a joke. To be fair, I also believe it was entirely a joke.

"The game was originally mentioned by the author in a forum post back in 2012; however, the community was very skeptical that it would ever see its release, along with two possible titles of "Submachine: The Sewers" and "Submachine: The Farm"."

I wish this could be better sourced, to be honest. Mateusz doesn't say anything useful about these game publically anyway, but even the mentions here link to semi-obscure, un-archived things.

The forum post from 2012 only mentioned The Engine and The Sewers.
The Farm was first ever mentioned on this post from 2014.

...that's clearly not even a joke. Mateusz, why do you do this to us?

Okay, so, to recap on the "existence" scale.

Engine - 2012-present
Sewer (not Sewers) - 2012-2017 (at the latest)
Farm - 2014-2017 (at the latest)
Explorers - 2017-2018 (at the latest), plus a sort of zombie-life as a maybe post 2025.
Legacy - 2018-present.

EDIT: Correction, I found mentions of Legacy in 2017.

Lets not forget about Infinite, which Mateusz discarded to produce instead the Royal Storage Facilities location in Sub10.

Wait, did I read this correctly? Did Mat ever say that the RSF was supposed to be some sort of "spiritual successor" to SubInf? I didn't know there was a direct connection between the two; I just thought SubInf was an idea that never took off, and then Mat made RSF later.

Gonna bump some topics again:

Talk:Location - Topic: "Renaming and redirecting location pages to coordinate numbers"

Talk: Cultural influences in the Submachine series - Topics: "IRL images?" and "Rename"

Talk:Portal - Topic: "binary portals"

I also remember Mateusz somewhere saying specifically that RSF was the replacement of SubInf. Maybe it was in the old MAT thread.

Hmm, well, the archive for the old Mat thread starts in 2015, so there is a good chance it is in there, if you are remembering correctly. I mean, he would not have said anything before the release, surely, and the archive... does it not start the same month? December 2015?

Also, Mat can you chill? 0_o

I mean, I guess he did looking at the above, but jeez.

Also, this might be the first mention of The Big Game?

EDIT3: Is this... approving of the idea? #chatter, 3rd of October etc. etc.

That would be awesome if he got to make it :D

though daily updates seems overkill, maybe weekly or biweekly is a more reasonable goal.
