    Just curious on who owns this game at the moment? used to play but seems like no one plays anymore and there are not really any updates. is it because there is no more funding for the game? because i thought it was suppose to have it out on steam or was the plan i thought.

    There has not been any funding for this game since 2010. At that time this game was officially shut down https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/InstantAction. This game is owned by IAC http://iac.com/ They made an agreement with a few members of the community allowing them to distribute a standalone client of the game through legionsoverdrive.com. I believe this prohibits putting the game on Steam. Any modifications since 2010 were made by community members working on this as a passion project. The agreement with IAC makes it such that any content created for this game immediately becomes the property of IAC. Without any way to be compensated or even own their creative property, virtually all community members working on this game have given up.
