    I went to their website and it showed free on the download button and their buy link says no long accepting payments.

    I haven’t tried to install it again.

    Just thought I’d share.

    Their forum has seen very few new messages since a few years, and the ones I read were spam...
    I’ll pass, thanks...

    When its website for down for about a day a few days ago, I though there may have been some changes coming. However, the installer for Twister has not been updated since April of 2014. So it appears to have been abandoned.

    I was saddened when Twister faded into oblivion. AFAIK it is Abandonedware. RIP
