The fact is, this small Dev team has bitten off far more then they can chew. EVERY SINGLE indie sandbox in recent years has been crushed under the eight of its own ambition (except maybe perpetuum but that wasn't very ambitious). All these indie sandboxes promise the world, just look at MO, DF, Xsyon, Earthrise. All where hyped up as the savior of sandboxes, only to have many of the promised features not implemented and be a buggy mess.
The Repopulation is far more ambitious, and promises far more features then any of those games, with a far smaller dev team. The amount of features this game promises would be a challenge for a AAA company to follow through on much less a dev team of a couple people. Don't give me "but the devs are so responsive and seem to care about their customers." Yeah that was the same thing with Xsyon look how that turned out.
Upon release the game will have lots of hype, with lots of people logging in at the beginning hoping for it to be the savior of the mmo genre. Soon people will leave in droves after its revealed to be an unplayable buggy mass with a fraction of the features implemented
