  • I see what you are saying but I don't believe it is deception. They are marketing their product like anyone else would. Kickstarters are high risk projects, it is why they are here in the first place.
  • MadFrenchie said: I think we can stop playing with these semantics and start calling it what it is: another Kickstarter game that's intentionally overestimating development progress to convince players to spend money to float the next year of actua…
  • @StaalBurgher You've used wrong unit of currency in your post. On their website the money is in dollars, not in pounds. Yup you are right, thanks for pointing that out. Force of habit!
  • Slapshot1188 said: I said the same thing to MJ.  Sorry, but either you knew your estimate was off by a huge amount and chose to say otherwise, or you didn't know which is incompetent.  Someone can be incompetent and still eventually finish a ta…
  • MadFrenchie said: More apropos, a legal requirement to provide more than marketing to consumers considering supporting the project.  If you're going to solicit funds from a group of folks who are not trained to properly consider your project, e…
  • I have been browsing the Star Citizen website the last few days and even though I'm not that into space-themed games the marketing is very well done. Took solid self control from buying a damn ship to haul some space-rocks ASAP! I really hope for ev…
  • I really do not understand the appeal of mobile games.

  • Slapshot1188 said: That's not what I said. He claimed that the Kickstarter was just for seed money and that he was going after real investors.   To the best of my knowledge that has not happened.   So what?
  • MadFrenchie said: These developers are choosing to forego or supplement those funding attempts by approaching a segment they are well aware they can mislead unlike traditional investors.  This is pure hyperbole regarding the developers in…
  • ConstantineMerus said: Sorry mate if I have missed something here. But the need for additional fund for finishing the product contradicts having a wildly successful crowdfunding campaign hence expanding the product.  I see what you m…
  • Slapshot1188 said: So then you admit they are unilaterally further changing the agreement.  They want to change the promised product and timeline? Fine... but then they should offer their customers the ability to get their money back. …
  • MadFrenchie said: StaalBurgher said: MadFrenchie said: Only, that's the issue in and of itself. There's nothing at all to hold a developer to.  People can talk about personal responsibility all they like, and I agree, but it …
  • Slapshot1188 said: The schedule IS part of the deal though.  If you are delaying delivery by a year plus... you are not meeting your commitment.  One side doesn't get to unilaterally change the deal.  The deal was to deliver X product in Y time…
  • Gdemami said: StaalBurgher said: Perfectly happy to concede that the original timeline was not realistic. The incessant drama about 'competency' is what is ridiculous. It is Kickstarter, don't freak out over the timeline, it is almost guar…
