  • Early Access Games - Glad To See Someone Calling It Like It Is

    I just saw this link on one of the reddit forums for Sota that relates to these early access developers mentality.


    Darkstarr:
    "With all do respect we get to decide how the terms are used, not you."

    This game is a sad mess of cheap and low quality assets with devs that haven't a clue how to make a fun modern mmorpg or rpg for that matter. There are probably thousands of these examples of the free and cheap assets they threw together in this game. I don't have all day so here are just a few. Remember this is the level of quality you get in the entire game. Cheap assets for creatures, texturing, landscape, houses, everything...Then some this stuff they sell back to you in add on store for crazy prices. Honestly, they cant have spent much of the 18 million on the assets that's pretty evident. First we can't forget the horse statue $0 on unity asset store and sold for $25 and $50 in their add on store. https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/52025 These are the laughable creatures you'll encounter in Sota. Skeletons $40 https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/7110 Phoenix $12.49 https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/27909 Wolf $25 https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/44625 Bear $9.99 https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/4982 Spider $15 https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/29330 Scorpion $10 https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/3553 Gaia their terrain builder $45 https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/42618

    If this is true, I just lost the last, tiny shred of respect I may have had left for SotA.  A developer gets on these forums, insults the forums in general, calls specific users trolls because of their views of the game...I just find that hard to believe.  Surely, if this is true and the heads of the studio found out, he would be at the least reprimanded and possibly fired?  Would they allow someone in the wild representing their company like that?
    Aye this is typical behavior from he and I've seen Starr as well, bickering with posters is pretty common. They don't seem to mind them doing it as it's been going on for years now. No idea why they call people trolls and themselves troll as well. If it was just your average poster no one would say anything really but a game companies devs are usually more professional. I think this game is the only one where I've seen this really.

    I'm sure Rune_74 could point you to a ton of Chris's unprofessional posts, I know there's a list somewhere with screenshots of a lot of them out there somewhere but I'm not going to go digging to find them. Here's just a couple.

    Second link doesn't work for me.  Why, oh why did I back these clowns?  It only cost me $50, thank goodness.  Compared to most backers, I got off light.  I know why...pure nostalgia for the greatness that was Lord British in the 80's.  SotA has turned out to be my biggest disappointment in over 30 years of gaming.  I need to learn to let my memories be just that.


    Hmm, it's working for me, here's one of the posts of starr from the second link. Some guy got him going and he really got sarcastic and childish in his response.

    It is incredible! I did it Tariva! As you suggested I did some really honest introspection.

    I did not even realize that for over three years we have been perpetrating an amazing cover up! We have managed to make people think Richard has been working on the project this whole time! We even had our own team fooled, including me! Making videos, generating bugs, making tasks, going to meetings, attending daily standups, posting those standup notes to the forums, doing interviews with press, etc. Lots of work to make it just appear as if he is working on the game instead of actually working on the game.

    That makes so much more sense than the simpler explanation that he is actually working on the game! It is way easier to believe that he's not working on the game at all instead of that sometimes we don't work on the schedule in the exact order he wants due to other priorities.

    Your theory is so much more plausible! Thank you so much for bringing this to light! You are an incredible sleuth! The world is grateful to you for your deductive powers and dedication to spreading the truth.
