As most of you know, Jeromy "Caspian" Walsh, founder and CEO of Soulbound Studios LLC recently closed shop with nothing to show after 5 years and 8 millions+ in crowdfunding, blaming pretty much everyone but himself.https://chroniclesofelyria.com/news/34919/State-of-Elyria-Into-the-Abyss
This happened mere DAYS after that "pre-alpha experience" was launched. It was really close to something a junior could have slapped together using (mostly free) store assets in UE4. Plus a bunch of security issues.
Jeromy says they ran out of money, yet in the 6 months prior to closure, they grossed in $1.6 millions+ USD, including $66k USD in March 2020 alone. They were also still marketing and pushing their latest website promo for virtual lands and nobility titles in the weeks and days before closing abruptly.
It's litterally a slap in the face of all the backers, and most probably of all employees who were blindsided, after so long and so much effort.
