I have no problem with crowed funding BUT:
BUT Visionary Realms took PEOPLES MONEY WAY TOO SOON !
People are saying this game is taking too long. No it's about standard, problem is they began collecting money at the "simple thought of making a game". They created a bloated out news letter and a cartoon map made on a bar napkin and gave the appearance the game is half done.
Prof none... Why no prof ?... Masterful appearance !!!!
I was in voice discord with a great bunch of people playing Legends of Aria about a year ago. They were all fans and backers of Pantheon. They had nothing to follow other than a news letter..... They were convinced the game was a few months away from being released... This was last year !
This is the power of appearance,
It can trick the hopeful unsuspecting good people.... I sometimes hate being a realist. I see everything as how they are.
I often ask what is Pantheon ?..... Honestly I don't think anyone knows.
