Caspien teases "other forms of revenue and investments for the studio"

There's been a lot of changes the last two months. A ton of new hires and more to come. There's also a lot happening on the development side. I've got some business development stuff I may consider doing that I've only been toying with, and looking at other forms of revenue and investments for the studio, but nothing concrete yet. Some of these plans need some more bake time. Some need advice from my advisory board. Some just rely on the completion of a specific internal milestone before I can move the plans forward.

So I guess he is admitting that the Lootboxes were a failure on multiple levels...
If only he could produce an actual product that people could play... then he wouldn't need alternate forms of revenue. I mean he said he could produce a full and complete game, with all bells whistles and testing by Dec 2017 for let's call it $4M.  It's now 2020 and he has raised double that amount of money.   He doesn't have a revenue problem he has a management and planning problem.


PS: Love the whole "advisory board" concept. Dude has like 20 people and his revenue stream is donations but he needs an "advisory board"?  Well, if they have been advising him thus far, I think he needs a new board.

    Perhaps it's already happening...

    Did you forget to include the quote where he feels the ”lootboxes” didn’t meet his expectations or is that how you interpret this comment?

    Here's an idea on how to generate revenue. Make an actual fucking game.

    He teased on discord several months back about meeting people for funding. Clearly didn't go well, since it was never brought up again.

    They probably didn’t like his Gantt charts
