What if this was all just a psychological experiment. We know Caspian has a degree in psychology. What if he has actually been running an experiment to see how far people can be deluded by increasingly ambitious promises and progressively failed deliverables?
Seriously. Think about it. He raised $8M by showing worse and worse stuff to the public. Look at what was shown in the Kickstarter and look at what was shown since then. Remember the cut and photoshopped “mood piece”? Well he raised tens of thousands of dollars since then. Remember the ridiculous dungeon shown recently and compare it to the Silvermine video from years ago. It shows backward progression but they raised hundreds of thousands of dollars since then. He has even had people lined up to spend thousands of dollars on this last land grab despite numerous false starts, delays and data variances to what they showed months back. How about that low res parkour demo. What a shit show right? Well they still raised thousands since they showed it.
So I don’t know what the real story is, but what if this was all just a psychology experiment? As bizarre as it sounds, the pieces actually fit. I mean, he even left the Discord and Forums up to record the final reactions.
Think about it.

Starvault's reponse to criticism related to having a handful of players as the official "test" team for a supposed MMO: "We've just have another 10ish folk kind enough to voulenteer added tot the test team" (SIC) This explains much about the state of the game :-)
