Re: The Visual Novel

At this point my hopes for the VN are basically nil. I would LOVE to be proven wrong, of course. My biggest concern atm is either getting a FULL refund, or having my physical rewards shipped out as close to immediately as possible. I'm sick and tired of waiting. I'm done with wondering. Do one or t...

Re: The Visual Novel

Does this timeline still look like a 'deliberate overpromise occured' to you ? Yes because it clearly indicates there was health problems before the kickstarter ever started. After nearly five years they are not even close to completing the base game of two characters 4 - 6 hours each per character...

Re: The Visual Novel

Perhaps the timeline needs refreshment ... ? 2013 28 of Feb : under [1355] he mentioned Sarah's health and some of his; 10 of March : heart catheterization rant / the procedure (rant under [1357]); 4 of April : rant under [1358] after the procedure, some links there explain some more of the history...

Re: The Visual Novel

I have to wonder what Paarfi meant exactly when he said that and why he felt the plug should be pulled vs. trying a different approach. Ok, it's a fair question. Fred has said that he's looking at making changes to the current approach by simplifying the artwork resources needed. Let me describe a ...

Re: The Visual Novel

I am a huge Megatokyo fan. I throw money to Fred whenever possible. I have all the books, and I watch his live streams whenever I can. I'm sorry. Thank you so much for supporting Fred. If it weren't for folks like you, Megatokyo would have ended years ago. You really do make a difference for all of...

Re: The Visual Novel

Nobody owes anything to anyone here. For those of you who contributed expecting that something will get done, it would appear that you forget the first rule of investments: Nothing is guaranteed. It's always a crap shoot. I won't shout at God if I put in $30 for some lottery tickets and all I get b...

Re: The Visual Novel

For the MT VN, even though I don't agree with the conclusion (I like Fred's decision better) I think paarfi's personal opinion from earlier bears repeating, as it seems to cover a number of related issues: " I manage a software team in real life, and if this were my project and my business, I'd hav...

Re: The Visual Novel

The initial schedule and scope always seemed too aggressive. Passionate and detailed artist with little that can be well-delegated even if familiar with such things, from a non-game company ('not even indie'). From some people starting from scratch and mostly winging it. What has been done over the...

I see you don't know what you're talking about.
Go read and search, come back when you do know what you are talking about.
This letter is friendly.
Please be less cryptic about this, I can guess at what you're referencing here, but it's not inherently obvious.

Re: The Visual Novel

Your cynicism is misguided . Not misguided. For nearly five years the backers of this kickstarter have waited for something anything to show for the money that has been given to Fred. For nearly five years we heard a lot of excuses. After five years I find it troubling that there is only about an h...

Re: The Visual Novel

This was more about the way the VN will probably be released than than it has to do with the idea of anything being 'canceled'. We lost our primary developer in the fall of last year and we have had to re-assess much of what we've been doing so far with the design and feel of the VN. This loss had ...

Re: Haven't received VN after supporting, what to do?

necro but there are probably many of us "beta testers" and above bottom teir backers still hanging on here and just kinda reading the updates as they come. although i can't say i remember how long ago the kickstarter began. It's been four and a half years and nearly $300,000 and there's nothing to ...
