Re: So, will it be ever delivered?

Hey, since we're quickly approaching 1 year since the last official update- From the comments section: Hello, You might not read this along with my past posts. But i don't know how else i am able to communicate with you. It's been 5 years (6th since its June) since i found out about this project. I ...

Re: So, will it be ever delivered?

Most of what I've been wanting is a viable strategy to complete the game. It looks like that is incoming. I would also like to see a comprehensive breakdown of costs from Fred, but that's more other peoples' deal than mine.

Re: So, will it be ever delivered?

I emailed Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool. He might be doing a write up about scam Kickstarters as he was asking people for information on similar undelivered projects. I reached out using the contact page bleedingcool.com/contact/ If you could contact too that would be great! Hopefully this story g...

Totally reporting him too. May be reaching out to CBR and/or Bleeding Cool in hopes of them running a story on this mess.
I've seen writeups on bad kickstarters occasionally from different places, but I'm not sure where the best place to go to would be or even how you'd ask. Thoughts?

Re: So, will it be ever delivered?

Note: I'm not a backer of this project. I tried searching the new and the archived forum by the keywords recruit AND developer. I could not find threads. How about recruiting new developer(s) for the project? From what I understand by reading the forums and kickstarter, the major pain points are Fr...

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

I doubt anyone will be getting anything. Lots of empty promises. So many other webcomic people, and people that do monthly comic do 80 times the work that Fred does without falling behind and offering up empty excuses. Ok, granted I don't know how long you may have been lurking anonymously before r...

Re: So, will it be ever delivered?

Folks, he's doing what he can. He has the comic moving well, and much of the rest of his time right now is being spent on fixing the store backlog. Unfortunately, that's taking longer than he had expected. But once that's done, he expects to have more time to spend on the vn again. If you look at h...

Re: So, will it be ever delivered?

PAARFI. NO ONE CARES ABOUT THE SLOW ANIMATION PART OF THIS. NO ONE CARES ABOUT WHETHER DIALOGUE IS IN SPEECH BUBBLES. NO ONE. It's a stupid tangent that has thrown the project completely off the rails of what it was supposed to be. This was supposed to be a visual novel. 1. At this point since he wa...

Re: So, will it be ever delivered?

Paarfi, the last official update was in July of last year. There have been comments on the kickstarter page by Fred and forum posts buried offsite, but communication has been terrible throughout this mess. There hasn't been an official update on what went wrong or a cost breakdown on where the money...

Re: So, will it be ever delivered?

They could have switched strategies awhile ago (or they still could today!) and release the game as an actual visual novel instead of an animation, but Fred won't do that. So...basically he's intentionally not going to release the game in favor of something that will happen ~*~*~*~in the future~*~*~...

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

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...

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...

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 ...
