In Topic: Somethings coming and here is a preview

I know people are restless and just passing the time in different way here but I want to just make a general statement about getting stuff.....

To be blunt we don't owe anyone anything. We love having people talking here but if there isn't enough going on or things don't happen on your time table then go do something else for a while.

When we take your money and promise a patch or update and take a while then you can call us out and get antsy about it all. Until then though thing happen as best we can make them happen. I spent Sunday in an emergency room and have been traveling for work since Tuesday. So you know, things happen. But until we take your money just sit back and relax or go do something else for a while. :)

yeah... we released a build to a test group and as expected they found all sorts of problems. We are addressing them and progressing  closer to a solid public release. ;)

I don't know mate. No one forced them to sign with 505 or any publisher for that matter. The only positive outcome was that the game was cheap. If it had been full retail or say, $29, the uproar would've been far, far worse than it was. At the end of the day though, it was a budget-bin game for a budget-bin price.

Agreed.

I have just been on that side of the fence, and still am really, so I have both perspectives. I am in no way defending Takedown the game or the development process, but just defending the person, Christian, and that he is not a bad person or out to F' people over is all.

It had to have become clear during some point in the development cycle that they weren't going to acheive what they set out to. They should've delayed release and sought funding elsewhere, be it SBL's, EA or the like and have produced a more polished and functional product. Instead, they gave their game a half-hearted treatment, pushed it out the door and said Mission Accomplished. You can make a bad game. It happens all the time. But your first game, your very first one, it has to be good else you set a terrible precedent for any future projects you might undertake and tarnish your reputation. Which is exactly what happened here.

I take anything these guys say now with a extreme grain of salt.

I agree 100%.

My point still stands though, Christian is guilty of bad planning and execution decisions but is not a shyster with a purpose of stealing from anyone. He did not set out with a plan to knowingly deceive people.

It's not lost on me, I'm just not a sucker.

Christian is a shyster. I work hard for my money and I admit when I messed up. Maybe one day he'll learn the art of humility. When he does I may support him.

People can feel how they want about how they were treated, but one thing Christian is not is a shyster. Misguided in his plan maybe, but he most definitely DID NOT set out to deceive anyone.
