Come on. Think!!
In case you havent realised yet. We backed on Kickstarter, or Indiegogo, not Twitter.
Every backer will have a KS or Indiegogo account, not every backer will have an account here or on Twitter. Putting messages on Twitter alone is pointless, it doesn’t reach paid backers, and you have character limits. If the devs can tweet they can update.
So the devs ignore Kickstarter backers, but somehow that is my fault. Get a grip.
Have you bothered to check the message stream on Kickstarter. The message stream that only PAID BACKERS can access. In other words people who have paid for this project and morally ought to be kept informed of what is being done with their monies.
Here are some of the most recent comments:
“Is the game dead ?”
“I really don’t know. No informations/updates! Scam?”
“It’s really bad. We supported him/them and now we earn absolute no informations about the development. I think I will never back products of them again.”
“No time for us, no updates and no comments. I only hope we will get our game.”
"I was afraid of something like this… Luckily I only sunk 25 euros into this project.
@creator - the least you could do is create a 5-10 line script/bot that cross posts updates from your forum into this Kickstarter project. Takes max an hour to write and test.
Is that really too much to ask?"
None of the above quotes were comments by me.
We have backers who paid their money for this game who are genuinely worried that the devs have cut and run. It does happen with crowdfund projects every now and then. I myself have lost money on only one project, but it is a real worry for many.
This is not the time for your myopic and selfish attitudes. Just because you can read Twitter and because you have forum membership here and are content doesn’t mean every person who has paid money for the game knows what you know. The backers are asking for an update, and if you want to whine and say that ts a ‘vocal minority’ then you are being utterly self centred and unreasonable.
And stop blaming me for this problem.
