Quoted from frolic:
Andrew, you took the bad news announcement from earlier this week and pushed it away by keeping the communication open and continuing to post information and progress on the game.
Just shows that Pinside is not a negative cesspool. There is a reason why pinside can turn on a company and you are showing the right way to handle things.
I posted the above 2 years ago when Dennis Nordman publicly quit Alien. That had the potential of being a huge epic clusterF. For the most part, the past 2 years Andrew has been posting regular updates in this thread, even if it was explaining why something didn't happen when it was supposed to.
Things have kicked up in the past couple of months, but I'd say that is because the narrative was being written by others and no response from Andrew, so silly things like the Porsche blow up.
Maybe Andrew is between a rock and a hard place, but history has shown radio silence on Pinside doesn't help, and we know first hand it can be managed positively as well.
