Quoted from Grantman:
There is no excuse for poor communication. If there is nothing shady going on then why not just talk to your customers and explain what's going on? This whole "pay us in full and we'll deliver your order at some unknown point in the future" would be unacceptable in any other business so why is it acceptable here?
Pretty simple. But everyone still pretending in wonderland, so I guess they can't Really say the Actual reason for half of Australias businesses dematerialising, and being replaced with technocorp or other 'services'. Or why they're (most probably) extremely cash strapped like every other business after all the bulls#it and destruction that's occuuring.
My invoice is outstanding, sad to say. I have to sell a game for the funds (which was always the plan). I have Never been unable to sell a game before, but when your Tweaked OG Heighway Alien won't sell for what's basically us$8K and sits there for sale for months, thousands of people viewed the ads, and have to take the ad down with barely even an enquiry a month later. . . there is a cash/economy problem houston!
There is a massive white elephant plague going on. Ironic how the people do not see it . . . the elephant in the room is White, and it's Big!! lol
I support Haggis, and I know they're for real.. With emails, half the worlds people are being given the runaround by the 'Internet Messaging' systems, whatever they have done, updates changes and whatever. My sattelite 'NBN' hardly cuts the mustard for the usability now, and then there's the fake spam, and spam that gets to the inbox. It's become Absurd.
Anyway Angela did call me on the phone about my Mermaid only a couple of days ago. This came to pass because of the Email problems (which are/were mostly at my end with Losing mail from an email account which I ordered the game with), and because the Outstanding invoice (where the reply was just going to be Paying It; tomorrow when I sell the game, right). I've been trying to sell a couple of games to pay, for months it has been waiting to be paid.
I let her know in our call that I'm working on it, and apologised for the situation. But I am sure we were both well aware of the economic situation, the shhhhh topics as well.
What any would-be keyboard bashers need to realise it that Fathom Mermaid by the end will probably have cost them as much to Make and ship, as what they recieved from buyers, without profit, and that's optimistic I reckon, the way prices rose & are still rising. For EVERYTHING. The Longer It Takes Them to finish the More THEY Lose out by inflation in costs of materials and sevices. They would be Cash Poor, and trying to Stay above waterline right now, and yes I feel bad that I haven't covered the invoice. I will get it to them soon. But it is what it is okay, the convid depression and bganksters wars. Goin' down!. Strap yourselves in powder puffs, it's going to get bumpy, for most people it will be bumpy by surprise.
My hopes is, and I believe, that Haggis will make it through. Scottish ancestry
