I have been in on RAZA CT#11 from the first week.

About six months ago I spoke with John about getting on the magic girl waiting list. He told me no problem, and guaranteed me a magic girl, but refused my offer to take any deposit money.

I viewed that is a very good sign because if he were only out to take deposit money, and never deliver a game he would have taken the money on the spot.

I am super impressed with what I have seen on both pins. Hope he is able to execute his announced reveals on time.

Quoted from ChadH:

There have been several references to Dec 17th (tomorrow) being the date of the big MG reveal. When did John say this and who did he say it to? Or is this just hearsay? Has there been any evidence that this is still the case?

I was wondering the same thing. I think someone mentioned he had posted that date on the MG blog, I did not see it there. I was looking forward to the 17th date, but have no idea where that date came from.

Just found a photo of three nicely populated MG p/f's on the artist's instagram.

Quoted from s1500:

Is it me, or did that one video from adobe.com reveal more than anything we've ever seen/discussed on this thread at all?

Not only in this thread, but surpassed the info. provided on the blog.

I believe that Jpop is slowly progressing toward a finished proto of both MG and RAZA. It is frustrating to see glimpses of such amazing artistry/engineering both publicly and privately, but knowing realistically that only a joint venture for manufacturing will lead to actual games being shipped. I don't know if Zidware is capable of creating that relationship. Remember back to the initial announcement of Ben Heck Zombie Adventure Land? There was a $1,000 option to have John and Ben come to your house and help assemble the game.

I often wonder if John has read this thread. It was a disappointment for me to read that he viewed the private blog as more of a one way communication system. I got the impression that the blog is now viewed as a favor to the owners. In the earlier going he was active, accepting owner suggestions and feedback.

I hope he pulls through with an impressive reveal in January as expected. I have recently felt more like a "Hopeful" than an "Owner".

I am a supporter with my payments current, but like many others cannot justify investing more. It is well past the time for some clear evidence of urgency on John's part.

I just posted to the blog;

John, I am going to echo the last several posts here.

The journey was a big part of the apeal to me. I now find myself frusterated reading the massive negative posts on Pinside. I'm even more disappointed with your non-responsiveness to owner's questions on this blog. I have read that no one can leave you a message, full voice mail, that you do not answer calls or return e-mails. What would you expect your customers to think? If it is not obvious many owners are beyond frusterated.

You should not count on a big reveal to result in a forgive and forget attitude among the owners. Production is a major concern. Communication from you about the status would be a step in the right direction. Just answer the very polite questions asked of you on this blog.
Respecfully, John

Quoted from Fliptastic:

With 180+ posts since I last checked this thread, I thought I might see some progress pics or an update of some sort. Unfortunately, the only pics were of people's dinners.

Agreed, but we are trending optimistic, as compared to the 4,000 + posts prior.

Great news that he picked up the phone! Was worried he was going underground. Thanks for all your efforts with him.

Too bad that this whole experience is, "over and over same song."

#5308 4 years ago

I don't think he will ever change. He has zero sense of urgency or any willingness to accept help.
Really too bad.

If anyone else was the president of Zidware they would have figured out by now their customers are beyond frustrated, angry, and feel lied to. I don't think Jpop has that sense.

I thought I recalled seeing a post on Jpop's Facebook around the time all the pre order money was flowing in of him in a new Tesla he had just purchased.
