I believe Skit-b to be completely sincere in their quest to produce Predator but understaffed, likely underfunded (under charging), lacking critical expertise in key areas and never changed how they do business from their earliest beginnings to now being a million dollar biz (250 x $5000).

Till everyone gets their games this is going to be a bumpy ride.

I hope this rumor can be put to rest real quick. If there is something up, this has been going on for a long time, that website without Predator has been that way a while.

It never made sense to me that even with the game "sold out" you don't say shit about it on your own site?

#198 5 years ago

No one has stated anything unequivocally, just asking questions and pointing to suspicious things.

This is ridiculous that this thread has gone on as long as it has. There are real people that have spoken up waiting for refunds and like it or not this game was possible Because of the support of Pinside. So to go silent now is beyond bad business.

Quoted from Aurich:

It's weird, I heard the "SkitB doesn't have the license" rumor at least a year ago if not more.

I remember hearing that a long time ago as well. As time went on and the game progressed, those rumors seemed ridiculous. Now, I don't know.

Because there was some intent shown by removing the game from the website, facebook, twitter and youtube, there is definitely far more going on than we know of and its been going on for a while.

Quoted from Whysnow:

I agree that they need to communicate but see no need for them to do it publically.

It'll be really rich if they turn their back on Pinside, but then reappear when its time to look for money for game 2.

Quoted from Jared:

Of course, this is just me thinking out loud here and perhaps should be taken with a grain of salt. If it cost farsight $60k, why would it not cost Skit-B $120k... or more?

The crazy thing is, whatever amount of money Fox needs for this license is well worth it. No other boutique has sales anywhere close to 250. The license is what carried this game.

Quoted from RyThom:

I've been following the project since it appeared at MPE years ago, and I could be wrong, but I don't remember a similar back-and-forth process with the studio concerning Predator art.

The only back and forth was with us.

Quoted from Kcpinballfan:

I received an email from Kevin and for the record he has always responded pretty quickly to me.

Maybe you can ask him to respond to the OP?

Quoted from lowepg:

My opinion is "scam" is the wrong word.

Depending on how this goes and how close some of the things said in this thread are.... Clusterf__k might be a better word.

Can the oP at least get his refund?

OP got his refund, but the whole can of worms that followed was never addressed. I guess time will tell. Good luck to everyone else with money in on this.
