Quoted from tktlwyr:
Good for you! Every time is passed by it at the TPF, it was off and being serviced.
I don't think it's irrelevant at all. Didn't they take a deposit? What's the difference between taking a deposit or requesting people participate in a kickstarter? Either way, it's money out of someone's pocket for something that isn't assembled yet. I'll be impressed when I see games shipped.
A deposit to hold a spot, ex. $250, still allows you to back out AND their game was what, $4000, or 4500? VD wants 7-8k?! No deposit to wait and see, just full payment or else. No good bonus from KS the campaign to buy a real game, sight unseen for any part of the machine, except some concept art? F THAT S.
I agree to wait to see the game shipped to be impressed, specially on a new comer, hence the reluctance to KS the idea...especially with no actual game, game play, pics, parts, looks, etc.
