Shiness Kickstarter Backers Revolt Over Broken PS4 & Xbox One Promises

Joanna Mueller writes: "Enigami was attempting to backpedal on their promises. Suddenly backers could only claim one digital console key, regardless of how many copies of the game they’d pledged toward. And this was only available to backers who’d pledged at an unspecified tier."

Sounds like they made a bunch of promises to keep raising money, pretty shady.

Just come out and admit you're a shill for Cliqist alright?

He is also tied with NewNormative both of those sites are owned by the same people. Look at their contributor lists.

Situations like this is why I don't bother with Kickstarter. Say one thing, do another. Sounds like another company who had a game release Sept of 2014 who pulled a similar situation.

Never understood why people give money to someone with just promises...should be a rule in KS that a game or product has to be 30% complete before backing can start.

Also, the person asking to r money cannot ask fr more money until goal and promises are complete.

And how do they afford the development costs if it's already 30% complete?

The fact is, we shouldn't let the shortcomings a few well-publicized instances sour people on the idea of crowd funding.

I would agree with you but its not just a few...this happens more often than you think.

Video games and non-related video game product have made promises only to walk away and give us nothing.

Atleast send them to jail for not giving back the money.

It's a very sad situation and I can understand why people are upset. Mistakes happen.

The game is great.

And that's yet another reason I don't pledge anything on Kickstarter...

XanderZane187d ago

I pledged to 3 games and all 3 games were completed and sent to me. Only game that really didn't live up to it's promises was Mighty #9. It was an average game, but still fun. I haven't backed anything else since.

I've pledged 2. H hour, which I pledged for a ps4 copy and have never received. Also pledged for vita copy of Bloodstained, so far that looks to be going OK.
