Is that pronounced how it's spelled?

GamingSinceThe80s3708d ago

Shyness is how they pronounce it.You should watch their kickstarter trailer for the game it look's quite good,and far along already.

Nintendo should donate the rest of the money to them. My goodness if Nintendo wants to be prosperous again they need to support 3rd parties. If I were them I would browse kickstarter daily for stuff to help fund.

Come to think of it MS and Sony should do the same.

GamingSinceThe80s3708d ago

I have been following this closely and in the first few day's they got the lion's share of their money like 60k of it.Ever since it has been slow going to get to the current 80k.They need 140k to put it on PS4.But have not said how much more for the Wii U yet.I plan on getting on board if they at least hit the PS4 goal.But even with having until the June8th I don't know if they will make it at this rate.Maybe if they at least get's the 100k it need's to get funded and it turn's out to be something great they will have the money to port it to consoles sometime down the road anyway.It does look very promising.

this is good news. i asked whoever runs their youtube channel the other day if it was coming to wiiu and he said they had to reach the ps4 goal first but im glad to see its likely coming to wiiU.

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."

garyanderson2644d ago

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

JackTheLiz2644d ago

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

annoyedgamer2644d ago (Edited 2644d ago )

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.

Patriot4Life2644d ago

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.

JunMei2642d ago

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.

Patriot4Life2642d ago

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.

MetroidFREAK212644d ago

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

XanderZane2643d 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.

arkard2643d ago

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.
