This is not going to fail. Period.

wonderfulmonkeyman3651d ago

Yeah. It's too awesome to fail.
Indies are isolating a lot of AAA third parties lately. Anyone else notice that?

This game looks incredible, I love the artstyle. The Kickstarter page has a video that shows gameplay:

https://www.kickstarter.com...

It only needs $12,000 more by June 8th, I think I'm gonna pledge on Friday when I get paid. I love games like this.

This game looks amazing for ANY level of game.

NovusTerminus3651d ago

If it misses it? They will launch it on the PC, then if we'll received they will port it once they get the money...

Spotie3651d ago

Hey don't you use your brain around here.

It sure has had a a hard time getting support since the first few day's on Kickstarter.They have been lucky to get a $1000 or two a day.I plan on getting it if they get the 140k I rely only play games on console's plus only have a Mac rite now.Like LordMe said if it's good It will get a later port.The game look's like it could end up being something special.

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.

JackTheLiz2593d ago

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.

Patriot4Life2593d 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.

JunMei2591d 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.

Patriot4Life2591d 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.

MetroidFREAK212593d ago

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

XanderZane2593d 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.

arkard2593d 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.
