I'd honestly like a horror game outside of the Outlast series.

Forger1581d ago

And he has so many cool ideas about other horrors that he mentions in this interview.

I think Outlast still has things to say.

KyRo1580d ago

I loves outlast. The first game was better with pacing. There were calm times before some chased you. The second game was terrifying because it felt like it you were continuingly getting chased but I don't think it made for a better game.

Outlast is the first and only game horror I decided not to finish due to it's intensity. It was a great game, but man I got so stressed out playing it. I never had the stones to try Outlast 2.

But yet this black hole continues to suck up money like there is no tomorrow. If you're sucking up that much money from fools who get peanuts back. There is something really rotten in that black hole going on.

If only they focus on the Single Player first and releasing it, not interested in the mmo that much.

Same here, always thought we would first do squadron 42 and after that set out into the vast mmo with some experience.

What kind of world would it even be when everything in the game is for sale with real money the moment it launches. There is 0 balance when people can just dump $10000 on some ship the size of a small planet and one shot everything.

I'm seeing numbers that range from 644 million up to 834 million dollars raised for this scam.
Quick, someone give this scam company some more money to prevent these layoffs!

People are literally paying for a company to exist, it's mad. The Devs are more nationalised than the postal service.

Duke1918h ago(Edited 18h ago)

Imagine paying in to a $700M tech demo. If this game ever does release its gonna be a bigger disappointment than starfall. Although with these layoffs I wouldn't be surprised if they canned the project soon anyway

PrinceOfAnger16h ago(Edited 16h ago)

And if the game comes to PS5 you will buy and play it?

Duke1916h ago

IF it ever released and was actually was something paying to play - sure. (Probably PC) But people that continue to dump money into this scam of a project are insane to me. Would get more of a return just lighting that cash on fire

anast15h ago

The game looks fun. I don't have a PC to run to the specs I would like. if it releases on console, I would be all over this game.

badz14915h ago

@PrinceOfAnger

bold of you to assume that it will be released during the PS5's lifecycle. the money keeps coming in, there's just no way they are gonna give that up and release the game.

I got disagreements from my last post saying the CEO was taking pics with fans in a suit made of 100 dollar bills.

After all of the years of them breaking records monetarily with little to show the supporters (myself included about 12 years ago), there should be legitimate class action, civil and criminal lawsuits filed against them.

Andrew33616h ago

For what? It's an early access game that you can play and have been able to play. If people didn't see any value in what it offers they wouldn't be giving their money.

PrinceOfAnger16h ago

Exactly
Some people acting like you get nothing and there is no game many paid only 30/40 $ and said they had fun with it more than released AAA games.

SimpleSlave11h ago(Edited 11h ago)

It's not really an Early Access but a Means to maintain a high standard of living for Roberts and Fam. There's a reason he has allowed feature creeps to be an actual feature in the development of these games. He knows he can do this.

It's what it is but lets stop pretending these are but measly Early Access games that have Oopsie! their deadlines for a Decade. C'mon, bud. Let's be real here.

And if you want to help him with maintaining his Lifestyle then go for it. To each their own. But I think it's fair to say that this thing has gone from just a simple Sunk-Cost Fallacy problem to a straight up Cult-like phenomenon.

With that said, I do hope that those still around live long enough to see an actual release to these games.
Good luck. 👍

I agree. The level of slime they display by having multi-thousand dollar in game purchases without ha ingredients actually released a full game.
