    Well at least the 40k will get them by for a while and we might see another ks from them in the future.

    Well, fuck, only just found out about this being a con. Thought I'd actually check up on my list of kickstarters, because a lot of them were drunken impulse backs and I have no idea where many of them are at (I've been living under a rock).

    The truck says "ConEx". The cliche that criminals leave small clues to their guilt is proven correct yet again.

    Perhaps Putin is not so wrong after all.

    What good except Krimskoye did ever come from Ukraine. Oh wait.

    It sure is something when the most bizarre part of the update was that the initial early core is, of all things, macOS only.

    Ride on 2017, what rules we thought to be were ultimately more like suggestions.

    macOS only makes sense. They probably built the game on their sweet iPhones they got from the scam money.

    Yes, and also were involved in some kind of home rental scam where they used anti-eviction laws to squat in someone VRBO property.

    But then there was Grimoire, so anything is possible.

    That e-mail was yesterday's WTF moment. It might be that this time they will actually have something to release, but considering how things went with the Kickstarter project, I wouldn't hold my breath.

    They already have my money from back then. Maybe if the game ends up being released on Steam and a couple of months pass without anyone complaining about ransomware I'll give it a try, but believing that this is not yet another scam requires too much effort from me.

    Wonder if they'll manage to milk some early access money from it. With pissed backers in the review section probably not, but who knows, I wish they'll try.

    How about someone describing their con operation history in a review and people bumping the review on the top spot ?
    Would they manage to take it down by claiming harassment ? Should be entertaining.

    Windows preview is out. I'd consider installing it in a VM, but I can't be arsed. Maybe when I'm on vacation.

    There should be a thread where people can tell each other how much money they wasted on kickstarter games that went nowhere.
