    This doesn't seem suspicious at all.

    "Porenferser" ... i see what you did there ... but wouldn't "Pubeljerser" be more appropriate in this case ?

    seeing how this is made by somebody proficient at animation and not at game design, good luck... but no purchase

    It seems that the funding for this project is in danger. 43.462€ raised of 45.000€ Goal and there are only 57 hours to go.

    Having over two days to raise 3.3% of its goal is "in danger" to you? The chances of it not making it now are infinitesimal.

    Environments look great, clearly a lot of passion went into visual design, but, like Guild Wars 2, the game appears to be made for furries.

    Indiegogo is not like Kickstarter, you don't need to meet the goal to get the money.
    EDIT:
    Or I thought, I pretty much think I saw campaigns that didn't need it, I check it again.

    EDIT2:
    So they chose fixed.

    It's one man show. A single animator with 15+ years of experience.

    :lol: At this point I really don't see how having a background in game design means anything in this industry anymore. AAA churns out lots of turds that people lap up all the time and they have tons of designers to make retarded decisions up till release. Doesn't surprise me that the Codex is filled with cynics if the current stock in the industry has a background in "game design".

    when i look at this project, i see pretty screenshots, but i expect a horribly unoptimized mess with little player input trying to be a cinematic(tm) experience(r)

    it's the interactivity aspect i expect from a game designer, but not from an animator, which makes me be suspicious here

    I have seen the same problems you described from pub's that actually employ dozens if not hundreds of designers and so at this point I think a trained monkey can do game design. Hell some of the members on the codex actually understand the concept of game design better in comparison to the vets and the only difference is the technical side which anyone can learn. I mean you can't explain Ryze away and the brilliant minds that thought up that game :lol:. Hell Levine doesn't have any game design background and it was mostly writing and so he came up with Infinite which many people jerk off too.

    So in a nut shell you, me, or anyone can do game design if we look inside the septic tank of the VG industry and what comes out of it.

    edit* forgot to add that I would have agreed with you a decade ago and I am sure someone on the codex will disagree with me on this point as well

    Now try to imagine how this game would had it been developped by a full team of 2 people and a real budget of 100 000$.
