    I have been. The Myth forums and Bungie community outside of Bungie.net is pretty dead, though.

    The more I view that retardo project, the more annoyed I get. RPGCodex funding effort to raise 3.50 anyone?

    Looks like Haunts: The Manse Macabre is in a spot of trouble.

    Read more here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2066438441/haunts-the-manse-macabre/posts/331425?ref=activity

    Big shame, though this is one of those unforeseen circumstances that occurs in the development process, rather than reckless expenditure on retarded shit. Good thing I only pledged $5, but I hope they pull through this mess nonetheless.

    :roll: I think for these small projects, the project lead MUST be a programmer himself. It's too risky to rely on anybody else.

    Yes, ooga, Renwood (Vindicator on the Tain), and to a lesser extent Road, are pretty well known to be shysters. What is baffling is that they would use their same handles after all the drama they've been through. I think they were hoping not to draw the attention of the dedicated community and instead draw on the larger Myth fan mass to get funded i.e. people that wouldn't know any better. Don't know why they picked having like 15 day funding other than that they wanted this over with quickly and hoped they could get the 450K and run

    They should have used IndieGoGo for their scamming needs :lol:

    In any case, Take 2 has apparently been informed.

    Yeah, and Haunts looked pretty damn interesting and the art-style is unique. At least project leader is offering to pay back the donations, so he seems like a decent fella.

    Also, from what I read, the game is written in Go, which is the biggest reason why he doesnt have somebody else lined up for this; nobody uses that shit, ever. Wrong decision in the first place, but I imagine that was also done by the retardo programmer.

    Oh fucking great, here we go again.
    There's been so much incline lately I'm about to hit my head against the ceiling.

    Black Space failed, but Strike Suit Zero might deliver.

    God damn Kickstarter will make me broke. In a few hours i spent 50 dollars for Strike Suit Zero and Chris Robert's Star Citizen (I couldn't resist any longer to the latter). I'm out of my mind. I spend a lot of money on games that I can not play for 2 years. But I don't care, I'd rather spent on these and support the incline than suck up to the decline of today's mainstream games. Man, this is the start of the next golden age of PC gaming. Feels good man.

    Yeah but what the hell does this mean in the $50 reward tier?

    So people who pledge less than $50 don't get the full game? Fuck them.

    Shaker epilogue update
    In other words, they could have raised the missing 70 percent of cash if they wanted to. More news at eleven.

    What's suppose to be so great about this? It looks like it has overdone effects. Expect lame TRON contrails.
