    Well, I think it isn't quite clear if a scam requires the intention to scam.
    And if it does, if that was the intention all along or just the result of a delusional mind.

    The biggest mystery is why the "developer" tried to uphold the facade as long as he did.
    Granted, there are still a few complete idiots in the KS comments that still believe this will one day exist.
    But there was no monetary incentive to keep on pretending, thus I believe this whole ordeal might simply be the result of madness. How very meta.

    So it basically boils down to this - if he openly admits that he is unable to complete the project he's toast. It only takes a fancy video or a few screenshots twice or thrice a year to keep his ass out of trouble and allow him to keep all that sweet backer money.

    barker_s Considering that MANY KS projects did not fulfill their promises and that none of them have been hit with a large number of refunds - after all, KS doesn't support this in any way, they just say backers can take legal action - I really don't think that is the reason.
    They also are not liable personally, but formed a legal entity in all likelyhood. So even if they got sued, they can say "all the money is gone, sorry!" and backers wouldn't gain anything.
    You also have to consider that 90% of backers have probably forgotten entirely about it to begin with :lol:

    Suing or refunding early after a campaign is somewhat realistic, but for this project we're years past that point.

    Any one here knows how if there is a way to win with an orc horde? It's almost imposible to control after a few turns and also if it grows to much it leaves too many clues and the heroes discover immediately my existence.... they should patch that =(

    Which alpha are you using? In the recent ones bogs and fens have decent concealment scores (swamps too, but if you get a disease outbreak it can really mess up your horde). If you've corrupted the woodland elves, olde forest is even better.

    My computer doesn't allow me to watch the weekly videos, how many have there been after the March one?
    Can anyone describe what happened in the other videos?

    I swear the only reason people still post here is so I can get a notification to remind me of my unwise financial investments and broken dreams. :argh:

    One part of my innocent heart still wish for that game to be released...

    Of the course the guy probably spent everything on hookers

    Is anyone else having problems with the game when you have weakened the seals enough to bring your physical avatar on the plane? I keep crashing with the latest nightly build no matter what. Sometimes one turn earlier, sometimes a turn later.

    You need to force your tentacles through the fragrant door. Have your champion consume the Sacred Pint of Oorea for maximum potential blessing but (never) remember to deal with the fount of Hopw first.

    Is that a different one than the Fountain Of Torn that I found on a western island? Or are the fountains (and their names) random?

    Fountain names along with abyss portals and moon doors vary according to the direction the first contact ritual is directed towards. Be sure to have a cultist with enochian knowledge skill at master before you conduct it.

    I figured out why the game kept crashing on me. The physical ascend of Proctalgia should be a game over (or victory condition, depending on how you look at things) at this stage of the game.

    Since I corrupted the paladin of Cylaria with my tentacle beasts, she is now my undercover agent. I wiped out all the other candidates for the Chosen One already. But since the AI has not actually uncovered the paladin, it still considers that there is a candidate remaining in the game and won't spawn more. Apparently the game over condition does not trigger properly since it is relying the same checks, resulting in a crash.

    That's the old version, in the updated .exe that's been patched.
