    I'm shocked at the kind of autism that would allow someone to develop such a complete RPG and yet berefit of the ability to get a page on itch.io

    Intelligence and experience are not valued, unfortunately.

    Most people only learn from their own mistakes, i guess if he manages to survive out of roots and rain water, he'll do much better for KotC 2.

    Let's just hope KotC 2 will be at least as good as the first.

    I mean, I'm leaving aside the 80% of the Codex that played Fallout 4 instead, and the 10% that pirated KOTC like a giant dick.

    I cannot trust just anyone with my money, you know.

    I believe I have secured the loyalty and trust of captain Phillip Smith aboard the trade ship Dundee Castle. They are making the trip to Boston Harbor next month, due arrival in the upcoming 6 to 8 weeks. Does anyone know a trustworthy mail service that can move my war chest so that our fellow Begue may secure this transfer?

    Much obliged.

    The guy is clearly intelligent and talented - it is no small feat putting together a game like that. But like many people with these talents, they are afflicted with many other extreme personality traits that sabotage all progress and personal happiness.

    It really is a constant battle with these people, and when they lose, they might have lost for good. I doubt he has to eat roots alone, but something is driving him to these extremes.

    There's some welfare for european immigrants , if a french move to bulgaria he still can ask the french consulate service (CCPAS).Every codexers should be more informed into his wellfare rights ;) .
    I dont know pierre's situation but there's several cases he could get some, even a case of disability. Unfortunately i dont think autism count as disability...
    Sad the guy did not listen to us years ago , made a generic rts and alienate the already small customer base he had.Also yes like felipepe said even if GOG are thugs taking 35% , that's 10 years of sales he just lost.

    It's kind of a tragic tale. It appears he has the intelligence, knowledge and drive, but doesn't seem to have the ability or is smart enough to wield any of it effectively. So he is basically just self-sabotaging himself over and over.

    He min-maxed his game developer stats to be a 10/10 designer and -500/10 promoter.

    I missed all the drama and just went to gog and steam to look for it.
    Guess I have to buy from his website, the last games I bought from developer's site are The Unreal World & Eschalon: Book I.
    I bought them more than 10 years ago and these games are now on Steam, Eschalon is on gog as well.
    :hmmm:

  12. Hopefully I'll be able to buy KOTC soon.
    After all, this is my favourite game, along with TOEE and Dark Sun.

    Sami was also smart enough to drop the price of Unreal World heavily.

    Saying that, KOTC isn't unreasonably priced.

    More and more proof piling up that you need to be knee-deep in the Spectrum in order to produce quality RPGs; anything less ends in Deadfire.

    I remember being hella sceptical about the maptools look of the game with the tokens and all (by which I mean it looked like ass) when I saw it for the first time, but with the added effects and stuff it's actually starting to look decent.

    I'd still rather have it look like the first game, but so it goes.

    December KS is perhaps one of the riskier times to have to launch one---even November is somewhat pushing it given holiday rush concerns. Seems there's no helping it though, so all we can do is hope.

    I'm starting to warm up to this more than the first game, look-wise. I'm thinking there're are more possibilities for gameplay-implementation when you can make assets so far. I wasn't the biggest fan of the first game's artstyle anyway.

    Game looks really cool on these latest shots.

    EDIT: Just the amount of creatures on the shot above looks like fun.
