    Both the Steam boards and their own forums have pretty much been abandoned, and I reckon Discord as well. These people should have at least the decency to provide a minumum amount of info regarding the current status. Their hundreds of backers deserve to know what's going on.

    If they still haven't realized what's going on, they deserve nothing. You need at least a single brain cell to be considered a human being.

    This game is cursed, people just need to let it go.

    The GOG trailer ends with a hilarious "Release: early 2020". You know why it's hilarious? It was posted in August 2020. They aren't even trying anymore.

    They're regularly on discord actually, but they just keep saying they're part timing and working other jobs until they get more funding.

    In other words, thursday.

    They need to be held accountable for that state aid they received. Germany could have used that money to import more quality citizens instead.

    Actually, to make up for the jarl* incident, they donated all that money to NGOs that work towards true social justice. That is why they are part timing now.

    Goddammit man, I put so much (relatively speaking) money into this. I wonder where it all went.

    Yup, have you even tried to visit their Discord? Nowadays most devs post on Discord and then Steam forums. There's quite a drama going on today over there. It promises to maybe even be on Wayward Realms lvl, even has some kind of soft managerial coup element and saying FU to gud business deals. Why is every RPG with "Realms" in its name cursed?

    There's more to it, pretty much what The Wall said.

    Some backers will be emailing one of the Ceres owners to demand an update.

    Damn shame.

    [UPDATE] Last time Devs heared from their de facto CEO, who said NO! in last min. to gud business deal, was over 6-8 months ago. Fate of gud portion of 100k € government subsidy is unknown. Kickstarter money burned

    L-MAO!

    Yeah, if they have nothing more to show for next year, let's invade the dev's homes and piss on their rugs!

    There should always, ALWAYS be only one decision maker, unless you have a strong and working procedure for collective decision making which I doubt could be the case with such small business companies. Still hoping for best, though can’t see it’ll depart anywhere soon.

    Not bad. I was going to propose the Jimmy the Gent - Morrie scene from Goodfellas, but I think what happened in the TBL is more spectacular.

    I don't use Discord tbh. The Steam boards and their own forums are one of the main visible facets of their business, more visible than their Discord channel. Totally ignoring those places says a lot about their attitude towards their customers. I have no idea if the Stellar Tactics dev uses a Discord channel or not, but he's ever-present on the Steam boards, keeping in touch with the people who bought his early acces release. That's called respect.

    Well, I'd say the situation is critical (to say the least) when one of the main devs says they are still fucked up until further notice.

    So after months they still have no money, no team and only the vague promise that someone, someday might give lots of money. Yet the Thread title still hasn't been changed to "Realms Beyond: Ashes of the Fallen now dead and abandoned"

    I agree. Recently I was thinking that early access wouldn't happen before 2022, but I was confident they would get this thing done. Not anymore. I'd say this project is teetering on the edge. The covid situation has surely made things much harder.

    It's because it was already dead and abandoned since the beginning. Nothing changed.

    With comments like that, my friend, we could do with a Fabulously Pessimistic rating. :D

    The same guys already tried to make the same game before and failed spectacularly.

    Then they come up asking for money for an even bigger project with even bigger promises.

    Knowing that this was going nowhere from the start is not being pessimistic, but being rational. And thinking that this was going somewhere is not being optimistic, but gullible. They tricked me with the combat beta, but I am in fact very optimistic and easy to fool.

    Are you referring to Chaos Chronicles? If so, I thought that was a different team.
