    How many ultima clone-likes are there? I swore there was a codex thread in that.

    Skald, Code of the Savage and Lurking are probably the best known ones.

    I wouldn't call Skald an Ultima clone exactly. Judging by the demos, it's much more number-crunchy and plot-heavy, with a focus on dialogs and dungeon crawling rather than sandboxy exploration (though the caveat is, of course, that the demos/betas all have had very limited amount of content, not really showing the overworld exploration). Plus the setting is dark fantasy with heavy horror undertones, very different from what Ultima-likes usually aim for.
    Depends on how far back you want to look. Overall - dozens upon dozens.

    They seem to have conquered that bane of so many kickstarters, the branded tat. Now all they need is a game to go with it.

    Caitlyn finally figured out KS comments to make some (even though he's hiding on Twitter again). Some were about cutting content that only further begs the question of what HAVE they been working on:

    Some of the posts were giving reality a rare poke:

    TL;DR: Maybe some idiot still cares about your sob story. Most others are a bit fed up with it, in a stark contrast to devs who can offer updates like they were responsible parents for their baby and could remember appointments.

    It's like the more you treat your backers like non-entities there to be strung along and used like a free source of funding that they'd reciprocate a slight amount in turn by not giving a fuck about your excuses that suddenly pop up because there's been fuck-all for real update on progress years overdue. The point was legit, it takes a special effort to ignore how their community have reacted from neglect of good faith fulfillment of updates.

    Maybe if Stalling Delay Grifters would care to actually do some real updates - instead of pissing around and then later complaining about the results of their bad PR - then maybe they wouldn't keep seeing this happen. The way they were going it was like they wanted it to happen, milking a bit of sympathy, but now even the "peers" they have been hiding behind have been calling bullshit on the act. Better devs know better, better acts show better.

    I'd like to see where this goes before the nuclear option still available; there has been quite a bit of learning all around and tremendous growth on part of SDG. But I guess when you are at rock bottom and digging then any other direction would be an improvement.

    It kinda makes you wonder what was reaaaallly happening there in posh San Fran.
    Without any material updates provided, nothing stops any supposition that SDG just sat there and fucked off for years until the money ran out and they had to move.
    (Milestones aren't just for publishers, they are for developers' benefit as well.)

    But you'd have to be a HATER™ to even think of such a possibility!

    What exactly are they stuck on? I hope not netflix binge-watching. At this point, for any redemption they need more transprency and updates. People might not want to see playthroughs as its spoilers but people are in the dark. I didn't read about their personal issues. We all have issues. Get the game finished. Don't skimp on promises. Damn mystery as to what is going on.

    For how much they've been trying to act like they are peers of devs who have released more than a JollyDisk they can certainly bother to take some notes on how to update, or by the time this game (if it exists) does come out then the interest in a sequel will probably be very low. Their only thing is nostalgia-baiting and aside from their KS pitch it sounds like they aren't even up to doing that anymore. Their whole exclusive guild thing was a total bust:

    I need to go and look at my current pnp ks I helped fund. I believe I've collected on 3-4 already. Some don't post much, being their first KS. The most expensive is a 5e exploring the underworld akin to the DSG for 1e. That one might take a wile.
