Can you imagine being a kickstarter backer looking forward to getting your copy of the game on Steam only to then find out the publishers or dev did a deal with Epic Store :-justdont

Basically the dev took the money from the regular gamer on the back of a lie to get the game made then once the game was finished told said gamer to fuck off and did a deal with Epic. The game is done, the deal is done, they don't give a shit about you asking for a refund now. You backers were basically used to get to the end goal.

So disgruntled backers know what to do now don't they. Never give your money to YS Net or Deep Silver ever again :-cool

Could well be. The development has been fraught with problems and delays and now this. It doesn't look to have a solid base for a good game.

The trailer just released at E3 also looks mediocre and dated :-dunno

Just found out it's not coming to Xbox which is so disappointing considering I purchased the remastered :-banghead

It must blow so hard if you backed it back in 2015 to find out now you're not getting it on the platform you expected :-justno

If it was crowdfunded why did they get a third party publisher involved :-think

The devs and publisher should come together and honour what they set out to the backers and give them a Steam key.
