It goes back to Wing Commander. It’s seriously the epic tale of rise and fall.
The biggest scam in history of gaming, I don't know how it's not been shut down.
I remember seeing the kickstarter for this and thinking it looked amazing.
Obviously that was some 6 years ago.
I forgot all about it to be honest and am catching up through this thread.
Good lord, has it been that long?
I was always hoping for a Wing Commander based mix of Strike Commander and Privateer were you would be commanding a merc carrier and its squadrons and could go around doing missions.
Is it possible that we two, you and I, have grown so old and so inflexible that we have outlived our usefulness? Would that constitute a joke?
Dining on ashes...
Kickstarter announcement was in 2012. According to leaked pitch decks to potential investors, development actually began in earnest in 2011.
Given that Roberts has already said that Squadron 42 isn't coming out this year, and Disco Lando effectively said the new update breaks the entire game and they'll have to re-code a whole ton of shit from scratch ... seriously, if you're still invested in this Ponzi scheme, get a refund now.
It's fascinating from a morbid point of view to see someone and something fail so completely at such a high level.. whenever someone fails at their job it's usually on a level that a healthy company can stomach (unless your are upper management).
I have caused my company a few thousands of loss over the years due to mistakes i made, got slapped lightly on my fingers and told to better pay attention in the future, that was it. Roberts has flushed millions down the drain and gotten people to invest thousands in a product that is very unlikely to ever see release.
As i said.. fascinating to see this unfold.
Never underestimate the power of freudenschade.
Chris Roberts should be in jail for fraud, this entire enterprise has been one giant scam.
Got an update on it:
Sweet, I can't wait to play the final release! I just hope my Galactic Quantum Space Computer can handle it when it arrives in 2034.
And you'll still only see 10 FPS in single-player mode.
