This was the weirdest thing watching the video of it. Chris Roberts gets on stage and says he will no longer give dates on when things will finish because everyone gives him poo poo about it when he inevitably misses them and then the audience cheered?

I think he has a rather bad case of Pubbilitits Inferiatis. Combined with Lowerium Brainicum.

One would be "Den Kopf aus dem Sand ziehen" which isn't dealing with the cultist side of the statement. Though it does address the issue of not wanting to see the cracks in the hull.

Is there a quick 'what the gently caress is going on' primer somewhere? Because seriously what the gently caress is going on?

Like, there was gonna be a spaceship game and now everyone's pissed off?

gently caress it, for the enjoyment this thread has given me, i owe it one. i give you, the new viewer a quality, albeit semi dramatized TL:DR

Once upon a time there was a kickstarter for a happy little game

The game was a happy spaceship game that started off wanting to be the BEST spaceship game it could!

People liked the happy spaceship game so they gave it lots and lots of money

OH BOY! the little spaceship game thought, and promised to be the best game ever!

BUT LITTLE SPACESHIP GAME some people said, I cant enjoy this game without *insert loving anything possible your evil drunken pedophile twin would want*

The little spaceship, for some dumb loving reason said OK!

so the little spaceship game grew

and grew

and grew

Little by little, and bit by bit the little spaceship game got bigger.

one day the little spaceship game looked in the mirror and realized holy poo poo! I'm not a little spaceship game anymore!

IM A FAT LIFE SIMULATOR IN SPACE 5000 MEGA EDITION

by then it was too late.

The little spaceship game bought a sweet rear end hat with "money" on it

and started allocating resources for the game

I SHALL HIRE MY FAILED ACTRESS WIFE AS AN EXECUTIVE! the little spaceship game thought excitedly

I SHALL GET STARS, AND MOCAP, AND INDUSTRIAL LIGHT AND MAGIC TO DO THE VFX!

and the little spaceship game got so happy, it was hookers and blow time!

after the drug fuelled orgy, chri--er the little spaceship game was tired

He went to bed with one company, why does he this morning have loving 7?

He wanted coffee.

Not just coffee, coffee that matched his drugged up fuckfest the previous evening

40k BAM, SEXOCOFFEERAMA

then the little space game had a thought, a perfect thought, a thought that was both evil and brilliant.

WHAT IF I JUST KEEP SELLING BIGGER AND BETTER FAKE THINGS BEFORE I EVEN ESTABLISH ANYTHING RESEMBLING A WORKING PRODUCT?

an evil, and brilliant and perfect idea.

and for a while, it was.

people gave the little spaceship game hundreds, then thousands, then tens of thousands of dollars!

all happy in his new adoring cult of personality, the little space game kept adding tons of oversight to his project, redoing tons of what sensible and rational people would call, done.

then all of a sudden... delays came.. the game wasnt going to be out on schedule!

OH NO the little spacegame thought

I AM hosed, AND MY WIFE WHO IS THOUGHT OF AS AN OPPORTUNIST MIGHT LEAVE ME FOR A NON FAT GUY-ER SPACESHIP

Then he had a brilliant idea.

two magical words...

two weeks

BRILLIANT the little spacegame thought

I CAN MAKE TWO WEEKS LAST FOREVER!

welll..... the little spacegame couldnt.

it was hosed.

It was then, when all hope seemed lost, that another pivotal moment happened.

the crotch incident.

a member of a little spaceship games staff, had taken offence at sand-er a little spaceship games wife's policy of no crotchal mane at the office.

she felt that her hooh-ha was unprotected from the elements

Sand-er a little spaceships wife killed her with a $8000 figurine of a little spaceship game riding a rocket ship.

questions were not asked deeply about the incident as the cops all agreed, crotch hair was p gross.

then a little spaceships wife was accused of being racist, she calmly responded to the issue and didnt surround herself with black dudes for any other reason than freaky sex.

then something that hosed a little spaceship game's life happened completely

he picked a fight with a powerful information superhighway warlord named Battlecruiser 3000

Battlecruiser 3000 is a world renowned dance master.

He invented dancing.

and a little spaceship game couldnt dance.

Battlecruiser 3000 started poo poo talking on his blog, a move he knew no one could resist, after all who could possibly respond to criticism on the internet with any intelligence at all?

Battlecruiser 3000 was smart.

sure enough the little spaceship game responded with *insert the sound of making GBS threads in the morning after eating a combo of mexican street food and indian food washed down with jaeger*

Battlecruiser 3000 was like gently caress THIS BITCH, IM OUT WITH MY MONEY, AND IM GONNA KEEP TALKING poo poo TOO

the little spaceship game became even sadder, when a "respected games internet press journalism" site posted an article that they are going to fail.

once again the little spaceship game responded with *insert the sound of making GBS threads in the morning after eating a combo of mexican street food and indian food washed down with jaeger*

then, the little spaceship game thought

IT CANT BE ME! IM AWESOME! ITS ALL THAT BATTLECRUISER 3000S FAULT AND THOSE "ETHICAL GAMES JOURNALIST" PEOPLE

WE SHOULD SILENCE THEM!

and so the little space ship game did.

he had anyone who spread seeds of doubt, discomfort, or discontent silenced permanently on the official forums, and then had their parents and pets killed.

at last, delighted with himself he shouted I WILL WIN!

then from the door, the unpleasant silhouette of his nemesis Battlecruiser 3000 beckoned.

"come get some"

Hello Commandos


In case anyone is wondering / may not know.
The bits of the game you can play are poo poo, and I mean that. I'm not just shitposting here. The flight model is off, everything runs like absolute poo poo. The parts you walk around in are clunky and dull as gently caress.
Everything feels about 10 - 15 years old, like Anarchy Online or something.
The flight combat is terrible, no feedback, no feeling of power or ooomph behind your shots fired, the ship is floaty and horrible to fly. The race you can do is amazing because it should be good (in a Diddy Kong Racing kind of way, go from checkpoint to checkpoint) but is dull, frustrating and ultimately absolute poo poo.
There is nothing redeeming about the game you can actually use apart from it looks OK in parts when you are still.

You buy an icecream van to convert into a taco truck. It comes with a freezer to keep things cool, but you also need to heat things up so you install a microwave.

Chris Roberts decides he needs hotdogs, so now you also need a steamer. Then he decides your tacos need to be fresh so you also need a deep fryer, and you need a stove to do the mince as you can no longer do pre-prep at the beginning of the day.

Now it's very difficult to move around in your icecream taco hotdog truck and you forgot to install a fridge so all your ingredients have to be defrosted and taste like poo poo.
