So I got my money refunded back. For those keeping track it came from Cloud Imperium Games Corporation. Took about three weeks from when I first asked.

What the email exchanges? The majority of them were automated "Sorry we're totes busy making a vidya game" messages. The others were from Patrick and were word for word what everyone else reported.

I still don't understand the current sperg theory that we are trying to destroy the game and don't want it to come out. Of course we want it to come out. If loving with these nitwits is this fun on the internet imagine how much fun it will be in an actual game.

What do they even talk about on these streams? They always seem to just talk about ships on sale or ships coming to their store, but never any gameplay or whatever to show off. :psyduck:

At some point they are going to just run out of poo poo to talk about. Unless they just rehash the old poo poo over and over again.

did I ever tell you about the time derek took me out to go get a drink with him? we go off looking for a bar and we canít find one. finally, derek takes me into a vacant lot and says, "here we are!" well, we sat there for a year and a half, and sure enough, someone constructs a bar around us. the day they opened it, he ordered a coke, drank it, and then burnt the place to the ground. derek yelled over the roar of the flames, "always leave things the way you found them!"

There used to be a street called Derek Smart Avenue until he roundhouse kicked it into space because no one crosses Derek Smart.

Karl, seriously listen to this guy.

It doesn't mean you're saying the game won't come out or it won't be all you hoped it would be. Get your money out now, then if the game is the glorious success that you expect it to be, take all of that money and put it right back in. They have almost 100 million dollars, they don't need your money specifically so for your own sake get out now. Let the idiots with no risk awareness fund it then if it turns out to be a good game, everyone in this thread will be buying it and you can too. You won't miss out on anything besides the chance that you're going to lose all your money with nothing to show for it.

Get out dude, you're a goon now so it's time to start doing the intelligent thing.

I pretty much said this exact same thing on reddit and was downvoted. They have met their funding goals several times over;
STOP
