Yeah, I was a bit naive about game development back then

Thank you to everyone who forum safaris for our amusement. You are doing a great service.

That refund reply mail ranting about the Escapist is fantastic and definitely written by Sandi. I hope someone can PM that poor guy about a chargeback because he got dogpiled hardcore by ignorant fanatics.

Yeah, the faithful believe that Croberts will save PC gaming, but the hardcore space sim is not something that is going to have the mass market appeal they think will. It is a niche genre which is the entire reason that the bigger publishers stopped bankrolling them.

I could see something like a high budget modern Colony Wars taking off with proper marketing, and EVE Valkyrie could be a killer app if VR goes anywhere, but an unfocused P2W game with thousands of dollars of jpgs and fanatical community is probably going to hit a ceiling that is lower than they would need.

And then pay them well under standard industry rates. Which is fine, because true believers need not apply.

Apparently they are now just down the street from Riot, which will lead to some hilarious talent drain.

Hello fellow Parpeteers!

To celebrate PC gaming being saved, the first two (2) posters to post their Steam profile links will get up to $15 of Internet Spaceship gaming as a gift! :wow:

Get Elite: Dangerous and smoosh slaves like that guy earlier today
Get Space Engineers and go build poo poo
Get a Line of Defense pack and give some Redditor an aneurysm
Get Rebel Galaxy and do some Firefly RP in the safety of your basement
Get XCom because gently caress it I don't care that much about it being an actual space sim and there's spacecraft in that

Post now! Get poo poo!

I can't promise that Sandi won't see your steam profile link and send you abusive messages though, so buyer beware!
