Grim Dawn Funded

The Kickstarter Page for Grim Dawn has word that Crate Entertainment's fundraising campaign for their upcoming action/RPG has succeeded, as the game has passed its $280,000 goal with 10 days to go. The info on the page includes an outline of how any additional funds they collect will be spent: "If we exceed our goal, all of the extra money will be used to bring more full-time people onto Grim Dawn and expand our art outsourcing. That means more content, more quickly. The ultimate goal would be for us to bring all of our part-time people on full-time and hopefully even hire a few more people. Then we would be totally rocking and well on our way to making Grim Dawn all that it can be!"

Developers work on what they are told to work on, its rare that the developers are ever the ones that set the priority list of what needs to be done.

As a programmer, I know some of the applications I create with my team have flaws and bugs, but im not always allocated the time TO fix them, because the people above me deem other things higher priority. When im moved off a project entirely, no matter how many bugs I know exist, there isnt a darn thing I can do about it.


Chances are, the guys who are now part of Crate Entertainment, are the devs who KNEW the bugs existed, but couldnt do anything about it. People who werent in charge of managing the games finances or funding, and thus, werent calling the shots of which bug(s) got fixed or not.

The bugs SHOULD have been fixed. They werent. Are these guys to blame? Thats impossible to determine at this point. Its like blaming and entire room of 20 people for one person farting.
