News Comments > Broken Age Budget Tight: Steam Early Access Planned
38. Re: Broken Age Budget Tight: Steam Early Access Planned Jul 3, 2013, 09:13 Mr. Tact
 
They ask for $400k, get $3.3M and they still didn't have enough money? While I understand they added things not in the $400k plan because they raised more money, it does not excuse running out of money.

I don't see how it can be anything but poor project management, plain and simple. And if these guys with all their experience can't get it right, I'm not sure what it says about them or the gaming industry in general. Plenty of us have marveled at how anyone could spend $100m on a game. And yet, here are some experienced guys who said they could make a game for x, got 8x -- and STILL didn't get it done.

I feel like there should be so much more to say about this, but I can't figure out what it is...

We set a record here in Tucson, although it isn't a good one. Every day in June has been over 100F.
I have a good friend living in Tucson. His spin is with the under 5% humidity, it's "okay" all the way to 105. Here in the Midwest (Central Illinois) mid 80's with our 80% humidity is equivalent. Choose your poison...

Yum, a surcharge of $0.60/kWh. Must be a pretty good program to get people to volunteer for it.

Guess that depends on what scope you are discussing. At a purely physical level normal, adult humans certainly do. We don't poke dead people expecting them to wake up. Beyond that, it's highly variable depending on who you talk to.

I wonder why this ARPG gets so many chances, when other games if they suck and if they patch no one cares again?
Just a guess, but I'm going to say because it sold millions of copies.

In the "Smartest thing I've done in a long time" category is Alec Baldwin who finally caught a clue and closed his twitter account. This after his latest set of embarrassing comments. Never ceases to amaze me how people in public life continue to act like complete and total idiots. Hire an assistant to be your buffer.

Haha! Either the dev actually thought a 555 exchange would be a non-functional number or he knew better and put in as an "insider's" joke -- either way it is funny.

Midwest summers without AC? No, thank you. I had more than enough of that when I was a kid in my parents 1923 house. *ugh*

The sad thing is, anyone without a sense of technology will believe the cloud hype....OMFG1!!1!!! Cloud = 4 xbones!!!1!
No, the sad thing is even managers in tech companies have this mindset.

I remember when they changed it so it didn't require the authenticator every login. There were plenty of people on both sides of the debate.

Spammers are the unsung heroes of the internet. The billions of SPAM mails hogging those supercomputers at NSA and frustrating their thousands of analysts never fail to bring a smile to my face...
Uh, if Google can effectively filter my spam away I suspect NSA has no problems filtering it away.

If you have been around modern gaming for long enough you've only been screwed about a hundred times - that tends to breed a very healthy skepticism about these kinds of too-good-to-be-true projects.
Exactly, I like everything they are saying and promising. But at this point it sounds a little too good to be true. I hope I'm wrong -- only time will tell.

I was rooting for the Spurs also, but when they didn't win game 6, I figured they'd lose game 7. They did better in game 7 than I thought they would, they had their chances to win the game, just couldn't quite get there...
