I vaguely remember playing this in 2014, back when you could grab the 'Complete Pack' on Steam for $12. It may have been unmemorable, but at least that means I didn't hate it.

At the end of it's life cycle, Google was selling the 3 for under $350. So everyone who wanted one, got one of those. When they announced the 4 at twice that price point -- everyone just looked at the feature set (not much changed) plus the pricetag and went -- Nah, we're good.

Then when the first set of reviews came out, they all went -- we'll just wait for the next one, thanks anyway.

A gameplay trailer with actual gameplay wouldn't have gotten nearly as much press. Doing it this way got them trending.

When enabled, the spiders will remain spiders, but the sound file and head model will be replaced by a likeness of 1998 era Tom Hanks.

Good for them. That was a solid game, through and through.

And despite that, if you ask any popular youtube personality to share their numbers, the revenue share for their monetization has dropped from what would have been a reliable $10K per month for their market base to about $400, if they are lucky. Granted, a lot of them were overvalued, but it seems to me that instead of generating more advertising income, they've simply gotten better at finding ways to keep from paying it through now that they have a broad enough disposable content base to enable them to comfortably ignore complaints.

Niko turned down one too many invitations to go bowling with his buddy GFWL. By the time it got swapped out for Air Hockey, it was too late to save their relationship.

Nice. The sound bug made later replays of the original require a bit of a workaround. It will be nice to have a way to avoid that.

I'd kind of forgotten this existed. I'm glad he's continued working on it. I wonder if I still have my old alpha copy on a hard drive somewhere.

I've never understood why this is an issue. The game launched on a platform I don't want to buy it on. So I don't buy it until it launches on a platform I use. Problem solved.

It always takes them a good solid year to finish patching the bugs out, at which point it will be on *all* the stores AND probably be on markdown with a decent DLC bundle.

I don't get the outrage.

I didn't even realize this game had come out, let alone that it might be good.

It wasn't. Even the most hardcore of Notch fans didn't do much more than mess around with it for an hour, set it aside, and never touch it again. They all went to Hearthstone instead.

Oh, and remember that Dec 31 deadline? They lied. The servers shut down in two days right before the office gets shuttered. Also, employees will not paid out for any PTO accrual, given any severance, and their medical insurance is ending in 8 days.

Happy Thanksgiving!

It was one of those games that was fun for a while, but none of the developers really understood what was fun about it. And patch by patch, they eventually managed to remove the fun and were left with a product that nobody was willing to give them money for any longer.

It will be worth it if they bundle the finished product with a version of the first game that does not turn into a buggy unplayable mess by the second act.

They would have signed the papers to dissolve the company sooner, but they only had Mad Catz pens to work with. The first one was broken out of the box, the second one ran out of ink halfway through the first initial, and the third one only worked from right to left.

Don't care what the stretch goals were then, don't care now. If more content gets patched in later, great. Gives me an excuse to replay it. If not, didn't care to begin with.
