They call it a "vertical slice." Hello Games had a vertical slice of No Man's Sky that they demoed at E3 and to the press that did not reflect the actual game. So my question is, what does the real Squadron 42 look like? Or is this smoke and mirrors?

It's a shame it's not based in the Wing Commander universe. That would be thrilling.

It basically is Wing Commander.

A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess?

It's standard procedure and good business sense to remind players about the good things you're doing when a game is delayed regardless of the funding source.

Yes, and most publishers do it in as precise a manner as possible without fanfare and pimping merchandise. Here are a few examples of my point.

"Never let a crisis go to waste." Video game crowdfunding developers/publishers have figured out how to turn an apparent negative into a profitable positive without a single vocal outcry from those they wish to exploit. Star Citizen is the current heavyweight champion of this shlock. Double Fine is doing it too, albeit at a less monstrous level.

Does this clarify my point?

Right out of the Star Citizen playbook.

- A delay announced? check
- A video to jazz people up? check
- Advertise some sort of merchandise? check

You don't have much experience with crowdfunding, do you? Those three things have occurred with pretty much every Kickstarter ever. In fact, they've occurred with almost every game ever made, crowdfunded or otherwise. Games get delayed because development is all about iteration and polish, videos are used to build hype or keep the community informed and merch is sold to further fund development and promote the game.

If Double Fine starts selling vehicles for Psychonauts 2, then your Star Citizen comparison will be accurate. Until then, it's pretty stupid.

You cannot see the connection because Psychonauts 2 isn't selling vehicles. Really? When developers (or publishers) announce delays, they typical publish them in a terse, albeit positive, manner. When Star Citizen announces delays, they sugar coat the heck out of it with tons of "but hey, LOOK at this amazing video, also, buy some merchandise" nonsense. Double Fine is copying that style of announcement for their delays sans vehicles.

Video game crowdfunding is a dog and pony show for companies who don't believe in their product enough to seek VC funding or hit up a proper publisher. VCs and publishers ask the kinds of questions and demand the types of results that crowdfunding sheeple do not.

I asking (not telling) to reduce the number of political comments. I even offered a great alternate via the Politics subreddit.

We remain neutral of politics, so I have nothing to say about it.

Even if you were under a dictatorship with religious persecution? What if your involvement in politics could put an end to such a dictatorship?

Review the history of JWs living in Nazi Germany. What they did then, applies today.
