Hope the guy doesn't commit suicide. That would suck. Nobody, not even backers, should push him to that point, and if they do they're pond scum. POND SCUM I say!

He won't. He's got a strong community that supports him. Most recognize he was shooting for the moon and gave it his best shot.

He hired two developers a year ago. They recently departed. I assume because Josh ran out of cash to pay them.

the writing was on the wall the day he was fucking hospitalized because he couldnt cope with game dev

Except that he recovered from that 3 years ago. I don't think it was obvious that the project was doomed after his episode.

At this point we should just stop importing electronics from China. It's bad that our archrival in the world today also supplies us with all of our goods.

Bleh, the movies were terrible, the books were mediocre religious allegory. This can only end in more expensive tripe like Lost in Space.

There are so, so many great fantasy series out there. This one has been done. How about the Thomas Covenant series? Each book is basically a season since they take place in completely different times. Or if you're looking for something a bit more adolescent, Chronicles of Prydain? Classic.

Really sad about this, I feel for the guy, been following this project for many years. The man has talent and skill.

Yes, but supporters told him years ago to look for a team to develop the game but he would not listen. Now he is broke, broken, and the game is dead. I hope he gets well soon but nevertheless, he ignored some good advice.

Well I started to ask myself: "What does procedural generation give you?"

A hundred million systems all of slightly different configurations. And procedurally generated ships without direction are just not all that sexy.

If he had concentrated on making a more standard game with SOME procedurally generated elements...maybe he wouldn't be in this state. But...that's life.

Well, No Man's Sky pulled off procgen pretty spectacularly, IMO. It did take them quite a number of years though.

My iffy feelings about Star Citizen lately only increases, and same for X4... things don't look good in the space game market.

Unlike Josh Parnell and the Star Citizen team, Egosoft has actually shipped several games in the last decade.

I respect his attempt at this endeavor. I accept that he has personal demons that have prevented him from accomplishing all that he wished. I respect his decision to admit that he can't finish this and explain why.

In the end, who didn't see this as the inevitable, logical outcome?

Next up: Star Citizen

I can't say I disagree with this. Even though I backed the game, for whatever the lowest tier was that gave me access to the game, I'm reasonably sure that I'll never see Squadron 42 in the way that it was originally pitched. I don't give a single damn about multiplayer because other people are just wasted code and that's all SC seems to be focusing on along with some of the dumbest shit I've ever seen like fishbowls and towels.

Hey, c'mon now. That towel physics engine was amazing, especially when the starship got a hull breach and the towel got sucked into the vacuum of space.

Also, that whole map-your-facial-expressions-onto-your-avatar was critical functionality.

I followed this project for years. It's a shame nothing came of it. He seems close to alpha: the engine is in good shape, the AI and economy we're coming along. In the end his reach exceeded his grasp. Hopefully a team of talented modders can finish this up. There's still potential here.

shit that is killing is the corn syrup. Not 'sugary drinks' but 'corn syrupy drinks' but that's not an industry-friendly definition

Beef, fries, sugar, corn syrup, none of it is good for you.

Every game should be CoD, BF, AC, FC, WoW, Destiny, or some variation. That's it.

FTL? Trash.
Darkest Dungeon? Rubbish.
Cuphead? Inartful.
Minecraft? Too blocky.
Terraria? Too pixelated.
Broforce? Derivative.
Rocket League? Unrealistic.
Gorogoa? Too artsy fartsy.
Machinarium? Too gray.
Star Citizen? A scam.

Okay, some may argue that last one.

I believe every single one of those were made by people who'd had experience in the industry. His #1 point is that if you aren't talented enough to get experience in the industry, you likely aren't talented enough to make a great game, and likely don't have the experience to be able to project manage a great game, therefore you shouldn't put your financial wellbeing in jeopardy.

He goes on to say you shouldn't get an expensive yet worthless degree in game design (100% accurate), and you shouldn't start big but learn fundamentals first.

All of this feels like pretty good advice. Anyone that's put money into a video game on Kickstarter can probably relate, too.

I'll admit that the article has some good advice. However, one of his main contentions is you need 10 years in the industry to be successful. The FTL team had only two years at 2K before they quit to form Subset games. George Fan only had a couple of years of experience before making PvZ. I'm glad those guys didn't wait, because those are some of my favorite games.

Yeah, if we're trying to break a record for most corruption and criminal activity in a single administration. He's definitely the best at that, and always has been.

No wonder he never released his tax returns like all Presidential candidates have done since Nixon started the trend.

You need Republican votes to impeach. They'll never do it.

Here's how much fast food Americans are eating. Too much.

Been saying this for almost 20 years. I truly believe the majority of health problems in kids and young adults can be linked to the consumption of processed and fast food. Generation X has the sickest kids with heavily over prescribed medications. Our bodies were never meant for that stuff.

It's all true. The majority of disease and illness that humans suffer from is caused or exacerbated by food choices. Sugar and corn syrup are subsidized to make them cheaper. Instead, they should be taxed like alcohol and tobacco. The factory farmed meat we eat is nothing like what our ancestors ate: it's cheaper and more fatty, so we eat a lot more than our ancestors. Add to that our sedentary lifestyles, and it's a recipe for illness and poor health.
