Howling with the wolves heh?
I haven't been followed this case closely but I have heard the uproar that it's been creating. I don't know the guy but I thought his Wing commander series was respected.
I have mixed feelings about this because on one side he's surfing on the trend of releasing/selling unfinished versions of games, - whether they are early access or pre-release sales - both I find a tad problematic already, and on top of that keeps selling exclusive stuff. Which I find very very problematic already when it's in a game that has already been released.
At the same time that ranting and whining about an unreleased game is starting to get old. Thing is when you crowdfund your game you have people to answer to but generally speaking i would hate to be told how to do my job by folks who have no clue about game development.
It's bit like obeying a manager that has no clue about computer stuff.
This said, it seems that the more vocal people were not involved in funding that game so my guess is that the guy doesn't get a shit.
At the same he puts himself in this situation by using crowdfunding...
Can't really decide what to think of this. Truth is I probably don't give a fick.
