I don't understand why this was crowd funded in the first place. The Kickstarter that went live in 2012 said they had investors that would be picking up the tab for the entire development of the game.
"We have investors that have agreed to contribute the balance we need to complete this game as long as we can validate that there is a demand for a high end PC space game. By meeting or surpassing our target on Kickstarter you tell the world that you want a PC based Space Sim and allow us to make this game."
So...why all the money grabs with selling spaceships? This is the biggest smoke and mirrors show around!
Yep. That was the first lie and the first promise they broke back in 2012:
- These ships will only be available until the end of the pledge campaign, never to be sold again for real money. Buy, buy, buy!!! Last chance!!! Now or never!!!
Fast forward 4+ years later and with the exception of the Scythe you can still buy every single ship (or a better equivalent because some ships from the start have already become all but obsolete) for $$$.
The second lie was that buying the ships during the pledge campaign was going to be the best deal/lowest price for those ships. That was also complete bullshit.
The third lie was LTI...
... and so on, and so on...
So many lies over the years. Fuck CIG.
