It's even better than this, they sold exclusive first play rights to Backers ($100+) in the actual pledge, and showcased a playable version on E3 that they didn't give to Backers. So they didn't just renege on the deal, they fucked their backers over hard on that point.
This isn't so much amnesia as it is malicious asshattery as it would have cost them nothing to give backers the E3 demo.
I am honestly baffled they thought this would go over well. Their pledges are pretty funny reads when you consider Deepsilver already put to the wall that there will not be a physical PC DVD version because this violates the EPIC deal. LMAO
Except you miss the part on the active Kickstarter campaign
where they listed, in bold, "Windows PC Physical Copy. Windows PC Digital Copy." They never explicitly said "Steam" as the platform. People assumed "Windows PC Digital Copy" meant Steam because Steam was the only non-publisher digital platform at the time.
However, Ys Net did not keep backers informed about what they were doing. In the end, the fault is squarely on Ys.
