You realize the game is in ALPHA right? By your logic every game before release is a "broken mess."
The vast majority of game developers don't release their alpha code and trumpet how awesome it is. CIG does this regularly.
Every game developer trumpets developments and features in their code.
You're really reaching here bud.
Yes, but they don't release their code and trumpet how awesome it is. You conveniently missed that key difference. Also, this team spends 25-30% of their effort on community outreach, forums, newsletters, etc. On the one hand, this amount of promotion makes them a lot of money. On the other hand, it's a big reason why things are taking so long.
Yes they do, that's what early access IS.
Oh no, a developer is communicating with their supporters! How DARE they!!!
