It's because of people like this that we can't have nice things.

It's because of this, and the fact that Starbound's team have given up updating their game, that I only Kickstart games from people I know. I've done Pillars of Eternity, Mighty No. 9, and Shadowrun. But those are from people with a known background who are proven to be good at what they do and will follow up on it.

Because of this unknown developers who really want to try to make a game will get the shaft. Imagine if everyone thought FTL was a scam.

Such a shame, could have been cool.
I cancelled my pledge just after they released the 'game footage' and thought that that would make everything ok.
Then they suddenly gained $24000 over two days without any increase in the number of backers per day.
If they were ever legit, that was one of the worst run kickstarters I've ever seen.

Well to be fair, Chucklefish is still working on Starbound. They may not have put anything in game in a while but they're still posting progress updates.

But yeah. People like West Games ruin it for independent developers who aren't there to make a quick buck.

Wow, just wow. I knew something like this was coming. But they are going to onsite crowd funding? Really?!? Why? After this they are pretty much screwed and they are going to something with no safety net and no one is going to go for that.

Someone somewhere will donate I'm sure. All they have to do is keep going around and trying to lure people to the website.

I really hope everyone spreads the word to be weary, i don't want people falling victim to this.
I was really looking forward to this originally but that changed quickly when the fire nation attacked.
