      RPG glad all is well.

    2. Creator RealPlayersGrind on October 3, 2013

      LOL also i took me some typing classes with Mavis Beacon joking of course i hope all you guys are doing well even the haters

    3. Creator RealPlayersGrind on October 3, 2013

      yo yo yo whats up guys i been working haven't had much time to get on here but i have been looking at a few blogs about the project to see how people felt about it . Lol no need to say this but alot of people didn't take it serious . I made a few mistakes first is i forgot this was the internet, second this was my first encounter with trolls and i must say i was feeding then witch was a bad thing very bad . Third I felt like if i was 100 % honest that most of you will see where i was coming from but that did not happen for the most part there where a few people who where able to act like adults . And i,m thinkful for the few who did . I am working on Tear and ill show it when all the systems or working . Because people didn't seem to understand it was the start of the project not the end or middle . Maybe i should have been more clear about things but i will not repeat the same mistakes over . And also to the ones who make blogs a make post based of speculation . Keep doing what your doing not every one understands everything . I know my limits and my flaws i don't get on here and act like i'm perfect because i am not im human . But we seem to have some inhuman people on this kickstarter . It will come soon i haven't been working on it alot maybe 2 months out this hole year

    4. Creator Mike Hunt on August 23, 2013

      Yes, make a blog or something.

    5. Creator Jeremy Pischel on August 16, 2013

      Hey RPG hope all is well .Do you have any progress to share. Would love to see something. Some youtube videos perhaps. Also you should start you Vlog. I 'm sure alot of people would watch it,

    6. Creator RealPlayersGrind on July 14, 2013

      Also i have been on a brake i have no dead lines now so i been taking my time . But i plan to some of game play as soon figure this out. Lol i am a very bad uv texture mapper

    7. Creator RealPlayersGrind on July 14, 2013

      So its a'lot of systems i still have to figure out . Its going to be a open world rogue like rpg with online .

    8. Creator RealPlayersGrind on July 14, 2013

      Yes i am currently working on the programming . I am trying to get all the bases of the game working . I have the online working for the most part . Its alot of trail and error because it's not a game out there like the one i'm making and the closet one i can think of is ultima online

    9. Creator RealPlayersGrind on February 21, 2013

      update chick it out

    10. Creator Star LaBranche on February 6, 2013

      RPG, I really don't understand why you can't grasp how important proper grammar and spelling is when you are trying to present yourself as a professional. This is not some weird idea I have that I'm badgering you about. Here are several articles on the topic:

      Please look over these articles and maybe you will understand why good grammar is important for any professional, not just someone who is trying to write a book. You say that you have and will learn from your mistakes but you refuse to see this as a mistake. It is. It will prevent you from getting backers and having people take you seriously.

      Do you remember the article in Forbes? They quite openly mocked your grammar. They didn't say, "Well, he's a programmer, not a writer, so communicating effectively isn't important." Grammar is important whether you like it or not.

    11. Creator RealPlayersGrind on February 6, 2013

      ill put one out after my smaller project comes out

    12. Creator Jeremy Pischel on February 6, 2013

      I can't wait to see the demo!!!!!! Any idea when it might be ready?

    13. Creator RealPlayersGrind on February 6, 2013

      lol and as i said i had A's and B's in school i got awards in almost everything i did and i understand the things im not good at some people judge doctors on body art are there hair style if most people see a doctor with a mohawk and a tattoos think less of them i personally think they should be free to be there self's its a stigma just because my grammar isn't the best don't mean any less able to do what i said i can and if you think that then it on you

    14. Creator RealPlayersGrind on February 6, 2013

      lol yes i can say my grammar isn't the best i openly said that many times and whats my true colors ? and im not going to say i did something wrong when i didn't just because it make you feel better i never saw a law saying i couldn't use free stuff . If people cant see i'm a person just like them just because i'm pretending i'm me all the time i don't get on here and act any different then i would offline you 1000 miles away from me but you feel like you have the right to judge what i do on a daily bases. If you feel like you cant trust me then don't thats how i feel i'm not trying to win over the world i can't worry what a few people think . Yes i said ill have a demo and i do but people need to do there research stop asking why this and that isn't like that if alot of you stop worrying about every little thing i do and look something up yourself a game is not put together into the last 4 too 3 months. Putting it all together texturing only make it harder to make the full game clam to like games but don't have any understanding of what goes into . I had a plan a good plan but most couldn't understand it and i got tried of trying to make most of you understand . As for the reward tiers i said it like 7 times once people back a tier it can't be changed i didn't know that into it was to late . Everyone is not going to be happy with everything a say are do and i'm ok with that its life

      Star LaBranche My problem is i dont have to i'm not to write i'm here to make a game that's what you fail to see now if i was writing a book i can see the problem but i'm not . Most of the people problem is this black and white view they have on the world i understand people are different and just because i can't understand something don't make it right are wrong . If its something i don't understand i don't complain i get off my butt and go out there and learn about it .

    15. Creator King Midas on February 5, 2013

      You say the computer is a learning tool, rpg. im gonna help you learn why the Lore kickstarter failed. Read my list, take in its criticism, and improve on it.

      1. Your grammar is awful. You need to improve. Type up your responses in microsoft word and spellcheck it before you post here. It will improve dramatically.

      2. Your lack of grammar and the lack of caring about grammar really shows your true colors. It shows that you dont care about polish or presentation. The fact that you were too lazy to even run what you typed for your main kickstarter page and pledge rewards through a spellchecker just isnt good. Its not professional in the slightest. Will you care about the grammar in the dialog ingame? I really doubt you would based on what Ive seen from you.

      3. Lack of content. You have pretty much nothing to show. You are trying to earn investors here. All you have right now are ideas, which is fine, but why should I invest in your ideas and not some other person's? You really need content. You said you would make a demo, then said posting here distracted you from making a demo, then you stopped posting here to make a demo...and we got no demo.

      4. Blatant stealing. Cant trust someone who steals content and lies about it. You havent even apologized for it.

      5. No financial planning whatsoever. How did you determine you needed $150k? How exactly will $150k pay for everything you need? Investors need this information.

      I think those are the big issues.

      I am not some nasty troll. I am not here to make fun of you. I desperately want a game like Lore to exist. You need to learn from your mistakes so that you can make this idea a reality.

    16. Creator Star LaBranche on February 1, 2013

      And another thing, I have to read your comments at least twice, usually more, just to understand what you're saying. Most people won't give you that courtesy. If you want people to take you seriously, and you claim that you do, then you need to write so that you can be easily understood.

    17. Creator Star LaBranche on January 30, 2013

      Doctors have bad handwriting, not bad grammar. No doctor can get through that amount of higher education without knowing how to write coherently. Also, you said before that you're just lazy, that's why you don't type properly. If you have an actual problem with typing, then what is it?

    18. Creator Mike Hunt on January 30, 2013


    19. Creator RealPlayersGrind on January 30, 2013

      I have a typing problem lol if it was that easy i would have already done it and why are you complaining you seem to understand what i was saying. People like yo your grammar sucks i'm like i know i'm working on it like i said i don't use the talk its a learning tool for me. Lol i don't get why people are complaining alot of developers and doctors have bad grammar .

    20. Creator Star LaBranche on January 29, 2013

      So I take if you've learned from your mistake of typing so lackadaisically that most of your backers can't understand what you're trying to get across and will start writing in complete sentences using proper punctuation and grammar? You wouldn't want to keep repeating your same mistakes and all....

    21. Creator Mike Hunt on January 29, 2013

      "Failure only come when you don't learn and repeat the past mistakes."


      Oh well, I'll keep an eye out for your next project. Best of luck.

    22. Creator RealPlayersGrind on January 28, 2013

      i'm not doing it for money and i'm not making a fully marketable Dayz clone because its someone else's ideal . Do you have any knowledge of these programs ? i have done my research no body put full tutorials up of how too with unity. These videos want be a everyday thing only a once or twice a month thing . If you feel you can do better please do try i see and saw the reason's my kickstarter failed. I know what i did wrong that's why i'm not posting my solo project into i have it almost done . watch this the hole show alot of big name developers feel the same way as i do. The most funded things on here game wise are they going back to old school or remakes of old game's. Why ? because they safe its a fact people will go with the safest thing when it come to there money most people not all . The only reason i'm doing a smaller project is to get people to trust me and i hate the fact i have to do it . But sadly thats how it is lol and if i started my Dayz clone thing im 100 % sure people would watch and making they tutorial would show i can make a functioning game. Science is trial and error when you run into a problem you learn from it . Just because it failed this time doesn't make it a failure. Failure only come when you don't learn and repeat the past mistakes. To learn i must make mistakes and to make mistakes i must learn

    23. Creator Mike Hunt on January 28, 2013

      Also, friendly advice:

      Forget about the DayZ tutorial and focus on getting your solo project out there. Nobody will follow your tutorial until you can prove you can make a functioning game so put the DayZ tutorial aside, since its ultimately of relevance to nobody. (Also, for those interested in making a successful DayZ clone - well just do the exact opposite of WarZ.) Its the equivalent of you or I making a kickstarter, for a guide to making a successful kickstarter. Just sayin'

    24. Creator Mike Hunt on January 28, 2013

      Different's -> Difference.

      Apologies, but it's so wrong that it's actually causing me physical pain.

    25. Creator RealPlayersGrind on January 28, 2013

      lol people asked i answered Bob nice try with the low blow but i know my weaknesses i told people from the start im not the world best typer . I'm not the type of person to spend all there time talking stuff about people i don't know i spend my time learn things. The computer is a learning tool but people some people seem to have forgot that. All that knowledge at the finger tips and people waste they time being butthole's . Make kickstarters and things about another person thing just to try and get notice. I honestly feel sad for people like that only monsters get joy from other peoples failures.

      Jeremy Pischel yes i will in time i was going to put up my demo but i can't teach people and make a game. Meaning some people don't know what it takes to make a game i understand its not easy . I'm working on Lore and another smaller solo project to show people am not all talk after i get that almost done ill make a kickstarter of it. Maybe after that people will be willing to support Lore the way i want to do it.

      I'll post the how to make the Dayz clone when i done making the things for it and ill give people the models and animations for free they only need unity the scripts as well.

    26. Creator Bobs Yer Uncle on January 28, 2013

      "Bobs Yer Uncle do you have anything else to do ?"

      Ha! I made ONE post in two weeks in regards to your posting of your YouTube channel that has ZERO uploads on it which makes it utterly pointless to tell people about. You abandoned your own creation and never delivered your demo, let alone any halfway decent updates, but I'm acting like a middle school kid? Makes sense. Although I wouldn't say you were acting like one, RPG - because most of them can write intelligibly.

    27. Creator Jeremy Pischel on January 27, 2013

      RPG will you be relaunching another kickstarter in the future.

    28. Creator RealPlayersGrind on January 27, 2013

      Bobs Yer Uncle do you have anything else to do ? seriously i dont understand why the people who don't try to do anything try to drag others down . What are you doing ? besides coming on here and acting like a middle school kid . I dont like the state video games are in its the same thing over and over and over again so i'm doing something about it. The only thing most people do is complain its the rare few who get out there and try to make a different's . So you set on your butt and do what most people do best i'll be out there making a different's good day sir.

    29. Creator Bobs Yer Uncle on January 27, 2013

      Well at least RPG gave us a link to his YouTube channel. It doesn't have any content of course, but if you wanted to see more of his incoherent commentary on OTHER people's uploads, there's that. I guess. C'est la vie.

    30. Creator Hero of Termina on January 27, 2013

      Wow, I cannot for the life of me figure out why this great idea failed like this =I It makes my already abysmal opinion of humanity sink even lower V_V It's like when Megaman Legends 3 got cancelled, the fans just didn't throw enough money at this for it to succeed.

    31. Creator HumanGames (deleted) on January 27, 2013

      Nevermind RPG, at least you tried, which is more than a lot of people.
      Good luck with your next endeavor and stay positive ^_^

    32. Creator RealPlayersGrind on January 27, 2013

      lol not in 66 mins but it was a good run

    33. Creator PegasusOrgans-AGL 589 on January 26, 2013

      we can still do it!

    34. Creator RealPlayersGrind on January 26, 2013

      Star i wait into i get alot more done some people think that a game is done from the start and not knowing the process. So ill make sure the demo is perfect because most people cant get there heads around it .

    35. Creator RealPlayersGrind on January 26, 2013


    36. Creator King Midas on January 26, 2013

      9 hours remain. We are so close...yet so far.

      What is your youtube account RPG? Id like to see your tutorial.

    37. Creator Star LaBranche on January 26, 2013

      So no, then. Okay. Just thought I'd ask.

    38. Creator Star LaBranche on January 25, 2013

      So.... Do you have anything to show us after your extended absence?

    39. Creator RealPlayersGrind on January 25, 2013

      no im just showing how to make one on youtube when i get the time

    40. Creator Mike Hunt on January 25, 2013

      You are making a DayZ clone now?

    41. Creator Mashedpotatoandtaur on January 25, 2013


    42. Creator Ron Au on January 25, 2013

      Well, all the best then.

    43. Creator RealPlayersGrind on January 24, 2013

      im alive lol my project was not blocked are suspended i have been working on the game and doing other things. Learning the ends and outs of the new unity as i said im still going to make the game im just more focused on the learning. I learned alot from making this kickstarter and doing it the way i did i will not repeat the same mistakes the next time. Thanks for coming back Kevin i just saw you came back so i logged on to say something. I'm working on lore and a smaller project i can do solo for the most part also im going to make videos on my youtube on how to make a DAYZ clone with unity maya and photoshop. I'll finish my solo project first when im close to being done i'll make kickstarter ill keep working on lore also but that want be back into my other game is finished maybe then people would see i know what im doing

    44. Creator Sean Singer on January 24, 2013

      With the exception of a few comments (mostly defenses against hilarious responses to my original comment from RPG), I have just been a lurker on this project. But I have been here every single day since I discovered it a few weeks ago (during which time I read through the entire comments thead from the beginning), and you guys have given me so many laughs amid the frustration of seeing the creator repeatedly... well... do what he does in his responses - you don't need an explanation. Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for everything that Lore has become. By the way, it doesn't really matter, but I'm Polkadot Disco on the SomethingAwful forums (but I'm just a lurker there, too). So I'll be creeping on all y'allz postz in the future, yo.

    45. Creator VoiceOfReason on January 24, 2013

      As the countdown transitions from counting the days to counting the hours that remain, I grow melancholy. So many people tried to help: Tim, Matt, Mike, Remi, Star, VoiceOfRaisins, Potatoandtaur, John, Bobs, Robert, Andrew, myself and many others; if only RPG had listened to us. Part of me thinks that if RPG listened and acted on all this advice then Lore could have been wonderful, but his ego means it will simply be consigned (again) to the graveyard of dead KickStarters; where awful projects go to die.

      It's not all bad though, they say disasters bring people together and Lore is no different. Lore has helped me and others join the SomethingAwful forums. It's helped people connect across the world as friends on Facebook. It has amused and entertained so many people through its description and project updates, not to mention the comedy of the backers in this comments section. Indeed, Lore truly has been the gift that kept on giving and both Potatoandtaur (still banned) and I are sad that the ride is coming to an end. I am personally glad that we could amuse enough that /v/ and other sites were quoting/screencapping our comments (mainly Potatoandtaur's!) for others to see :) Finally, I just want to say thank you to the rest of you backers for the laughs and fun you've been, hopefully we'll meet back up whenever/wherever Lore gets crowdfunded in the future :D

    46. Creator Marcus D. Hinds on January 23, 2013

      Yeah, it really did make for some epic reading and belly laughs didn't it!
      Like I said, I hope I'm wrong.
      Would love to see something, but I suspect I will be disappointed.

    47. Creator Kevin - Potato Salad Aficionado on January 23, 2013

      Come on, if everyone already on board just increased their pledge to a paltry $1744 this project would be able to go ahead... Cheapskates.

    48. Creator Star LaBranche on January 23, 2013

      Holy crap! 3 days to go! Where is RPG?

    49. Creator Mike Hunt on January 23, 2013

      Even if it was a scam...well I still got more enjoyment out of this whole project than I do out of most retail games - KS bans aside.

      Please George, give me a gameplay demo.
