Have a question?
So, this is dead now? Sad :(
So many people has reported it. Thats good. Why we get no answer or any information from Kickstarter? Nobody cares? We can not twice the reporting. I think kickstarter needs to be active. Anyone can do what they want here? This is awful!
Megacom as in mega communication?
how do we report or flag this project?
@ravenbasix thanks for that silver lining
even so i'm also incredibly disappointed with this
and i still want my money back!
Such a shame to read these comments. I was really looking forward to this coming out. So sad.
Illness, death, lawsuit? Who knows what happened? I wish we had an update.
And how we can recive at least this music album?
Guh I was so hopeful too. :\
I pledged to more than 60 projects in Kickstarter.
The fact that this is the ONLY project in my list that failed to deliver, so far, gets me SO mad.
Everything is ticked green except this one asshole. I can't find another word to describe this guy.
Just received an answer from one of the artists who have collaborated on the project. He doesn't have any more information than we do. The only positive thing: he will release an album with the music that had been made for the game.
Yup, this sucks.
and he calls himself a 80's kid... shame on him!
So it was a bad investment after all...
And reporting anything to Kickstarter doesn't help in any way. The people at Kickstarter just ignore reported campaigns and will do nothing - unfortunately.
I want this out of my campaign record. I hate to login to my pledges and always being reminded of how someone stole me money,

It's not happening, boys.
He mentioned a lot of different artists about the soundtrack, did anybody try to contact them? Maybe they know something about the project...
At this point, I'd be happy to get the soundtrack for my pledge, tbh
@Martin Mengui his Facebook still there, I'm seeing but it doesn't matter cause he isn't responding to my messages, maybe he's blocked you, I dunno. But like I said, even if you find him he may not respond to your messages cause I've messaged him recently and he hasn't responded but it's kinda weird because during his process when he was making the game and coming out with constant kickstarter updates, he was ALWAYS responding to my messages, that's the reason why I thought the worst and why I'm confused to think why he's doing this. He really did sound passionate about this game, I guess I'm easily fooled.
@TEMPHUiBIS probably he read this and deleted his facebook, man. I can´t find him.
Anyway, I spoke with a layer. There is something called LEGAL SECRECY when you have to keep quiet about WHAT is to be quiet about. But that doesn´t justify his TOTAL silence with us, the people who gave him money. We have been conned. Ripped off. Afanados. He stole the money from us. And probably all the upgrades he showed (that looked A LOT better than the actual alpha he released) was probably just vaporware. The shitty thing about this is not the money, that of course MATTERS, but how he fucks with the whole idea of crowdfunding. How he shits in the concept. AND THE SADDEST part is how Kickstarter, as the platform, doesn´t do anything about it. A LOT of us reported this campaign. I did it multiple times. I contacted them via email. NO response.
As you can see, I am a superbacker. Firs time this happened to me so I am really upset with the whole thing.
@Martin Mengui Hey sorry for late reply, I didn't see this, well it's just I saw his personal Facebook and he changed his cover photo not too long ago and since the comment I posted earlier, he's now changed his profile picture. So I know he's definitely alive, there's only 2 conclusions I can draw with this project.
1) He is in legal trouble and he's been ordered not to speak about it for a selected time (I heard some legal troubles can sort of do that)
2) He has simply forgot about this project :(
It's a shame to see this project go, cause everyone was really hyped for this game, I loved the style and (I know what I'm gonna say next is bias) but when he messaged me and told me my music track is going into the game and put it on here (Update #7) and I saw myself on the Steam page, it made me really happy to be part of a great project like this. Now it feels like I got hyped for nothing :(
Still waiting :(
Hey @TEMPHUiBIS how do you know that he is alive? I mean, I never doubt it. But from where did you learn about his current status?
Click on the campaign tab, scroll to the bottom of the page, and click the "Report this project to Kickstarter" button.
How do you report a project?
Dear James, fuck you, I want my money back
It looks like James Greb took the 52.114 CA$ from 1.960 supporters and used them to have a nice time. Well done!
Is this project still alive?
I was really hoping this project wouldn't die, I even thought at one point that the main person involved was dead or something. But I recently found out he's still alive. It just seems he's given up on this project :(
What was the meaning of the last update? What was the creator talking abut with lawyers?
If I should have read THIS paragraph in his Bio:
"Some of the notable clients he has worked for include Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, and Electronic Arts."
I wouldn't put a DIME on this project. SONY PICTURES? WTF!
Projects like this are why I don't back games on Kickstarter anymore.
If you can't finnish it, just release the source so that others can do that. It would make a lot of people happy (or at least less angry)...
Sad to keep coming back here.
So it was all vaporware in the end?
James Greb <<<<<< scamer
Reported. The only possibility :-(
Reported this campaign. It's a shame.
I've also reported it, though I'm not really expecting anything anymore now.
Same situation like The 90s Arcade Racer. The project is dead, the developer took the money and vanished.
Thank you for nothing!
Reported as well. This is unacceptable.
Reported. Man I did wait for this game. :(
Reported to Kickstarter. Thank Overmann!
And yet another project that just makes me want to never invest in any type of crowdfunding platforms... No news, so i'm guessing it's a bust...
For anyone that has a little less faith in this guy, you can report the project to Kickstarter at the bottom of the Campaign page.
I can't say for sure that'll do any good, but maybe Kickstarter will get some answers.
Can I just point out that this game looks like a BETA? I mean, just look at it. The graphics are amazing.
The Intro sequence/Title screen is COMPLETE:
What he calls "Pre-Alpha gameplay" looks like most other projects' Post-Beta gameplay:
Come on, James. If you're not dead, RELEASE THE ALPHA.
Heck, opensource it if there are legal issues. The community will fix it. :P
@Overman Thats fair comment. The feedback on this project has been terrible, but I have followed other projects on here, and indigogo with similar terrible levels of feedback, and delays. They have ultimately delivered.
My point is, though, that peoples interpretation of IGG and KS is that its a shop, and it simply isnt. Projects can and do fail. If the money was spent trying to make the project a success and it just couldnt meet its goals for whatever reasons, that is the risk you take. But yes, the project owner is responsible for communicating that information, i will grant you that.
Maybe I have too much money, but I pledged $37CAD for this project over 2 years ago now. I considered that money gone at the point of pledge, and at this point that money means nothing to me. If i get a game out of it, excellent. If I get a refund or something.. so be it. But if nothing happens... *shrug* .. its not like its my next mortgage payment.
Still waiting for an update. :(
