      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.

      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.

    5. ravenbasix on May 16

      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.

    6. Mark Reynolds on May 16

      Yup, this sucks.

    7. Sky25es on May 11

      and he calls himself a 80's kid... shame on him!

    8. SpellShell on May 10

      So it was a bad investment after all...

      It's dead!

      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.

    12. Tommaso Tassoni on March 12

      He mentioned a lot of different artists about the soundtrack, did anybody try to contact them? Maybe they know something about the project...

    13. Itinerant Harper on March 11

      At this point, I'd be happy to get the soundtrack for my pledge, tbh

    14. TEMPHUiBIS on March 7

      @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.

    16. TEMPHUiBIS on March 1

      @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 :(

      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?

      @Filipe Castro,
      Click on the campaign tab, scroll to the bottom of the page, and click the "Report this project to Kickstarter" button.

      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?

    24. TEMPHUiBIS on February 5

      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 :(

      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!

    27. Five Element Ninja on January 24

      Projects like this are why I don't back games on Kickstarter anymore.

    28. Sky25es on January 21

      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)...

      Same situation like The 90s Arcade Racer. The project is dead, the developer took the money and vanished.
      Thank you for nothing!

    36. Richtea on December 2

      Reported as well. This is unacceptable.

      Reported to Kickstarter. Thank Overmann!

    39. Ricardo Passos on November 20, 2017

      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...

    40. Overmann on November 16, 2017

      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.

    41. Steve on November 14, 2017

      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:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch…
      What he calls "Pre-Alpha gameplay" looks like most other projects' Post-Beta gameplay:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch…
      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.

      @Adrian, Leaving your investors in the dark pretty much means he doesn't have any product to show.

      According to Kickstarter Terms backers have the right to some sort of legal action against the developer that fails to deliver.

      "If a creator is unable to complete their project and fulfill rewards, they’ve failed to live up to the basic obligations of this agreement. To right this, they must make every reasonable effort to find another way of bringing the project to the best possible conclusion for backers. A creator in this position has only remedied the situation and met their obligations to backers if:

      They post an update that explains what work has been done, how funds were used, and what prevents them from finishing the project as planned;

      They work diligently and in good faith to bring the project to the best possible conclusion in a time frame that’s communicated to backers;

      They’re able to demonstrate that they’ve used funds appropriately and made every reasonable effort to complete the project as promised;

      They’ve been honest, and have made no material misrepresentations in their communication to backers;

      And they offer to return any remaining funds to backers who have not received their reward (in proportion to the amounts pledged), or else explain how those funds will be used to complete the project in some alternate form.

      The creator is solely responsible for fulfilling the promises made in their project. If they’re unable to satisfy the terms of this agreement, they may be subject to legal action by backers."

      While i would love to see this game made, and I still hold out hope that we get a surprise at some point, I think a lot of people on here (and by here i mean Kickstarter in general) don't quite understand that Kickstarter is *NOT* a "pay money receive product" shop.

      Kickstarter essentially replaces, or supplements, the need for investors in a product. Investors aren't guaranteed a product. As an investor you are providing capital to enable the producer to create a product to cover expensive tooling, distribution, or development costs that the producer would not otherwise be able to afford. But this is a gamble on the investors part. You are gambling that the person you are investing in has the ability, and support to see the product through to completion.

      This DOES NOT, however, preclude the ultimate failure of the project. As the dragons on "dragons den" will tell you, investing in a product is a tricky thing and failures are common. This is why traditional investment is so tricky to source. People are not willing to put up large sums on money to back seemingly low volume, high risk projects. This is where Kickstarter comes in.

      People on Kickstarter are pledging relatively small amounts of money into a pool that would effectively replace a single large investor. The downside is that individually we have less say in the direction of the project than a traditional investor might, but the upside is there is considerably less capital at risk.

      Its a balance. As a result if you get your rewards for your pledge as promised, then fantastic, but you should never back a Kickstarter project expecting a guaranteed output.

      Bottom line is, even if this project never completes, or produces a game, you aren't getting your money back. That's the nature of the beast.

      Oops, he said a release is nigh, not night.

    48. Gary on October 19, 2017

      Romain, thanks for the link. I notice in the replies on Intsagram, they mention they are working on a trailer and poster so 'a release is night'. That was August so not too long ago. Is it possible this is almost here?!
