      TOG should be sued or some shit. I want my money back.

    3. Evgueni Baldin on May 16

      I want my money back! v.4.0

    4. Michael Abi Daoud on May 15

      Refund please - I'm sorry the money was stolen and all, but the game is 2 years late. I'm so done with Kickstarter. 3rd project funded that's tanked. :-/

    5. Evgueni Baldin on May 10

      Still no refund :( v.3.0

      Hey in case any of you werent aware WHY the game is taking so long, its because The Odd Gentlemen (the game dev studio who was hired to make the homestuck game), decided to just steal the money, so Hussie has no doubt gone to court with them over it, many times which not only halted the progress of the game being made, but also the comic. I doubt he has been able to actually get the money back though, so he moved game design in house and what pumpkin is now a game dev studio, the game will come out eventually just be patient, and in the meantime direct your hate all at The Odd Gentlemen

      I need to change my address for the eventual release, does anyone know who I can contact for that?

    8. Dilbert the Animated Series on May 1

      I mean I'd take a refund at this point but it's just not happening. Kickstarter is risky by its definition & What Pumpkin is pretty much entirely radio silent and difficult to reach.

    9. Shane James Michael Hillen on April 28

      I want a refund. Please give me my money back.

      Can't wait for the game! Still as excited for it as ever

      I don't blame people for wanting refunds, all the stuff what was backer exclusive is up for sale on their stores which was what grinded my gears.

      I really wish we could be considered for refunds with this. The suggested arrival date is 2014. It's 2016. This is ridiculous.

    13. Evgueni Baldin on April 12

      I want a refund. v.2.0

    14. Robby on April 6

      "I'll finish Homestuck some time in 2013." -- Well, this step is finally happening, so, progress!

    15. Dilbert the Animated Series on April 2

      I have to imagine we'll get an update sometime after Homestuck concludes.

    16. Brandon Chevalier on April 1

      Nope, last was in December.
      Maybe with any luck we'll get one during Summer.

    17. Rocketsniper on March 29

      Any updates? Been a few months...

    18. Brandon Chevalier on March 17
      Make sure to type something along the lines of
      "Kickstarter backer, Change of address"
      In the subject field, might help you get noticed.

    19. Aliesha Farrington on March 16

      how can I change my address? My pledge included a disc with the game, and if it does arrive in hard copy, I have moved since backing it. Thanks

    20. Rosie on March 15

      I do understand that TOG is garbage and everything and I feel bad for Hussie but I just don't care about Homestuck anymore.

    21. Rosie on March 15

      I do understand that TOG is garbage and everything and I feel bad for Hussie but I just don't care about Homestuck anymore.

    22. Rosie on March 15

      I am not at all interested in Homestuck anymore, I've grown past it, so at this point I seriously regret having backed it. Too bad the game didn't come out when I still cared.

    23. Evgueni Baldin on February 28

      I want my money back.

    24. Dilbert the Animated Series on February 26

      They aint offerin shit. Backer beware.

    25. Evgueni Baldin on February 21

      I want my money back. What can you offer?

    26. Dilbert the Animated Series on February 20

      Nah it hasn't. Game was estimated to ship in June 2014 so it hasn't even been 2, let alone 4.

    27. Alexandra Urbina on February 14

      its been 4 years passed the due date...

      Brian on December 26

      That's not how it works. You took the risk by spending money on something before it was finished. The risks are listed at the bottom of all Kickstarter project pages. It's still being made; it's not canceled...

    29. Zoe Zander on December 25

      Can I have my money back? Like seriously. It's been years. Way passed the due date. And you don't even know when we'd get it. I want my money back.

    30. Tina on December 25

      Man, so many people lacking in patience! I mean, this new update, WOW! I liked how the game was looking originally, it reminded me of old-school computer games from my younger days, but it definitely was a departure from the feel of Homestuck. THIS THOUGH. This looks downright MARVELOUS!!! I love the change in direction, and my anticipation for the completion of the game is renewed! Keep on chugging you guys, your fans are still behind you!

    31. Jayden Lawson on December 25

      My $1 investment to watch progress on this was worth the investment :D

    32. Dilbert the Animated Series on December 11

      I gotta admit, them plugging all of their social media at the very end of the last update post and then going immediately silent after that is kinda hilarious.

    33. RC on December 10

      Still interested in the game but seriously disappointed in the lack of updates. It's been six months since our last update with a promise that we'll hear more soon... and the latest update was four months before that. If we can't even get a rough completion estimate any longer, are we going to add another year to this long wait period? Two? I understand that you can't give us any dates set in stone, but the Hiveswap team really needs to make more of an effort to keep your backers appraised of any updates, no matter how trite you think they are. Half a year of silence reads as dead in the water with your funders' money out the door.

    34. Barbara Boehme on December 10

      Kind of wishing there was a way to get some of my money back, at least the cost of the game since I'm not all that interested or invested in Homestuck anymore. Can't even try to sell off my other rewards at this point, since WP turned around and sold the leftovers anyway.

    35. Alex Jachymek on December 10

      At this point I'd honestly just like my $80 back. I pledged at $105 and okay, I got the print so I can suck up $25 for that. I still love Homestuck and I realize the issues that happened with the production of the game, but to not even have an update on this from anyone actually involved with the game is ridiculous.

      @Maria and Lang:

      There will be a way to update your address before the physical games go out, don't worry.

      Just like the comment before me by Maria Terentieva, I changed adresses too since the first batch of rewards. How can I update my adress before the USB gets sent

    39. Maria Terentieva on November 24, 2015

      Hey there! So I realized that since the first batch of rewards, my address has changed! I ordered my game as a USB so since I assume those will be physically sent out, I was just wondering how I could go about updating my address before then?

    40. Brandon Chevalier on November 24, 2015

      ►Hey guys im back! Just thought id check up on stuff,
      Its nice to see that progress IS being made on this even if it is pretty glacial.

    41. Jeremy Puckett on November 18, 2015

      "...production is moving along and we're looking forward to sharing that progress with you soon."

      Where "soon" apparently means "not for more than four months." =p

    42. Akhil Ayres on November 15, 2015

      So, question: in the event a backer changes his address in the time between the initial goodies were sent out and the completion of the actual game, how do we get in touch with the distributor?

    43. Carl Nelson on October 23, 2015 more odd gentle man nonsense.

      but in more related news. My bigger disappointment is that homestuck's ending has been delayed for so long :( i'm sure that he's doing his best but for people who didn't back the game and just want to put a nice close to this chapter of their life they have to wait, to just find out what the end is to the main story. which try as you might to defend artistic integrity is really just a slip up of priorities since it was supposed to end YEARS ago right?

      I was young and naive when I backed this game.

    45. Dilbert the Animated Series on October 9, 2015

      It's not just the Kickstarter. All of their social media; Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook have been dark since July. I imagine we'll get our end of the year update.

    46. Emily Kilbourn on October 8, 2015

      It would be nice if you guys would give us updates more than two or three times a year.

      Dear Huss,

      Them's the breaks.

      Hope to see an update on the project soon.

      Richard on October 1, 2015

      @sharpmath That would make sense if TOG belonged to Hussie or something, but they basically just failed to meet the expectations from their contract. Hussie isn't god or anything, he can't physically make people do something, and he did *try* but they barred him from their site. The real question is why he can't have a legal investigation to get hard proof and, in turn, sue them for embezzlement. The likely answer to that is that it's costly, and he can't spend Kickstarter money on it because that has to be spent for the game. Nobody is flat out saying "Hussie isn't to blame", they're just giving the information that people have been asking for.

      sharpmath on September 29, 2015

      I love the links in some posts that try to say that Hussie isn't to blame. It's his thing. He is to blame. He has let everyone down. What a sad situation that he messed up his initial webcomic and his attempt to make a game out of it.

      It almost feels like we've been cheated out of our money. At least one update a month would be nice.
