It would be lovely to have any info on what exactly is going on. even bad news is better than no news. Hopefully someone still sifts through these comments
TOG should be sued or some shit. I want my money back.
I want my money back! v.4.0
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. :-/
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?
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.
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.
I want a refund. v.2.0
"I'll finish Homestuck some time in 2013." -- Well, this step is finally happening, so, progress!
I have to imagine we'll get an update sometime after Homestuck concludes.
Nope, last was in December.
Maybe with any luck we'll get one during Summer.
Any updates? Been a few months...
Make sure to type something along the lines of
"Kickstarter backer, Change of address"
In the subject field, might help you get noticed.
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
I do understand that TOG is garbage and everything and I feel bad for Hussie but I just don't care about Homestuck anymore.
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.
I want my money back.
They aint offerin shit. Backer beware.
I want my money back. What can you offer?
Nah it hasn't. Game was estimated to ship in June 2014 so it hasn't even been 2, let alone 4.
its been 4 years passed the due date...
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...
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.
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!
My $1 investment to watch progress on this was worth the investment :D
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.
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.
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.
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.
I completely forgot about this project O_O for almost a whole year.
@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
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?
►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.
"...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
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?
https://www.reddit.com/r/homestuck/comments/3c5vz1/ive_found_an_oddity_herethe_odd_gentlemens_acted/ 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, for.ev.er. 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.
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.
It would be nice if you guys would give us updates more than two or three times a year.
Them's the breaks.
Hope to see an update on the project soon.
@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.
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.
