Fuck off. You literally lied about the quality thing since you openly said you were changing the art style back to 2D who knows how many months to a year ago since you got all our money stolen when you had that falling out with Whatpumpkin. This game is gonna be shit, you're shit. I didn't even read the last part of Homestuck because this shit put such a bad taste in my mouth but I imagine it's happened pretty much like this kickstarter did. It built up a lot of steam only to pass a rather heated and lengthy queef into the face of the fans from a bloated, chunky, and pallid vagina built on lies and continues to make it seem like it was worth it all. But, as you take your medicine for your extreme case of pink eye, you know deep down it wasn't. I was young and dumb when I supported this kickstarter, and now older, jaded and cold to happiness I realize my mistake. You have taken part of what made my childhood fun, and you are burning it in front of me. Never forget this comment. When you release the game, put this comment on the box. The people need to know. I am not the only fan who feels this way, and I will not be the last. They need to know, this is how you break a fan. This is how you hurt someone without even wielding a weapon. May whatever being you believe in take mercy on you for hurting those who loved you this way. Also Jade is still best girl, never forget that either. Good luck on the rest of the game, I'm probably not even gonna play it.
The lack of apology for completely missing the previous release date window and the lack of any transparency as to why these things occurred. Good PR is vital when you want to release a game like this and acting aloof and distant is not going to create that PR. Delayed Kickstarters always get the type of comments that proliferate this comment section, but this particular Kickstarter project is seemingly doing everything it can to give itself a worse reputation among the people that helped make it happen. Transparency is not a bad thing!
As someone who has backed numerous projects, this isn't even the longest or the least amount of communication I've seen. When you back on kickstarter, your are essentially "donating" for the prospect of a reward. There is no guarantee you will get said reward or refund to be had. Though more transparency was needed with backers, the fact that we are seeing more means the track is back on and I'm personally excited to see more!
I hate Homestuck now. It's been too long. I don't even want this game anymore. Give me my money back.
Seeing as how the Asylum playing card game was fined $1000 per kickstarter backer in civil penalties for violating the state Consumer Protection Act (plus they had to pay court fees) some lawyer sure could make a lot of money taking Mr. Hussie to task. http://www.polygon.com/2015/9/11/9310945/kickstarter-court-victory-attorney-general-washington-asylum-playing-cards
Based on the update and the fact that they'll be releasing "interviews" (plural) leading up to the release, I'm guessing we're looking at the release date being months off.
yeah...i hope you enjoy swindling money from people like myself...not even a demo ..a demo of some game would have been nice but nope nothing, your update in feb ..its april and no nothing no pics, no videos nothing, you sir are a good swindler well done, i hope you did good things with the money you took from people. 5 years you milked this thing...just say we just couldnt do it here is your money back sorry.
Not even on time for 4/13
You guys said that you were taking several weeks to test over a month and a half ago with no update since. Either release the game or tell us what's going on, you have an obligation to keep your backers updated about this kind of thing.
what a colossal mess
but what is the awful silence
did you see anything of how that helped no man sky?
stop lying to us and giving us stupid dates when you cant ever meet them
tell us why theres a delay really just let us know anything
at this point this is just disrespectful
I'm with everyone, we need an update on expected release dates.
Can you guys just say ANYTHING at this point
If you are going to act all cute and release it on 4/13 to be meta, atleast drop a message, because the lack of communication at this point is totally unappreciated.
Just finished rereading homestuck a little bit ago.
Still waiting patiently too, the universe will collapse before I give up on a game I want.
I haven't read Homestuck in years. So tired of waiting for this. Just want my money back.
Read the comments and just want to say, still think Homestuck is one of the best stories I've ever read, still looking forward to Hiveswap. yeah!!
i'm going to echo what other people have said in the half a decade this has been going on: please keep your game and give me a refund. i haven't read homestuck in years.
Honestly, I'd just like to see expected release dates updated.
"Confused at the people getting angry at Hussie for not working on the game fulltime when they know the game is being developed by a team of people and not just him.
After working on it for years, they might as well make sure it actually works as intended at the cost of a few extra weeks, surely.
And I don't think we can blame anyone involved with the game for quietly working on it when such abuse gets thrown at them whenever they do mention it."
This was on the latest update page and I thought it could stand to be repeated here. It even says right here as I'm writing this "Be respectful and considerate." I don't really see why people act the way they do or what they hope to accomplish with their rage. Oh well.
Nobody even likes Homestuck anymore. You're making a game for nobody. And you wasted all of our money. Give me a refund.
Okay. So we are past mid-February and no word about the game. I really want my money back. I don't mind at all for all this. Just give me my money back. I'm so frustrated that I don't care anymore of what kind of problems you guys had in he past to get our money robbed, because I never agreed with those studio changes in first place. So just. Give. My. Money. BACK.
email- shoot a message to whatpumpkin. I had the same problem, and they helped me out pretty quickly.
physical address- As I recall, there'll be another survey like the email one when they send out physical copies, but that won't be until all parts of the game have been released, since they'll be all on the same disk or drive or whatever physical version you're getting.
Hello. I've moved houses since I backed the game, and I would like to give the updated adress so the physical copy of the game would be sent to me and not to the wrong adress. Where can I fill in the adress so there won't be any mistake?
What if you changed e-mail and don't actually remember the e-mail you backed with? It HAS been 4 years.
So I've run into an unrelated issue- I honestly can't remember which email I used for this. I had one personal and two school emails, and I used them interchangeably. I've since consolidated to one, but the survey requires my old one, and I can't remember which I used.
Nevermind, I just can't recognize basic coding. All figured out, thanks @RyanG!
Link still isn't working for me; maybe a browser issue?
We made this kickstart happen in October or 2012. Is it possible to get a refund? even partially? I stopped following or caring for Homestuck a couple years ago. 4.5 years is too long to wait for something like this to come out.
There's an extra space at the end of the survey link, remove and reenter.
@MSPA- Survey's busted, help plz & thx!
I'm prepared to wait unitl my deathbed, but id rather not.
Welp, its February. I'm kinda glad i only gave my $25.
Because they don't care about us until they need our money or votes on steam.
They made an announcement on MSPA that the game is delayed several weeks. Why aren't they bothering to give us updates here at all??
Welp, looks like another deadline missed. Sure would be nice if they updated their backers whenever something like this happened...
∆ Almost there, I think its just getting held back for bugtesting or something, I'm really feeling the hype now.
So, two more days of January. Are we still going to see this game released this month?
Jeff: Seeing that you have gotten no response after asking, I think, for the third time, I'm going to guess that either that idea was scrapped or they are going to allow beta testing for a later chapter of the game.
What about the beta test stretch goal?
Like Zach, I need to change my address as well. How can we do this?
I pledged back when this first started, since then I've moved 2 times. I need to change my address to ensure I still get this game (when it comes out)
I'd rather have the $80 back too but at this point I think it's a pipe dream. Anyone who has lost interest in the past.... almost 5 years, is just gonna have to eat this one.
I really don't care about this any more, and I'm not going to play even if it ever gets released. The Homestuck crew have surely made their 2 mil back in WP sales over the past 4 years, so I think they can afford to refund those of us who want it. $55 isn't that much and I'm glad I didn't pledge more, but I'd rather have that back in my pocket.
I've have ugh, y u no proof read annabel
I've have moved as well since I pledged. Is there any way of fixing the address??
Ive moved since I pledged and I was wondering if ill still get a physical copy of the game and what I need to do to fix that address?
What happens to the people who pledged 80$ for the physical copy of the game?
