      Hey Kwan do you pay people a salary and not do much work is that where the money went or did the money go on the drugs you are taking?

    2. Specie8470 on November 19

      Kwan how many times have you said the last stretch or similar words? You said you were in the final push to get the game out September 2016 and earlier this year on facebook you stated you were within the finish line and we are at the end of 2017 and this game most likely won't be out this year. I am convinced that the money is gone and this game will be made whenever and if you get around to it. You refuse to answer most of my questions or just give me vague answers. If you really wanted to get this game done you would have by now but somehow you have time post about other things and other games and create artwork that will probably not be in the game. You can't even answer a simple question how much this game is being worked on other then we are doing what needs to be done to finish this game. IS THIS WITHIN OUR LIFETIME???

    3. Kwan Creator on November 17

      We're not abandoning anything, guys. We're in the last stretch - leaving anything unfinished would be quite a waste. ;)

      I'm not necessarily talking about the details of the publishing agreement, but what we have now is complete abandonment for months at a time by project creator. posting here and begging for answers is not working. What else are we supposed to do?

    5. Freddy on October 27

      Any news ?

    6. Specie8470 on October 11

      Sekai Project is probably contractually obligated to not reveal the details about their deal to publish this game. I did hear from Nicolas he told me to calm down I been asking questions for months with no answer. I question if they game is being worked on full time or part time or spare time and it seems like the later. How long should we be expected to wait five years or more? Going to wait a bit then get on Nicolas again.

      Maybe it would be a good time to target our complaints to Sekai Project, they have inherited certain obligations by agreeing to publish this game. Maybe if we flood them on twitter and through customer service emails for action, they can use their leverage to get some type of answer.

    8. Specie8470 on October 2

      Do you intend to just take our money and give us nothing? What is happening with this game? Why won't you answer my questions? I want my game or give me a refund!!!!!

    9. Specie8470 on October 1

      I would appreciate an answer to the questions I am asking I put $500 into this kickstarter and I deserve respect and so do the rest of the backers that gave you money. We have been waiting three and a half years for this game that was supposed to come out in 2014. What is the current completion progress of this game? How much longer is it going to take to get this game made exactly. What exactly does Sekai Project bring to the table to help get this game made? What happened to your previous programmer that was with you since 2015? Either give me my game or give me a refund. How long do you expect people to wait WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE GAME!!!!?!?!? AND DON'T SAY SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    10. Specie8470 on September 19

      Thanks Jim I appreciate the support. We been at this for three and half years and still no game in sight and not much from the creator. I still question what Sekai Project is bringing to the table to help get this game made. We heard a year ago they were in the final push to get the game out before year end and a year later still nothing and who knows if it will ever get done.

      Imagine what type of content you have to present to a publisher to get a deal, I bet Sekai Project has seen more of this games progress then we have for entire duration since kickstarter. I'm sorry your question has been ignored for a week @Specie8470. Sadly, that is the continuing status quo, even though I hoped it would change following this news of securing a publisher.

    12. Specie8470 on September 11

      Nicolas Sanchez can you please answer my questions. What does Sekai Project bring to the table that will help get this game made exactly? How are you in any better position to get the game made with Sekai Project then with Razer which you failed to meet any of those deadlines? On the subject of programming what happened to the programmer you had since 2015 that you had confidence in? You seem to be having alot of problems with progamming is finding a Unity programmer harder to find then a Ren' py programmer? Where has all the money you had saved up exactly gone are you just paying programmers money who arn't good at coding or have you spent all of our money we gave you on drugs? You said six months ago on Facebook that you were close to the finish line and six months later we still don't have a game and no clear delivery. You said a year ago that you are in the final push to get the game out before the year ends but a year later still no game and no idea if will ever get released. Nicolas Sanchez where do you stand at the overall completed production percentage of this game? I am tired of hearing you say soon for every damn question I have been waiting three and a half years for this game. Nicolas Sanchez I want your physical address because you have not delivered what is promised by Kickstarer you are legally obligated to give me. I want my game!

    13. Specie8470 on August 26

      Where is my Game?

    14. Alex Hamerling on August 22

      Just so you know, while I am still excited to see the final product, you still get an F- for communication.

      Feels like we are the last to know here on the original kickstarter what is going on. Would have been nice to have a kickstarter update for backers to coincide with this news. Instead of just leaving everyone here to guess and assume what this means.

    16. Russell Deitch on August 22

      I'm not on Twitter so I hadn't seen the announcement.

    17. Russell Deitch on August 22

      This is very promising all of a sudden!

      Not sure if this is good news or not, but it's bad news for anyone that wanted a Vita copy. Glad I backed this for the PC version. Sekai hasn't released anything on Vita yet..

      Hopefully there are some benefits aside from marketing for joining up with Sekai.

    19. Specie8470 on August 20

      Suprised Sekai Project picked this game up. Upset this was announced in other places first before the kickstarter because honestly we gave alot and got nothing but nothing yet. Hopefully Sekai Project will be able to help finish the game. I did have a chance to meet with them last weekend so atleast things look less hopeless. Wonder when the game will be released though.

    20. Chris on August 19

      Seems like the news is that the game is now published by Sekai Project:

      I've lost patience.

    22. Specie8470 on August 6

      Hopefully the news is an actual release of the game.

    23. Kwan Creator on August 6

      Sorry, guys. Soon it'll be made clear what the silence has been about.

    24. Alex Hamerling on August 6

      Please stop going dark. It's frustrating.

      Can we get some kind of update? Haven't seen anything since May

    26. Martin Joly on June 28, 2017

      @Kwan It's been six weeks now... getting pretty hard to defend you when you keep disappearing like this

    27. Specie8470 on June 26, 2017

      @Wistrel Chianti the reason for silence is because nothing is getting done. The producer blew all the money developing for Ouya and prescription meds and the money is gone.

      Wistrel Chianti on June 25, 2017

      Hi Dev Team. Please see the following link. This is how you should be updating people as to progress. (not the silence you seem to be so very very fond of ; ) ) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/64161490/the-13th-doll-a-fan-game-of-the-7th-guest/posts/1920038…

    29. Martin Joly on June 13, 2017

      @Kwan Hey man, been a month since your last update. Got anything more to show on your progress? Would be interesting to see what's been done in that time.

    30. Specie8470 on May 16, 2017

      @Alex Colossians 4:6 Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone.

    31. Alex Hamerling on May 14, 2017

      @Specie That's not what I was saying, you just hijacked my argument to spread more salt.

    32. Specie8470 on May 5, 2017

      @Alex Hamerling Oh I get the point of your post totally, The reason for no updates is nothing much is getting done. It has been three years people are not going to sit around waiting forever.

    33. Mitchell on May 5, 2017

      Huh. I totally forgot about this game and that I was a backer.

    34. Alex Hamerling on May 5, 2017

      @Specie You're completely missing the point of my post. I don't appreciate you hijacking my arguments just to spread more of your salt.

    35. Specie8470 on May 4, 2017

      @Alex Hamerling thats if voice acting hasn't already been cut out of the game. I heard they will release voice acting later on as an update now but who really knows now.

    36. Alex Hamerling on May 4, 2017

      Why does every "update" have to be a long post? Just communicate more. Show a screenshot, share what a voice actor had for lunch, just say hi, anything.

    37. Specie8470 on May 3, 2017

      Whats the point in even having release dates if you never make them with no explanation? You said before the game would be out for sure in 2016 and we are almost halfway into 2017 with no news no nothing just silence. We want a damn answer of what the hell is going on and how much longer is this going to take?

    38. Martin Joly on May 3, 2017

      I think people would just really like some evidence that there's work being done at all. We have to take your word for it all the time. I know you're probably scared to disappoint or of backlash, but only talking about stuff all the time doesn't satisfy our curiosity about the games state or prove anything really. Hard evidence that you're doing anything would be cool. Non-spoiler screenshot maybe? Your updates on the facebook have stopped as well which compounds the issue.

      Anyway, not trying to come down on you. I can wait however long. I just think it would be healthier to show what's going on so that it doesn't create an environment where your backers try to attack/defend you with no proof.

      Hope that release date isn't too far away.

    39. Irx on May 3, 2017

      I personally never read long updates since I don't care about development details much or the lives of the developers. Still, updates are important as an indication that a project is alive, a new screenshot/art and a couple lines of text are enough for me. Not having updates for months is not cool, since that makes me come and manually check comments, and I prefer to spend my time doing fun things.

      Anyway, nice to know the game is not dead. =)

    40. Kwan Creator on May 1, 2017

      We feel that nothing short of a release date really means anything at this point. Even if we post new content, the question is still going to be: when is the game coming out?

      So the next update will be about that (and revealing that new content of course!), when it comes. Thank you guys for sticking around, and we'll continue to push forward and hopefully bring everyone an awesome game. :)

      I dont understand why the narrative now is that an update on the kickstarter has to be so substantial in order to satisfy backers, so for that reason we just wont update at all. It makes absolutely no sense. I'd be happy just seeing what the main menu and user settings options will look like. Some type of picture showing progress, is all I want.

    42. Specie8470 on April 25, 2017

      @Nils Kirchhof you back all of two projects including this one. I am familar with the visual novel Root Double and have played that also and basically that kickstarer was for physical goods as the game itself was already translated and was going to come out anyways with or without the kickstarter. I know it is hard to develop a game on multiple platforms. I do often wonder what the whole deal with Ouya is and if they ever paid out the money owed and what the whole story is behind that is but I guess i will never know unless we are told which might be never.
      I do feel betrayed I been lied to on many kickstarters and had every excuse. I even have one visual novel game I supported that actually came out be pulled off of steam for undisclosed reasons. The fact is that we were promised the game would be released in 2016 and it's looking like it won't be done even by half way into 2017 if ever. Also the fact the last game update was in 2015 is nonesense. There is no excuse for not having an update in almost a year and a half and i am tired of this nonesense about being unable to put out a worthy kickstarter update in that length of time.
      Kickstarter isn't some investment or some chairty for developers. According to kickstarter we are promised said rewards that are stated but the quality of them is in question but we are still owed are rewards for the tier we backed.
      I am trying to support the english visual novel industry but it just seems my efforts are wasted and developers don't care.

      Nils Kirchhof on April 22, 2017

      @Specie8470 I back the projects on kickstarter fully knowing that I might not get anything in return.
      I'm studying CS at the moment so I can imagine how hard it must be to develop a game, let alone for multiple platforms.
      You shouldn't feel betrayed or anything, because I don't think you were. Even if I don't know if the game will be released, I think the creator put his heart and soul into the game.

      See your pledge as investment in an independent developer and to show the industry that there is an audience for this type of games.

    44. Specie8470 on April 21, 2017

      @Nils Kirchhof I hope the game isn't dead but I have a feeling that you are correct. I just want to cry so let down been trying to support these types of games and been let down every time,

    45. Missing avatar

      Nils Kirchhof on April 19, 2017

      Guys, it's simple: The game is dead until proven (released) otherwise.

    46. Specie8470 on April 4, 2017

      @Kwan I heard similar statements from other visual novel kickstarter creators what makes you any different from them? The clear fact that you havn't posted a game update since 2015 says alot. You have had release timeframes before and you havn't met them with no explanation. How many times are you going to say soon you keep saying that for the better part of a year. It really seems like you are hiding the truth from us I believe there is alot more going on that you arn't saying. I've caught creators in lies before because you seem to giving every excuse you can for delays and the lack of any updates.

    47. Kwan Creator on April 4, 2017

      I assure you there will be no disappearing. Exogenesis has been central to my life as the director for at least the past 3 years, and it has been a great endeavor for the rest of the team as well. There's no way we're putting all that to waste.

      I'm sorry you feel disrespected, but lately our sentiment has been - the only possible good news is a release date. It feels like nothing we could ever say would garner any positive outcome, aside from a release date. We understand it's been a long wait for everyone, and we all just want the game to finally come out. Once we're past a certain point (soon by the looks of things), we'll be able to talk about that.

      Sorry again for the wait, and we're hoping for a bit more of your patience! :)

    48. Specie8470 on April 3, 2017

      @Alex Hamerling lol at the Specie guy. But yea I feel that they don't really care about their backers and just overall done with supporting any causes whatever even charity causes and aninal wellfare causes. It's a sad state when we don't have a game update since 2015 and it is 2017 now and still nothing. People gave them alot of money and they just show no respect to us. Most likely they will just disppear and we will never hear from them again had that happen before with me even had another Kickstarter creator lie on their resume when applying for jobs listing them doing work for their company even after they shut the company down.

    49. Alex Hamerling on April 2, 2017

      Guys guys, you need to communicate with us more. It's bad enough when you guys say you have "nothing to report", but when you just keep a total radio silence, it makes things even worse. And it creates people like that Specie guy. Has your well run dry yet? What will happen when your well *does* end up running dry?

    50. Kwan Creator on March 17, 2017

      @Specie8470 It honestly seemed possible at first. We underestimated the effects the downtime we experienced last year had on everyone (e.g. one of our artists taking on extra work, slowing us down on that end), and I'm more prone to creative block than I thought. I'm very sorry you feel that way, and I wish this was a less grueling experience for all of us.

      @John Sherman 100% content completion so I can move onto writing updates and spreading the word out. :)
