Use this space to cheer the creator along, ask questions, and talk to your fellow backers. Please remember to be respectful and considerate. Thanks!
What a turd stick......
What a complete douche.....I hope he never has anything to do with the Industry ever
Any word on this?
Oops, looks like it's my turn to turn on the lights and check on this abandoned house.
Here's a stat for all of the "Lucky 99": Silent Bob is now in his second longest period without an update, at 424 days. Way to go! He passed his initial high of 377 days set from July '12 to July '13. But still has about three months to go to break his all time record of 513 days without an update set from July 13 to Nov 14. We're all pulling for ya, big guy!
I'll leave this with a quote from Silent Bob himself from his first update here nearly three years ago: "...I want to leverage my experience with digital printing to make sure games don't just disappear after an initial Kickstarter campaign..."
Getting close to the three year anniversary... Who else is excited?!?!
Just over a year since he last logged in. I just realized we missed an important detail. The project creator supports "Kicking it forward". It's possible he thought kicking it forward meant kicking the backers where it hurts.
Maybe he was eaten by cannibals
Well, at this point it is what it is, Silent Bob hasn't logged in since the last update 1/4/14. He may come back for another apology but doesn't seem likely. The PnP files from Update #16 still have 4 active file links (not the mrwgames site, that's dead, but the file links like this http://scrubpine.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/wfd-pnp-final-firstbacks.pdf still work).
This one seems totally dead but I keep hoping that something will happend
2 years 2 months no game
Kickstarter really needs a way to handle fraud projects like this
Another project that went nowhere
Oh well as long as kickstarter and Amazon gets their cut of the money they don't care
What a shocker he's disappeared again
2 years...This is why we can't have nice things.
Yup.. Still burned on this one. Pretty ridiculous. Interestingly.. my state (WA) has filed the first ever KS project lawsuit. (which I also happened to have backed.) Although I just read about the lawsuit today (from another KS that I backed and is pretty fraudulent feeling.. *cough Airborne in your Pocket cough* - Anyway. If you wanted to follow the lawsuit. It might be interesting as a precedent setter (hopefully a good precedent). http://mynorthwest.com/11/2511738/First-ever-lawsuit-filed-over-failed-Kickstarter-campaign
What a joke! At least he hasn't shown his face at Board Game Geek since this all happened, I wonder if anyone has run into him at the conventions
Sad, Really Sad, someone should take his PNP files and just have the game crafter print this game
@Bill, LOL. But obviously this ain't bothering "Silent Bob"...clicking on his profile he hasn't logged into KS since his last update 1/4/14. And I assume he won't check in again until another "apology" in, what? 2015?
Two year anniversary today! We should celebrate by playing .......oh wait.....
"99 backers, and the game ain't done.
If you're still waiting I feel bad for you son.
I got 99 backers, and the game ain't done.
With apologies to Jay-Z.
HAHAHHAHHAA, this clown is never delivering anything
Sad, very sad
and once again, two months and not a word.....nice
what a shocker, no updates
and next week will be close to two months ............
Once Again a month with no updates :(
@Peter: Well I can see one explanation why he last logged on in August.
He (as did I) backed Colossal Cave and the Backer Email (address verification) went out just before he last logged into KS. So...consider this scenario: He logged onto KS to make sure he got his address info in for his reward for Colossal Cave...all the while ignoring his own backers. Isn't it ironic?
Am I just cynical? Well, if I'm incorrect, prove me wrong Silent Bob...err...Matthew.
I woudl love to knwo what Matthew is doing coming on to here every so offten. He is not backing projects or answer questions here.
Thanks for the reminder, Brian!
...And someone something somewhere accessed the project creator's KS account again on 8/14. Maybe to celebrate the 16th month since funding...and the 13th month since any update.
As an FYI to backers, the PnP file links from "Update #16: It's Still June Somewhere, Right?" still work, so if you're looking to get something tangible out of this, I'd advise downloading them before they go away, too.
Greetings and salutations to his "computer" which had its monthly Matthew log-on again today.
Matthew fulfilled my personal POD order last year with an amazing level of good communication, over-shipping copies in the tens and twenties at HIS expense (not) mine to ensure dents/damages were accommodated for, and we're talking 200+ quality POD game copies.
I still wonder if it's mental health issues? Medical?
Although using eBay and/or logging in here monthly is Shady to say the least.
Good news for those in on Doom, Cryptozoic picked it up and will be sending games to all backers. Sounds like it might not be fulfilled entirely (I assume stretches rewards and such) but this is better than nothing. As for Matt it doesn't look like anything will save him. (I honestly don't understand why he doesn't just come clean about it. I would have much more respect for someone who would do that.)
Yeah I was in for 75 bucks on doom (what a fitting name!), a lot more than my $15 bucks on here. These scams seem to be destroying people's faith in crowd funding as an alternative. What a shame.
Erich, me too. I was really looking forward to that one too. (And the $50 loss on this one, still bugs me. WTF.) Wish he would just man up and take responsibility.
Wow. I just got scammed from another kickstarter project too, the doom that came to Atlantic city. I sure can pick 'em.
He doesn't respond to text messages at the 706 726 5102 number or to messages on ebay
Shame this was a scam. Looked like a fun game. Looks like the only thing that got cannibalized was our cash.
...And his account here on KS is accessed pretty much every month...June 11th...July 6th...
Spending our money on eBay. 4 feedback entries for buying since March.
Before mrwgames.com went down Dorothy Price was listed under the contact information. Here is her linkedin:
From there you can find the Auto dealer she does administrative work for.
There's a phone number for the business.
I haven't left a message.
Yes, it goes to his voicemail.
@Jason: Well, if someone else is logging in to his computer, they popped up again on May 22nd.
@Dave: you call the number? Voicemail?
706 726 5102
For a dead guy, it's amazing that he's still paying his Verizon bill.
This phone number was taken from his website, http://impresspress.com/, on the Online Ordering page. That website is the site he linked on his LinkedIn profile, under contact info. http://www.linkedin.com/pub/matthew-rodgers/20/682/189
Brian, I wonder if someone ELSE uses his computer and maybe anytime the browser is loaded it auto-logs? I use Chrome that way: it loads many tabs and my password keeper auto-logs into all those sites (tabs). But it's ALL very weird, yes.
The disappearance still seems a little odd, unless I'm reading this wrong, he last logged onto KS Apr. 21, 2013. So someone's accessing his account...
