Have a question?
You say Hex Heroes isn’t abandoned? Prove it.
The thought of this game always floats around when I think about games I wish I could play. I'm glad to read it hasn't been thrown in the back burner but, instead, receiving backing secluded from the front. Because of that, though, I can understand the frustration of some backers.. still, this thing is high on my most anticipated list! Best of will to my fellow Hexlings! (..Dork with no pitchfork! :))
We will still be delivering Hex Heroes and rewards. We’re still under development and will be updating when we have more to show. The game hasn’t been abandoned.
Maybe backers could get a soundtrack and some of the artwork or something.
Status - abandoned.
4 years of waiting, no updates since Jan. Game is clearly not going ahead.
I get that the money is probably all gone But I was wondering if you still could offer the soundtrack signed by grant Kirkhope that was in my rewards teir?
I figure if I can get anything that would be a big plus?
I think I know what's happening here. The project did fail, because of startups, only a few of them succeed. That's understandable.
However, if they just came out and said this, I think that we would have reason to ask for refunds. They probably used the money to develop the game, not exactly enough money though. I mean, $90K is a pretty tight budget for 4 years of on-and-off dev work. They have a rough prototype but nothing to give us.
As much as they would like to tell us this, show us what work they have completed, etc, if they did so, I think kickstarter would allow us to ask for refunds, money they don't have. So, they will be "in development" forever, posting updates every 12 months.
I'm okay with this. I hope the guys who started this aren't too disheartened, and keep trying to innovate and create something new. Prismatic games, change your name and start working on a switch title that takes advantage of the two controllers! Maybe one person holding the screen relaying info to the two that have controllers, or four, to defuse a bomb they can't see or something. Take what you learned that we funded and go to the next level.
I message them on fb, they said they do have a couple things to tell us and that the project is still somewhat on track.
Estimated Delivery: 3 years ago.
God I love Kickstarter.
Never kickstarting a project again,
We're now 3 months since the last update! "Nothing to show" has become the status-quo, and I am immensely disappointed.
You need to stop talking about delivering your unfinished project and start talking about refunds. "We’re still working on Hex Heroes and it will be delivered as we promised." is a joke.
This was clearly a scam/mismanaged Kickstarter campaign.
I'm still looking forward to give it a try on the wii u.
I'm hoping I can change my order to PC or anything else or donate the game to someone who may have the Wii U.
Hello? Hello? Hello?
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone at home?
um, guys is this project still somewhat alive? I use to think that this AND affordable space adventures would be the best usage of the second screen on the wii u, and well affordable is long released and this?
Hahahaha just looked at my pledge for this it says estimated delivery for April 2015
I'm thinking more like when the wii u is completely and utterly dead in 2019. Luckily its not worth it anymore to sell old consoles.
Extremely disappointed with how this project has been run. You absolutely need transparency with your backers from here on out if you want this project to survive. My wife and I barely use the Wii U anymore...scratch that, the gaming community barely uses the Wii U anymore. You need to pick up the pace or your game will be well and truly forgotten, along with your brand.
What baffles me is that we still haven't gotten to beta test the game at all. I would like to at least try the game I backed. Why not make a demo your next step, to show that the game is at least playable?
Guys, it's been nearly 10 months since a proper update. This isn't OK.
Pleeeaaaassseeee some information guys!!!
Y'all had a good go of it, but it didn't work out. The best thing I could hope for at this point is for you to refund your backers as much as you can out of whatever's left and call it a day.
Thanks for trying, really. I for one was really excited about the concept, but it's run its course.
Here we are in mid-December 2017 now, and we have yet to hear a proper update about Hex Heroes since March, roughly 9 months ago. Miiverse is officially dead as of last month, the last official Wii U retail game release was in October, and Nintendo has all but officially communicated that the Wii U is dead.
As others have said, including myself, I understand that hiccups can happen, delays in game-making are inevitable, and staying hyped about developing a game for a console that is finished must be hard, but that doesn't give you all the excuse to keep us out of the loop. If there is nothing to share after 9 months, especially after you claimed you were going into the certification process back in April, then how are we to trust that you're even working on the game?
There needs to be better transparency between Prismatic and your supporters, because I'm telling you right now, any communication is better than no communication. As it is right now, your lack of communication makes it seem like this game is dead. If you don't want us to believe that, then change our minds and give us something to believe in again.
You guys i kind of hope that this game makes it out from development hell, though most likely you have no money and well :/
Is this project dead?
I know I shouldn't share much but I can say that things are happening on this game. A LOT more than is being let on. It definitely was a big endeavor but I'm pretty confident that it will be worth it to all who play ;)
Come on...update us
Last update was in March. And you said in a comment once you have more news you'll share an update. The fact that it has been 9 months since the last update and no news to share is worrisome. If there's not an update before the end if the year then there is no hope this will actually deliver into a product...
I don’t even want the Wii U version anymore.
Hey, you should do monthly updates to let us know you're still alive! Even if it's not substantive with content we'd enjoy hearing from you.
How's that 'release this year' tracking, from your update last March?
To those asking for refunds you should know its not going to happen as you are pledging a donation. @Prismatic it seems like you bit off more than you can chew. I really hope you are able to make the game you always wanted, but I believe you lost faith from 2k backers. I still continue to look forward to one day trying this game though I know it will shortly be "shelved" as my Wii U doesn't see much use anymore. I hope you are able to prove me and others wrong, and make a game that takes you far.
Here to post my monthly comment: Can I have a refund?
We’re still working on Hex Heroes and it will be delivered as we promised. We’ll make another update when we have more news to share.
Last login by the creator was in May. Is this project another game failure? Only one game actually delivered in all the ones I backed.
Hello guys, any news?
Can I have a refund?
Anything? Its been years since I backed. If it even releases it should be for the switch at this point.
Can I have refund?
End of september, any updates guys ?!?! :/
Hey, as a fellow game dev, I can understand how a small team feels when a project takes too long. Especially under the circumstances, I imagine this is very demoralizing. This is actually why I've strayed away from using Kickstarter for my projects. The fear of not being able to deliver on a promise by a specific date was too much for me to handle. I appreciate your continued attempts to stay in touch with us, and I just want to say: don't give up. I can't pretend to know everything going on behind the scenes, but I know that you had a dream for a great game, and you've come too far to give up on it now.
Yes this is a very big problem in every case. Like Jason Capp said: Wii U is dead, so it logically can never be a successful game, like many Wii U games are. Many Nintendo games were so awesome, but never successful because of the low sells. I think it would be the same here, even worse cause Wii U is dead. But even the interface on Switch isn't that good for Hex Heroes it is a necessity to bringt it there.
Oh man I wish the best and of course more updates. Still love the game, but the wait has been toooooo long.
Gotta agree with Jason. I love my Wii U and still use it but once I get a Switch (hopefully by the end of 2017), I wonder how i'll feel about it. There's great potential for Hex Heroes on the Switch, thanks to LAN play and the ability to always have at least 2 players thanks to the JoyCon.
Right now, however, i'm more concerned about when the game is coming out than where it's coming out.
Let's be honest, though. This was predicted to be released over 2 years ago. I assume most of the people who backed this initially were supporters of the Wii U, but the long, extended wait has not only hurt the momentum of Hex Heroes, it has also been a problem for Nintendo and the Wii U.
As I said in the prior post, the Wii U is in its dying days, and again, if most of those initial supporters of Hex Heroes were hoping for a Wii U release when the console was still relevant, what does that mean for most of your supporters now? Just based on the comments, it sounds like most people who had a Wii U have either 1) sold it, 2) traded it in, or 3) put it away somewhere where it's collecting dust.
You say you want Hex Heroes to become a successful and fun game for a wide audience, but I think you're largest camp has dwindled to a minuscule amount. Again, a Switch release isn't a desire anymore. It is a necessity for Hex Heroes.
We hear you and we’re going to try to get back to once a month updates.
As for release on the Switch, we have nothing new to announce. We promised to make Hex Heroes for Wii U and PC, and that will happen. We want to see Hex Heroes become a successful and fun game with a wide audience so we’re looking at all of our options.
Oh, man. It's really hard to be excited about this anymore, especially when the Wii U is definitely in its dying days. Major releases are done, console production has ended, and as of November 7, the one surviving aspect of the Wii U, Miiverse will be shut down.
I really believe in Hex Heroes, but the relevance of the Wii U has killed the momentum of this game. A Switch release isn't even a desire anymore, but an absolute necessity.
i, and as i imagine many others, wouldn't be so annoyed if there were more regular updates :/ atleast once a month please. What is even going on with this game, any guess for a release date? :/
@Jason Schlueter: Hex Heroes is definitely kid friendly! In fact, it’s built with all skill types in mind, so we hope families will play together.
Is this an appropriate game for kids? Since the project was successful I have had two kids and the older is the only one using the WiiU.
