      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.

      Hey folks,

      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.

    5. Jason Capp on December 12

      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 :/

      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

    10. Quinn on December 6

      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...

    11. Seth Beauchamp on December 5

      I don’t even want the Wii U version anymore.

    12. Thedude3445 on December 3

      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.

      Evan on November 29

      How's that 'release this year' tracking, from your update last March?

    14. Gabriel Guillermo on November 16

      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?

    16. Prismatic Games LLC Creator on November 2

      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.

    17. Rene Dupre on November 2

      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.

    24. Evan Peiperl on September 6

      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.

    25. Dennis Kopcan on September 5

      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.

    26. Andrew McCue on September 4

      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.

    27. Jason Capp on August 29

      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.

    28. Prismatic Games LLC Creator on August 29

      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.

    29. Jason Capp on August 29

      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.

    30. Tegan Spresser on August 28

      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? :/

    31. Prismatic Games LLC Creator on August 23

      @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.

    32. Jason Schlueter
      on August 23

      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.

    33. Quinn on August 18

      At this point I really hope a Switch release is planned or something. After taking so long with the game I've given up hope on the game and sold my Wii U. I'm still half expecting nothing to be delivered with how sluggish updates and communication has been.

    34. Prismatic Games LLC Creator on August 17

      We’re still active and in development. Information to release is slowly piling up, so sorry we haven’t updated in awhile.
      We’re also checking on why the website is down.

    35. Andrew McCue on August 17

      TNo updates to social media, sporadic at best replies here on Kickstarter. Over a month since the last smiley-face comment, 5 months since the last update. We NEED more information.

      Evan on August 15

      Missed your ship date by almost two and a half years, missed the entire lifespan of the console, haven't tweeted since January or posted an update here since March, and your website is down. Wish I hadn't backed this.

    37. Kaihaku on August 15

      My Wii U isn't going anywhere. It's still my favorite for local multiplayer. So I'll still enjoy Hex Heroes if it gets released for the system - but no hard feelings if not, you've fought the good fight.

    38. Eric Russo on August 12

      Will there be any news coming soon? It's been about five months since the last update :(

      I want a refund, the lifespan of Wii U has come to an end and we've been more than patients about this release, 3 years since i backed and the deadline was missed by 2 year+ and counting.

    40. Aaron Lee Brenneman on August 3

      I personally expect to be playing my Wii U for years to come, and I don't know when I'll be able to pick up a Switch. I'm still looking forward to Hex Heroes, even if it might not reach the size of active player base on Wii U that it deserves.

    41. Danilo Heroso on August 3

      Nice to know that you're still up! Thanks

      hey i'm glad we got a response from the actual staff, keep it up guys.

    43. Dennis Kopcan on July 26, 2017

      @Andrew McCue : That is exactly what I was thinking. I completely forgot HexHeroes cause Switch keeping me busy with all the games and my Wii U is kind of dead. But a game called Hex Gambit pulled me back here, so it looks not that good for the games future and updates are very slow, making me forget too.
      I hope we will get news very soon. Now with the pretty awefull Nintendo Online App available, this could be an opportunity to use the smartphone like the Wii U Gamepad and connect with the Switch ;)

    44. Andrew McCue on July 16, 2017

      I had so much hope for this game. I even think it'd work great with a variation on Switch. But it's been 4 months since the supposed "home stretch" was entered, according to updates, and we've heard nothing since. I still regularly use my Wii U and likely will even when I get a new console, so I wanted to have this game as well. That's why I backed at the level that would let me and a buddy of mine play the beta. I just don't understand what's going on. You have had support from big names online, cameos from other Indie devs pushing you along, and more. Now I'm just left wondering if the game will even release.

      Hello, I had completely forgotten I had backed this. Your project had so much promise, what a waste and I've been involved in some poor kickstarters in the past but yours is now the worst. The other 2 delivered the rewards 2 years after their promised date, where you are still developing software on a dead system, this would have been exciting back in April 2015. You were strike three for me using Kickstarter in the future.

    46. Prismatic Games LLC Creator on July 11, 2017

      We're still chugging along. We know you're all anxiously awaiting for news. It's coming soon. :)

      To be honest, I'm starting to lose faith as well. I sent a message on 28 March but haven't heard back. I don't mind the waiting part, but I'd like at least an acknowledgement from the creator when sent a message.

    50. Corey Johnson on June 6, 2017

      Unfortunately, your audience is nearing extinction. I understand your refusal or refunds and the financial implications it would cause, but at this point, don't bother sending me any of the releases (if there are any). It is an insult at this point. Thank you.
