      I really don't want to be snarky but if any of you honestly thought this game would be out within 8 months you've severely misunderstood the development cycle of titles like these.
      My approach has been "Here's my cash, see you in a year to two years.", there's quite a lot of transparency here with the constant Bedrock beta updates and what we've got so far is pretty darn great. I completely understand the disappointment people have, but as new developers I'm really not surprised deadlines are flying by - that's the nature of the beast. Cheap, Fast, Good - choose two. I think in the case of this project we've definitely got cheap and we've shot past Fast, so hopefully we'll end up at good.

      Wish I could get my backing refunded on this project, the massive delays have been truly disappointing to me and I am very tired of waiting and seeing weekly updates on a game which might as well take over another year.

      Thanks for your response.

      My apologies for my hasty reply. I simply read that one quote from your update that you didn't know.

      Having read the updates you linked and your reply, I am satisfied that you are, at very least, not just leaving this hanging indefinitely.

      I'm not looking for a precise release date and, as with most of your backers, would prefer a complete game rather than a beta masked as a release (eg SW:TOR). Even the biggest games I'm looking forward to are "Q4 2014" as an indicator. For a small gaming company and what is probably going to be a niche game (not exactly a cross-platform FPS), I would have been quite happy with "we are aiming for Q3 2015" and it is entirely my fault that I missed that line in your update that essentially said release in 2014.

      Hi Loner,

      While I can appreciate you might not be happy with it, the vast majority of feedback we have received supports our position of taking as long as we need. We have no interest in setting yet another deadline which we may or may not hit (or even worse, rushing development for a specific date), and it serves no real purpose in the long run. The safest estimate I can give you is that we should be out before the end of the year.

      If you read the updates that I linked in response to your message, you will see a very detailed explanation as to why we are in this position, and where we are going from here.

      Unfortunately, "we don't know" as an answer to when will the game be completed is simply not acceptable.

      While I do see great progress and appreciate the weekly updates, we do need to know when we might see a complete game. I don't mind one bit that Aug 2013 has past. I do want a realistic date for launch.

      Look at what needs to be done and set realistic targets for each to be done. You needed to do so when you launched this KS and I see no reason you can't do it now. The only difference is you now have our money.

      I loved DK and like what you are doing. But not having a due date is making me feel like this will never be completed and has become another KS money sink.

      @Dawn_

      A pleasure to meet your acquaintance, thanks for the welcome! The role of a community manger is a strange one and often changes to meet the various requirements of the company. It's extremely flexible and generally grows to meet ever changing needs.

      Generally my role is three fold:-

      1. Interract with the Community as required across various social mediums, ensure that misinformation is kept to a minimum and that all members of our community are as informed as possible. Support any community members as required.
      2. Encourage and foster positive behaviour across the community. Monitor and Moderate forums & community hubs and take action as required.
      3. Manage the voluntary QA team to ensure the majority of bugs are resolved during internal testing.

      It's simply a matter of resources; the more exposure WFTO receives the more pressure is placed on team members to perform the above functions, which ultimately will either detract from their work with the community or their work elsewhere.

      Simply put we don't want to be driven to choose between focusing efforts on the game and keeping in touch with our community. As the community grows it becomes more pressing to have someone dedicated to supporting it, this is where I come in; It is my job to ensure you are heard and respected!

      Hope this helped to clarify my role. I look forward to dedicating much more of my time to this community. :)

      Kickstarter is going to send you an email sometime within the next few days that asks you to confirm your address. This is an automated message that has to be sent when we lock down all of your information in order to import it into our own system. It is not necessary for you to update your address within the 48 hours specified. You’ll be able to change it through our backer portal before we begin shipping your rewards after the release of the game.

      We’ll be back next week with more information about the backer portal (which includes a vote on which t-shirt you want to receive), a sneak peek of the Founder’s Theme and some additional information about (and hopefully pictures of) your physical rewards.

      I don't mind the developer updates re art and engine progress because I have no choice but it is clear to me your response is not in relation to what @Daniel is asking for. He wants to play the game, there is no updates on timeline or where you are in that timeline. I have friends who I talked into sponsoring this game and the question I get from them is WTF is going on. As Daniel said he does not care about unit updates and wants a when will the game be out update. There is not even bread crumbs to when this will happen. Playing back your video and the conviction in the voice of when this game will be released should be enough to have some sort of projected date of dropping the game to the people.

      Sorry, should clarify the below comment - I've not had any email communication or advice on how far away the game actually is... Developer updates re art and engine progress is great for those who care about that, but I shouldn't have just had to wade through 50 updates to try and find out how on earth I can get the Steam Early Access going... and I've STILL not figured that out.

    14. Missing_small

      Creator Daniel Smith on February 14

      Is this game actually available yet?

      I backed T4, but have had no communication, no updates, no nothing. It's great having 13-page-long updates for people who wish to keep in touch with the development process in minutiae, but what about those of us who just want a single, big, glowing red button that says 'The game you pledged to back is now available, click here to claim your rewards!'

      I just wanted to commend the team for offering such frequent updates. I am pledged to some other projects and I am displeased with how infrequently they offer updates on how things are progressing... opposite of their stated intent of promising updates.

      I'm still not quite sure why everyone is still so up in arms about it being labelled Beta when it's not labelled Beta, it's labelled Bedrock Beta, and it's still in the Bedrock stages, Bedrock Beta was meant to be an all encompassing term for the entire pre-release cycle.

      Creator ThomasN on August 28, 2013

      Alpha is a version in which every feature there will ever be is implemented, but not tested. Hence, the first beta is the alpha. The beta is then tested by quality assurance and the betas get patched until QA says all bugs are gone, at which point that beta is named release candidate. If the QA has done a shitty job, you can have multiple of them. The last release candidate is version 1.0 and gets released to the public. The software house can go into vacation because there are no showstopping bugs. The end.
      The fact that game developers have it all backwards is not the software engineering people's fault.

    30. Fbbilde.small

      Creator Chris-Andre Fotland on July 11, 2013

      Paulo you are right about that.
      I believe Alpha is when the engine is there, but the story and characters are missing, and beta is when everything is in place, it just needs a bit of adjustment and optimization.
      Demo is of course a finished product, it is supposed to tell you exactly how the full product will be.

      The game is really in Pre-Alpha, it could scare people.

      Just want to make a brief comment about the release date: DON'T RUSH IT. Seriously guys, don't rush the game, take your time. The game seems to be coming along very nicely. It already has that awesome DK "vibe" to it and the gameplay seems solid thus far. Delay the game for months if need be, but don't rush it out the door. One thing about the projects I back that I don't really care about is the release date, I would rather the developers spend all the time they need to get the game solid and full of all the features promised (and without any major bugs). Since Kickstarter projects are akin to "mini investments" of sorts (as any pre-purchase is to be honest) and one in which the investors have a say and stake as to the outcome I say: let the investment mature before cashing it out! Take all the time you need guys!
