I feel like I've been hearing of this game for the longest time but haven't seen much of it to warrant it's near 8 year development time.



I wouldn't call it a scam because they probably invest almost all the money in the game development. It just seems too ambitious to ever get finished as a “normal“ game. Too much manpower for the less important stuff instead of finishing it first as decent game and improve it afterwards to something special.



People have been calling it a scam for a long time now.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Is it just me, or dude looks like an older, chubbier Elon Musk?

At least Tesla delivers real cars while they're burning investor money, though.

Two quote from that Forbes article: "Most of the people here helped to pay for the game’s development—on average, $200 each, although some backers have given thousands." and "$242 million has been contributed by about 1.1 million fans"

I really don't know how they got these numbers. Here are the real number from the RSI-page:

Probably "on average $ 97 each" wasn't clickbaity enough.



Saying it for awhile.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

Don't ever treat video game journalism (Namely from Forbes) as attempting to do fact checking, honestly the game is improving constantly, which is more I can say about games releasing recently, that for some reason get to release glitch invested "finished" product. 



 

But, hasn't the game been playable like forever?

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

People still pour money into this?
