On my wishlist, but glad I didn't get it, probably should remove it, if its now dead in the water.

Yeah, the "we decided to start over, completely" is very disconcerting...

I'm never a fan of people preemptively declaring games dead, it always seem like people delighting in others failures and I doubt the devs are feeling great about watching their dreams die, (and already put up with so much crap from us gamers) but even I had to roll my eyes at the CEO update 1 day before a promised release.

Even their messaging wasn't great. you should always be upfront and honest about asking for favors/delivering bad news. Then after you have it out in the open (beta has been delayed guys) try to make it sound better (but only for a few days) or justify it (adding so much cool stuff). Instead they lead off with a little cutesy joke (i have a crazy french accent!!! hahaha!!!!!) which just comes across as insulting to the readers intelligence. (I think we all knew what this message was going to be when it came 1 day before a promised release.)

I haven't bought this yet as I've been burned by EA, but I have been following since it was called Umbra, (which is a pretty big red flag itself) and will continue to keep tabs on it. But based on the vague jargon about creating an 'entire world' rather than a game, the vague excuse of 'unexpected issues', and the vague promise of 'providing the best possible experience' I won't be holding my breath.

But still wish them the best of luck going forward and maybe they can pull a rabbit out of a hat with a great game. their screenshots and gameplay videos have looked gorgeous, I think we can all give them that.

I feel like i was baited , waiting so long and the game is not really started/finished over 3 years .

I wish them success by the way but they need to respect people hope and invest.

lol. I guess you haven't been following the development then. They haven't catered to anything the community has ever said. They spent 3 years ignoring the fact that we existed. It took massive complaining just to get them to write a news update more than once every 3 months.

I could be wrong, but the news updates were quite frequent IMO, you can go check the archives in the steam forums
