well said indeed med, and I fully understand what you mean, yes with a few people working on the game, progress is slow, I for one, don't really care about the information, but a nice vid when you deem the game / build is ready for one would go a long way, but I would like to see the game, as complete and polished as you can make it

I like supporting indie devs, and Crate gets my support through and through

take your time, and don't rush anything, hopefully if more people ask for information, someone can link to that well written post of yours

yes, we do need to remember this game is still very early, and most studios don't give much information on their upcoming games until a lot later in their development cycle

but anyway, I salute you Crate team, I can't wait for the game, but take your time, I know GD will be awesome

Screenshots are not hard to make, and it doesn't need to have anything new on it. Just make a random screenshot. And make a ton of them, we need a fix.

So, that being said, if you feel that we've taken your money and owe you something we're not delivering on, we obviously don't want that and will be happy to grant you a full refund. Just email us at support@crateentertainment.com.
No, of course I don't want my money back. I'm also not asking for more content. I can see where I was unclear about that and gave you the wrong impression, and I apologize for that. I'm also not asking you to hurry up development--I'm happy to wait another three years for a good product.

I'm just asking for information that gives us a general sense of progress, like perhaps a chart that vaguely indicates progress in certain areas, be it design, implementation, testing, that sort of thing. Letting us know when milestones have been hit and when you're hoping to hit the next one. That sort of thing. A very heavily qualified date that you're aiming for for Alpha would probably be nice, as well.

Every so often when I check in, I'll see a dev post that indicates that x is done, working on y now. That's the kind of thing I'd like to see consolidated and posted somewhere prominent.

I get the feeling I've offended you, though, and I apologize for that. I'm still a supporter and a fan and I'm quite content to wait and see what you've got when you're ready to show it. Keep up the good work, gentlemen.

His point is: they won't a solid date give, but will give occasional updates.

They aren't trying to please everyone and that they are making a quality game for an aforementioned chosen demographic.

EDIT: Fair edit, by Med.

The issue as has already pointed out is that it takes time to do what you are asking. As simple as it may seem to be to actually generate the information you are asking for would take time to compile and package together to be web-worthy. At least that's my understanding of things. Crate needs to spend time working on the important things, you know, like developing the game.

Be patient. It'll be worth it.

Can I suggest putting these updates on the Grim Dawn homepage as well as posting to the forums? The last dev update on the site is Nov '11, which doesn't look too good for folks hitting the site for the first time.

They are not donations. We are (those that have paid) buying a product and left to have faith that the company will not fold up before it's finished.

Now, the OP is wrong too however, we are not investors in the company, we (again, those that have made the purchase) have simply bought a product in good faith that it will be delivered.

With that said, that which holds me back from buying the game from them, is lack of milestone information, i.e. when they believe that alpha stage will be hit, be it 4th quarter 2012, or summer 2014 etc.
