Spire of Sorcery seems like it has a similar concept.

Can we lock this thread until there's actually something to say about it? I'm getting sick of seeing these OT bumps.

If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the Gods, and the nights will flame with fire.

Yeah,

So got a backer update the other day with the following video in it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qrtei2lASkM&feature=youtu.be

It's a decent chunk of actual gameplay footage. Game looks pretty functional so far. Complex, which could be good or bad, but functional. And the art all looks quite good.

I'm impressed, I didn't expect to see something so polished looking, especially after it just sort of went away for so long.

Good to see he hasn't given up. It always did smell more to me like someone got in over his head rather than some kind of really poorly executed scam.

Well dang. Good to see he continued working on it. Hopefully this brings eventual fruit.

Something along those lines, yeah. Those dang stretch goals are what did it, I reckon. But dead horses etc.

Well, I'm not going to rehash whether or not this is still a scam (it is; it wasn't even this pair's first failed software company) but I see no reason to think that the new video is anything but fake.

The old videos were absolutely fake, as people uncovered on the forums since this thread was locked:

Quote from: toonguy40
Oh god no.

After seeing this, I can never unsee it, and so I'm going to make this dramatic post about it because I don't think anyone else has mentioned it (if anyone has, I just don't remember and will feel like a massive dork for blowing this already-known information out of proportion).  Get ready fellas:

The Scenario Selection video was faked.

Big shock, I know, most of us have already assumed as much.  Fenicks said the videos were probably made with scripts, yeah?  But for me at least, I still had a sliver of faith that Josh had a working-ish beta two years ago that has just been mired in too many A.I problems to be very playable.  So maybe a few others here still hold that faith, who knows, could just be me being gullible.  So what changed me just now into writing for a couple minutes?

If you wanna figure it out yourself, watch the Scenario Selection video and make sure you're looking at the whole screen while Josh selects his choices.  If you just want me to get to my point:

At the left of the screen is a log of sorts that shows what choices you made.

Problem is, they're not the same choices Josh made.  Only the first one about the elves coincides, otherwise the rest are different.  They don't even seem to follow a pattern.  I know we've had our Danel/Dunel controversy in the past, but this seems like a whole different level of inconsistency than can be explained away with just being a typo, right?

also, josh is apparently in antifa. (ok not really, but it's too long and not worth explaining.)

Would you trade being able to change it for it being fake?
How would you feel if it weren't a choice?

Not saying that it is or it isn't a scam, but how is this relevant about any of this.

also... before decrying this video as fake we should get an analysis of this video, not of some past video, I'm thinking...


Not that I have any faith in this project, mind you, but I found your argument a bit weak, because it did not address current news, and it proceeded to go into politics...

...particularly when you bring it up, but then immediately say it's both not accurate but too complex to actually explain.

If it's not worth explaining, it's not worth mentioning. And that's even before you factor in the "not really" bit.
