Is it safe to assume that the Cube World guy took the money and ran?

I told my brother not to buy the game, but he insisted.

Months after it became purchasable, neither of the developers have said a word. Their website hasn't been touched. Nothing.

Safe to assume this guy isn't coming back?

Edit: It even looks like he froze the forums, because nothing new has been posted in 4 months.

lol, what a scumbag.

It's two people (a man and his wife) and that's it.... I actually had to look it up since I had no idea what the hell you were talking about.

Ah, it's good to see that he has actually said something and that he has gone months without updating fans before.

Not the best way to handle it, IMO, but I guess that is how he likes to do things.

Chances are, this guy is not really equipped to handle all the inquiries he's getting. Also, who would DDoS an indie developer trying to sell a game?

A simple google inquiry would have shown you this answer.

Oh, lets not forget on the website, when hovering your mouse over the "BUY" button, he had a paragraph stating that what you were buying was literally a basic product. A demo of sorts.

This product he went on to state was created by himself and his wife ONLY.

In what world does a two person team have the ability to run their whole website AND make a game AND talk to their fans AND live their NORMAL LIFE?

The answer is no world.

Yea, it's pretty sad that someone would do something so stupid for no reason.

I don't think the guy needs to answer every little thing. Just a tweet every week or two saying "we're still working on an update."

I'm well aware of what it says, but selling something to people and then not saying a word about it for 3 months is a pretty terrible way to handle things.

I had to re-read that twice before I realized you were talking about the DDoS.

I think it's time for bed.

Why would he tweet that?

Big game companies don't even let you know that much usually.

Do you see Ubisoft letting you know,

"Storyboarding complete! Now going to make models for Act 2!" on Twitter?
