I can't imagine they are going to get too many more people buying the game ever, unless this turns out to be the greatest game of all time. I bought it and played it like an hour, then decided to wait for an update before I sunk any time into it. I don't even know if I'll be able to remember my account info. --- "Are you going to buy this time? Or are you still just curious?"

Every now and then, they'll release some information about what they "plan" to do. It might get a few more people excited, and get a few more sales, but this game isn't ever going to be finished.. --- http://penguinpetes.com/gallery/MyWalls/pigeon_chess.png
I haven't really been following the story or anything, but I think this is the first trailer or improvement plans they've released since they stopped all communication a year ago?

I kinda gave up on the game, honestly. It's the sort of thing I might look back into a few years down the line if they ever, EVER say they've "Finished" it and plan to release something officially.
I bought it after the last update thinking it might have a future, and a year of waiting with just so much as a single "Yeah we're still alive and working on it" mention taking months and months to get posted has made me lose interest.
The series, I believe it was Penny Arcade does, called "Extra Credits" did a video on Early Access/Alpha buyer/etc releases very recently. The video does an excellent job at covering the issues of this system, and a game like Cube World is a good example of a game people will buy into with hype, play for a few weeks, and then COMPLETELY forget about because they get burned out on an incomplete product:
With my time in Cube World, I'd have argued it's very arguably imbalanced and simply too slow paced and content lacking to be enjoyable. I played long enough to upgrade a couple skills and get a Hang Glider and then was bored to tears (Which mind you, getting that far took a good dozen or two hours). --- PC: http://i.imgur.com/zgyKBAY.jpg
