It happened because the large donations that put them over the goal happened to be by the "devs" themselves

There were people on this board who couldn't figure out this was a scam from day one.
AAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHH

If Sergey Titov's name pops up, I won't be surprised.

A team that has no rights to the STALKER franchise has been claiming they're building a spiritual successor to the series.

However, they only have concept art. They've never showed any gameplay and have attempted to pass off Unity as their proprietary engine. They wanted $50,000 to build a multiplatform game, including a Wii U release.

Look at this smug bastard.

50k was never enough to make an AAA game for all modern consoles. I dunno what the devs were smoking when they made that number. They deserve all the hate they got for all this dodging of questions and for using random images as their game material.

Apparently it was funding to get a simple demo off the ground to attract real investors.

However, they were not upfront about this. True or false, it looks bad.

And is.



Ha.
