Thanks a bunch.

Only have 4hrs in current game and not sure why all the negative reviews. I like shooting stuff with shotgun and started building a base. Considering the price i don't really see the hate.
I agree with Sleepyz, and I'm at 1300+ hours = )

I agree. I don't understand the negative review :_
Negative Early Access reviews tend to be from people expecting a finished product, who ignored the warning label on the store page.

In this case no I would normally agree but, this game has a bit of backstory behind it which make people crap all over it.

I liked the game with what I played of it i'm just waiting for it to get a bit more polished.
i have high hopes for this one!

You don't know what your talking about. This game was a spin off to develope "The Repopulation" after jerking people around for a year and selling this game to develope The Repopulation, Above and Beyond tells everyone there is no Repopulation and that they are selling the game back to Idea Fabrik. People were force fed this game instead of what they backed on kickstarter. All of you that are buying this game are going to be in for a shock when its abandoned, or released with a minimum amount of content.

@Skull Punch: Your post is a good example of why some of those negative reviews exist. A lot of reviews have nothing to do with Fragmented at all.

Nobody was ever force fed this game. Fragmented was developed in an effort to generate money to fund a Repopulation port to Unreal Engine after things went south last year to ensure the games survival without having to crowd fund. That's already very well documented I won't rehash it here. Players were given this game for free in compensation for the downtime and to give them something they could play while we worked to get the game back online. With the servers now back online players have access to both games.

Unfortunately it didn't generate enough money to ever get it back into full development, which hurt the development process and was taking longer than expected. After struggling to turn that around for a while we decided to hand over controls to Idea Fabrik as this was the best option for the game at that point. Repop is back online and back in development. You have Fragmented for free.

Unfortunately it didn't generate enough money, and some players were angry about the process from the beginning leaving negative reviews certainly did not help.

You have Fragmented for free. Players were given this game for free in compensation for the downtime. And with the servers back online they kept access to both games.

+1 to the dev!

Hey just asking but how is fragmented's dev going now? I haven't seen much progress the last few months. I understand you guys have been kinda busy with repop and getting that team up to speed. I did like fragmented quite a bit just was curious as to what has been going on.

@Malkano: Most of our energy right now is going towards getting it out on the Xbox and hoping this breathes some life back into the PC servers. The upcoming patch is bug fix heavy and polish related, and does not introduce any new features. There will be a sale this week, so there should be some new faces in game.
