This post is so ironic that it is sad comedy. Sad for people suckered into buying Pixel Piracy.

I was kinda scared about buying this game, but then I saw the frequent update posts, and that had me sold! Keep working really hard, we're thankful! And don't let anyone stop you!

I was on the fence about buying this game but you guys seem to truely care for your game, company, reputation and the direction of early access and the industry as a whole. Ill be picking this up soon.

Thanks for the post, guys. Don't like your product myself, but know some friends do. Would love to see them get a finished product. Here's to hoping Valve implements some way to keep moneygrabbers out of the Early Access. Maybe penalize the devs who disappear by taking them to civil court for the exact amount of money people paid Steam for their product (That is the product's full price cost as advertised on Steam) + Valve's administration fees and costs of litigation? Valve probably won't reimburse customers for the bad product they bought, and will most likely still keep it around for other uninformed people to buy, because that's what they've been doing for years now... but still.. You guys are alright. Here's to hoping the plaguecarriers will drop away soon so you can shine in your own right without being overshadowed by a pile of manure.

I really appreciate your stance on this matter, and it is very evident you are not one of those companies, and I want to thank you for that. As a proud owner of Pixel Piracy, I want to say, bravo!

Wow, I've been telling my son something very similar.Were not buying anymore early access or betas for just those reasons your describing. I'm all for helping the little guy but when they take your money, sit on their hands, and let the game start to whither on the gamming vine it's really disheartening. Good on you for speaking out about the way it should be. I'm going to go buy two copies of Pixel Pirates!

I've only invested in two early access games because I've heard of this happening. This game is one of the ones I bought and I'm glad I did. You guys are doing a great job keep it up!
For other games, shame on developers who are scamming people with bad products. However, equal shame on the players who are buying games without doing research about the product they are buying. Two thumbs up for this post

I can honestly say that i get you Alexander and i truly understand the work put behind such. Not many dev's have the stones to put it out like you did in the post! Inspiring, infact - many could learn from a dev like you! Thank you very much. I don't read many posts from early access games but i had to get this, twice even, just to remember there are dev's that are as commited as you are! MUCHLY ABLIGED! Keep up the great work!
