The Mandate

Did the devs take the Kickstarter and Greenlight money and run?
What gives with this game? Did it die? The game site and the developer site links are all dead now. They had received over 700k on Kickstarter to make this game as well as untold secondary donations.

WHAT HAPPENED HERE?????

The game's site is still up and running just fine and both the forum and chat seem to be active. I'm not sure what you're talking about mate.

the games design has changed loads.
id take the above comment with a pinch of salt as the dev team has changed drasticly as well.
most of the people thats still active on the forum are of the optermistic type, and the word refund has been thrown around a lot as well.

You have a link? Both the game site and the dev site listed on their Kickstarter page and even on this, the Greenlight site, are both seemingly dead to me. Comes up as a dead link.

I supported the Kickstarter page. Just want to know what's going on. I actually had totally forgotten about this game until today when I happened to watch a video and was like, "Holy $hit, I backed that!". Now, I'm wanting to know what's going on. I was really excited about this game.

On another note, a game recently released looks to do something like this. Just got it while it went into EA. it's called Stellar Tactics and it's really great so far. Granted, it's EA, but it's worth every penny.

Thanks for the link. Not sure why everytime I clicked on their links it just brought up dead pages. This helps. However, yeah, this game has been in pre-pre alpha for over a year now. Getting to be like Star Citizen and their constant demo reel.

Welcome 😃
At least they have a demo reel 😂

But Stellar Tactics has turned out to be quite the gem in the rough

Totally agree. ST is great so far. Granted, it's EA and needs some work and polish but the dev is doing a hell of a job so far. I really like it. It's what I had wished the older Star Wolves games would have been. Nothing like it and, to be honest, it seems I've been waiting forever for a dev to create a game like that.
gatt001 Sep 28, 2016 @ 10:52am 
Snap pal, but ST could turn out to be a good investment
naomha Sep 28, 2016 @ 10:59am 
Indeed
Can't wait, :p

make sure you read the pinned forum post of "ask the devs"
seems that they have watered down the idea that was pitched in KS.

now limited to 1 cap ship and combat takes place on 2d plane, also other planned features have been removed.

i think this may become vapeware very soon as quiet a few backers are rumbling about refunds.

Quite a few indeed. The Kickstarter page is basically half the group backing out or wanting to back out. People don't pay money on Kickstarter to see a combined effort of monetary backing and developer planning to see the idea get flushed down the toilet because the developers got their money in the end.

THIS is why Steam EA games and Kickstarter games need escrowed accounts. Seriously. If this game ever does see the light of day (that's a big IF) there's going to be some serious attitudes with the people that did indeed back this game and some developers going to have to answer to some serious inquiries about the money.

so this game is gonna become... what? a dumbed down version of everything we saw here and the mandate site? will it end up becoming another watered down star wolf clone?

Pretty much. I've been checking weekly still and there's still NOTHING.
