Saw this on my steam page. :/

Checked out the screenshots and description. :)

Read the comments. x_X

Seriously, blaming this on miscommunication is a bit of a misnomer, right? No amount of communication can prevent you from running out of money about 1/10th of the way through your development plan.

The reason early access games worked before was that people didn't know what it was - the idea had no history, so people bought in if they thought it was cool.

Then developers like you happened, tarnishing the idea of early access and burning countless buyers.

And even now there is probably a development team looking at some of the early greats and thinking "This could work!", only to run out of money because people understandably do no longer want to throw their money into the void of Early Access. :(

Well DF, don't expect me to kickstart you ever again or to buy any of your games again. DFA/BA is a mess with the whole financial issue and the episode BS ... DF9 is also a joke .. i can predict now what a mess MC will be which I kickstarted .. I'm such an idiot.

the road to 1.0 is paved with bad intentions

"So what you are saying is that you abandon the game and expect modders to complete it for you. That's just bad."

Yet Bethesda has done that for every Elder Scrolls after Morrowind, less features because they know the modders will fill in the gaps and restore stripped out features.

Completely dissapointed with this game. The original Sims has more depth.

All in all, kind of sad to see how Double Fine has been treating their customers recently, between SpaceBase being abandoned and Broken Age still missing the second half a game. Hopefully Massive Chalice doesn't go the same way, but otherwise it definitly leaves a bad taste of miss management from Double Fine and gives a bad example of how "Early Access" can end up being.

This being abandoned will probably turn people off of doing anything "Early Access" with Double Fine. .. If Early Access is done properly it can be good both for the dev and consumer, but if miss managed / miss handled it can be really bad for both.

What the♥♥♥♥♥♥ how?!
Holy crap there was like 6 main alpha updates spanding over a year and the game is being finished off?
How did they not make money from this? The game isn't even that complex, it costs a fortune ($25) and i've seen a single developer make more impressive stuff without making squat. I legit have no idea how they got themselves into losing money from this, i'm not even sure if I believe that it is true.

They seriously must have paid a team of 10 to drink coffee all day, it's the only thing i can think of.
