Le sigh. This is not a place fo you to advertise or insult people. Technically, no place on this forum is the place for the second.
-GlyphGryph


I don't believe you.

It's beyond me how did you ever get other contributors to go along with this shameless stunt and why would anyone give you their free time and still contribute after this, but I can tell you my contributions were a gift for everyone, not for you to take the credit or make money with.

You are selling what was gifted, it's like taking money from a charity basket.

You don't have my permission to use any of my code for any kind of money related scams like this, and if it was not for me your game would still be glitching instead of animating, remember? You dragged those most insane and embarrassing bugs for years and you still can't fix the simplest of things even after I told you exactly what and where the problems are. So how do you find appropriate to be promising any new features when your game is still randomly freezing and crashing, when you are unable to sort out the bugs in even the most basic and essential parts of the code? How can you promise smarter NPCs when you can not even stop them from crashing the game? How can you promise improved z-levels when you can not even make monsters use stairs properly?

For the last several releases you somehow managed to increase the number of bugs, breaking even those things which were working before. On the other hand, and in the same time, I not only fixed all the bugs, but also rigorously tested, polished and balanced everything to work properly to the smallest details, plus made the game many times faster and smoother, implemented music and sound effects, above ground z-levels and added many other amazing new features, in-game actions and game-play mechanics making whole of the game not only working properly but also richer, more interesting, more tactical, and immensely more enjoyable to play.

I could also make in less than a week, if not just a day, any other of your hopeful dreams that were promised, and I'd do it for free, again many times better than all the money in this world could help Soron, or any one of you clueless wannabe developers, to ever make. So it doesn't really compute why should anyone give you any money for something that is not yours and is so annoyingly broken it's barely playable despite all the time and futile efforts you have already wasted in it. I don't see any reason why would anyone even still play that broken build or place their hopes in an empty promise when there is this available right now and it's for free:

LazyCat, donating to the Kickstarter is optional for people wanting to support the game. No one is obligated to pay money, but a lot of people are willing to. Please don't insult people, we're all friends here and I think that everyone could get further ahead by working with each other instead of fighting.

Edited to remove the advertisement in the quote at least.

Re Homesteader: Are those restricted to "houses", or can they be anything?

(Uh, if I can't have the Combat Monster running around, I'd at least like to update his Lab base to modern spec and let players find it....not sure whether leaving a corpse would be worthwhile.)

They should be "homes", but we're interpreting that very loosely.

Okay I just dropped my $40 into the 'HUNTER Tier' slot on Kickstarter. I'm still not entirely clear on what all the 'reward' part means, or how it's supposed to be followed through.

Anybody know how that works?
“No! I must kill the demons” she shouted
The radio said “No, Rivet. You are the demons”
And then Rivet was a zombie.

Once NPCs work correctly, you'll get to design one that'll show up in the game.

She better be.
7 feet tall, 200 pounds of pure muscle. They call her the Murder Machine.

I was kinda hoping for the fannypack & Snuggie Chainsaw Maniac* from the Draw Your Cataclysms thread.  Pure muscle (=Chunk of Meat) just sits there going rotten.

*Why yes, I do own a copy of Zombies Ate My Neighbors.

Heh. Small world. I know Jordy Lakiere, the artist for the poster, from the Taleworlds forums, which I used to visit back when I was about 13.
Think you can write a good guide to DDA?

I just hope it keeps going at this pace and faster, because stretch goals. Damn this game will be impressive. (Well, more impressive than it already is, hehe)
