Heh - I come here for an update and I find that!
It was almost certainly me complaining on RPS and it wasn't n months - in 3 weeks it will be TWO YEARS since I bought into the beta and I was far from an early adopter IIRC!?
I'm all for QCF "getting it right" but I feel we were misled upfront. If people realised they were buying into a TWO YEAR beta during which they'd only have access to a browser-embedded/online required version, I think fewer people would have joined-in.
It's great that you got the support you needed to polish-the-hell out of DD, but when you ask for money you inherit an obligation to deliver something. You can continue polishing it as long as you like, but give your customers a version of the game they can play without being online and outside of a browser before the end of the decade eh?
I echo your comments TRJP, I started another thread which goes along similar lines and I've also been waiting over 2 years, you'll no doubt see the thread in this part of the forum.
Every time I check the news there never seems to be light at the end of the tunnel... just another update saying more polish and in a lot of cases plans for more artwork and refinements.
I imagine the game will release at some point.. just no idea when. I also feel mislead, and I have gone into that in the other thread and had response from the Devs. Sadly this has been a wholly un-fulfilling experience this, even though I am looking forward to getting my hands on the final product.
