    My dad always used to tell me about some French Jean designer who didn’t have the money to make his product but he had enough to market. He spent all his money on marketing and billboards rather than creating a product, and when the demand for the jeans for really high, he was able to get a loan from the bank to make the jeans. That entire story sounds entirely ridiculous now that I’m older but maybe the day before is a case of that 👀

    It really is amazing how far games have come and how the differences are in the finer details now. I remember the jump from the 16 bit to 32/64 bit era and it was like going from black and white to color. Now the differences between thrown together crap and top notch development is textures, lighting effects, AI, depth of menu options, etc. Honestly, the gameplay trailer didn’t look bad to my boomer eyes (graphically anyway, seemed boring) until Charlie showed the initial trailer.

    I've actually worked on a similar game before. Just like our game, this game seems to gave a ton of really nice assets, but no actual gameplay. Long story short, the investors that put money into these companies are often braindead idiots that don't know how games work, so you can woo them with beautiful models and prerendered cutscenes and they'll throw money at you. But once it comes to creating gameplay, this is usually put to the side because it's more important to show something nice for the next investor meeting.

      The definition of scam is "a dishonest scheme; a fraud." And the definition of fraud is "wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain." So it's not always about money. Sometimes it's for personal reasons. They're promising a specific product, but if it doesn't exist then it's fraudulent.

    I think what happened was they wanted to make this game, so they threw together the initial trailer as a pitch, hoping to get investors or a publisher on board. It generated a ton of buzz, but didn't work, and now they've made all these little trailer videos trying to get anyone to fund the project, but fans wanted gameplay. So they stalled as long as they could so the team they have could throw together this "vertical slice" as a last ditch effort, hoping SOMEONE will see the buzz it's gotten and throw them some money to finally make it.

What that says to me is it was a scam from day one.

  • Veli

    I think what happened was, they released the initial reveal trailer as a proof of concept, to gauge the interest for a project, and then got way too excited trying to deliver on something even a triple A studio would struggle to develop. They set the bar too high for themselves and are now doing this balancing act - trying to capitalize on the fanbase they cultivated, but on a budget that is nowhere near enough, so they keep pushing back the game hoping to salvage the situation.

      EVOLICIOUS Month ago

      @A Ny The fact that no game like that could ever exist. The server space, assets, development cycle, none of which is possible with the modern teams, networking hardware and average consumer hardware we will ever have outside of 30 years into the future with massive scientific breakthroughs in AI networking and computing on both local and commercial scales in the trillions of dollars.
      Star Citizen is the only example of that sort of crowd funding scam, sorta working, and even then, it's still an unplayable mess after 11 years, and is still a mostly empty metaverse.

      EVOLICIOUS Month ago

      Absolutely not. If you are to read their claims, you will find what you typed to be entirely untrue. They made very clear claims that they have a game under development, while showcasing screen shots, before any gameplay YEARS AGO. Which turned out to not resemble anything like the initial gameplay trailers either.

  • blues3531

    Also as far as what its supposed to be - i guess its like a Tarkov type thing where you go into a zone to extract stuff and there are PVE zombies and maybe you run into other squads of people to fight for stuff?

    I do believe there's hope for the game, if this is a rush job, with time actually put in, I can see it going well. They had the atmosphere indoors down really well, I feel like the issue is that it's not quite a full environment. Adding in hordes and real ambience is all that is needed to appear genuine. The textures are bad, but not impossible to improve. They have a good base, all that it needs is polish

    I have some experience in the game industry, and I would say that they intended to release something kind of like the original trailer, but underestimated how difficult it was. They got some nice models and effects, tightly scripted it out (any parts that are not walking simulator totally faked). They ground out the render at like 1fps and thought they had it in the bag. Then the moment the huge variety of systems (e.g. AI, animation, survival systems, narrative, etc) started clashing with each other and the performance requirements, they realized they were toast. If you build things out of off-the-shelf components a lot of them don't play nice with each other. So now they're desperately trying to scrape some kind of playable game together partly for ego and partly so they don't go broke over it.

    I think its a case that people can be ambitious to the point were it becomes delusional. The two bothers believed in their own legends without properly understanding the weight of what they were taking on. Sadly this is rife in the gaming industry.

    What I think is that they're doing what I did when I was an indie developer: get too excited about the idea of a game, start making devlogs to gather hype thinking I could fulfill promises I was too early in development to achieve, throw shit together trying to maintain the fanbase I created and was now afraid to loose incase they'd never come back.
    Note to developers: just don't make promises until you are chin deep into development. you'll save yourself a lot of stress.
    edit: i misspelled lose but im going to keep it like that just to annoy nerds who correct grammar on social media posts :)

      @Brain It's not. You are thinking about Apeiron, it's true, they were working on a remake and got a C&D. The ones I'm talking about are not remaking the game, but a are making a series with episodes and shit. And after 2 years of trailers and promises and hype they haven't released a single episode and nobody knows nothing about them cause they haven't posted a single update

    So during “development” the company Fantastic created a platform that allows people to work remotely (like during Covid) called Continent and some speculate that they used the game as a marketing strategy saying “our platform is so sophisticated you could make a video game with tons of different people working together”

    My guess as to why the game has been advertised and made without any preorder or Kickstarter yet is either like Charlie said to lie to investors or that they are planning to create a Kickstarter for this game after attempting to build some hype and then take people's money and run with it.

    When I first saw this I thought it'd be pretty cool (I've played both last of us games and this gave me similar vibes while still going in a different direction) but seeing this makes me think it's like a bootleg version of those games which are absolutely beautiful and very well constructed. And when he read the comment of it being the shifty version of The Division that's true. A dollar tree version if The Last of Us met The Division.

    All I can assume (Judging from my 2 years of being in the game dev industry) is that they're going to/ already have, done this as a marketing campaign for a product which didn't exist, but now their bargaining chip to publishers and investors is "We have a potential reach of millions, we're the most wishlisted game on steam". And they're using that to hopefully ACTUALLY start the development of the title by hiring a team to work on the project, as the actual studio is/ was just 2 people not long ago.

      Your average unity asset flip has as much unique charm as even this glorified short animated film. I swear, there has to be some kinda embargo on these brown and grey zombie "survival" "games" being continually sharted out to just disappoint as the genre deteriorates like a biologically realistic zombie under the sun. And insult to injury that the "game" may be vaporware anyway. Double kill of disappointment for anyone who was fooled into this hype that hopefully nobody forgets after like, two months.
