Kaspal, I just have to say I really appreciate that you are, or were, holding off spending your hard earned points for our game. It's more than we ever could have hoped or asked for. If we have taken too long, it is unfortunate if we were to lose your support, but please realize (not that you don't, but for anyone who may be reading) each decision we have made, including posting what we thought to be the release date of the game, has always been in the best interest of the game and in the best interest of getting the game done and delivered in the highest quality possible by our two-man team. The release dates were never a joke to us. We still hope to not disappoint upon actual release. We know that nobody else can see whether or not these decisions are good ones, only we can. So unfortunately you have to talk our word on it. In the end, the game should speak for itself.
when you post videos, pix and release dates of a game, you're creatin hype... the very concept of your game, got me really hyped... so much that when the community games were first released, i bough 4000 MSPs just to get some of those, yours included.
when it got delayed the 1st time (sayin it 'd be out 20 days later) i said: its ok, i can take it, and shit happens.
when you delayed somethin like 10-15 more days, i didnt mind, cuz i was on vcations so i didnt even had the console with me.
you delayed it once more, but my X360 was dead (one nasty error i got sorted out later), so i was thinkin on buyin a arcade console to conserve the ones i already bought and yours that was scheduled to be released then in feb... you dont know, but i can assure you that when i got (FINALLY) my console repaired, the 1st thing i did (besides tryin it out once again, to see that everyhing was ok... and play some Castle Crashers too
) was to check if your game has been released already. to my surprise, it got delayed ONCE MORE!!!
bought another 4000 MSPs (cuz i wanted to buy your game, and some others that i had in queue, like Alien Homminid and R-Type), so again i told myself "its ok... if they're holding it to add better stuff and make a better experience for the game, its ok with me... lets hope this time they DO release it in march".
i think you read my comments about your delays in march.
now, delayin it ONCE AGAIN just gets annoying for me... i'd say i wont play your game ever, but thats a lie, cuz im hyped, and when it comes to shmups, if they are any good, i like to support devs. but trust me, i rather wait til you say "hey guys, its done!", than havin this nonsensical release date monthly change, that really gets on my nerves.
for stuff like that, i didnt buy Nanostray 2, even tho, i saw it on stores a couple times. not like they miss my 2 cents... but thats just the way it is with me. a lil childish some might say, may be so... but again, thats just me.... i dont like devs playin with me, by hyping me, and making me feel like a thirsty lad begging for a cup of water in the middle of the desert.
EDIT: i got one sugestion for you. since you're still devvin' the game, you can add a feature that will keep count of the ammount of time played on the game, so when you reach 1 hour of total play time in the demo, the demo stops runnin, and i can send you a big SCREW YOU GUYS over the net.
PS: yep... im pissed, and i needed to let it out.
