    I am absolutely baffled as to why Indivisible only has like a week left and still needs about half its funding. The game has a playable prototype for you to download, and the developer has already put out a product (Skullgirls and its DLC after the mess with Konami).

    1.5 million is a lot of money

    Doesnt 750 mean they get another month though?

    Nooooooo

    Do you not like LiS or just think it doesn't need a sequel?

    I mean, I feel the same way. I just wasn't sure how to read BD's reaction.

    They dont need to do anything more with those characters

    They aren't?
    We've known that Dontnod wants to do a second season/sequel for a while now, with co-Game Director and Art Director Michel Koch stating that they'd probably use an all-new cast if there were to be a follow-up.

    It'll be a similar game I'm sure

    teenager problems with some weird supernatural mystery

    Given how much I love LiS, I'll play those as long as they make them

    If it's a "sequel" in the sense that it's a new and separate adventure game in the same universe, I'm totally cool with that, because we need some real competition to Telltale and these guys can totally do that. Otherwise, I agree with everyone here that the specific story in LiS needs no follow-ups (and I haven't even finished it yet).

    Okay, it's more like a spiritual sequel.

    I'm back on board.

    The first game is Degrassi and Twin Peaks

    Alright, let's spin the Teen Drama + Weird/Sci-Fi wheels...

    The OC

    and...

    Farscape

    That said I'd actually love more chloe/max stuff, especially if it explored their relationship more

    but it certainly doesn't *need* to happen, no

    does life is strange end with a character saying "I guess life... is strange"

    I dunno, but the new Tomb Raider had damn well better end with someone commenting "We've just witnessed the rise... of the Tomb Raider."

    I still can't fucking believe that the last line of sleeping dogs was "leave him be" and not "let sleeping dogs lie"

    I think this sort of thing has been joked about so much these days that devs are fuckin' scared of actually going for it.

    I love when dogs sleep with their tongues sticking out and also sometimes when my dog sleeps on his back with legs up, pawing the air

    I had a dog who slept with her tongue sticking out all the time and it would get all dry and weird and she'd get confused by it

    I love when dogs seem to lose the concept of their bodies as a cohesive whole. Sometimes when I'd wrestle with my dog, he'd get confused and end up gnawing on his own leg, like Ed in The Lion King.

    god i hope this game gets made

    Same reason it's hard to get funding for movies not based on established franchises or sequels. People are hesitant to invest in new things.

  • Mr. GMr. G Registered User regular
    They're also asking for like, twice as much money as most crowdfunded games

    Amplitude BARELY got across the finish line for half of what Indivisible was asking

    Yeah, I mean, the two main reasons Broken Age got as much as it did were that a) it was fuckin' Double Fine back when they were everybody's darling developer and b) it was long before anyone was cynical about (and feeling burnout toward) Kickstarters.

    It is kind of frustrating to watch an indie gogo do everything right and still barely squeeze by

    Kickstarter fatigue has definitely set in by this point.

  • ChincymcchillaChincymcchilla Registered User regular
    They are asking for much, much more money than most people are used to seeing for a kickstarter

    And people still have no idea hoe much it costs to make games

    I feel like every day a new person on my facebook accuses a dev of being lazy for not doing something that would cost an insane amount of money

    Today it turns out that bathesda has no excise to ever have any bugs because they have sooooo much money they can throw infinite testers at it

    It didnt help that they were honest about when it was coming out

  • Mr. GMr. G Registered User regular
    It seems like a case of expecting too much of your audience?

    Like, I think they have all the eyes on Indivisible of the people that would want Indivisible

    There aren't enough of those people to get them 1.5 million dollars

    6F32U1X.png
  • ChincymcchillaChincymcchilla Registered User regular
    I'm gonna be honest, I was going to fund it until I played the demo

    I feel bad but I'm not going to fund something I can't play

    How much money do I have to give them to have them add feathers? I'm thinking of taking up donations.

    I watched some folks play Moon Hunters at PAX. It looks pretty incredible, although I still am not quite sure what the whole premise of the game is. It looks like it maybe could be a roguelike?
    edit - Apparently Im terrible at inserting stuff in BB Code now and cant throw the link in

    Actually $1,000,000.50 would be a much easier ask. WTH Lenny?
