Title: Projected Finish Date Please
Post by: shimwooley on December 13, 2016, 01:48:44 PM
 Hey Jon we have all  (well most of us) have been patient and have tried to be kind regarding the delay of the game. It seems to me that you could at least give us a date range when you think the game will be completed. As you know I have sent you 2 e-mails and have not had any response. I'm sorry that you have had some personal issues and I want to believe that your intentions are good, but I spent some hard earned money to buy your game, as many of us did and it just seems fair to let us know whats going on as far as a projected final date. It doesn't need to be an exact date, but anything is better than just sitting around in the dark on this matter. Your response or non-response on this issue will tell me what I need to know.

I also would appreciate some explanation. Just out of courtesy for all those who faithfully contributed.  If there is a serious problem, such as your health or financial status, we can understand.  But to remain totally silent just seems wrong. Personally, I hope that all is well with you, and that you can recover from your present circumstances.  You seem like a very nice, talented person, who had good intentions regarding At The Gates.  Please just let us know.

Two wild ass guesses:

1 - The mystery partner Jon talked about is Paradox.
2 - Jon may be doing some freelancing work for Paradox. 

Those two guesses follow from some of Jon's interactions on Twitter with Paradox staff and the fact that in the next expansion or upgrade of Paradox's Stellaris they adding a mechanic that looks a lot like Civ V social policies, but more thematic, see in link below

We'll always have the alpha version to play with. Its fun, though sad because of the wasted potential. So close to being a complete game...

I Want To Believe, but I think I might have finally gone from Mulder to Scully this week.

My impression is that Jon has invested a lot into this project (both time and money), in addition to the KS money.

So I really hope that this project progresses for his sake as well as ours.

My impression is that he's a liar and a fool.  Oh and also a charlatan

My impression is that he is passionate by this project more than us, and that he wants to  finish it more than us.

I LOVE Jon's style!  I love that I can get this massive rush of expectation and excitement only to have them dashed.

Sort of like when you are just waking up and you get all excited and expectant and then realise it's Monday, and Donald Trump is still President.

Goodgimp you shouldn't defend this fool.  He took 100k and abandoned the project under a series of pathetic excuses and lies

Prove me wrong and I'll Recant it

Charlatan couldnt make alpha as playable as it is.
I can and will wait. Game is still great and hopefully soon will be greater.

Athelas so Jon takes 100k and makes a partially complete alpha 2 years ago.  He sits and does really nothing noteworthy for 2 years, then claims poverty to take a full time job.  By the way, at a company that his project will compete against.  You think paradox didn't have him sign a non compete clause while they employ him?

He got 4 years of spending our money and did not produce any kind of retail product.  If you don't want to use charlatan, then pick another word

The game won't come out unless paradox publishes it

he wasn't given 100K to build an alpha and it's not a good game.  Its a start with limited middle and no end game.

Athelas, I think you should also grow a beard until it comes out.   you and goodgimp will have beards for Christmas

I'm on beard no. 2 right now. The first one didn't work out too well--apparently you are supposed to wash them  occasionally.

Lol

Gone with the wind. Shaved mine last week in Israel, day before a swim/float in the dead sea. Wasnt such a good idea definitely. Puting tiger ointment on your hemorrhoids sounds nice compared to the Dead sea experience.

So, first time after a few years, my beard went away... and ATG still aint here.
