My point was really time.  10 hours for act 1 means a single game played full through could take days or weeks.  This is fine if you're doing the game in a grand strategy style like crusader kings or Victoria. 

However, Jon doesn't have the manpower to do something like this. 

so I'd like to comment on a few items here.

 "I'll be active again here and on Twitter so if you have any questions (or justified rants) I'll be around to answer them."  So despite being one of the more vocal members of this and the KS forum, you have never once engaged me directly either on a forum or privately.   Does this update me you will start to communicate with me? 

Secondly, I requested on KS that you open up the beta testing to all backers, as I think we're well past the expectations for those who contributed more.  As someone with over 2,000 hours on Civ 5 and many more hours on Civ 4 I think I could positively contribute if I had access to the game.

finally, "Instead of just migrating around the map for ten hours as resources run out all around you, roughly a third of the way in you'll start to settle down before building a secure kingdom and eventually confronting the Romans directly." 

ok so wandering around the map for 10 hours foraging sounds a bit excessive and boring.  I suggest you immediately do away with that nonsense. 

Is this game going to be like Civ 5 whereby the routine decisions are simplified and made for you or is it going to be more of a paradox Grand Strategy game?  Either way, I would like some clarification on establishing a kingdom and how it will work?  we are playing as Scandinavian peoples that have gone though a forced migration west due to the Huns and have ended up in Roman controlled lands.  Some end up being Roman soldiers, some are in regular conflict with the  Romans, and some are fighting each other.  The common thread that they share is war and it took approx. 1,000 years for Rome to finally fall.  How do you plan to reconcile and integrate the politics and cultural issues involved in getting these people to work together as a common nation against Rome?

Hi everyone, I am also newbie here.

This is a failed game on a dead forum.  Welcome

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

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

which was supposed to be july 31st.  That's the point of deadlines is that you release on that date, not weeks or months later with an apology.  A professional would mention ahead of time that the deadline would not be met, but he's not a professional so

what gave you the idea that Jon would actually meet the milestone?

You tell me where I'm wrong and I'll correct it .  Otherwise stop supporting bad behavior.

Gene the man left a job that had health insurance and asked for this project.  He received 2.5 x more money than he asked for (100k vs. 40k) Don't talk to me about not having health insurance when he could and should have planned to carry insurance as part of the business plan.   

Secondly, he has been either non responsive or had flat out lied repeatedly over the last 2.5 years since he released the alpha.  If fact, he just lied again 6 weeks ago declaring he would start updating us every "few weeks" when in fact he has done no communicating.  The fact that Jon,  a man who makes his living on a computer, cannot spend 5 minutes a week to post on any public forum, shows that he's either hiding something or not telling the truth.

When Jon wants to start acting like a responsible adult, I will give him some respect.  Until then, there will be no slack

Yes those cripling health issues like 6 months for a broken rib and " mental health issues" lasting 2 1/2 years.   Got it he's too frail to work on our project but good enough for paradox .

He looks like someone who is relieved to move on from the pesky backers who expect something for our money

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

lol good luck on a refund.  Jon was lying about that like everything else.   Why a reputable company like paradox would hire this loser is beyond me.  I give it 1 year before they throw him out

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

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

The game will never be complete as long as Jon is in charge.  He's the creative type with no understanding of structure. No detail is too small no Amount of time too much

 Until someone with good management and communication skills takes charge, this will simply continue to spin in circles until he gives up and closes down the project
