I have played 0 zero hours as I did not spend the money needed to get the alpha.  I would be happy to play the alpha for 50 hours and call it a deal if that was offered.

Secondly the reason that developers set dates and expectations is specifically to get things done.  He set the dates and expectations as an expert in his field.  If he's over his head and it will takes years more to develop, then there needs to be a discussion, not silence.

I agree.  I've really enjoyed the game as is, and I expect it will only get better as more pieces of it get completed.

I bought the game last year but didn't kickstart it. It is hard to know how close the game is to completion but I have already played it for 50+ hours. So I feel pretty satisfied with the price I paid. I get that there are a lot of people frustrated but making a strategy game is hard--I should know because I've made none. I get the sense that the hold up we are experiencing now has to do with endgame mechanics or victory conditions. Can you imagine how long testing that stuff takes?

See dancingbogman, the difference between what you're talking about and what I'm talking about is that he received approx. $96,000 (after KS fees) to build what he proposed to the backers.  The expected completion date was supposed to be in 2014.   he received a lot more money than he asked for and he picked the completion date.  We are now in 2016 with no known completion date and no idea how that money was spent.

By accepting the money, he made an agreement with us and there should be accountability for that. 

Now, if this was a flash game on kong, then whatever.  Free is free and you can't complain

I didn't give him money, but if I did, I would feel differently than your post.

Based on the attention to detail (tooltips, clan traits, theme, music) in this game it seems to me that At the Gates is something Jon cares deeply about. It will be finished and released. There are lots of reasons why someone might not want to communicate. Personally I would prefer Jon not give updates and either work on the game or take a break from it if it's getting to be more of a chore than a passion for him.

has not updated the build since February

Internal code show March 5th.  Still bad, but not as bad as Feb.  ;)

Code: [Select]
Log.WriteLine(LogType.Program, "GAME VERSION : ".PadLeft(19) + GAME.Version + "-2016 March 5");

in this day and age, unless he's living in a cave or laid up in the hospital, there's no reason why he can't take 5 minutes out of his busy schedule each week to post something or at least have a moderator post something.

The fact that he does not communicate and has not updated the build since March 5th tells me that the project has most likely been cancelled or put aside indefinitely and he's too much of a coward to tell us that he's failed.
