Scrapping it? no, but if they don't get funding of some kind then it's probably going to take them 10 years to release this, lol. They need the funding so they can work full-time on the game as a team, without it they will just be stuck doing it as a part-time hobby.

People often underestimate what a team of select very skilled people (which seems to be the forte of these guys) can do as a hobby, especially if they like what they are doing.

Imagine you were good at painting, how many good works would you be sitting on top of if you invested all your time playing cRPG into painting.

Could probably claim dibs on that engine and then sell it out to other developers and make an assload of money that way.

This looks awesome. Awesome enough to be something I would pay money for.

Looks pretty cool. I can see myself playing that if they fix some combat animations and put more depth into it as well. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll donate until they add some more stuff to it and release another video.

The point is that there are no combat animations, which makes the whole "drunk fight" feeling very complicated to fix.

I get that it's the physics, but it just looks exaggerated. Mostly with the torso movement.

Anyways, think ill be donating to this. I wish I had more money, some of the thing for the pledges sounds interesting.

It is still pre-alpha, hopefully it will improve a bit as they continue developing it.
Anyway, pledged for it already a few days ago, it looks very good

Yes, but as this is taken from their kickstarter page

"We are a small team of 5 people who have been working in their spare time whenever possible. We are scattered across different cities and even countries. We started work on the game just over a year ago and it's been a difficult journey but we've reached the point where we are able to make it. To complete the game we need to all work full time and together as a team."

They must obviously know it will take way too long long to make if they don't have the ability to work full-time on it as a team. Right now they all probably have their own jobs and families to deal with, they can't just work on the game like a cRPG no-lifer lol. Making a game, especially a good game, takes alot of work and alot of time. A 5 person part-time  team is not going to be making any awesome games in a short amount of time, the longer it takes to make the game, the less relevant it might be upon release, the more dated everything will be etc.

I hope they do have the ability to finish this, but they have made a kickstarter for a good reason.

Yea, it seems they won't go through with it for now if the Kickstarter goal isnt reached.

I went through their forum a bit and found a statement saying that they will refund every paypal-donor in case the kickstarter fails.
Doesnt sound like they are doing it it "either way".
When west germany annexed east germany, nobody moved a finger too.

I wonder how much money has been donated through PayPal now since that number doesn't show up on their kick starter page. If its anything close to the number on kickstarter (doubt it is), they still may get to 150,000.

Damn, I highly doubt they can scrape 116 000 more in 20 days. But if it doesnt get funded, atleast the engine should be sold, it looks pretty capable.

To be fair all they need is a bit of publicity.
And a couple of articles have been written about it already.
Timber and stone, for example, only asking for 50k, but he was 15k in with 1 week to go and he got like 35k in the last 3-4 days because someone posted about it on reddit.
Also, the name is a bad choice in my name, as it means unique in latin, which will filter a lot of google searches for it

Quote from: Bare Mettle Entertainment website
Sui Generis is our first game, an ambitious RPG. We are a year into development and things are going very well. We have not only developed all of the core technologies and prototyped the game, but have developed a truly vast and impressive set of tools to ease development and the content production process. We have tried our hand at everything that we thought could pose a challenge and achieved what we believe are excellent results.

One year of development while still working full-time jobs and they have already made something so awesome... Motherfuckers.

This was amazing. I funded it, and I recommend everyone who has some extra penny gives some to the devs as well.

I, for one, would like to pay for something as amazing as this game.
