Here for some laughs. Epic is coming guys!

Quote from: Pogosan
I can't say when yet, but I can tell that nothing was abandoned or cancelled and is still very much a desired goal

We discuss Epic internally, we love the idea but we need to be realistic about the deliverables in the short and mid term. It is not forgotten, but the shape, name and exact format to which it may take form in the furture will need to be thought about very very carefully

we definitely want to have it in the game, but can't say much about it until we're sure the team can handle such huge task

Don't quote me on this guys but I heard that in 6 months they plan to tell us if they will consider considering a variation on a loose concept based off the original plans for epic.

 :lol: honestly at all who spent their money and time for nothing :mrgreen:
Honestly, from the very beginning I was highly skeptical about this project. Some friends of mine know my thoughts, but I never expressed them on forums to do no harm with starting the pointless forum wars. My main suspicion was - how many things and features donkey team could carry out of those that they have announced in this topic. I mean, as an artistic person irl, I know that many things you imagine to do when you start your project, then drop off simply because you have not enough skill/time/budget/patience to do them all. So, there is (not always) a huge difference between your initial idea, and the final result.

I can only guess, but I think OKAM ended up the way it is because of some issues with the sponsor. For me, the game failed and died the moment Donkeys left. But here's the thing: without sponsoring, DC would probably never get even this far. But with sponsoring, we have the current situation. Of course we can bring up what ifs and talk about how it should be done and how it could be perfect, but it's never perfect and all you can do now is learn from mistakes. If someone is still grieving after their 20 yuros or whatever it was, think about Donkeys and how they lost years of their work only to become "minor shareholders" of their own product.

16 dollars for your time spent in cRPG leeching like a loser. Not sad about that part but I would be if I backed the game up when you could invest as an investor, before the KS campaign.

I mean even if the info came out that Warlock Wireless was the majority owner, they would've said "it's just us, they let us run our project as we want". WW probably even told them that. But as with any real world business situation, if you're fucking up you can bet they're gonna step in.

What I wonder right now is why they decided to keep even a small development team working on it. I guess they thought they can still milk some cash off the game, which kinda requires you to give off the impression that the game is still being worked on. If it was me I'd just pull the plug, that game is done for good. As I said before, only a matter of time until the big boy investors look at the red numbers on the chart and see it's not worth it anymore.

OKAM atm feels kinda like a school workshop project you were unable to finish, and you took it home in a really shitty state and your handicapped dad decided to take over so you didn't have to throw away all that work, just to have a shitty crooked birdhouse covered in glue in your backyard.

Anyone still pumping money into OKAM dev. time is clearly out of touch with reality if he / they hope to see profit from it.

Some sick, twisted, and masochistic part of me is still hoping for the epic.

Don't get me wrong though I would rather play CRPG by a mile and am just waiting for chadz to patch the game like he said he would or give Dupre control.
