Pretty sure it's all of the above + they then have a third-party to blame when ToW sucks

I think SC has been the industry joke for a long while now. As you say, they have zero incentive to finish the game now since their funding model is predicated on selling expensive ships to 'fund development'. Obviously that's not possible if you've released a finished product. So as long as they introduce just enough content to keep the players appeased, talk about how [insert made up tech word] is limiting their expansion but how [insert made up tech word] will save them soon, and more importantly: keep making JPEGS and ships - then I think enough whales will keep the show going. The thing is: the fanbase simply don't care that it's barely playable so long as they can collect a fleet of cool looking ships and fly around feeling superior to everyone else.

From that eurogame article's comments:

@irettlav Exactly, this is not a textbook example of "feature creep", to call it that is an injustice to all those people who've been in those meetings where real feature creep occurs. This is a scam and like you say, it's evolved into that. They could easily release this game with the funding they've received, I just picture a board-room full of execs all laughing to themselves as they plot their next marketing ploy.

I can't say I've had any interest in this game as this genre isn't for me at all but it's sad to see that something done to this extent that is conning consumers. I'll see you again in a year after they've raked in another $100m from the poor suckers with their imaginary spaceships.

@NULL-PTR Iíve worked in software development for neary 20 years and I know vapourware when I see it. It sounds like youíve been convinced by these scam artists, I hope you havenít thrown too much money their way.

And a good summary video from December:

It's encouraging too see more and more calling out CIG and SC for the scam it's become (since Bootcha has either halted or slowed up his "Sunk Cost Galaxy" video exposť series) . Certainly CRob could have just worked on making an updated sq42/wc type of game soon after the kickstarter. Frontier stopped crowdfunding for ED after their kickstarter and just worked on finishing the first version of the game. But now SC is a runaway ponzi, an unstable collection of techdemos, and may never truly end I'm guessing unless that lawsuit website gains enough traction and the FTC or other feds gets involved somehow to stop CIG's predatory crowdfunding, but then the whole thing dies immediately if they can't sell ships anymore, right? because 350 million has mostly been squandered or embezzled for personal lifesytles already(?)

Anyways, ED: Odyssey's pre-alpha phase launch starts in about 9 hours. ( And , imo, it's going to be a serious blow to the shitizen delusion as more abandon supporting it and flock over to ED:O. I'll do my own little reporting posts in the ED subcategory here this coming week, o7.

Not sure where this should go but it was recommend somehow, very much reminds me of the CI emails.

This would be a good meme with some editing.

It's finally here! The fpv "starport tour" walkthrough station lounges, npc vendors and counters and optional interactivity, working elevators, beautiful view of one's ship in the hangar from fpv. Great sound work by Frontier as always. o7

I can't wait to see how this FireSprite stuff plays out. I can imagine a few reasons why they might have done it:
  • FireSprite have expertise / technology which CIG can benefit from to get ToW done
  • CIG want ToW released as a separate game - doing so at arms length via FireSprite avoids some of the negative associations with SC and gives them an excuse for shafting backers
  • CIG are too incompetent to make it work so they need help from devs who actually know what they're doing

Making such cooperations publics to me only sounds akin to pump'n'dump cooperation news.
But i'm a jaded asshole in such regards who only asks who wins more by that - a small studio with their biggest accomplishment being former Psygnosis devs, or the big studio without anything under their belt who solely survive on make believe...
