"ACHIEVED!! ,000 - FANFIC TORTURE. If ,000 is raised, I will film a dramatic reading of my WWF/Sailor Moon fanfic and upload it to Youtube for all to see. (Please don't make me do this EDIT: Goddamn it, guys. See you on Youtube.)"
Vat der hay?
And stars for evil, of course. On the up side, once Kickstarter found out that this was basically a guide to rape, they yanked the whole mess and made a charitable donation to RAINN, an anti-violence against women charity.
Unfortunately, the money went through, so I guess the book will be funded. Or the guy will take the money and run.

This world is broken. I had already gutted and replaced Myth 2's graphical infrastructure (including trees rocks ambient life spells explosions smoke etc) with higher quality/higher resolution assets. Totally re-rendered (from the original source material for the models) all 40-something units and put them in the game.
The kickstarter was a total flop. And this kinda shit gets funded.
All I need now is some whiskey and a gun, my dear.
PS believe it or not rockstar executives saw the kickstarter AFTER it had failed and have since been in contact with me. nothing solid so far but they said "after the team is done finalizing gta V we can spare a few heads to see what you made".
I could still be cut out of any kind of monetary loop, I dont own anything, but it would make sense to keep me around since I know the engine inside and out and I'm probably the best person to lead a team of coders to make the last few engine changes (really doesnt have that far to go, just need to switch out the 8 bit indexed mode for sprites for a system that uses 16, 24 or 32 bit PNGs or TGAs or whatever.
Anyways trying not to hold my breath, would be very easy to have everything taken from me and not have any recourse, but at least i'm talking to someone from goddamned take 2 finally. (they own rockstar)

Whoa, congratulations Gmork. That's really great.
I could be a poetv exhibit. I guess I shouldn't care by this point. I'm not even going to begin to justify or explain the politics surrounding Myth or how i'm perceived in the community, but it definitely is taking most or all of my balls to post this right now.
The teaser trailer:
a couple rotations of models:
All I ask is be merciful :(
Oh man, I played TFL* obsessively back in the day. I would give money to this.
*not that TFL)
Also you're funny looking and your hat is stupid

That's fucking awesome. I played the hell out of the first one and loved it. Got my ass handed to me in multi though :( Never was good with RTS games.
Myth is (currently) famous for having some of the least noob-friendly and vitriolic players ever. Basically the ranked and unranked sections became comingled and the only people who can stand the current atmosphere of regular players are regular players. Noobs get easily turned off by it, and on more than one occasion I've seen forum posts of people who said "man I remembered this game and came back to it but everyone's attitude has changed and they're all assholes" in so many words. I hardly go online anymore - my hope for the future of Myth is an HD reboot that will get a whole new crop of players.
I don't know if people have the patience for learning Myth, it's like fast paced chess where your units explode into bloody chunks and giants kick your dwarves so hard the explosive satchels in their backpack explode and take out the archers standing next to them and then you go WHAT THE FUCK THAT WAS AWESOME BUT I'M DEAD NOW!
And then the Watcher uses his Vortex Purge to direct the cloud of swirling, spinning body parts swords and armor pieces that encircle him at your remaining troops and they get shredded and battered by the awesome physics of an RTS game way fucking ahead of its time.
Your Tom Waits quote did not escape me, Gmork.

Oh fucking hell, as soon as its done being funded the Kickstarter support decides to delete the damn thing, and even the Wayback Machine is failing me

Given how 99% of Kickstarter is bilking money from people who don't deserve it, a PUA kickstarter only seemed natural.

"Donít ask for permission, GRAB HER HAND, and put it right on your dick.Ē
It's no "Point to schlong" but I guess he's just starting out...
