    To be fair he also took as used the code which implemented the idea as it then stood. He clearly states that he is incapable of implementing the game on his own. Yet everyone knows that Fez is a Phil...

    Could you kindly correct the title of this post? I was trying to say Living in Fear instead of simply Living but stupidity intervened.

    Yes, that is my point.

    Regarding Pinsofs other points, I agree that they do not yet have published confirmation.* Personally I believe Pinsofs claims. I believe he has more to lose than to gain...

    As long as you feel that Phil Fish is an authority on Phil Fish, then at least one of his claims should be considered settled.

    I dont think Pinsof meant official watchdog. I assume he meant someone reporting on wrongdoing in the gaming press or in the Indie scene in general, ie an unofficial watchdog resulting from a gaming...

    I have never voiced such an opinion, am unconvinced that it is correct, agree with you when you say that stating it alone adds little to a conversation but at the same time I don't think your metric...

    I think the disabled comments are a dreadful move.

    For starters, until recently it was not possible to discuss this story even in the RPS forums as draconian moderation was in practice here also....

    As a backer I guess youve been following this closer than myself. Any word from the developers on whether they are selling a DRM free version?

    The Kickstarter page says there will be DRM free versions available on GOG and Desura but I cant see any evidence of this being so.

    Anyone know if this is planned in the near future?

    Yeah, Ive nothing against the idea in principle. Im sure it could work if implemented correctly.

    My only point is that its harder to do a game like this well with only one player ship and they...

    I was ok with it when it was announced, the reasons they gave appeared well thought out. Now that I have experienced it for myself though I think it is another misstep and am of the opinion that it...

    I guess that everyone has tried trading with multiple freighters at this stage?

    Also, in case anyone is curious about the depth of the economic simulation, I found a station that was selling food at 20 and simultaneously buying at 33.

    Yeah thats fair enough. Egosoft clearly said they wanted to change the game up a bit to achieve this and I was happy to trust their judgement.

    The way they apparently tried to realise this though...

    This is something that confuses me actually. There appears to be no limit to the amount of cargo the skunk can hold. The only constraint seems to be that it has to come from a crate. At least as far...

    I dunno. Maybe I need to get further into it. The largest fight so far for me was the boarding one. The skunk was able to kill cap ships pretty handily since they have no side turrets. I took one out...

    The combat certainly could be fun with a bit of work, flying around stations while dogfighting could be fantastic. I dont see how you can say that it is currently fun though.
