It's nothing you guys did specifically. You followed industry standard really. It's just the new norm.

Yeah man, I really hate this "pledge ahead of time, pay at a set time or you'll never have another chance to buy this" culture that is taking over games.

The other option is for the physical product to simply not exist. The Founder's Edition is limited because they cost a bunch of money to produce and we don't really make much on them.

Not everyone is made out of fucking money and can make a six month ahead of time frivolous financial decision.

Okay, now apply this logic from our perspective and try to understand why we only made as many as we knew we were going to sell. :dukecigar:

Some people have no clue, how much it cost to produce a box like this in smaller quantities. To pay, last time i researched for something like this, $200 for the glass master, and something around $1 per copy. Plus Printing for manual and box, packaging, and in the case of the founders edition the toys. In the end, you are in risk of losing a lot of cash, if it didn't work.
I think everything is okay with this. No matter what, there will always be someone who can not afford or plan to have the money, simply as that. And in the case of the FE nothing was charged at order, we had to pay now, when the release date is fixed.

Yeah I wouldn't bother with physical copies tbh. Not only is there the risk of losing money, but it's a distraction and could take time away from developing the game for something that's a different kind of business.

I just canceled mine, so there's another one potentially available.

Read my following posts. I know how it works.

It was the job of a publisher to front this kind of money at one time. Not sure what publishers really even do anymore except make zillions of dollars off other people's work.

Fronting money, setting (and enforcing) timetables, manning the PR cannons, talking to other human beings and other things programmers are historically famously bad at.

The difference between a publisher and a pimp?

Yes, that's how we were able to afford to produce 500 copies with actual properly designed and manufactured items. :dukecigar:

I bought the early access does that mean I still get the full version next week?

I'll be on vacation though.

Yes, buying Early Access of any Steam title always gives you the final game

But please, don't forget the guys that bought the 3DR version. And we hope to also receive game updates in a timely manner. It's understandable Steam will always be first, but it'd be nice if it didn't take weeks for the 3DR release to catch up.

For now, I'll settle for IF being available on the 3DR website on Aug 15 (provided that's still the release date). Otherwise I will probably go bonkers.

I wanted to ask, will Ion fury support texture filtering? I prefer the smooth graphics, so I ask before I buy.

I know I will keep the 3DR website open at work on Friday just to make sure I am not missing the release.

At least for me this is a lot bigger as if World Tour and Sigil had been published together.

Because people like the content they produce?

Nah dude, those two guys are really cool and make fun and informative vids. They're not like the standard shitheaded "influencers," they do it for the passion. :dukecigar:

I like Civvie's style in general. His complete destruction of Bill Shatner's Tek War is absolutely brilliant. But he is funnier if he doesn't like a game. I strongly assume he'll enjoy IF, though. He'd better.

Civvie and LGR are both really talented, and creating video reviews or features will help ensure that Ion Fury reaches a larger audience.

It's kind of hard to believe this releases this week. It's been a long time coming, but I know it's going to be worth it. Can't wait!
