    If this game truly were a mobile game you would have to buy all the parts of your tranny waifu all for 1,99 on the apple store. If you click enough times on the dick, you might get an incline for free.

    No, you'd buy most parts for 1.49 and then you'd have to spend $100 more to loot that dick from the boosters. And it'd only get erect if you charge it with viagra crystals (49.99 for 10000 pack - certainly much cheaper than IRL viagra).

    I'm not quite sure how the kickstarter works if it's used for polishing.
    The amount of the first stretch goal is lower than the designated goal, but you'll still have to reach it first to charge the backers, right?

    By the way my dramacodex sense is tingling, what's with the drama in the comment section? Don't answer that if you don't want to!
    But you should be more careful with your jokes here, else someone will add transphobia and objectifying human genitalia to the list of accusations :roll:.

    It's gonna be somewhat TL;DRish.

    I have a personal trolling mob, lol. So I've been doing my channel for some years and I've been doing it in both russian & english. Since I'm more fluent in russian (obviously) there were much more russian subs and views - something like 23k russian to 2k non-russian.

    Now, mind you, I really dislike the idea of begging for donations so I wasn't looking at this audience for money, that's kinda disgusting for me. But since we're all compatriots, I've just hoped that they'll be eager enough to create some hype for the release of my first game (not this one - the previous one, X Caeli). I mean, for three years I've been doing good content for them so why not?

    Lots of reason why, lol. The flood of shit was unbelievable. It pretty much started here:
    https://youtu.be/Hukoa3gpGlw

    That was a stream and the chat was full of it. And look at the dislikes - my videos have never been collecting that much dislikes before. And then it's almost a hundred.

    And by the time of release it has gotten only worse. Every single loser took revel that the game is supposedly bad, is supposedly a failure and there were crowds and crowds of people in comments wishing to educate me on my failure, willing to explain what a stupid motherfucker I am. Like, honestly, Codex is supposed to be a similar kind of place and yet, in reality, people here are pretty polite. It's clear they were not interested in the project but they've either chosen to stay silent or politely refused (I've asked Infi to make a newspost about us, yes). In Mother Russia, on the other hand...

    So I've decided - fuck it. And I just went all out with the ultimatum for my audience. It's 23k of people - either at least a tiny part of it respects and plays and does some reviews for my projects (I've said that 77 persons could do that, easily) or they are unneeded. We've even released a public demo for this purpose. And, mind you, we were not asking for positive reviews - just to play our demo then play the game (if they liked it) and leave some reviews. Supposedly, that's extortion and blackmailing, lol.

    And sure, some people have bought our game as the "donation". And, actually, much more than I've required. But I'm not sure what the hell is wrong with our country. People are like paralyzed. They want this content but they couldn't even bother to do what I've asked. Like, not even leaving the game in the background for several hours and writing something like "gudgame". Even that is too complex and too hard, apparently.

    But that have birthed a whole wave of revolutionaries. "Nerd has gotten insolent, how dares he demand anything from us?" Well, I dunno, mates, I'm generating this content you're seemingly enjoyed. Maybe you should keep me pleased if you wish to see more. Quid pro quo, it's as simple as that.

    But no, I've got a ton of fuckers who have believed that I owe them for watching me. Literally. That I must be happy as hell that I have their views and that's that. And, also, that I've scammed my audience because I've talked about Fallouts & stuff and, in reality, I've developed a non-Fallout game. That's an insult, lol!

    And part of those revolutionaries is still active - it downvotes any video I make, it post various troll shit from under my name, they've tried to doxx me (that one doesn't work in Russia), etc. And, returning to topic, commenting under every Iratus video that's I'm a nazi (because I don't do russian videos anymore = I hate russians) and a scammer (because X Caeli is a con). That guy from kickstarter is probably one of them. They don't have any proofs, though, so I don't give much fucks - they're just pathetic shitheads and no one cares about those.

    Your audience doesn't owe you jack shit. Now it would've been nice of them to help you out, but you can't be serious about getting mad at them for not willingly shill your game?

    Pretty good.
    Mistakes were made.
    Mutual misunderstanding led to establishment of toxic environment.
    The fact that you stopped producing russian-language content as some sort of retaliation against trolls despite (AFAIK) majority of your audience remaining russian speaking is probably what contributes to % of dislikes.
    Not sure if it can be fixed...

    Well, some sort of popup confirmation might help, considering that you can't reload.

    Dude, it's not like I can't invent the solution. I'm just a freelancer so I can't push whatever I want. This is considered a non-issue so it's not getting touched.

    Pope said a bit more wrong things than just asking to promote game. He said things to russian audience that were a bit controversial. But if he wants to paint picture like that, I'll keep being the polite person.

    Kaeli looked uninteresting to rpg players, and art style was ugly af. Going butthurt over it because people couldn't get past bad presentation was dumb move from Pope imo.

    No one gives a fuck about him. One of our major supporters to this point was a streamer Celerity - and even he is not aware of the joke (I've checked it out, obviously). So I'm afraid that those 1337 hours were in vain.
