The Kickstarter game Shenmue 3 is an Epic Games exclusive…
Meanwhile they were on Steam for a while. Getting my hopes up.
I didn’t back this game. Though I was planning to buy it because I played Shenmue 1. And Steam even had a good deal by having Shenmue I & II so I can play through all the (now boring and tedious) game-play before I play the latest release.
It’s too bad that all the backers getting a refund will not make a difference because Epic dumped much more free money on the developers. And I can’t even guess if the game will be good yet!
…Another well-off crowdfunded game bought out by Epic Games…This is getting ridiculous.
No refunds are given to crowdfunders. In litigation, apparently the difference in using kickstarter is that it is an investment, not a pre-order. The difference being you’re paying for the game that might exist or you’re paying for a game that will exist. So one allows a chance for failure, the other does not. If I understand the situation correctly.
