No three guesses as to how much tripe this will turn out to be.

No mention of Zarya's passive? Is it new for this beta?
Her laser lance at full 'power' is the most devastating weapon in the game, I don't see how you can call it lackluster.

Which is a pity, it was honestly really fun. Arcadey brawler with some pleasant impact behind all the attacks.

But the business model was abysmally exploitative. It's really not a surprise.

I thought the whole point of a successful kickstarter was that it paid for production costs. How did they make a loss?

.

A highly priced indie point and click narrative game is about as niche as you get; I don't think anyone is surprised by this outcome. The quality of the marketing material on their steam store page does a good job of living up to the negative stereotype, which IS surprising given their prior experience. Anyone could have told them that people would not be willing to pay £15 for something that conveys itself like that.

.

I'm not saying they deserved the outcome - after their previous offerings they obviously do have talent - but the mistakes in this attempt are obvious for all to see, and their handling of the affair was pretty inexcusable.

.

I don't think this says anything against the market. It is not "troubling" that consumers are capable of making sensible choices.

Indeed. The reviews on Steam would appear to paint a different picture than what the press have said about the game.
