No they are not. Kickstarter is DONATION money, not money in exchange for a product. Try reading the kickstarter terms of service. There is no legal way to sue them.

You may be thinking "you should be able to sue them!" but sadly law is not designed to fit into your emotions
>>
>>253615159
>>253615679
Read it yourself you fucking idiot, you're absolutely allowed to sue them. The creators have to agree to deliver on the rewards, or deliver a refund, or else they could face legal action from the backers.

The reason Yogscat are not accountable is that they didn't set up the kickstarter, therefore the money is not their problem. They used the little dev team to set up the KS so that all the shit would fall onto their lap if development fell through. Although I'm pretty sure they would have taken a cut of the KS money behind the scenes. It would be pretty funny to see them go away for money laundering, honestly.

What is the point of having smooth terrain, if you can't fucking edit it smoothly?

You can fuck anybody over with court fees. If you have staffed lawyers and time to shove paperwork you can have an illegitimate case and just out-resource your opponent.
So some lawyer that didn't even bother to read the terms on kickstarter was out $70, and bankrupted the guy because he was pissed.

What a great example of how to abuse and exploit the court system for a pissing match.

Could be worse. It could have been like that webcomic artist who started a kickstarter to release his comic in a physical format. He sent some to his backers and then decided to burn the rest because he didn't want to work anymore and told people that he did it to show people that capitalism is bad

He then started another kickstarter campaign asking people to send him money to pay for EVERYTHING in his life (food, electricity, etc) because he didn't want to work (becuse he's a filthy commie)

Yogscast also are, because imagine the fucking shitstorm that would ensue if they just brushed over the issue without giving compensation? They'd lose a whole fuck load of fans.

Let's just calm down. Kickstarter is a way to invest money in an idea in the hope it succeeds. It is a risk/reward calculation. Some investments fail. Publishers have games fail. These guys tried and came up short. The money is gone.

There is no sense in beating them. Sometimes we fail. These guys tried and came up short. There is no scam here. Thanks for trying.

I'm impressed that yogscast is trying to do something to help out the funders. I'm impressed that TUG is willing to give out codes to us. It is not a monetary value thing - so that we can ask for a refund instead. It is a generous offer to allow us to benefit from other backer contributions. Their cost is loss of future sales. A thank you should be in order.

Wow why so mad? Winterkewl are not obligated to refund you in any way. Maybe they have to deliver on physical backer rewards, that's it.
Yogscast is not obligated either because they were barely involved aside from the promotional stuff they did. Yet they still are doing the whole TUG thing and trying to make sure some physical items are sent out. When it's not their job to do so, it would be Winterkewl's.

>>253621779
They didn't hire them. Chris somethingsomething from Winterkewl approached the Yogscast with his idea, and the YC allowed them to use the likeness of their Minecraft characters.

So let me get this straight. You can just ask for 500,000 dollars to make, fuck I don't know, a 50-hour sidescrolling metroid game. Then you can live a luxurious lifestyle for 3 years, come back and give everybody pogs instead? Like, what?

Yogscast didn't convince their fans. Winterkewl convinced the yogscast that they could do it. And Winterkewl aren't some retards or "amerturs" they're a small group of Dreamworks animators/developers whatever you call them.
Yogscast believed them and helped advertise the thing and allowed them to use their characters' likeness.
If anything the Yogscast is fucked even more so right now than most of the donators.

>If you think "but it wasn't our kickstarter" will hold up in court you have another thing coming.

It would absolutely hold up in court. Every kickstarter page lists the corporate entity that is liable for the project. In this case, Winterkewl Games LLC.

WG LLC are now going into administration and will default on any and all debts (including kickstarter funds). And, being a Limited Liability Company, the company's directors cannot be held responsible for any debts.

>If anything the Yogscast is fucked even more so right now than most of the donators.

Yogscast can go fuck themselves, the people who kickstarted are the ones out money. The Yogscast are equally or even more responsible than Winterkewl. The Yogscast got the game Greenlit, the Yogscast got the game Kickstarted, hell if you even look at the the backer's rewards many of them feature things that can only be done by the Yogscast giving them permission, this includes:


>autographs from Lewis and Simon on a printed out sheet of concept art - $200 - 93/1000 backers
>a personalized thank you video made by Lewis and Simon - $2000 - 1/50 backers
>a guest character in the Yogscast series SOI (something that hasn't made an episode in over a year) - $5000 - 5/5 backers
>lunch with the Lewis, Simon, and the developers (note you have to pay your own travel cost) - $10000 - 5/5 backers

That's a total of $95600 of donations from things that can only be filled out by the yogscast, and this does not even include the other offerings that would require their permission such as the plushie, and statuettes.
>>
>>253625938

> they can't sue for the devs not delivering on their promise

They can sue if they fail to deliver any sort of product. The opportunity cost alone makes anything short of a financial refund insufficient.

Seth Quest was sued for failing to deliver a tablet peripheral he was advertising on Kickstarter. I'd post the article but VentureBeat is filtered. You'll have to look it up yourself.

Their pathetic fanbase probably only wanted to give money to their virtual friends. I bet they only feel sympathy for how the project panned out. People stupid enough to have actually donated to something like this will almost certainly have not learned anything valuable under any circumstances.
>>
> All of these people who believe that the low budget means it's okay to cancel the project

No. They shouldn't have accepted the money in the first place if they couldn't deliver a product.

Not even the Double Fine Kickstarter handled things this badly. At worst, they would have delayed their game instead of canceling it entirely.

This borders on violating good faith.
>>

Your problem is that you believe that good intentions matter. They honestly don't.

The fact that they tried doesn't change the fact that they failed. I'm sure backers can forgive them for it, but that failure is still something the developers are responsible for.

Effort doesn't amount to as much as you think it does.

Even worse, we're pretty sure that was a scam. People called the hotel and they had didn't have any idea what they were talking about
>>
>>253623279
Yeah, the hotel had nothing to do with it.
When asked about the situation by people attending the con the hotel said that they'd never asked for the extra 17,000. On top of that, the main way of donating the money back was through an online site that only actually gives the donatee the money a few days after money is donated, so it would be impossible for them to have paid the hotel in time that way. So yeah, it was a scam.

They may have all the talent in the world, but that doesn't prepare them for the work environment.

A character TD may be able to do lovely rigging, but will it be set up just how the animators like it? A lighting TD might be able to produce fantastic scenes, but can they work with everyone else in a time frame that actually gets anything done without the renderers sitting on their hands waiting for something to do?

Or will I lose my line managers time as they spend six months babysitting someone with no real experience to get them up to speed?
>>
>>253627705
you're just moving the goalpost
the original "argument" was that it's a scam and a heist, to which I replied that it wasn't that - everyone involved wanted it to happen
intentions do matter when when people are saying that it was a scam from the very beginning which it was not

the fact that they've failed and who's responsible is a completely separate issue

I've never said "they're not responsible for their failure because they had good intentions"

although they are not obligated to recompense you if their project fails on KS either

it's their fault (Winterkewl Games') that they were incompetent and wasted the money, but you also can't do anything about it

A character artists don't do any rigging, the senior animation person provides rigs for the animators to work with and character artists just send the characters off to the animators to work with. Depending on the size of the company you can even have people that just rigs models.

But besides that stop smoking crack.

The only thing worth donating to on Kickstarter is nothing until it's 100% verified they'll go through with it, and even then that can be bullshit. Like that chicks daughter who was going to "Make her own game".

Doesn't really matter if he does or doesn't know how Kickstarter worked. I think that developers should be given the greatest amount of freedom possible once their crowd-funding campaign has ended, but if they completely bail on the project then there needs to be a way to hold them accountable.
