    Sorry to say but that's a 'parody' account - they don't make it bleedingly obvious at quick glance

    I cannot believe someone went to the trouble of creating a mock Watermelon twitter account. And... those people are more driven than Fonzie. Segadude seems to have made the same mistake as me, or he was joking too.

    The party was probably to calm all the folks asking for refunds at the time (IIRC people was starting to get really serious about those refunds, going to credit cards, banks, and more)

    I am pretty frustrated about this nonsense, but I never requested a refund. If the game comes out. I want it. But I won't ever back a game/project with Fonzie's involvement, at the lead level, at least, again.

    Was Fonzie in lead position when Paprium was started? If memory serves, he wasn't. Meaning that you can't be sure future projects wouldn't turn out like Paprium.

    I saw the release party as an act of overconfidence/arrogance. To reserve a club for the night I figure he had to have planned it months if not a year in advance. So Fonzie probably looks at the progress he's made and the time he has left and figures "yeah, I can have it done by then." Of course if you do any kind of project management you know how easy it is to watch deadlines and budgets slip away, especially when you have the lead programmer/engineer running things without some kind of manager to keep them in check.

    It's already hard enough to design software without also designing new hardware for it to run on (especially when it needs to work with a console from 1988). I'd estimate it's at least 10x harder to make a game that way versus making one for modern hardware. You really need a team of specialists working full time to pull that off, one guy by himself will take years if it happens at all.

    That sounds like the most plausible explanation to me. But even a few weeks before the event, Fonzie announced he'd soon be asking for everyone's shipping address in order to try to get the games delivered before the party. Delusional thinking.

    He's either the most optimistic person in the world or he wanted to keep building it up to take additional pre-orders/investments. Does anyone know if orders were still open at the time? If so that screams scam, you cannot be this naive when people are sending you money.

The gameplay could be exceptional but the product will always be tainted to me.
    I also reply his tweets by tweeting printscreen of the paprium youtube video.

    He may have access to better mockups. The last tweet of MAX1985 wasnt a print of youtube video. But there was a video of Facebook that was deleted, this one I couldnt find.

    All the tweets MAX1985 posts are captures of existing videos or old printed material from postcards and such.
