    Advanced? Only the assets are done, and that's it.

    Late post but for those who are curious: cached DNS, especially if it's the ISP's DNS server (as is the case for most people). Changes can take a while to propagate (easily a whole day), and we know the server was still up, just the DNS entry is down. It's a very common problem when a site moves to another server (as the address may still be pointing to the old server for many people).

    Don't forget about Project N investors. That "game" didn't even reach the pre-early-alpha build. But I'm confident all that money has already been used for other things as well.
    And the last batch of Pier Solar Reprint pre-orders which were never fulfilled either.
    And the arcade sticks.

    If you gift him one hundred thousand dollars now, in all likelihood it won't be enough to fulfill all the promises.

    I'm looking forward to the reveals on the preorder numbers. Would be rather interesting.

    Yeah, I did not think of Project N and all the other pre-orders.
    It is true, there must be tons of money spent on products that can no longer be delivered if all indications are true and WM is done. So any investment at this point would be pointless from a business standpoint. It would not just be about getting Paprium out of the door. Even if they did that ... the money for thousands of games has been paid and there would be no new revenue for all those pre-orders they would ship. And how many more copies of Paprium they could even then sell is doubtful. The MD market for new games is limited after all, there will not be another 10,000 purchases soon on top of the thousands pre-ordered already. And all revenue from future sales would have to go into the refunding of the other Projects and orders, or into the fulfillment of them first before anything could be taken as a profit and an investor would make money .... even if he got something it would first just be taking back the investment before he would have gained anything.

    • Several thousand pre-orders of Paprium
    • New copies of Papi Commando
    • New copies of Pier Solar on MD and DC
    • ProjectN investments
    • Grand Stick
    • Payment for people who worked but went unpaid so far


    There is just too huge a pile of things that have been paid for by customers and that would need to be sorted out with any cash that WM would get before any profit would be available to share. Why invest in a product where the profits have already been spent? Unless Fonzie actually still does have money I don't see why anyone would give him any.

    Someone mentionned on the french forum that he received a press copy of the game, also stating there is a rule asking to refrain from giving infos on the release. No guarantee this is legit. These are photos he posted:

    Ok the obvious question then: Why would a press copy of the game have five copies of the player selectable character on screen?

    This is weird. This looks like it's either fake, or this game is in a seriously bad spot. That is an ugly screenshot. Also, why would the press receive just that ugly cart? The case and contents are complete, or at least far enough along g that he could have sent a legit-looking press copy. This is a bad look on WM if it's real.
