This guy's life needs to be put on film.
    All I can guess is that at some point in the process he needed to borrow money and he got a loan from some unsavory characters, maybe not the actual mafia but the kind of guys who don't take "soon" for an answer.

    Someone should make a Paprium rom hack with a character sprite of one of the characters changed to Fonzie and the enemies changed to the Chinese mafia lol
    I believe what he meant was that rather than establishing offices in China, Paypal outsourced it to a different company who is legally allowed to use their name, but is mostly left up to their own devices.

    If I get a refund, I will use it to buy Ken's new book (since it would cover that with shipping).

    Doesn't sound like it is coming any time soon.

    I guess that's possible but if it really was a mix-up on the part of PayPal, wouldn't the first thing to do be to contact PayPal HQ in the US or at least the international offices in Singapore? I've used PayPal internationally for a decade and have never heard of something like this happening, even in the worst case scenario they have to return the money in 180 days.

    But maybe it did happen that way, who knows.

    Can someone else make a game and run off with the funds for 10 years so we can talk about it?

    I have been checking on these forums far more than I have spent time playing my copy, after receiving it.

    I was hoping someone would ask that. I've got this great idea for a platform game on the Mega Drive, it's going to be similar to High Seas Havoc except a lot faster. There will be lots of underwater levels because I know those are everybody's favorite. I cannot talk too much about technical specifics just yet but I plan to include a 128 GB SSD in the cart to make sure there's room for DLC.

    I'm still years away from being able to move a pixel but get your pre-orders in today so you won't miss out on a limited edition copy.

    In all seriousness I want to make a game but I have no idea where to start. I certainly wouldn't make it too ambitious or ask people for money before it was finished. This fiasco makes the risk to reward ratio seem pretty poor.

    Did everyone receive their copy? I thought there was still people waiting on games and sticks.
