Anyone else following this happy little series of poorly made decisions (on the developers part)?

I won't be the first or (sadly) the last time someone tries this.  It's always fun to see them fail though

All in all it's not that bad of a game. I mean yeah, it's a -really- bad game. But even with all the insane glitches that should have stopped being well before Beta, people could still have fun with it.

The real problem is the shady, almost childlike behavior of the company (the CEO in particular). Starting off with funding their own kickstarter to make it seem people were interested in it, creating false reviews of their game giving it undeserved and dishonest praise, followed by straight up bribing people to greenlight it with steam keys. While all of that is kind of skeevy at best, the move that sent the whole thing tumbling over a cliff was taking down TotalBiscuit's video. Seeing as he had the largest following and was taking the game seriously in his review, which was quite negative.

I got interested and did some digging on the steam forums, where I found happy little quotes from the developer like this:

Stephane:
"We can't add all gameplay element in the world, we are a indie studio and this game has already cost a %?$/ lot of money and debt !!!
If we can sell enough copy, then we can add new features in the game."


User:
"why are u shouting? :) im checking this forum and all of ur answers are rude and with "!!!""


Stephane:
"I'm not shouting, calm you self. I'm really not rude! An exclamation is not rude!"



Keeping it classy Stephane.



All in all, it doesn't seem to have affected their trend of losing players, which has been happening since it got on steam.
