I'm actually starting to believe that there isn't an actual product being developed here. There have been no updates on it for a very long time, and the screenshots which were supposed to be here by now are nowhere to be seen. There are just generic responses to progress. Since we have no evidence that such a product exists and is in beta/close to release, there is extreme reason for concern, especially given the time that has elapsed.
Why is this thread in the preview screenshots section if there is nothing to be seen? You guys seriously can't even give us a few photos? I don't understand.
Last year you teased photos and nothing has happened regarding the competition. Why can't you now? Like it was said above; nobody is going to just steal your idea and develop something in a month that's even close to what you're supposedly developing. You are aware of how extremely difficult it is to develop a product that someone else is doing solely from photos right? It's near impossible.
I, too, believe that something very suspicious is going on. That's because last year in June you posted a teaser and prelim photos for this product! A year ago! And nobody has stolen the idea! What's so different about releasing photos before the product is even close to release vs releasing them when it's "near" release? Something just doesn't sound right here. Are you even making progress on development or just saying it?
Without any proof of the product, we as customers feel lied to when you tell us that you'd be showing us everything that you've been working on. We'd be way more appreciative of the vague status updates if there was more transparency about what was going on.
Nobody is going to steal your skyforce idea with a simple, "We have just entered beta testing. The features that we implemented are working very well, so we should be posting photos here very shortly. Our aim is within the next couple weeks." Something like that will automatically make everyone feel better about the project.
I remember when the rstough person had a post from June stating that it wouldn't be much more of a wait before release and that they weren't talking months. That has since been deleted. You guys worry WAY too much about this supposed "competition." It's almost August and we have seen nothing. It was supposed to be "not much longer of a wait." But here we are almost a month later from supposedly entering beta testing and all there is to be seen are responses stating that beta testing is getting better and better. A reply from April 11th from rstough stated, "Once we move into beta testing we will begin to expose the details behind Sky Force." Is the project not yet in beta?
Now with all of that being said, my comment will probably be deleted as well. If it is deleted, oh well.
Just know that your customers are growing very impatient for data that you said would be shown. It's difficult for us to believe something exists based solely on "beta testing is getting better and better."
