Exactly. Problem is people are already claiming that they've "discovered" his scam simply because he hasn't delivered exactly when he said. Yes this has happened more than once and that's the basis of people's mistrust, but there could be technical problems he's not even aware of, or any number of other perfectly legit reasons for the delay. I may write him and see what if anything is going on, but I'm tempted to wait a bit.

Ah yes, I remember that. And if I'm not mistaken I was the one who brought that to the list's attention since I found it on Blindcooltech.com. Granted I didn't know right then that it was just an SL mod with different sounds and cutscenes. I just thought it was extremely corny and I remember that kid from the GMA list. And given the sighted population's general views on the blind community I would find it hard to believe, assuming Jyro himself is sighted, that they wouldn't realize that there wouldn't be enough money to make a scam worthwhile.

Hi tom.

I've also been in private communication with him as well, and he seems like a very decent chap indeed.

Myself I can only ever think of one actual scam which has ever been perpetrated on behalf oof accessible games, and that was that loopy kid who modded superliam and claimed it was his game creation.

Really the accessible games community doesn't have enough money involved to make a scam worth while, and the contact betwene developers and players as with most indi devs would make something like that very difficult.

i Always feel the people who cry scam! scam! whenever things aren't to their satisfaction are a litle paranoid.

Me on the other hand, I'm not the least paranoid I know! everyone is out to get me, ;D.

Beware the grue!

DArk.

Hi Dark,

In deed. There is more than enough evidence available he is working on
the game. The demo and from what I've heard of the game so far means
he is creating something. Plus $10 for the game doesn't seem like a
lot of money for a scam to me either. Assuming he got 100 preorders
that would only be $1,000. If he were out to really scam the community
wouldn't he try $20 or $30 in order to double or tripple his income
from the scam?

Cheers!

It also strikes me making a partial demo and accepting preorders is far too
much work for what return you'd get on a scam, in fact not much beyond
making the game.

Myself, I'm content to wait, but I'm inclined to think that the reason Jake hasn't contactede anyone will be a good one, simply by virtue of his very
open approach previously.

Beware the grue1

Dark.
