I'm obviously sad to hear that this project failed JCL but it seems a rite of passage in the MMO world. I wonder if there are ANY MMO developers out there that haven't had to fail many times before succeeding? If so, must be nice...

Seriously... what the fuck?
Why would anyone do this? I just... come on guys, WHAT?!
Only logical explanation I have is that this is the evil deed of a rival company wanting to waste your time/harm you financially.
Looking forward to the solution of this story...

I think those 9,7hrs of motion captured sex scenes got them stuck in whole a new venture?

It's weird they did invest money, only to pull out prematurely. tongue

probably a snowball system:

invest into a venture, show the production-progess to pursuade credit-givers to invest into it too.
(as you can actually proove that real-world partners are working with you)
Then use this money to invest into the next (bigger) venture to
pursuade other credit-givers to help with additional investmnts on
that project.

This way you can work yourself up to huge-financed ventures.
And run away with the invenstment funds of the last project.


--


The trick is to have "credibility and trust", wich you
archive by prooving that you work with real-world partners,
and giving incentives to pursue these ventures without
very deep analysis by them. (e.g. Showing a suitcase with
money as upfront payment).

Weired story, hope you had no painful financial deficit while working "for free"! I wonder if the file gets solved one day. Looking forward to hearing from you laugh
