players excited in the first place a fantastic statement claims quote we didn’t take any money from the public during the development of the day before there were no pre-orders or crowdfunding campaigns we worked tirelessly for 5 years pouring our Blood Sweat and Tears into the game which is all very touching but it still cost each player $39 to get into Early Access if you listen really carefully you can hear the sound of tens of thousands of players demanding refunds now something tells me we haven’t heard the end of this story and
