Got burned for the first time on Kickstarter.
« on: February 23, 2015, 11:27:28 PM »
So I went in for $7 to support The Addams Family pinball table.

Now those who paid $30 for Pinball Arcade have it, those who buy the table for $5 have it. I don't have it.

I e-mailed them Sunday. Only God knows when/if they'll respond.

I'm not alone. Many others who supported the Kickstart didn't get their keys either.

-Dreams of getting a new Wii U in 201x.
-Current consoles:Wii, PS2, XBOX 360, also has DS/GBA, Vita 2xxx, and a PSP 3000

Yes, I like buying games cheap, don't like it? Deal with it!

Farsight has always struggled to deliver on their Kickstarter awards. It's not for lack of trying, but they definitely struggle. They will eventually get you your reward, but this happened with their Twilight Zone table too. Kickstarter supporters got the table a bit later. I can't remember what caused the issue, but it eventually worked out.

There has been only one project that I have funded on kickstarter.  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login  Lightpack is awesome.  It sadly doesn't work with consoles since they have a closed system, but for a media player and pc gaming it is amazing.  The reason I backed this one is because this guy really did the legwork in pitching his idea.  I see so many projects with a crap pitch that people throw money at.

I finally got the table. Kickstart said my e-mail was invalid and I used another e-mail when I created my Farsight account.
I had to create an account with that e-mail there and now I have the table.

This always sucks, makes me glad I can't afford kickstarters.
