Updates as in progress reports, not game builds so it is sort of monthly. There's usually one or two each month so you get charged based on how many are released. They also have a small team but their IRL stuff gets in the way so progress will always be slow.>>15819
Mmmmm I don't feel like the people who donated before the patreon are screwed over because they still get the Patreon reports on the Dudedle forum for free. So donators before the patreon (from my point of view) kinda get these reports for free unlike the people who get them via Patreon for $3 each. Also now they're releasing their patreon post to the public 45 days after their released. I do agree its going slow but with a small team who have other jobs it doesn't come to a surprise.
IMO I'm sort of half and half about the game being free. I'm glad that if they ever finish it it'll be free for everyone but at the same time I'm also afraid that if their IRL stuff gets in the way too much, that they'll just drop the project with supporters paying a lot to see this finished including myself.
As for supporting I don't mind it because I'm sure it helps pay their team for their work. NG and Kurono do their jobs well and Punipen has been doing translations and coding which does take a long time to do. I know they have a music guy, someone for story, and recently just got a translator which now Punipen can focus on the coding.
I'm hoping we just get to play the newest build in June as he said. Probably not but a guy can hope right? lol
