Not surprising as we're in the rickert spin zone.
The rhetorical gymnastics being undertaken to try and establish the defense of Queen in the argument as reasonable are astounding.

It's totally working, too. Everyone agrees with him to give a company more money so that they may choose to pay someone for something they should have already paid for and chose not to.

Which, let's recall, basically amounts to, DonaldX is an employee of Queen, and since a lot of companies abuse their employees one way or another, we should support Queen because if we didn't support Queen, we couldn't support any company.

Queen could likely chain Donald out back, but as long as he's an "employee" and paid "wages," he better be making the damn game.

Defending Queen isn't anything I've seen done in this thread. Maybe I overlooked it. It is a long thread. Point me to this. I want to read his or her reasons.

Wasn't there supposed to be some sort of settlement announced by today?

I think it is getting pretty late in the day for Germany.

Yeah.

The issue is being dealt with. We have been talking with Donald and we believe we are coming to a resolution to what is not truly a problem until June 30th contractually. As it is Friday and there for Friday night in Germany. We can not say anything officially until Monday. This is an agreement with all parties involved.
Technically, she wrote that Queen cannot say anything until today... with no guarantee that they actually will say anything today. whistle

Nothing yet. But yeah, they said "We can not say anything officially until Monday. This is an agreement with all parties involved."

Who knows. They'll probably say they meant next Monday.

I didn't commit to anything being accomplished specifically by today. That's just something they optimistically posted.

Oh God. If this wasn't really happening it would be funny.

I'm not sure how much more of Queen's optimistic view of the world I can take.

EDIT: Nevermind, Shawnad2006 nailed it.

Now I know it is Monday and we have said nothing official. We are still in contacted with Donald X. . He has not disagreed to the running of this Kicksatrter. Be assured if he wants it stopped, we at Queen Games will oblige him and discontinue this Kickstarter immediately.

Donald, thank you for coming on here and posting honestly about a kickstarter.

You're like the Anti-E of game designers.

I was thinking about backing this....but it just doesn't sit well with me that a established game company keeps KSing everything. There has to come a time that they can develop and produce a game on their own buck/euro.

It is sad that after a base game, 2 regular expansions, and 2 mini-expansions they can't seem to pay the man that developed the game.

I am only glad they are not offering anything that is KS exclusive. I'll wait and see if this is made and buy it at a LGS.

I hope everything works out for Don he is one of my favorite game designers and just like alot of other media geniuses they seem to be used and abused, but deserve so much for their part in designing a game.

All the more amazing when you realize that they're KSing an expansion for a SdJ winner.

Don't see anything amazing at all. Eminent Domain, which is on a lot of reviewers top 10, 20 or 100 games of all time, just started a kickstarters for a new expansion. The Tiny Epic series has been enormously successful in 3 games and just today began a kickstarter for a first expansion for one of them. It is a new day. Kickstarter is not just for startups any more. I think Alien Frontiers uses it for all of its full products.

Those are all examples of successful game series that originated on Kickstarter. Once you start with Kickstarter, there are big incentives to continue.

It's hard to believe, but there was once a time when Queen didn't throw everything onto Kickstarter, and the Kingdom Builder base game is a remnant of that bygone era.
