This is from their roadmap, and shows why the game will never be finished...ever. 5 people, 36 weeks to implement selling items to NPC. :)

This is the kind of timeline I use to give back in the day when I was coding and they wanted a timeline guess. I would just throw some massive number out there and they would approve. In this example I would spend 34 weeks doing other things and the last 2 weeks finishing the project.

Chris Roberts once saw that warehouse sims have a loyal following so You’ll need to rent a fork lift and pay insurance for it to offload your cargo manually. And because this is SC we’re talking about, it’ll be a tedious process and there’s a real possibility that your loot will randomly disappear or blow up on the way to the merchant after you spent 25 minutes loading it into a freight elevator.

The development of this game and Camelot Unchained are so mind bottling.
Crowdfunded early-access forever alpha/beta bullshit is just the game development equivalent of edging: keep your customers in a state of indefinite arousal, milking their wallet dry but avoiding the final "release" that brings them back to their senses.

I wish they'd have video panels where the team lists the hours they spent on the project and shows the product and high-contributing citizens ask them questions about what took it so long.
