It is a great idea, but please I am sick of hype. Give me a game/proof of concept and then hype it.

Full disclosure: I'm a developer on Storybricks.

@Yarg2011 This is what innovation looks like. We have an idea, we show it to people, we get feedback, we demonstrate to investors that this idea addresses a demand, and then we make something cool that nobody has done before.

Going away in seclusion to create a game, just like a large company would do, means that we don't get feedback. The very thing we want to avoid is to create yet another overly complicated tool that seems simple for a developer to use, but that is too complex for a typical player.

Don't worry, we're working on something that incorporates this. But, there's no sense in wasting money if there's no interest. So, if you would like to see an actual product with Storybricks in it, give us your support and feedback. Go sign up to be a tester when it's time. Hopefully we'll astound you soon enough.

@Psychochild I am signed up as a tester. The word soon in gaming has become a very, very bad joke. Look at GW2 I think the 2 stands for number of years of hype frankly. But any game coming out now has been years in the hype mill and for me that kills interest more than builds it.
I really hope your technique is picked up by other games, truly I do. It is just the process that kills me.

@Yarg2011

Most game companies spend years in development before you can see anything and want to release games only when the experience is fine tuned.

I don't care, if the game sucks it sucks. Does not matter if you have high polycount or not. Want to release as soon as possible, right now we are figuring out when is that going to be since we are very early in the product but would like to see something before the end of the year.

People are just antsy.

You Devs should feel thrilled people are interested in your work. I know I am! :)

Even though it's fantasy-related and I am burnt out on it (but if the game is good, it could be Hello Kitty and I'd be there!).
