Why do they didn't just tell us what's up?
Even bad news are better the none!

It would be so much better to just say, where the problem ist instead of vanishing and keep down the information.

I've been pretty patient but this is nonsense. Where the hell is the game? Where are the videos of the game actually running? There's nothing, yet you had a party celebrating being done with it? What the hell is going on?

Fonzie is a special piece of mental shit, I believe he wanted this to work but being the asshole he is, he burned watermelon to the ground and fucked up this project big time. Can investers use this as a tax write off for losses lol ?

Pre orderered the game and the stick.

Can't do nothing but wait and cry ...

At this point Fonzie should just port the game to Steam and call it a day imo

at least Streets of Rage 4 is coming

I was patient and hooefull all the time. But all this silence is making me not like Fonzies way of dealing with this at all. I can understand how long a project can take, especially when the team broke apart. But the silence is killing it.

Streets of rage 4 is coming but i dont like the looks of that game. Boring color pallete. Its looking too western imo. Unfortunate as its a new SOR game

"On the 27th of October 2018, we are having a party in Paris, France. Let’s celebrate SEGA Genesis / Mega Drive's 30th anniversary and the release of PAPRIUM."

Closing in on 6 months since a party was held to celebrate the 'release' of PAPRIUM.

Silence...except when he needed people to spread the word and put their rep on the line for him...

It's rather obvious now that there are no funds left.
I'm sure Fonzie would LIKE to deliver the game, but it's safe to assume he just has no money left to complete it.
He made the limited Joystick campaign to raise more money.
He reportedly didn't pay his collaborators for months. He stopped refunding people. He tried to make a fake launch party, probably to get some publicity in the dire hope to find some extra money to finish the project.
I guess he's just scratching his head now trying somehow to find a way to get some other funds.
In the unlikely scenario he's able to, maybe he'll deliver something, but I honestly don't see it happening.
He overestimated his budget and was too ambitious. He made some production mistakes and burnt too many bridges instead of asking for help.
Even now, I'm absolutely sure the game COULD be completed, if he asked for external help. Things can still be made to fix the situation. A PC version could be released in digital format, for example, to raise the money he needs to complete the MD one.
Problem is, according to what every people he worked with says about him, he doesn't seem like the kind of person that would admit being wrong and ask humbly for help.
Waiting for project N
