Well, the nice thing is you're already able to play our PC version and see the UI. All our backers have been able to jump into Early Access for a while now, and the UI has been complete for a while now. Do you think we're going to re-do the PC UI at this point?

And that's correct - all our crowdfunding money was spent towards the PC, Mac and Linux version, plus additional monies from our back catalog. Not just did all the backer money go towards making the PC game the best it could be, we even added to that. How does a port of the game financed outside crowdfunding affect this effort, then? It's not like we're diverting funds or effort that could otherwise go to PC into consoles, it's a separate effort.
well the thing is you will not change the perception of those who see a problem with this.
Even if this is the truth people will never "know" it unless InXile shows how exactly the money is spend which wont happen.
people are cynics because they have a reason to be one and in the wild wild frontier of the internetz they have seen enough people trying to screw them over.
there is only one true solution and that is being honest regardless of the question, this encompasses questions about the finances and other things you may not want to disclose though. I think its great what you are trying to do here but i guess it will be in vain.
This problem could have been avoided by making the console port after the PC release, since it happens at the same time people have enough reason to assume that you guys lied. In the end the question is again if the additional revenue due to the earlier releases is worth the peoples anger.
I personally do not think that there is a problem with this, instead i will judge the game for what it is when it releases and im not worried that it will be anything but excellent.
And im sorry if im posting this towards you Brother none as you are probably aware about the whole problem , however there is no Entitlement on either side, all of it is justifiable if you see the others side and as annoying as it is in the end you cant please everyone and trust has to be earned.
Im quite unsure why i even posted this, but oh well i hope you guys have a nice whatever it currently is for you time wise
and at the people getting sour about this, i ask you to take a step back and check if this is truly reasonable, thanks.
