if you remember sethaniel, that's unfortunate. if you don't, he was a smug weeb who allowed Pedo Mod Kiel, another reviled figure in our history, to diddle kids because it was just like in his animus.
so anyway, he posted a kickstarter for some anime game like, forever ago. and everyone who donated has yet to see any kind of return on their investment lol.
so remember, kids, no matter how "mature you are for your edge", your thirty year old boyfriend doesn't love you; and don't donate to his Kickstarter.
read these comments, they're gold.
if kiel is like, the dark wizard of having sex with children, sethaniel is his sycophantic apprentice who carries his scrolls refills his inkwell with human blood
Seth is to Kiel as Grima Wormtongue is to Saruman.
"Sure he's no Kiel, but I can't say he doesn't know how to screw children."
Before all this happened, Con Mod Seth at one time implied he was going to make something on CoG which probably would have been easier, but I suppose then he wouldn't have been able to rip off kids as quick and keep all the profits.
He even made a DLC just for you https://chooseyourstory.com/forums/the-lounge/message/20215#709763
this is so sad can we hit $3500?
Odd. I never even saw that tag before from that thread.
Also 250 fun bucks for a halfhearted cameo as some background character? You can buy a better game for less like Insomniac's Spider-man on the PS4!
Does he think of himself as some esteemed and legendary developer with prices like these? Well I suppose a person probably wouldn't have time to think of thoughts like that when ripping off those that paid for their project or whatever.
I've never liked Seth ever since he almost banned me for calling Aman a cunt.
The banning of Playa988 was tragic. Like the Boston Massacre.
Honestly JJJ should have banned Melissa instead during that incident. She was doing her usual passive aggressive trolling routine while trying to not look like she was trolling and playa called her out for being a pedo.
Ya I spent 30 dollars on chips today and only ate like 12% of what I had and left the rest to my cousins because I was bored.
Maybe but prefer to be called..... Revolutionary.
I want to make a joke about that last part just want to ask permission first.
Oh I had forgotten entirely about this. Wasn't too interested in the story, since I don't really enjoy romance or school focused stuff, but I'm usually open to reading whatever occasionally and would have read through it if it ever got finished.
In hindsight I probably should have taken Mizal's approach and just planned to paypal some money directly at some point. I contributed a bit towards the Kickstarter due to being empathetic towards his situation, since I was preparing for a similar experience, while also trying to be supportive of him seemingly doing something constructive while recovering. I can respect someone who tries to work through that. I can't respect someone who makes false promises that involve other people's money.
I had a pretty major surgery last fall, with some annoying post-op complications, and unexpected medical bills can add up really quickly even with solid insurance. So I know exactly the kind of financial pressure that can make. My solution was to work a lot of extra hours ahead of time to save additional money, and also setting up some opportunities to have the option to work from home more indefinitely.
Anyway that's one the reasons I haven't been around on this site for quite a while, since there's only so many hours in a day and you can't always do everything you'd like to do depending on life circumstances. It's also why I could feel for Seth's situation at the time.
In general the best way to handle giving money is to never expect anything back and to not give more than you can afford to spare. In that way you don't ever worry about it, and if someone eventually pays you back then it can be a pleasant positive. In the case of a Kickstarter though, you're setting up an obligation to your backers to complete your project no matter how long it takes. Or at the very least give an in-depth look into what you worked on, how much got done, and why you couldn't finish it. While it didn't really impact me, I am disappointed in Seth for all the people who pledged and were expecting something to enjoy out of it.
