Divergence has just reached its funding goal on Indiegogo and the numbers keep rising.

It looks like we are going to be able to log into this game! I will have a great deal of fun if this game goes onto be a success with such a small team versus the giants who spend millions out there.

I am glad he got the money, hopefully it will be enough to get him where he wants to go.  It wasn't a ton, but he has a lot done already, from the look of things.

It's certainly a relief to see that so many players are already supporting this game. Ethan is a bloody hard worker, and has his sights set on that one goal of hitting release.

By the looks of things, we're gonna start seeing alot more content coming out of SGL for Divergence over the coming months.

Is there any way to chip in now? I saw that it was over, but would love to support it. I know the guys behind The Repopulation opened it up after they reached their goals on kickstarter. Any1 know if it's possible with DO?

I have wanted a game that he described. Let me be free in a SCI-FI world with good FPS combat and physics. The only thing it doesn't give me is spaceships but it will have to do till Chris or Eggosoft give me some.

Not right now, but AFAIK they plan to launch another fundraiser in a few weeks, when they release the next video.

 

Stay tuned! :)

Thx for the info. Since I have my head up my ass most of the time, if you remember me, please send me a mail here and say if it's on. Cause I might miss it, and would like to have it covered. ;)

Still waiting on evidence that the game is anything other than a money pit. Its almost like he provided the manual Appleton is following.

Can you post a link to what is done so far? I don't remember seeing anything other than running around in indoor and outdoor environments. Have there been videos or blogs of completed gameplay?

Have you looked at the older posts in this very forum? The numerous times he has asked for donations because the game was "90% done and just needs a little more"? That quote was from 2007! Or how about the thread where he went on a tirade against mmorpg.com themselves because they "stopped supporting him". Seriously. How can you see anything but him being a shiester?

See, I don't see him as a shyster. I think that he genuinely believes he can create and operate the MMORPG that he envisions. My personal issue with all this isn't with EthanC but with the amount of MMO gamers that read a list of idealistic, wondrous things, see the usual ass-view screenshots and environment videos, and assume that what they are looking at indicates there is any kind of game present... or that the person creating it has the ability to create it at all.

MMO gamers seem extremely gullible in that regard and then ardently defend their view without actually giving the project the slightest bit of critical inspection. Hope seems to regularly triumph history and fact on a regular basis here.

I mostly agree with you. I simply cannot call him anything but a thief though because he should know better. I can see him no differently than a televangelist. Even if they honestly believe in their god, and that god is speaking through them, selling it in that way is absurd.

So say you pour your heart and soul into something like he has....are you never allowed to ask for help? Are you never allowed to get frustrated? I bet if I went through your past posts I would find some 'tirades'. Let the game develop, donate or not donate. Play or not play. I for one am looking forward to this and he can "shiester" me outta 50$ when the time comes too!!

I highly doubt you could find me launching a "tirade". Even if you could though I am just a random guy on the internet. Not a CEO asking for you money and promising you a service.

You are right, I most likely couldn't because I would not spend the time looking. Either way I just don't understand why people feel the need to attempt to discredit something that has not effect on their lives what so ever. But I am happy to oblige in conversation to keep Divergence getting some buzz :)

That alone shows just how poor an analogy that is. The important part though is his blatant lack of professionalism. You do not climb into a van that says Free Candy on the side, so why are you going to listen to a guy that has yet to produce anything but some screenshots? The same stuff that he has been using for years. This is exactly why I draw lines between him and the garbage that Appleton has spread. And much like the negative press that Appleton has created it does effect me. The more of these shitty projects that throw out great ideas and continue to beg for money and not produce anything the more people are not willing to pony up for the projects that are not pipe dreams. Vaporware is not something that should EVER be thought of as a good thing.
