A soldier's death is never in vain if it makes the formula more plain.
A few dozen make a better case for refining that third decimal place.
They call me Zombie because I don't sleep, as I slowly struggle to climb this heap,
of corpses, data points, and trials, but from the top - I'll see for miles!

So, Phoenix Point will be released as an Epic Games Store exclusive...

Big whoop? :sarcastic: *sigh*

::

Bound to make financial sense for the developer I guess, but I just can't get behind the whole "exclusive" mentality myself.

Exclusive for 1 year + free DLCs. Yes I understand that steam takes 30%, and Epic takes like what 5%? 12%? but that's sort of breaking the promise.
If not Steam than GoG. In general people don't like/trust Epic Game Store.

Yeah, silencer, there are plenty of dissatisfied backers and they have certainly been vocal.  Posted Image

Here's an excerpt from an article at Eurogamer where Julian addresses the subject:

Quote

Gollop apologised to upset backers.

"For those backers who are upset by our switch of delivery platform, we are truly sorry," he said.

"It was not our intention to scam anyone. The best we can do is offer compensation in the form of free extra content, which we will deliver throughout the launch year. This will include at least three major DLC packs. They will also receive a Steam key or GOG key, in addition to their Epic key, at the end of the exclusivity period. If they are not happy with this, we will give a full refund."

::

It's at least a modicum of compensation. Beyond that, let's face it, money talks and Epic is doing what it needs to do to make its store increasingly appealing to both developers and potential customers.
