Today I finally received a response to my multiple requests for a refund, the first of which I made shortly after Rik announced he would be willing to provide them for unsatisfied customers. The message only makes me more dubious about the outcomes here, but some people might find it informative.

Hi there,

At the moment, we are unable to help you with this but we are very close to a production date and from there you will receive your rewards for pledging.

We have had some delays that are outside of our control but we are confident that we are going to get it finished.

Best Regards

I don't get it. He offered refunds publicly but then privately tells backers they can't have one? How is that even remotely a wise plan?

Part of me simply suspects that all of the updates, few as they have been, are more or less an attempt to prevent us, as backers, from starting a class action lawsuit against them.

It would appear from this link that Radiant Darkstar no longer has the ability to conduct business in Texas.

https://mycpa.cpa.state.tx.us/coa/servlet/cpa.app.coa.CoaGet...

One has to wonder how he is "...confident that we are going to get it finished" when it looks like the company can't legally operate in the state.

IMHO

Maybe they're doing the work in a large RV and will just switch states? Yeah I got nothin', including it seems this game that I backed. And I thought this was more likely to be released than Up Front. (insert sad face here)

Actually if you read all the information they do have the right to conduct business in Texas and a phone call confirmed this.
Not saying this will help them but I want people to have the right information.

So what does "very close" mean, given that we're 2+ months on from this message he sent and still have no production date?

You'd probably have to ask the Texas Supreme Court and then possibly Judge Tillery also.

There will probably not be any news until the lawsuit is over. The news is not likely to be good as even if VRE "wins" the costs associated with the lawsuit will eat up any funding for the games.
