ThankS for all of the great coverage. Is CMON running demos of Starcadia Quest? I’d love to learn more about that and see a demo.

There are a lot of frustrated Myth backers who would love to know if Ulisses has bought the Myth property. We are having a very difficult time getting any information from anyone.

I would love for someone to ask Weta why there are still kickstarter backers who have not yet received their games when it has been available at retail for months. And now they are releasing an expansion.
