Survivors of Ragnarök is a city-building-management-survival game inspired by Dwarf Fortress. Manage, create, and survive through dynamic and deadly worlds. Losing is a fundamental core aspect of design.

Let's talk about biomes.

Let's talk about biomes.

Biomes are a pretty big deal in procedurally generated games and they will be a really big deal when it comes to Survivors of Ragnarok as well. I've thought about setting up the biomes to be small chunks...

Actually the last update was Posted on February 6, 2014 on their website. I wouldn't respond here either you guys are just being Object suckers for the most part, so why should they?

That said, if you really just picked up the game, well pay more attention and as @SirPrimalform said, when you fund Alpha you know the risks, so bitch all day, but you knew them so nobody cares at that point, or much.

Nope, Desura doesn't care about us. I and many others have contacted them. They will neither give refunds nor remove the game.
I don't believe they even actually read your message, as in mine I VERY CLEARLY states that these devs have taken our money and ran, ignoring any attempt at contact. Desura's reply? "Not our problem, talk to the devs"

While I'm not exactly happy the game has been abandoned, Desura doesn't owe you a refund. When you alpha fund a game, what you see is what you get. What you bought was the game as it was at that point. Any updates are just a bonus, and sadly it would appear that this game won't be getting any more. Doesn't mean anyone owes you anything.

I have no future plans to purchase for Desura and will strongly recommend anyone I know stay away from them for this exact reason.
Instead of stepping up and addressing this problem Desura's response is "too bad" they have your money so they no longer care, and the game will stay up to continue to take more unknowing people's money.

I've never dealt with a company who cares so little about you, which is a pretty big achievement in this day and age. GoG and Steam from now on for me.

Careful with Steam. They've leaked some dodgey games too (one sthat are buggy, some that aren't worth the money they are sold at, some that are falsely reveiwed). Not as many, but they do get through occasionally.

Also direct you to a site where they discuss some questionable content and rights:
Escapistmagazine.com

Half the people that I post a comment or review for delete my post. These people don't care for constructive critizm, only care to hear that their product is good the way it is, with no problems.
Don't be deceived that Steam is clean of rubbish.

I contacted Desura for a refund for THIS game - and if not possile - simply take it down from the platform to prevent other gamers wasting their money. But they dont care.

So why should i care to get more games on this platform?

But yeah. This game here has gone beyond reasonable. It's still listed here, in it's nonfunctional state. Lack of any kind of updates proves that this isn't a serious project. More like a hobby project (which can be dropped and picked up on a whim more than if this were worked on like a proper job). This is all personal guesswork though. It may still be in progress, but on a far slower, less serious pace than is anticipated.
I hope people have a decent enough intellect to look at what they buy before impulse buying and getting ragey. This doesn't help the player community either.
For most that I have read here, they've been on the waiting boat for a very long time.
I am looking at this from several angles.
Personal view, This game should come with an obvious statement that it's progress has temporarily stopped, when it stopped getting updates, and possibly put it on a temporary non-purchaseable state until it gets a proper update.
It would be nice if Desura had some better management on unfinished content that sits in stasis for too long and still is listed as available for purchase. Doesn't have to remove the game from their drives, but making it impossible to purchase would be a nice incentive for devs to get their Object moving, or drop the project altogether (regardless of situations). - it's a business. Object happens. Many games never see light of day. If you can't keep up, ship out. General work ethic for AAA companies. If they are seriously intent on getting their game out there, they can easily retry and re-posting their project back up once it's further in development. I make it sound easier than it probably is, but it may help the player community a little more.

Completely your choice. In all honesty, I prefer to get my games that are not linked to these sort of places. DRM free is the way to go. I'll still make use of Desura and Steam as there are a few gems I actually like that you can only get there.
It might even be a better idea to never prepurchase or "invest" in development games. Money spent elsewhere until a game's full completion is money spent wiser (more or less). Unless of course you have money to burn and don't mind investing. To each their own.
