Kinetic Void basically ran out of money and people left the team, but as I said before Early access or Kickstarter is a gamble and an unknown developer wanting such a high price needs have better presentation, also some what odd is that they have forum on the main site which you cannot view without signing upto.
See some one has posted a negative review of the game and it will be interesting to see if any of the main game site take a look at it.
The reviewer was being nice. My thoughts are yeah its early access and the price should be lowered because gamers are getting a non-complete build of the game. They can always raise the price on release like a lot of developers do. But the short gameplay videos that I saw this is not worth $40 at all.
I would need to see more reviews or feedback on this one before getting this, yeah the more recent trailer videos look good. But the recent feedback on steam is negative for the most part. But by next week we should start seeing some reviews of the released game.
