Well, looks like the Paprium saga isn't over yet.

The party in Paris went ahead and the game was there and playable. . . but there were no enemies on screen. I saw some footage on Youtube and it was just the main character walking through the environments.

Also, I haven't tried sending an email but people are saying all the email addresses have been deactivated.

I'm not ready to say it was a scam and the game won't be finished, but I'm getting close and there are a lot of people who already feel that way. The only reason I'm not giving up completely is I just can't understand why they would have this big party if the game wasn't going to be finished. Why spend the money?

This whole thing is very strange! I'm just glad I only pre-ordered one copy of the game. If it doesn't get finished I'm out $100 but some people ordered multiple copies and have a lot more money invested.

Wow, that is really bad.  How unfortunate that there are people taking advantage of those of us who are into retro gaming by doing stuff like this.

From what I've read there is only one person left at the company. He's the main programmer of the game and a major control freak, and he pretty much forced out everyone else that worked on the game.

I can understand problems with making the game and running out of money, but why he would send out that email saying it was done and have a party to show it off?

Maybe he needs a psychiatrist?

Yeah, that sounds about right.
