So yeah it's not even vaporware, but apparently there were employees and they were paid. At some point.

@sophnar0747 wrote it, if anyone wanted to ask her questions.

I'm usually around, just lurking.
Nice write-up. Good find that Tingle did actually take money for the project. In his AMA, he acted like he wasn't associated with it at all. He didn't receive a lot, but he still took money and gave input to the project. His angry denials from the AMA come off disingenuous.

I assumed Chelsea was more crass and basically took whatever was left over after physical rewards were sent for herself. It sounds more like she vastly underestimated a relatively simple project, put in some initial effort, found out it was harder than expected, lost interest and tried to gloss over the failure instead of owning it and moving on.

Yeah, if she wasn't already prepared for dealing with big unions like SAG, she should have gone non-union. There's no shame in it. If they make it tough for small projects to use their talent, then their talent will lose some opportunities. That's simply an inherent part of setting up all sorts of rules like they have.

Yeah, I think hiring inexperienced and unknown actors would have served the campy theme of the game better than working with professionals. It would also have been less expensive.

Mombot said it's been more than 300 days now. If we wait 2 more months, it'll be a year since her last update on Kickstarter.

That's assuming a finished game was ever the primary goal, though. Quinn is desperate for status. This project was supposed to give her the opportunity to say, "I worked with self-styled king of the nerds Wil Wheaton, professional wrestler Joey Ryan, former Minnesota Viking Chris Kluwe, the little girl from Mrs. Doubtfire, and a bunch of legitimate voice actors. I even got profiled in Vice. I'm a real celebrity now!"

Don't get me wrong. I don't doubt that she hoped the whole thing would work out and a game would somehow eventually be produced. I just don't think that was ever her primary goal.

Yeah, she probably started this with the intent of making an actual game, but at what point did she see that nothing was moving forward and just said "fuck it" and pocketed the remaining money?

Somewhere between all the glowing press articles from Vice, Vox, waypoint, polygon, etc and her cuck boyfriend Alex Lipschitz wearing a wife beater, hot pants, and a unicorn mask.

Edit: it’s nice to see she paid the contributors, probably fearing backlash but I wonder how many would have the balls to ream her on twitter for failing to pay them? It’s clear the media is too afraid to report she scammed $85k from idiots.

It’s like a Mexican standoff.

If you donate money to "Chuck Tingle The Game by Zoe Quinn" your money is better off elsewhere.
I’ve said this many times, they didn’t donate to find a chuck tingle game. They bought indulgences from Zoe and for good boy points.

It was a way to throw money at this poor awful victim to make themselves feel good. This why the vast majority don’t care (and because they’re afraid to speak about it for fear of being labeled a Nazi/at-right/gamergater).
