Red Ashes (The Jimquisition)

16663 ratings | 630982 views
http://www.patreon.com/jimquisition http://www.thejimquisition.com Red Ash wraps up its final hours on Kickstarter, with failure looking to be a dead cert. However, thanks to a "last minute" save by Fuze, the game's getting made anyway... and people aren't happy. An exercise in terrible management and shoddy communication, the hot mess that is Red Ash and Comcept's marketing strategy stands as an example of exactly how big names need to NOT approach the crowdfunding world. At least the cartoon got funded, I guess.

Man Red Ashe was due to release...last year July 2017. Cartoon was apparently alright so one out of three ain't bad I guess.
alphamone (17 days ago)
The cartoon, despite being 3d rendered, was animated on threes (moving only every three frames) like a cheap hand-drawn anime. Even though pretty much any 3d animation software package made in the past two decades can do in-between frames automatically.

3 years later and where is red ash!!??? Huh!!!???? All we got was one trashy episode of the anime in 3 years!!??!!! 3!! people count em.

Apparently first episode of the show can already be found on YouTube. And it's surprisingly well made for Inafune's project.

Based on all available data, I get the very strong impression that Keiji Inafune has no freaking clue what he's doing and probably never did. Rockman was probably just the right idea in the right place at the right time (and may not have been entirely his own achievement, to be honest, who knows if he stole it off some unsung hero or heroine), and that one successful game idea was then repeated and repeated until the stamps and stencils all fell apart, at which point he took a break to swim in a pool full of money and then started pumping out Crapperdimension Craptunia using a new and much less right (for any time) sort of stamp. And while we're at it, I'm pretty sure Yuji Naka and Sonic Team are another example of more or less the exact same thing... they had one idea which worked great at the time, thanks in no small part to all the competent artists and programmers and testers and other team members who never got famous, then they kept trying to repeat the success, only in their case they apparently started changing the formula right away and surprise surprise, as they have little or no actual clue what they're doing, the outcome of their dice rolls frequently seems to land on "crap". Apologies to anyone who loves one of the unpopular things; if it's fun for you, great. By all means continue to enjoy. But can we all just agree that the old "Genius Veteran Game Designer" label has seen an awful lot of highly dubious usage over the years?

As a big fan of Megaman Legends, I would have loved to see Red Ash succeed. Never cared about Mighty No. 9, but something to make up for MML3 would have been nice.

Quiwi Lin Lisolet (1 year ago)
It's a friggin' standard in game developement that you take your minium needed budget, double it because things WILL go wrong and then double it again because more things WILL go wrong. Just be open about it and you can ask for 4 times the minium budget and promise to put the possible extra cash into extra content or updates or whatever. It's much better than asking for the minium and delivering shit. Example A: I ask for 100.000$ and if I hit few roadblocks that means I can't deliver everything I promised. At least in timely manner. I'm sorry, but I will add the missing content if the game sells enough. Example B: I ask for 400.000$ and tell you that it's more than I need, but I can guarantee everything I pitched. All leftover money goes to free updates and making sure you get the best game I can make. I'm pretty sure that me in example B will get to fund another game via Kickstarter. (Of course it depends on me being actually sincere and skilled enough to make all that I promised)

Looking back now, you have to ask yourself. Did they know Mighty No 9 was going to fail and was trying to create a backup game to try again or just make more money before the storm happens?

For anyone curious, the anime seems to have been completed and will be shown in theaters next month (along with a couple other projects, which were part of the Government Program to help fund and train young animators). It's unclear how Studio 4C (since they're the ones maintaining the Kickstarter) plans to release this to backers currently, so I'm curious. ....as for the game....? ........................¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Jeremy Seal (1 year ago)
+HunterMishky 117 He damn well tried that's for sure. I also backed Bloodstained Ritual but Mighty No. 9 has made me much more cautious when it comes to donating money on kickstarter.
Mishthecat (1 year ago)
+Jeremy Seal keiji inafune practically RUINED the name of kickstarter.
Jeremy Seal (1 year ago)
+HunterMishky 117 I hate to wish ill on people but that kickstarter was a disaster. I was so hyped and I backed it. Then they had the nerve to launch two or three more before mighty no. 9 released. Get outta here what that crap.

To anyone who isn't happy with the fact that Windows 10 Solitaire not only has ads, but manages to have framerate and slowdown issues (fucking SOLITAIRE), you can find downloadable versions of the Windows 7 editions.
Tom Mito (1 year ago)
Megaman, Final Fantasy, Castlevania... why they keep doing shit things to what was once very successfull fanchises. If the creators have gone, don't even try if you don't have the same level of what the creators originaly have in mind.

Neenjah Rammus (1 year ago)
Been using Windows 10 for going on a year now, and the only time I've ever launched Solitaire was just now to see if they really had put ads on it or kept them there. Apparently enough people laughed in their faces to convince them it was not the best of ideas.
i Draw (1 year ago)
I've launched/delivered 6 successful Kickstarters and each of my campaigns has doubled in final campaign funds AND backer count from each previous one and that's because I engendered a sense of trust from the people awesome enough to invest in me and the artistic products I want to create. I've heard from numerous people who complimented my campaigns for being so transparent and communicative, which led them to refer others to my subsequent Kickstarters and that's how it should be. Kickstarter is great IF you respect backers and don't think of them as an endless resource to draw from. You have to want to give more back (in terms of hard work, passion and material rewards) than you think your backers will want to give you. That mutual respect is how you get to do what you want and have people pay you to do it.

Apparently Red Ash is still being done. They lowered the goal to 150,000 and made a bit over that. So there are people who apparently still trust them with a kickstarter. Gonna be entertaining to see what comes out of this

I know this is one year later but I have to say it. 7:11 - What the hell happened to context clues? They teach you in school how to identify context in text (and speech by proxy). Do they not teach that anymore or are people just blatantly ignoring the context of anything that was previously said just to attack someone and show their ignorance? Never mind, I just answered my own question.
ninjabuddy1 (2 years ago)
I want this game to be good I don't have money in it I didn't like MN9 but there are a million megaman and castlevania clones there aren't many games that check all the marks that Megaman Legends does with me. I hope somebody stops inafune from shitting the bed and take over the entire project

I have been soured on the entire concept of crowdfunding from day one. I don't pay for products in potentia. I simply don't have money to spare on that regard. I'll buy a finished product, but unless that product is out there, there's always a chance of everything flopping and your money being lost.
MforMovesets (2 years ago)
Rather fund an Undertale cartoon than an anime of some generic game. And it doesn't help Mighty No. 9 to have a graphics designer who has seemingly planned to sabotage the project the whole time. Also... Patreon, transparent... AHAHAH! AHAHAHAHA!! HA!!! It's the "so far I didn't make an effort for you, but hey, if you pay me, maybe I will... but it's not measurable or guaranteed" way of funding.

33melonpaws77 (2 years ago)
I think game developers need to hire someone for the position of "Keeping It Real". This employee needs a stick, a megaphone, and will oversee all aspects of creation and marketing decisions. Whenever the heart of the game fades or the devs get greedy, "Keeping It Real" should come in and smack the dollar signs out of their eyes, shout that they have fan's expectations to uphold, and get them back on the right path.
33melonpaws77 (2 years ago)
Mighty No. 9 had problems too, didn't it? I read a forum thread on the official site. People were complaining because the game got held back (again) and some didn't care about playing it anymore. I wonder how the game is going now it's on shelves?

I still think crowd funding is a useful tool but I'd be lying if I said I don't have to be extremely sold on a product and confident in it if I'm going to throw money at it these days. Stuff like this has made be more likely to not support crowd funding campaigns.
