I find it HIGHLY unprofessional that you would post my review here for active fans to troll with negative comments, rather than leaving the comments here to the forums.
You and your fans have been harassing me for a month over a single negative review. Thus the deleting comments.
I do not wish to have my steam account linked to these forums. Please Remove the links to my review and from my review here. I do not wish to be harassed by fans and you anymore. Just leave me alone.
My negative review stands. As far as context goes, it remains here for anyone who decides to check out the forums direct links are unnecessary and unprofessional. Especially since Steam does not want ANYONE posting outside links in the comments.
You do realize that by posting your opinion on an open board you've invited others to discuss it? I don't know if you've actually been flamed by people via private messages or not, but no one here is abusing you. You're playing the victim while attacking Ray for sticking to his vision of the game. Lore was never a strong focal point of the game, and as he mentioned, it can be tacked on later. You're focusing too much on one flimsily-explained mechanic (non-villager Catjeet being ignored by monsters) in a game that hardly has any explanations— just mechanics that can be given lore fluff later.
I like to believe that the Catjeet merchants are ignored because they don't belong to permanent settlements. The monsters only start to appear around settled areas. Perhaps the Catjeet work alone, and their individualism/lack of dedication to a "cause" or "home" makes them not apparent targets to a bunch of creatures that may not have eyes, ears, etc. or a need to eat. My point is that it's not difficult to apply your imagination to unexplained phenomena.
If you've played for 250 hours and consider flaming the dev to be "helping", you've definitely gotten more than your money's worth. Personally, I'd remove that negative review and wait for the game to actually have any lore before attempting to judge it based on that, but that's your choice. The rest of us will keep enjoying the developing game and give suggestions as to the course of the game's development instead of attacking Ray for being "unprofessional" because some things aren't fleshed out and the game won't be tailored to our individual visions.
