A folder of screencaps is available D.7z The only staff member who has not yet been linked to MDE is Britanny Ledbetter aka "Pukey", in charge of concept art.
Something has smelled fishy ever since the post went up, and it's not because it's lent either.
Do not pledge any money to this project before you take a look at the evidence that community members have compiled over the last few days.
The skepticism began when people started to analyze the strange bits about the Kickstarter's details - the inconsistent details such as how the project was "95% finished" and yet they were just now starting a Kickstarter, and that there is a "playable alpha", and yet there is no demo or video of gameplay available. These attempts to stave-off fears seemed to backfire on the team, as people began to question the project and the motives further.
As well as the fact it lists "deep RPG elements" as a feature even though this is a text-based dating simulator. And then, the mysterious screencaps began to appear. "Why would it take you a week to release a demo, if the game is already 95% done?
" "Why is there no video of alpha gameplay at least?
" "Why are you just now asking for money if you have completed 95% of the game already?
" "Why is this the first time anyone online has heard of the project if it's been worked on for over 3 years?
" (For that matter are they aware that the fandom itself is just over 3 years old?
Are they implying that they started working on a pony dating sim in the first half of season 1? All you really need to know is that nearly every member listed on the development staff page has been linked to it, and it has publicly been associated with a pony project prank.
