Tainted Fate is an open world horror adventure game played with two protagonists with original gameplay features. Played in first person, it features an inventory system, dynamic conversations, puzzles, two timelines (1940's and 2012), latest graphics technology and an engaging story that changes depending on your decisions.

There's a new pre-alpha demo of Tainted Fate available! In other news, Indiegogo, the funding site on which we are running our campaign for Tainted Fate took 130$ from me yesterday! Not cool.

Posted by MisfitVillage on Jan 28th, 2013

Greets people! I'm excited to announce a new version of the Tainted Fate Pre-Alpha\Tech Demo is available right here on IndieDB:

Here's a video detailing the changes from the first alpha to now:

In other, not so good news:
The funding campaign for Tainted Fate made 170 US dollars from seven funders in only one and a half day. I was extremely excited for it until this morning when I woke up, checked the campaign site and saw that it only shows 40$ and two funders!
Now I thought it was u bug or something so I checked my PayPal. Check this out; five of the funders received payment withdrawals from me at the exact same moment last night while I was sleeping. That's pretty strange, don't you think?
So I contacted Indiegogo about the problem and guess what! No reply. Real smooth. They could at least explain why it happened or say that those five people really did opt for refunds at the exact same moment last night. But nothing, not a word from them.
I don't know if it's Indiegogo's fault, or Paypal's, but something is very wrong.
Now the funders don't want to give the money again because they think I'm screwing them over. And they're not to blame.
I've had nothing but trouble with Indiegog from the day I started my first campaign, so I advise you to stay away form them if you can.

That's it. Peace out.

Try to wait, indiegogo sends replies a bit later. Day or two.

They say it's PayPal's fault. PayPal says it's Indiegogo's fault. And I'm left with no money.

I think that it's pp fault because I read in some news that they had technical issues.

Try using Kickstarter if this doesn't get resolved. Hate to see such a good looking game go down thanks to a problem with indiegogo.

Hi! I currently have an Indiegogo campaign live at the moment, and have had so many problems that I bought the domain indiegogosucks.com, and have posted a blog entry about my experience. I would love it if you could copy yours and submit it as a comment. I want to start collecting our gripes in one place in the hopes that we can help others and maybe get them to change their bad practices.
