I can't help but question why Giant Bomb isn't being more critical of some of Double Fine's recent shenanigans. I understand that that the company is full of lovable people, but this game is now on track to be released over two years later than what was promised to Kickstarter backers (even after the budget was unexpectedly expanded). Meanwhile, Spacebase was abandoned in Early Access, and the big Broken Age delay/split was conveniently announced days after the Massive Chalice Kickstarter closed.
They're developing a track record of fairly anti-consumer behaviour, and while I can't claim to know for sure what's motivating anyone, it really feels like they're getting a free pass because they're friends of the site.
But what about Brad Muir's smile?
