Is Dark Skyes The Latest Kickstarter Scam? Updated 3/25

March 14th - via: cliqist.com
Last week we posted an announcement for a new game on Kickstarter called Dark Skyes, a dating sim that takes place in the world of My Little Pony (MLP from this point on). Referred to as a “Brony dating sim,” the game would let adult fans of the magical pony world date, seduce, and do who knows what else with a wide variety of beautifully drawn ponies. In the time since our announcement a number of serious allegations have been thrown at the makers of Dark Skyes, with various elements of the web calling the whole thing a joke or a scam. The 4Chan /mlp/ group in particular has been in overdrive gathering information and pointing fingers. Is it really a scam, or just a bunch of trolls picking on the Brony community? Maybe both? (Read More)
