Hi everyone,

I have a small YouTube channel dedicated to retro games and today I made a documentary on Paprium, a Sega Genesis game that was supposed to have launched in 2018 and promised us Neo-Geo grade graphics.

Part 2:

Really enjoyed that! Man that guy is tight fisted. So much ego in start-ups sometimes. Egos and business is often a recipe for disaster.

Yep! Sadly, the chances of a new paprium look dimmer each day.

@stika: I'm enjoying the documentary.

But it's all so mysterious. This Zippy fellow. His behaviour doesn't make any sense!

I'm hearing alot from (annoyed and mostly unpaid) people he's employed or worked with but nothing from the big man himself.

He is clearly elusive and secretive. Making a decision not to release any info on his crowdfunded projects until they are finished is the opposite of what you are supposed to do with those types of funded projects. It's just inconsiderate to the point of being rude.

It just makes people think they've shelved the project and pocketed your cash...

So I'm guessing as WM are now gone, all that pledged money is also just gone. No art books or anything.

I'll guess I'll have to wait for the final episode to find out!

What a shame. I was so excited for this game too.
