I can only assume at this point that they have plans to "save the day".
Assuming they are not crazy, what could be their plans?

The current situation as far as I know is:

- about 100 people of over 2000 got crappy, unsuable prototypes
- the rest of backers got nothing
- money was wasted on legal suits and other stuff

So what are they trying to achieve, except a satisfaction from a victory over their enemy ???

Maybe build a commercial unit (a bit like the C64 mini which has been successful) and then also fulfill the backers orders. Those guys who backed the C64 mini initially backed a handheld device and a full sized C64 recreation...that was then "changed" to the C64 mini with the promise that backers would get a 'free" mini and STILL get their full sized creation when it was done...so they are basically getting 2 devices, one free, on the back of the commercial success of the mini.

Seems like a possible solution with the "free unit" for the Vega+ backers being the one they didn't get...if you get what I mean.

Looks like the directors change isn't that obvious as you could believe:



They'll probably fight with each other until the last drop of blood :twisted:

Hi @beanz

There is no mention of that information.

Interesting...maybe they just closed everything down then fired themselves. Guess we'll see.

Or someone contested their appointment in a filing to Companies House.
One party seems to be claiming they were not appointed by the board, the other that they were instead appointed by a majority of shareholders.

Instead of these crappy legal battles they all should actually meet in some dark alley and resolve it once for all
in a manly way, like in Renagade or Double Dragon ;)

The winner gets the company, the princess (ups, no princess this time) and ...obligations to deliver Vegas to the backers ;)

Don't forget to check out Slope's Game Room's epic "KickScammers: The VEGA+ Scandal" whilst you can. Daniel posted earlier to say that it will apparently be deleted tomorrow at midday (UK time) "due to a few issues behind the scenes"...
