Atari je nedavno pokrenuo crowdfund kako bi doveo ulagače u luku Rollercoaster Tycoon na Nintendo Switch. Traže negdje između 10,000 i 1 milijun dolara kako bi Nvizzio mobilnu verziju igre prebacio na Switch. Međutim, prosječni igrač nema apsolutno ništa od toga.
Over on the crowdfunding page they’ve already garnered $21,000 from 33 potential investors over on the Star Stranica. They’re requiring at a minimum a $250 investment.

Eurogamer pointed out that the real kicker is located at the bottom of the Star Engine page, where there’s a disclaimer that states…
“We might incur Irregular Use of Proceeds that may include but are not limited to the following over $10,000: Vendor payments and salary made to one’s self, a friend or relative; Any expense labeled “Administration Expenses” that is not strictly for administrative purposes; Any expense labeled “Travel and Entertainment”; Any expense that is for the purposes of inter-company debt or back payments.”
To je rezultiralo dosta igračima koji su postali apsolutno bijesni.
Ideja da se novac može koristiti u ne-razvojne svrhe od tvrtke koja je već uspostavljena kao Atari dovela je do ljudi koji su aktivno prosvjedovali kampanju crowdfund.

“People, please do not fund this. It is a scam. They are porting over a terrible mobile version, not the Rollercoaster Tycoon that we all love. Don’t let them do this. Don’t let them continue to screw everyone over. They do not deserve our money and you will not see returns on your investment. Please, for the love of all that is good in gaming, do not support this.”
Matt Perry (a ne onaj koji je napravio milijune glume u NBC hit TV dramedy, Prijatelji) komentirao je da su nedavni izleti u prošlosti za Rollercoaster Tycoon has ensured that he’s staying far away from the latest game…
“Yeah I’ll be staying far away from this. RCT Touch was a joke and RCT World is a skid mark on the franchise. Go back to basics and port RCT 1/2/3 to Switch instead. Good luck with this “new” RCT game – you really need to make up for your past mistakes. Chris Sawyer is ashamed of you guys”
OfficialNerdCubed and other YouTubers didn’t have the kindest things to say about the endeavor, either.
At this point, it’s tough to tell where Atari will go from here, but it doesn’t look like they have much support from the gaming community for the port of Rollercoaster Tycoon na prekidaču.
