Game developer's $40,892 Kickstarter project goes unfinished, donates remaining funding to Feminist Frequency, changes name.

Q5xVDHT.png

While she claims to be a game developer, her kickstarter was for a guitar pedal project, not a game of some sort. I like how she continues to list a patreon there.

Anyone who is pissed I donated to @femfreq instead of using it on my IRS / KS debt can suck my dick....

 

 

From her kickstarter update posts:

 

I WANT TO BE VERY CLEAR ABOUT THIS SINCE PEOPLE SEEM TO BE HAVING A VERY HARD TIME PAYING ATTENTION TO THE PREVIOUS UPDATES.

ONE : CONTACT ME AT CONSOLEatDEVIEVERdotCOM FROM NOW ON IF YOU NEED TO GET A HOLD OF ME

TWO : I CAN'T PAY BACK MORE BACKERS TILL I'VE PAID THE IRS. I OWE THE IRS A LOT OF MONEY. I -HAVE- ALREADY PAID BACK THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS BEFORE MY IRS DEBT BECAME A BIGGER CONCERN, SO PLEASE STOP TELLING PEOPLE I AM TAKING THE MONEY AND RUNNING FOR THE LOVE OF FUCK. MY KICKSTARTER BACKERS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ABLE TO GET A HOLD OF ME AT CONSOLEatDEVIEVERdotCOM. ANYONE WHO SAYS OTHERWISE IS A TROLL OR NOT PAYING ATTENTION.

THREE : I'M NOT MAKING A LIVING WAGE YET (I.E. I CAN'T AFFORD HEALTH INSURANCE, MY HEALTH IS FAILING IN VARIOUS ASPECTS, SO IT'S PRETTY FUCKING IMPORTANT I CAN AFFORD THESE THINGS BEFORE PAYING MORE PEOPLE BACK)

FOUR : UNTIL I PAY BACK THE IRS AND AM MAKING A LIVING WAGE, I CAN NOT CONTINUE TO PAYBACK KICKSTARTER SUPPORTERS. PERIOD. END OF STORY. I AM STILL WORKING HARD TO MAKE A LIVING WAGE AND IF YOU WANT TO SEE THIS HAPPEN SOONER, THEN STOP ENABLING HARASSMENT OF ME, AND START SUPPORTING MY PIXEL ART, MUSIC, AND VIDEO GAME DEVELOPMENT.

FIVE : SEE ONE

ENABLING TROLLS, STALKERS, AND HARASSERS TO BOTHER ME ABOUT THIS VIA TWITTER IS NOT GOING TO HELP ME GET TO A BETTER PLACE FINANCIALLY, SO THOSE OF YOU DOING SO, PLEASE STOP

ONCE AGAIN, YOU CAN -ALWAYS- GET A HOLD OF ME VIA CONSOLEatDEVIEVERdotCOM

ONCE AGAIN, THAT IS CONSOLEatDEVIEVERdotCOM

CONSOLEatDEVIEVERdotCOM

P.S. ON A MORE PERSONAL NOTE, I AM NO LONGER GOING BY THE NAME DEVI EVER, SO PLEASE RESPECT THAT AS I HAVE WRITTEN HERE, AND REFER TO ME AS GRACE LYNN. THIS IS NOT AN ATTEMPT TO RUN AWAY FROM MY DEBTS, BUT A VERY PERSONAL DECISION. ONCE AGAIN, PLEASE READ HERE AND RESPECT MY DECISION.

 

This is not a joke.

I want this to be over with.

People are now organizing a harassment campaign against me, enabling people not even involved in this kickstarter including a stalker who has been harassing me on a daily basis for three years.

I have no money to give anyone.

I can't even pay for my own medical coverage.

I just want this over with.

Please sue me. I beg of you. Take me to court. Have this all done.

You won't get your money any fucking quicker, but you'll ruin my life just like you want, and we can all be over with this.

I just want the harassment to end.

I'm begging you.

 

tl;dr: Kickstarter project gets funded, doesn't get finished, donates money to Feminist Frequency rather than paying backers back and paying taxes. Now she's playing the harassment victim card and in emotional distress due to the government expecting taxes to get paid.

So you practically steal money from someone and expect them to be okay with it? This is a legitimate business now (other than the IRS)?

So instead of working on a project that might help her financial situation, she donates it, essentially taking people's money.

That's messed up. I hope everyone can get their money back.

 

 

On a side note, I've never understood the whole GamerGate thing. I get that women are harassed online, but so are guys. I also think that they are over-sexualized in games- but apparently, burly guys with biceps the size of a large tree trunk are fine.

An absolute scumbag Stacy, this one. That is my impartial observation.

 

Wow.

 

Woooooooooooow, how can you get this dense.

In case the moderators do not ban me as requested, this is a notice that I have left and am not coming back.

I have no sympathy for her. She donated money she could have used to pay off the IRS, and used it to support a cause that many find offensive and rude.

That seems like a personal problem. 

If you don't deliver on the initial offer I would want my money back.

What gives her the right to go take the money and donate it for any cause?

People aren't just expecting their money to just disappear after funding kickstarters?  Really?  Get a grip people.  They give their money away, then are mad the person(group/company/whatever) mishandles it or gives it away.

Does anyone in this forumyou guys know i love all of you...except you I/O, I want your name know how donating money gives you a tax break?

Kickstarter money is the exact same thing as income. For a person that isn't used to paying taxes on $40k+ at one time, that can be pretty hard and the IRS will fuck your shit up #rekt if you dont cough up some change

Oh she is already playing the victim card. How long until this somehow gets linked to GamerGate and gamers are just attacking her for being a transwoman?

 

This is flat out fraud. Even if you think of Kickstarter as simple donations, you still have to be honest about what you're going to use the money for when asking for donations. The Red Cross can't just go "all that money you donated for people in need? Yeah I am going to donate that money to having a statue of Satan raise din Oklahoma".

Her Twitter page is filled with how she's chronically ill and starving to death. Yeah, seems legit.

This was a real dick move to pull. If I was backing her project, I would be pissed. She didn't even let the backers choose the charity, she didnt inform them, nothing.

She just used the money that wasnt truly hers (not until she finished the project) and gave it away to a very very very controversial "charity" owned by a very very very controversial person.

Not a smart move.

 

Update with a twitter from the "dev": http://archive.today/YICbE

 

Sidenote: GamerGate was never about women.

It was always about gaming journalism ethics following the supposed Zoe Quinn sleeping with games journalists to get good reviews to her shitty game.

Some bigger websites (like kotaku) were called on this and on the same day, 20+ articles on different gaming journalism websites were published claming gamers were dead.

This is the event that sparked #GG.

There were some claims of harassment from both sides, accusations of mysoginism against #GG, and suddently GG isnt about only ethics anymore with the birth of #notyourshield.

 

As of today, it still all a clusterf*ck of things, a lot of harassment from both sides. Its been worse on the Anti-gg side lately with them calling gg supporters worse than ISIS, rapists, calling them neckbeards and saying any women supporting gg are sockpuppets indocrinated by the patriarchist society. At least gg supporters have been more vocal and quick to denounce the harassment.

 

So yeah...all of this on twitter...the worst place to have a discussion on the internet. Its very hard to follow, gg is being quiet and picking fights while anti-gg is being vocal and dispersing from the point.

That somehow makes what she did okay? I don't think so. It's her own fault for not planning her Kickstarter campaign better to begin with. She should have known she would need to pay taxes on that Kickstarter income. Complete mismanagement of funds, and then she donates it to Feminist Frequency?

 

If she had donated the money to sick dying kids with cancer, then it might have been an acceptable temporary outcome. But that? Well... I'm not surprised people are angry.

 

Of course, that doesn't give them the right to harass her or threaten her (if that part is true, I honestly have no idea and have not looked into it).

Harassment is never the answer. An organized boycott or protest against a company sure, expressing your opinions publicly to friends or directly to her once is fine. Harassment on the scale a lot of people have experienced for a lot smaller perceived crimes is appalling and at least very close to criminal.

Not to say she isn't a douchebag though, there isn't a valid way to "undonate" money unless it was very recent (i.e. not processed yet, depending on the payment method) so I doubt she has much worth suing over, but there should be legal action made against her, to put it lightly, and unless all of the quotes are wrong or were all jokes and she secretly really is working on the project she'd almost certainly lose in court.

But again, harassment really doesn't help.

Heaven forbid she refund the capital and negate that taxes on it, if that's even where the claimed issue with the IRS stems from.

 

I have no money to give anyone.

FTFY version

I have no more of other peoples money to give anyone.

If I had to guess, she's probably figuring that if she plays the victim card hard enough, somebody like Polygon/Kotaku will pick up the story, make her sound incredibly sympathetic, and then she can start a Patreon account for all the people who feel bad for her.
