The best hoax I can find from Hyde is a gibberish Ted Talk he gave while dressed like a Roman centurion, and of course, trying and failing to steal .5k from a bunch of bronies.
After this truth finally came out, (And apparently he was bragging about his big win before he’d actually won) the project filled with people leaving “hilarious” comments, by people trying to maintain the hoax, and by people trying to troll the hoaxers, and by yet others trying to parody bronies for sport.
(If anyone finds his logic seductive, let me introduce you to something called Steam Early Access, which seems to be doing quite well.) Pretty soon accusations of hoax start flying, and he releases a laughably faked “gameplay video”, and starts trying to play the victim.
When this thing was finally canceled there was still four thousand dollars in pledges standing for this obvious hoax.
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).
Either this man is lying, he can’t do basic arithmetic, or he started his “ultimate brony dating sim” about a year before their were any bronies!
Still, with all the time he must have accomplished something, right? How does he react when people ask to see this amazing 95% finished game? He acts like a sarcastic Jack-ass who’s unfamiliar with how Kickstarter works.
If I were to make a MLP dating sim this is the phrasing I might use, not because I’m out to scam people but because I’m not very familiar with the cultural norms of the MLP community.
