the weird thing is i'm not sure why pompi supports ron paul (if he does?) when ron paul said that he doesn't support foreign aid to israel and believes that all of palestine should be returned to the arabs

I meant working on their free time to produce more content for Kickstarter.
They are 9 people after all, they could have produced something more than a short track with average models...

I also saw their new video and it had nothing of the(what I now believe) are post processing video editing effects in the first video.

Also, a lot of people made games in their free time while having a real job, I don't think their workplace is so much more demanding than other normal workplaces.
I also don't think the game industry is such a hellish demanding place that you like to portray, sure there is a bit of crunch time but for MOST places it's nothing too crazy.
And I know people who worked at big game studios.

They also didn't specify what they were doing at all at those mega companies, it might have been very small parts, they might have been fired for being incompetent.
They didn't show their work at those companies, so you can't tell what they did there.

You're welcome to live in whatever kind of fantasy world you prefer.

They did however put their names up, so if you care so much about it you can check them out on Mobygames or wherever.

Well, I know a guy who worked on fable 2\3 and mass effect and he has very good and respectful work environment. He is not a "crunch time junkie".

Almost every consumer product based company will have crunch time... yea crunch time is not very good for the long run, but in MOST cases it's short and not too crazy.
I think you hear some excpetional stories and think the entuire industry is like that.
It's kind of like how people see a few succesful indie games like Minecraft and etc and think making money from indie games is very easy.

Also, what is a game jam or LD if not crunch time? Why are you not against that?

I looked up their names on moby games. Most of them have only one game at their resume, most of the games are before 2011, some even only from 2009.
They all seem like junior developers who lost their jobs... but that's just a guess.

Edit: You also didn't respond to why their second video look way simpler and plain compared to the first video.

No one loses their income if they decide to not enter or to drop out of LD.

Also, labour laws don't cover your free time. In fact, the entire point of having them is so you have free time to begin with.
