The Stomping Land is no longer available for purchase through Steam, and users are crying foul on a developer doing a very good impression of having absconded with its crowdfunding.
The Stomping Ground’s Early Access build has not been updated since shortly after its May release, and now no longer offers a purchase option.
You can still visit the project’s Steam page but there’s no way to obtain the game.
We don’t know whether Valve or SuperCrit closed sales of The Stomping Ground; stay tuned for updates.
Developer SuperCrit has been silent since July, when Eurogamer reports the project’s PR representative quit, publicly calling out developer Alex “Jig” Fundora for being “not very communicative”. Fundora, an industry veteran with a credit on Skyrim, has not made an update since then.
Fundora’s history gives us hope that the project’s silence is nothing to worry about, but fans fear the worst. The Stomping Land was funded via Kickstarter in May 2013, raising $114,000 – hugely over its $20,000 goal – and has been on sale for $25 via Steam since then. A lot of people have forked out to see the dinosaur survival adventure come to fruition, and they’re understandably livid at the prospect of that never happening.
It’s pretty hard to keep the faith and stay positive with such a lack of communication from the developer; hopefully Fundora will respond to press queries soon.
