I don't understand this strategy at all. Current C2 users are all waiting to see an actual new feature. The features listed so far are fine, but they're all things that have essentially no effect on current users. We're already working without all of these things, because we don't need them. Meanwhile, as impatient humans who like stability and to know what software we're going to be working with in the future, we're feeling disappointed and looking into other game makers.
and for any new user looking to find a new game engine to try out, they're going to be comparing features to other engines, and since hardly anything is listed, they will immediately move on (especially when they take a look at the $*#&storm that is the forums)
Ever seen an advertisement on tv? notice how long they last? there's a reason for that...
There are those infomercials that last an hour... Ever watched one? or bought the product?
If it were me. I'd drop a C3 bomb... Once and done. After that, (if it's as awesome as it should be) the community will sell it for you!
So I ask:
Who is the slow trickle of info helping?
Scirra's competitors is the only answer I can come up with...
