What happened to Devi Ever? That is a pretty loaded question, and according to who you speak with, the answers will vary. Let’s just say that it was a long drawn out saga, involving many online arguments. Potential customers are still owed money from builds that never emerged.
Devi Ever 2022
Devi Ever has officially announced their return to building pedals in 2022, after leaving the business back in 2018. This was done via a new YouTube video entitled “what happened to Devi Ever?” Devi Ever, now Izzi Mouse, stated “It is a part of me trying to make ends meet financially, but I’m not doing it as a career path. I’m doing it for personal reasons.”
“I’m excited to hopefully set up a manufacturing process [where] I can enjoy building and feel proud of doing – and if I can’t do that, I’m not going to do it. I don’t have plans currently to make it a big deal, I just want to do it for fun and in small batches.”
The History of Devi Ever
Back in 2012, a Kickstarter for an open-source cartridge-based system called the Devi Ever Console successfully raised over $40,000, but never materialised and left many people out of pocket. The then Devi Ever admitted to having “mismanaged” the funding and their own time in a 2013 update of the project. Later, in 2015, the brand was sold to Dwarfcraft. This was followed by Devi Ever being bought back by Mouse in 2016 with the following statement.
“When I can pay you back, I will, and until that point, I can’t.” – Devi Ever 2016
This could be an interesting year for fans of Devi Ever pedals, as when they were good, they were really good. It just so happened that often they never appeared, and the whole debacle involved a lot of drama.
The video has now been pulled from YouTube this evening, hopefully we will hear more soon.
