You make it sound as if "their customers" were a specific group. But a company selects their customer segment with the product they make. This is especially true for companies producing art.
Does David Bowie like his own music? You bet he does, he specifically made music he would like 😉
Can you imagine if Bowie sold millions of copies of his first album and then just handed fans an unfinished product that a lot of people and critics deemed as terrible, and then promised that he'd replace that album for free in a year's time with a spectacular finished album? And then 8 years later he still failed to deliver? Do you really want to compare the genius of Bowie to a house flipper turned independent game dev?
