I was a consultant for a bit. It was soul crushing
I think you had it backwards. You were supposed to be crushing the souls.
CodeProject sent a marketing email today for ossum which "streamlines development, from idea to release." I thought, "hmm, that sounds interesting." So, I clicked the link and I cannot for the life of me even tell what the software does.
It has a link for "Why ossum?" but that just scrolls down the page to a paragraph of buzzwords. I click "Pricing" and it scrolls down the page to the pricing section. "Got ideas" is a feedback page.
"Resources" does not have much helpful.
I can't find anywhere that shows basic screenshots or videos or even descriptions of what the software even does.

We're working with them at the moment and this kind of feedback is gold. It's a very common thing where a company or marketing team are totally into what they do and what their product is capable of and, well, kinda forget the rest of the world isn't as obsessed as they are with what they do.
So we remind them: there's lots of options for us developers. Lots. Tell us what problem you're trying to solve, how it helps me, what it does, and skip the buzzword bingo.
More often than not there's a sheepish "ahhh...right. Oops" and they tweak.
Not that any of us would ever be so totally absorbed in what we're doing that we forget the rest of the world can't read our minds and be as excited as we are.
