Wildman kickstarter cancelled by Gas Powered Games

Chris Taylor's Wildman, after all the ups and downs, has finally been cancelled.

The game received $500,000 of its $1.1 million goal and had a few days left before the decision was taken. Taylor discussed pulling the plug:

"At this point, it makes sense for us to focus our attention on other ways to keep Gas Powered Games running," he wrote on Kickstarter.

"Unfortunately, we are unable to share any specifics in public. When we have news to share, we will be posting it on our site. If you want status updates, or if you want to continue discussing Wildman and/or this Kickstarter, please consider migrating over to forums.gaspowered.com."

Although this comes as no real surprise, it's still sad to see the game amount to nothing. Did you pledge a donation? Let us know.

Didn't pledge...well what can I say, it wasn't the sort of game I typically like? IT it was SC3 or something I might have.

At least they didn't go ahead and release rubbish as others would have.

True dat. Do wonder what the options at this stage are for them.

"SupCom 3" is the only one I can think, or "Demigod 2". I'd be happy either...or both.

I assume they've finally found a publisher for Kings and Castles or something like that.

Or they sell the rights of the IP to Uwe Boll...

I don't generally put in on kickstarters. There's a couple I wish I had, but generally it feels like putting in a preorder with no proof the game will be released let alone be good.

Like when EB took preorders for Duke Nukem Forever... **before** people started making jokes about it never getting released.

Preorders is also something I don't do. I've never seen a game run out on release day. I can see the benefit to the publisher and retailer, they get an interest free loan. As a consumer you get... maybe some lame dlc? 10% off the price even though there'll probably be a 25% off sale in the first few months of release? I would have to be gagging at the bit for a game to do a preorder, and I have difficulty imagining any game that could get me that excited.
