Wildman Kickstarter Cancelled By GPG

In an update, about an hour ago, on the Kickstarter page for Gas Powered Game's Wildman, the developers have decided to cancel the campaign before it ran out of time in another couple days. They will be trying to focus on other ways to keep Gas Powered Games running.

With only about 3 days left to the campaign, they had not quite reached 50% of their funding goal of $1.1 million, with funding sitting at $504,120. Just a few days after the game was revealed, GPG was hit with substantial layoffs and Chris Taylor said the funding drive had become more about saving the company than making the game.

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

Hopefully they will be able to come up with some creative ideas for financing as the Wildman game looked like it had real potential.
