Gas Powered Games Kickstarter on track, situation looking much better
Some work left.
Gas Powered Games chief Chris Taylor has mentioned that situation is looking much better for their Kickstarter and he has seen sudden surges in funding after that video where he was thinking of closing down the project to not make more losses and save the team.
“I don’t want to make any assumptions at this point, but things look much better, and I think it’s still going to be a long road ahead, but we’re prepared to work very hard to make this happen,” he told Polygon.
“I’m already making phone calls and setting up meetings to talk to key people about coming back, to see the campaign through. At least now, everyone has their eyes wide open, no surprises.”
He has also revealed that it’s now about saving the company and make a game second. The Kickstarter has garnered $280k in funding but there’s still a lot of way to go to reach the $1.1 million goal.
“It never occurred to me that the industry would rally like it did, and that people would then invest, not only in Wildman, but in helping me to save GPG and the team (in fact, it’s probably the other way around, and I think the Kickstarter has become about saving a company and the game is a distant second).”
