      It seems like posting any further comments here is futile, this page is more likely a gravestone for a canceled project. So, farewell everyone...

      Cancelling was a huge mistake. As you know KING Art Games, you usually accrue more in the last days than the beginning. If memory serves me correctly you achieved around 60K in the first three days, that means you would have achieved probably double. Never ever pay attention to kicktraq it's not even REMOTELY accurate. I've seen campaigns funded despite kicktraq predictions!

      Good luck anyway.

      Mal abgesehen davon, das 250.000 Euro sehr hoch für solch ein relativ kleines Zeitfenster ist, kann ich kann Jens Ewald nur zustimmen.

    4. Jens Ewald on November 4, 2017

      Das scheitern ist hier nicht aus mangelndem Interesse der potentiellen Kunden, sondern aus der Tatsache entstanden, dass Playa hier nicht selbst die Werbetrommel mehr gerührt hat. SIch nur auf die bisherigen Backer und Mundpropaganda zu verlassen war nicht zielführend.

      Und die Kampagne vorzeitig abzubrechen ist ebenfalls falsch. Etliche Kickstarter-Projekte liefen in der hälfte schlecht und wurden in den letzten 34 bis 48 Stunden dann doch n och gefundet. Sich auf ein Statisik-Tool allein zu verlassen und vorzeitig das Handtuch zu werfen ist ein Fehler.

      Schade, aber nun ist der Drops gelutscht und das Ding hier Geschichte.

      Sehr schade :( Das sah wirklich gut aus.

      Ich denke mal es hat auch daran gelegen dass ich auf den großen Gamingseiten höchstens kleine news über das Projekt gesehen habe. Kickstarter ist aber auch generell schwieriger geworden.

      Sehr schade :(

      Sehr schade -:(
      Ich hatte schon BouT2 über Kickstarter mit unterstützt (war ein tolles Adventure) und war hellauf begeistert von diesem Projekt. Hoffentlich gibt es doch noch eine Chance für Shakes&Fidget, und hoffentlich auch für BouT3 denn meiner Ansicht nach fehlt der Story noch ein abschließender dritter Teil, der die Geschichte zu Ende erzählt.
      Ich finde es auch schade, dass der Kickstarter zu früh aufgehört hat. Eigentlich muss man es so machen wie beim Fussball: das Spiel ist erst zu Ende wenn abgepfiffen wird. Solange alles mobilisieren was geht.
      Ich habe über PCGH von diesem Projekt erfahren - mir fehlte in der Werbung für dieses Projekt auch die Tatsache, dass dieses Projekt auch dafür gedacht ist, Gespräche für BouT3 aufzunehmen - evtl. hätte das noch mehr gezogen.
      Auf alle Fälle bin ich beim nächsten Kickstarter-adventure wieder mit dabei, hoffentlich heissen die Projekte dann BouT3 und erneut Shakes&Fidget.
      Nicht aufgeben Jungs !!!

      Ich bin der Meinung das dieses Projekt zu früh abgebrochen wurde. Die King-Art Mitarbeiter haben doch erst vor einen Tag in den Kommentaren geschrieben das Sie versuchen die Gründe herauszufinden. Und anstatt das Projekt über Youtuber etc. mehr zu bewerben, brechen Sie sofort ab.

      I am sad that you had to cancel the project. I am sure people still want funny adventure-games, just maybe not one with this name (so with a name of a media franchise they don't know, because the other publications were directed towards other target audiences).

    11. Stefan on November 3, 2017

      Nooooooo..... oh well. maybe with a new trailer and a few tiers between the $30 en $90 it might help. I really would like to see this game being made. Maybe FIG is indeed an option as suggested. And maybe try to show some ingame stuff.

      Sad! I was really excited about the game.
      Keep fingers crossed for new projects in the near future. Cheers

    13. Elfwyn on November 3, 2017

      Sorry to hear that the campaign had to be cancelled. :-(

      I personally have to admit that It has been a long time since I heard about the Shakes&Fidget webcomics and my contribution was mainly inspired due to the high quality (and good voice acting) Adventures that King Art has done in the past.

      I guess that there have to be a number of "hype-factors" that draw kickstarter-backers to a certain project and that in this case too few of those factors where triggered.

      I don't think that a Shakes&Fidget Adventure is a bad Idea if done right and I have no reason to believe otherwise.

    14. Michael Krumm on November 3, 2017

      Ohne das böse zu meinen, aber war der verfrühte Abbruch nicht etwas überreagiert? Ist oft genug so, dass die Spiele am Anfang gut hinlegen und es dann etwas braucht, es waren ja noch grob 2 Wochen.

      Sei wie es will, ich finde es schade und würde mich freuen, wenn die anderen Finanzierungsoptionen was werden.

      Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear you've lost faith in this project! I really, really, REALLY hope you will keep making adventures! The BoUT series is high among the very best adventures that I know, seriously. I loved it to bits, spent more on the BoUT 2 Kickstarter than I had ever before.

      (Incidentally writing this while taking a break from playing Secret of Monkey Island on a 386. Perhaps you could put a "rubber tree" spin on this project?)

      Sehr schade :( Hatte auch irgendwie das Gefühl, die KS-Seite war nicht so gut beworben? Mir fällt jetzt auf, dass ich auch gar nicht wusste, das tbout2 ebenfalls ein KS war (auch nichts von gehört damals). Ich hoffe jedenfalls, dass es irgendwie eine Möglichkeit gibt, das ganze doch noch anzuleiern. Bin jedenfalls beim nächsten Mal wieder dabei! :)

Auf jeden Fall werde ich das Projekt weiter verfolgen und es auf jeden Fall wieder unterstützen, wenn es doch noch zum Tragen kommen sollte. Ich wünsche euch weiterhin viel Erfolg und drücke allen die Daumen!

      Sorry to see this campaign fail, but I’m sure KING Art will return with a new idea and have more success again.

    21. Shiroco-Librarian of Unwritten Tales 542 on November 3, 2017

      Sad to see this happening ;/ At least it wasn't a campaign run by KingArt that failed ;) So, they still have their streak of succesfull campaigns going! Hopefully they'll be able to make some adventure games in the future. This month I'll definetly buy the Black Mirror reboot. Hopefully they'll do the game justice (the first one was amazing).

      @KING Art Games

      I wouldn't pay any attention to Kicktraq, it's far from accurate and you have had three very successful campaigns under your belt. Keep the campaign going for now, you never know things can change in the final week :)

    25. Jordan Joestar on November 2, 2017

      @KING Art Game
      As I said many posts ago, as an old player of the browser game (7 years, since November 2010) I want that this game will be brought to the light, but if we can't try to make a campaign through FIG. I'm sure that you will reach the goal and I, like many others, have our cool Collector's Edition with metal case. :P

      @all
      As everybody with access to kicktraq will know, if things continue as they are right now, the goal will not be met. While I can't go into detail, I can say that we are looking into possibilities that allow us to make this game.
      You can help too if you contact your streamer, youtuber or person who might be interested in spreading the word of this kickstarter. This happened last week and it helped! :D

      @Adam Jagiello
      This is the reason why the first stretchgoal are "additional translations". German and English can more or less be made by us us, but additional languages will be tied to what the people want. We need to be 100% sure to meet the demand of the majority, because every translation is tied to more costs and more work.

    29. Markus Lange on November 1, 2017

      We need the spot on TV, or at least before some Youtube Videos.

    30. Michael R. on November 1, 2017

      Wow! I expected to see some replies from KAG. Yesterday was a bank holiday here in Germany, so I haven't expected anything yesterday. But nothing today is strange.

    31. Jonathan Hopkins /Svarun Entertainment on November 1, 2017

      I would invest in this one for the look alone. Outstanding

    33. Brian Tague Order of the Dreaming Goat on October 31, 2017

      I love King Art. Would be sad if this doesn't meet it's goal. One of best adventure game developers. Unfortunately in the United States, adventure games and role playing games, both very story focused take a back burner to boring shooter games that are all the rage. I don't get it. Wish there was more market for adventure games and role playing in the US as I want this campaign to succeed really bad. Have a lot of faith in King Art.

    34. Shiroco-Librarian of Unwritten Tales 542 on October 31, 2017

      Just noticed that KingArt is doing a reboot for Black Mirror. I loved the original one and hope the reboot is going to be as good. Thank god it is in good hands :)

      @this project
      I'm almost done with my thesis and I'll try to get some of my friends to back this game. Not sure if it's going to help that much but I'll try at least. P&C have a special spot in my heart and I love to puzzle my way through them.

      This game is in majority supported by S&F game players. And this game is very popular in Germany, Poland and Czech Republic (according to number of S&F servers in each country).
      Why then, there is no support for Polish and Czech language as default?

    37. Michael R. on October 29, 2017

      A reward in the 50-60€ area might help a bit as some 33€ baker might increase the pledge. There is a huge gap between the 35€ and the 90€ ones. Most likely this might not bring the project over the goal, still it might help.

    40. Jordan Joestar on October 28, 2017

      If the campaign will not reach the goal I think that Playa Games should launch another one, but through FIG.
      I received the news about this Kickstarter campaign on the messages box of my S&F account, so I can't say that it isn't well adverticed at all.

    41. Brian Tague Order of the Dreaming Goat on October 28, 2017

      I agree, this campaign is not advertised much at all. It needs more publicity. This looks like a good campaign, it just needs more traction and visibility in order to be successful.

    42. Jens Ewald on October 28, 2017

      If you like to see this game get made then you should do more PR. For example: I myself didn't hear anything about this campaign after the initial news on one (1) website. Don't only rely on word of mouth, so something more offensive.

    43. Jordan Joestar on October 27, 2017

      I play S&F since November 2010 and now I hope to see this point and click game on Steam.
      Good luck! :)

      The crazy comedy adventure game with the two biggest… uhh… boldest? No. Smartest… nicest? Heroes… persons of the fantasy genre.“

      ...and earlier today you were also featured in the Staff Picks emailer from the Backerkit Team:
      “Shakes and Fidget Game
      “The Naked Gun meets Spaceballs” in this fun 2D point and click adventure!“

      Thank you also for sharing the love yourself by recommending other campaigns in your updates, always appreciate paying it forward and finding more great campaigns to back! :)

      FYI S&F doesn’t come up in Kickstarter when searching “Point & Click”. Normally I search for Point & Click in Kickstarter for new games.

      IDK if it would help to add that to the search terms at all, but thought I would mention it.

      When this game gets funded it looks like it will be the funniest and best P&CAG since Deponia! I’m so excited and can’t wait to play!!

      It will have exactly as many pages as the printed Shakes & Fidget comic. I don't have mine to check, but the internet tells me it has 80 pages.

    49. Michael A. on October 26, 2017

      @Shiroco-Librarian of Unwritten Tales 542
      It's just like me. Until this campaign I didn't know Shakes & Fidget at all. Accordingly, I have no binding to it. But I'm a big fan of KingArt's work.

      @all
      So far KingArt has always done a fantastic job. I've already baked a project from them, which went very well. I can therefore say to anyone interested that any doubts or concerns here are unfounded.
