Why Cancel the Highways & Byways Campaign?

Posted by Brandon Rollins (Creator)

Hello backers,

Today, I come bearing news you probably were not hoping for. I have canceled the Highways & Byways campaign.

To all of you who have backed this campaign, shared on social media, or written words of encouragement on this page or elsewhere: thank you so much! You are awesome, I love your enthusiasm, and it’s been wonderful to witness.

I’ve canceled the campaign because it’s well past the halfway mark and we’re sitting at 30%. It’s really unlikely that the campaign is going to fund, so I’ve decided that there is more to gain from devoting the next two weeks toward game development than there is from continuing this Kickstarter campaign.

If you’d like to see a more in-depth analysis of my decision-making process in canceling this campaign, keep an eye out for a post on my blog this Friday at 9:00 am EDT. I have a long-form write-up that goes into much more detail.

If you’re still interested in Highways & Byways, there are two things I want you to know.

  • You can play it right now on Tabletop Simulator. The demo is free if you have a copy of Tabletop Simulator.
  • I am investigating the cost of doing a small print-on-demand run of Highways & Byways. I still need to run some numbers to see if this is feasible. Either way, I will be doing another update on this matter. I’m open to your suggestions.

Even with this campaign’s cancellation, there are a lot of ways you can keep up with Pangea Games and my future endeavors. I’ll still be making games and writing about making games – I’ll just be smarter about it next time :)

      @Will and @Gabriel, thank you very much for your support! I'm still working on the possibility of a small print run. No matter what, though, there are more games to be made and I've learned a lot making this one :)

      Very sorry to see this, but I understand. I would still be interested in a print on demand version as well (pending cost) :)

      Hey Tom and Nicholas - thank you for wishing me well even as the campaign is canceled. I'm still looking into a POD version. Hopefully, we can make that happen - it will come down to the cost of some components in small quantities.

      Would still be interested in a PoD version, and will look forward to your next campaign.

      Sorry this didn't catch on. Best of luck in the future, Brandon.
