Hey Everyone, 

Thank you to everyone who backed the campaign today and helped spread the word about this awesome sci-fi euro game. We are cancelling this current Kickstarter campaign for Galaxy Hunters. Even though we are cancelling it, we will not be giving up on this project and will be launching again at a later date. 

Kickstarter is a fantastic platform that allows for publishers to bring projects to light and let the consumer give feedback, pledge their money and help shape the game to what they want to see. With the current climate on Kickstarter and how this game is currently designed, we feel it's best to take a pause and take a look at how we can make this project even better and more in line with what consumers and the industry are looking for. We love this game and want to make it the best it can be. 

Be sure to stay tuned for when we bring this game back to Kickstarter and when we show this game at conventions over the summer. We appreciate all the feedback we received today and over the past months as we previewed this game online. 

Thank you to everyone who backed the campaign today and be sure to stay tuned for the future of Galaxy Hunters!

      I think people were catching on to how bad the pricing was to individual backers at $100 when the retail pledge was $50 per copy and IDW is still making a profit. In addition, IDW wasn't offering a group pledge like that one to backers so it was $100 + shipping or nothing. I was excited about the game but it didn't feel too good knowing they were making over 100% profit when the whole idea of backing is to be rewarded for risking money on a project you have no guarantee of seeing come to life. At least that's my opinion of the situation since they haven't issued a formal statement =/

      Yeah, I'm a little baffled, 14k in first few hours seemed like they were on track for funding easily. Don't know why the cancellation - makes me sad.

      That's the quickest hook I've ever seen...

      Aww man, lost my backer #1 spot for the next campaign most likely lol, but whatever you do to make things better, I'm all for it, I think this easily shows your are listening to backers (although I didn't make many comments lol), and want what's best for the game!

      I guess that's for the best if you rethink like a lot the price tag which was just not right for what was in the box (and I just discovered Starship Samourai, and I understand it less than before).
