It's Jetpacks vs Giant in this vibrant, story driven single- and multi-player spiritual successor to MDK & Giants:Citizen Kabuto.
by Rogue Rocket Games
I heard about MDK and Giants from TotalBiscuit he once praised the old game, you probably should try contacting him he seemed very fond of that game
I hope you succeed elsewhere. I really liked MDK and Giants.
I'm sorry the KS didn't gain traction, if nothing else the publicity push got the game greenlit and out there. The novelty of crowdsourcing has worn off in recent years. it seems only celebrities or heavily promoted advertised campaigns gain traction, especially for software projects. The early demo looks like a blast, keep polishing it and I'm certain good fortune will follow.
Best luck for the future of FW, from a fan of the original Giants. I agree on all the points on your update, and that's a good thing because you'll be able to fix them all :)
My only email account that I remember to check is mostly for work and family stuff, so KS updates are good for me.... But I'll try and check out the blog, too.
@Jabberwok : canceled campaign can still post updates :) But there's also the newsletter on their website ( http://www.first-wonder.com/ )
Can cancelled campaigns not post updates? I'd really like to hear about new developments on this.
Sorry this was so hard for you guys. You have an amazing concept that will satisfy much more than just the old Giants fans. I know it's tough to keep working without having this backing, but I hope it all works out for you. And as much as I want this game, I'm sorry for all the work you put into this, and the disappointment you must be feeling. But I respect you because you're persevering. Thank you guys.
Sad news but the way it was going with few backers i am not surprised. Kickstarter can be great for getting money but at times getting yourself heard through all the different projects ca be difficult. Wish you guys all the best for the future glad your still keeping the dream alive and will cya in the future.
Sad to hear this one didn't work out this time around, but I am still happy that the project will still continue on with many more lessons learned from the experience and I hope one day to see the finished product and with how dedicated your team has been, I'm sure it'll become a reality.
Good luck and keep in touch.
I was really worried about this one making it on Kickstarter in the state the campaign was in, but I'm relieved that you've taken a level-headed approach to this, identified the campaign's problems and are committed to making the game happen in the future regardless. Heck yeah!
Seriously, Giants gave me such fantastic gaming memories and this looks just superb as a true successor. Just keep us backers informed well in advance if you plan to return to Kickstarter, so we'll be prepared to do our bit with an early social media blitz.
Will look forward to picking up the game on Steam.
Thanks for great past titles. Best wishes.
Sad to see this one fail, but it sounds like it has been a valuable experience nonetheless. I hope you're able to turn everything you've learned from this campaign into something very successful in the near future. And if you decide to take another shot at crowdfunding in the future, I'll be back. Good luck with the game! I can't wait to play it.
It's always sad to see a campaing canceled (hmm ok, I mean an interesting one, not all :p). But it's nice to see that the project still lives :) If I may suggest, if you go the crowdfunding route again, fig.co can be a good alternative. And maybe reaching to all the backers when the time comes to have their opinion about your new campaign (if there is one of course)
Anyway, good luck :D
I hope we will see this come to fruition. This game looks to be a breath of fresh air.
Too bad to see that this project failed to gain traction. All the best to the team and I'm looking forward to hear from you in the future.
