Fraudulent €7000 Pledge Ruins Kickstarter Success For Netherlands Video Game Dimension Drive

Dimension Drive 4

Last month, Netherlands-based studio 2Awesome Studio took to famous crowdfunding platform Kickstarter with a mission to raise €30,000 for its new video game Dimension Drive. 

Dimension Drive 5The game was described as comic book-styled space adventure set in a multidimensional universe. It features a teleportation mechanic that allows you to fight on two battlefields at once, and gameplay combining shooting, defense and fast puzzling action.

Other features include:

  • Sci-fi Adventure
  • 4 Game Modes
  • Energy Management
  • Advanced Scoring System
  • Teleportation

Before nearing the end of the campaign’s run (and being just thousands away from the initial goal), one single back surprised the startup by donating €7,000 towards the game, knocking the total amount to over €30,000.

Sharing their excitement for the huge donation, the 2Awesome team shared on Twitter:

Unfortunately, heartbreak came when Kickstarter alerted 2Awesome that the donation has appeared to be fraudulent. The company addressed the situation on the social media outlet:

 

Although feeling a bit defeated by the news, 2Awesome thanked its fans for all the kind words during the situation:

Hopefully in time, 2Awesome can recover from this and give crowdfunding a second chance.
