Earlier this month we brought you the story of Precinct, a video game that had a cancelled Kickstarter campaign to its name. The team behind the game had turned to WordPress crowdfunding plugin IgnitionDeck in order to roll their own funding platform solution.
The team has now cancelled this second campaign as well. It seems the market is soft for Precinct at this time.
In a letter to backers posted to the funding web site, Robert Lindley and the Precinct team thanked their backers for support.
Each member of our team has done their very best to make Precinct a reality. We put every effort into making a crowdfunding campaign work but we have decided to end the Precinct campaign effective today. Your generous support not only made Precinct a possibility, it also gave us the fire to try and make this work when the going got hard. Thank you.
… We’re fighters and fought our best. Unfortunately, our best wasn’t good enough to overcome the challenges with crowdfunding Precinct. Our new approach attracted some terrific supporters and we are grateful. However, we simply don’t have the momentum needed to meet the requirements of this project.
They didn’t rule out a return to the crowdfunding world in the future, though…
Depending on the situation, we may decide to try again someday. The backing community are wonderfully supportive of Jim Walls making a new game. Likewise, our team remains passionate about Precinct and are hopeful there is a way to make Precinct a reality in the future.
