With only three more days until Red Ash’s Kickstarter comes to an end, it looks like the game will not receive its full $800,000. But no worries Keiji Inafune fans, the project will still get off the ground thanks to Chinese digital entertainment company FUZE Entertainment.
The game, which was created by Inafune and the team at Comcept USA, surfaced on the crowdfunding platform last month. The project has only reached $485,000. According to a recent update, FUZE decided to step in and make sure that Red Ash will be available for PS4 and Xbox One:
“We know this is sudden news. Are you surprised? How have we decided to develop the game before the Kickstarter campaign finishes? Well, that’s thanks to the support of FUZE Entertainment.”
“We said it before: we have been working very hard behind-the-scenes for RED ASH! Alongside our Kickstarter campaign, we’ve been in negotiations with hardware makers and development partners, keeping your feedback and comments in mind. We hoped by introducing the world setting, art documents, creators involved, our latest prototype, and more, we could convey the charm of RED ASH. And it seems like that work has paid off with FUZE Entertainment deciding to join your ranks as backers, in a major way!”
Noting what’s going to happen next for Red Ash, the game’s team explained:
“First off, the contribution of FUZE is a done deal. We can officially confirm that “The KalKanon Incident” will be developed to completion, with the initial goals for game content (8 hours), along with ports to BOTH PlayStation 4 and Xbox One!
“The rights to RED ASH will be retained by comcept. We’re excited to find such a great partner in FUZE who believes in our vision in its pure form. In addition, comcept will retain rights to creative discretion and decisions in game development.”
In regards to what happens to Kickstarter’s funds, they added:
“The Kickstarter campaign is going 100% towards more content! Consider your pledge a contribution to stretch goals from here on out. Exactly what are those stretch goals? We’re sorry to say that will have to wait a little while longer! Like we said, we’re very busy with many behind-the-scenes things over here, and we apologize if you feel left in the dark.
“As you can see, the things we have brewing that are keeping us occupied are BIG, and all for the purpose of getting you RED ASH in its biggest, bestest form. That’s the reason we’re less communicative than we’d like to be! We know we’re in the final days of our campaign, but we’d like to ask fans to continue their support of RED ASH! Your money is going towards 100% content now.”
