Chris Taylor and Gas Powered Games made a valiant effort to save Gas Powered Games using Kickstarter, but the crowdfunding initiatve for Wildman has now officially been halted. With two days to go in the funding period and slightly less than half of the $1.1 million goal earned, the studio is calling it quits on the campaign.
All is not lost for Gas Powered Games, not yet. An update on the Kickstarter page announcing the cancellation lays everything out. "At this point, it makes sense for us to focus our attention on other ways to keeep Gas Powered Games running. Unfortunately, we are unable to share any specifics in public. When we have news to share, we will be posting it on our site."
So it sounds like there's more to come from the Dungeon Siege and Supreme Commander studio. The final Kickstarter concludes with a somewhat cryptic thank you: "Your passion and hard work put us in a position to write this exciting new chapter in the history of GPG." Fans are invited to continue discussing Wildman in the Gas Powered Games forums.
