The spiritual successor to Giants: Citizen Kabuto, First Wonder, is officially cancelled. After their Kickstarter campaign fell short, the company hoped they would find some other form of funding, but sadly it never happened.
Below is an excerpt from the e-mail sent to backers…
“After the kickstarter failed we looked for other opportunities and partnerships to keep the development going. While your donations helped we were still self-funding 95% of the project directly out of pocket. The amount of investment needed to get the game to the next stage was too large for us to handle by ourselves.
“We had some interesting conversations but regardless of how excited some were for the project it came down to numbers and risk. For publishers, the kickstarter showed we just didn’t have or couldn’t find the audience.”
