Auditorium Duet [official site], the Kickstarted sequel to pleasing musical puzzler Auditorium, is cancelled. Developers Cipher Prime say that, despite their best efforts and putting earnings from other projects into it, they simply didn't have enough money to finish Auditorium Duet. That's a shame.

Because being beautiful, atmospheric and pristine means something is more worthy of attention or something. There's a name we have for people like you: "Edge reader". By which we mean "Not entirely wrong". Because Auditorium is beautiful,…
