If at first you don’t succeed, pause and have a good think. Do you really want to make a video game about knights with dirty diesel-powered armour and jetpacks fighting orcs and goblins? You may very well! In that case, put your head down and work, rethink your crowdfunding campaign, then come back with something people can play first. Bish bash bosh, here’s DieselStörmers again.
Having cancelled its first Kickstarter at less than 15% of the $500,000 goal (£300 grand-ish) last August, Black Forest Games have now launched a second campaign for the game formerly known as Project Ravensdale. This time it’s far more sensible, looking for $50,000 (£30 grand) and offering a playable prototype so potential backers can have a bash.
