Primordial Oops: GPG Declares Wildman Extinct

If you've been following the sordid tale of Chris Taylor and Gas Powered Games' Wildman, you probably won't find this one all that surprising. After Death's cold, potentially velociraptor-like claw nearly cut down the Kickstarter mere days after it launched, Taylor and co opted to stick it out. Unfortunately, even the probable doom of GPG wasn't enough to pied piper $1.1 million out of unwilling…

Feature: "There was no master plan"

Chris Taylor On The Brink

Chris Taylor just roared in my face. Neon dance lights are pulsing, loud, bass-heavy music is thumping, and Taylor's sudden vocal-chord-straining shout is reverberating off our empty corner of a DICE after-party. Intense. That's how I'd describe the scene. It's also how I'd describe Chris Taylor.

Supreme Desktop Commander: Wildman’s Mad Mod Tools

Will Wildman cross the financial finish line before Kickstarter strikes 12 and Gas Powered Games turns back into a pumpkin? Who knows? Crazier things have happened. But, more often than not, they haven't. That's kinda why they're, you know, crazy - not normal. But Wildman isn't the only thing doing laps in GPG's primordial ooze. As Chris Taylor told us, they've also got something called…

THQ, Wildman, & The Problem Of Voting With Our Wallets

Vote with your wallet. We constantly preach it as an approach that actually Makes Important Things Happen, but does it? Does it really? It's such an easy be-all, end-all argument to toss out, but things are rarely that simple. The recent death of THQ and potential failure of Gas Powered Games' Wildman represent very tangible examples of how "vote with your wallet" can screech and…

It’s Settled: Wildman Will Go On

"Will it ever actually come out, though?" is a question that's often asked of many Kickstarter-funded games, but not like this. In the blink of an eye, Gas Powered Games' Wildman went from fossil-fueled hopeful to dinosaur with a very large meteor breathing down its neck. After 40-some-odd layoffs, Chris Taylor was left reconsidering if it was even worthwhile to gamble the rest of his…

Gas Powered Facing Major Layoffs, May Halt Kickstarter

Right then, let me try laying this one out on paper, because I'm still having a hard time comprehending it. So, a few days ago, Chris Taylor and Gas Powered Games announced a rather massive Kickstarter. Wildman, they said, would need $1.1 million in its tank before it could get off the ground, but they had it all planned out. So we got some gameplay…

Quickstarter: Wildman Gets First Gameplay Footage

Chris Taylor can talk. I know, for I have witnessed it. Wild-eyed, he spoke of grandiose plans for both games and operating systems, then (perhaps somewhat paradoxically) explained why he no longer believes bigger means better. As ever with Kickstarters, though, the question of whether or not he can back up his Supreme-Commander-sized words remains. Fortunately, while Wildman's still quite early in development, Gas Powered…

Chris Taylor’s 180: Bigger Equals Better “Flawed Thinking”

Yesterday, Chris Taylor announced his new evolution-thwacking prehistoric RTS-RPG Wildman, so naturally, we talked about that until we, ourselves, evolved extra mouths so we could more efficiently talk about evolution. But what about, well, everything else? In ye olde year of 2010, after all, Taylor and co debuted Kings and Castles, a "biggest ever" fantasy RTS with dragons, chickens, and hopefully - for the sake…

Chris Taylor On GPG’s Prehistoric RTS-RPG, Wildman

Wildman! That's fun to say, isn't it? I like bellowing it at the top of my lungs while charging down sun-spattered hills, colossal bonking club aloft. Of course, I was doing that long before Chris Taylor and Gas Powered Games announced a fantastical prehistoric RTS/MOBA/RPG with the very same title, so now it's actually relevant. But how exactly do all those puzzle pieces fit together?…

Wild, Man: Gas Powered Games Kickstarting Wildman

Gas Powered Games wants $1.1 million of your dollars. I also want $1.1 million of your dollars, but - instead of spending them on a mansion made of trampolines and a pony that's also a rocketship - the Dungeon Siege and Supreme Commander dev is hoping to bring an RTS-RPG called Wildman to life. It's about prehistoric evolution, but with an amusingly silly twist. "What…
