There's a promise of more Lovecraftian tales to come, if this can get off the ground. I think Agustin Cordes and his Senscape team are the people who will do it right. So, it's not just this game, but future ones on the line.

I can up my pledge if it gets closer but sadly I can't fund it. I always wonder why some can get a huge amount and others can't.

I upped my pledge, but we're entering the last few days now and it's not looking good. Lovecraft's stories are a perfect fit for Agustin, but he says the series will be shelved if this Kickstarter does not fund. :(

I'm hoping for a Halloween surge. razz

I was going to pledge but they said that the Email has already been taken. How can that be. I don't remember pledging.

If you're talking about logging into Kickstarter, maybe you pledged to some other game a while back. If you've lost your password, you can have it reset

It's not as tough as it is sad. sad I wish I understood what makes things take off like a rocket and get funded much more than it's worth. I wish this would have gone through.

Quote:
The time has come to bid farewell. It’s been a memorable month, to say the least, and this final update will be a recap and analysis of a campaign that has many still wondering why in Azathoth’s name it wasn’t funded. As we’re going to see, there’s no easy answer, but first things first:

THANK YOU. Those of you who are here have been extremely kind and supportive. You were as passionate about the project as we were, as can be attested by the sheer amount of shares, likes, and comments. This level of involvement isn’t seen even with campaigns with well over 6,000 backers, and as of this writing you number 1,800. The game has been extremely well received, with overwhelmingly positive comments on its look and feel, character design, and music. The average pledge per backer is an astounding (by today’s standards) $50. In this regard, the campaign has been a resounding success.

Unfortunately, we have to move on. We’re disbanding part of our team as we focus solely on completing Asylum, which is coming along great. Let me clarify that in spite of this disastrous and shameful conclusion, Senscape is in no way at risk, and we have money to deliver an amazing horror game that will stay in your memory for aeons to come. It would have been great to work on two projects at the same time, especially as they share the same roots, but there’s nothing left to do; this was our best shot. As I will explain next, this project required a monumental effort and the launch of the campaign was carefully orchestrated. We can’t easily reproduce that, not without taking more time away from Asylum, which isn’t an option. The same goes for talking to investors and publishers: these things demand time and effort. The whole idea was to produce an amazing game based on Lovecraft’s novel, with a generous budget and no constraints. I don’t want to develop this game under other conditions, and risk not doing justice to the source material. Thus, I’m afraid The Case of Charles Dexter Ward is being put on hold for the time being.

I too am sorry that this project isn't getting funded. I'm sure it would have been a great game.

Question: If a person makes a pledge, and not enough funds are available to proceed, do people get refunds? (sounds like a selfish question, but am curious). Thanks.

Laurette, pledges aren't actually cashed until such time as a project has met its funding goal.

No money is ever taken until the kickstarter funding is successful. It's an all or nothing transaction and if the KS falls short of it's goal no money is collected by them.

I wonder if it didn't just need more time.
The funding level is still going up -- went from ~ $83,000 to $99,000 in a fairly short time.
I don't think it will get there by 3PM EDT today (Oct 31) though.

edit -- for some reason the total dropped to $98,000 since I last posted.
Guess someone changed their mind -- or mistakenly thought they'd be charged if the Kickstarter failed.

I hope Agustin tries to fund this again -- maybe after Asylum comes out.
The fact that it hasn't might have discouraged some potential donors.

Thanks everyone. Thought that was probably the way it worked; just wanted to make sure.

I was also hoping this would get off the ground. I've always liked games based on Lovecraft's works. I've always wished that someone would do a remake of Shadow of the Comet and/or Prisoner of Ice.

I laugh because you're all the same

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

I wondered the same thing, Jenny - if they might have had better luck after Asylum was released. Hopefully, they will try again.

Thank you all for the amazing support, boomers! It was quite a ride and we're already looking forward to new adventures smile

About giving more time to the campaign, it doesn't work like that way. The funding progress is always shaped like a bell curve and you're going to see plenty of activity during the final days, but having more days in the campaign will only extend the "dead zone" in between. As a rule of thumb, you don't want to run any campaign for over 30 days.

Anyway, time to celebrate Halloween! laugh

I'm very sorry it was not successful Agustin, I hope that it will be able to come to light down the road a bit.
