Haunts The Kickstarter Cautionary Tale

We have gotten a crazy amount of media coverage for our project. The tone of much of it seems to center around Haunts being the first notable Kickstarter video game project to fail. A dubious honor to be sure, and not entirely accurate.

We have not given up. This is not over. We are going to finish this game.

I’m more confident than I have been in many weeks, thanks entirely to the outpouring of support and offers of help that I’ve gotten from our supporters. I’ve done a number of interviews already, with some more to come. We’re renewed in our commitment to get this game out.

In case you’re curious - I know I was! - here’s a list of some of the stories about us. I’m sure I’ve missed a bunch, these are just the English language ones I’ve seen:

Its a good thing that the creators of this game has not given up on the project. This looks like a decent game that we can try, since most of the RPG out there are about wizards and warlords, it not bad to try other games about macabres and dead people. I hope that they can finish this game, cant wait to try it.

VJs TV has a lot of main pages where video jockeys can show their works and videos. These pages include Generative Art, Interactive Art, Video Projection Mapping, Motion Graphics, Video Art, Video Mixes and Tech Overviews. All of these pages are very helpful to VJs and video artists. Due to these main pages, everyone is granted to promote their jobs about being a jockey on videos.

They have actually given up from the looks of things, so "not entirely accurate" is in fact itself "not entirely accurate"

Customs are the pattern of activity which gets constructed over the time which generally turns into nature and feature that characterizes our new self. Habits are not born, but are evolved or evolved by the repetitive behavior, which we become so utilized to habit that it is very tough to change and reside without that habit. casino roulette
