‘Death, Inc.’ and ‘Project Awakened’ Devs Chart Future Course After Kickstarter Failures

March 12th - via: multiplayerblog.mtv.com
What happens when a Kickstarter campaign for a new game fails? After Chris Taylor unceremoniously cancelled Gas-Powered Games’ “Wildman” fundraising effort, for example, his crippled, employee-less company was bought by Wargaming. Last week, two more promising Kickstarters failed to meet their goals: Ambient Studios’ “Death, Inc.” fell well short of its £300,000 goal, and Phosphor Games’ “Project Awakened” came a bit closer to raising the $500,000 it needed but still just missed out. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup – 10th February 2013

February 10th - via: rockpapershotgun.com
In terms of anticipation and dollars pledged, this has been the week of Dreamfall Chapters but you already knew about that one, right? The Katchup concerns itself with all Kreatures, great and small, and there are plenty of newcomers this week, including Tom Hall’s keen platforming tools, Projects Awakened and Cornerstone, the mad and possibly brilliant Ritual Dementia and gorgeous light-speed drifter, Race The Sun. Some projects are teetering on the brink of failure but, as we have seen with the adventure game in the past, any news reports of Kickstarter’s death are entirely premature. (Read More)

Wildman at Bay: Inside Chris Taylor's fight to save Gas Powered Games

January 29th - via: pcgamesn.com
Chris Taylor knows he and his company have survived worse moments than this one. But it sure doesn’t feel that way. He can tell you stories about being millions of dollars in the hole, and dipping deeply into his own personal line of credit to keep Gas Powered Games alive and to make payroll. There have been times when they had debt and no projects and no publishers. There have been times when he’s been at serious risk of not just losing his company, but the home he shares with his family. (Read More)

Wildman Kickstarter Could Be Running Out Of Gas

January 28th - via: escapistmagazine.com
Gas Powered Games' Chris Taylor thinks the Kickstarter is a long shot. When Wildman's Kickstarter numbers first started to wobble, Gas Powered Games' Chris Taylor took the extraordinary step of letting pretty much his entire staff go, to protect them as much as possible. The Kickstarter continues, but at this point Taylor isn't as hopeful as he was that there will be a happy resolution to the problem. (Read More)

In Emotional Video, Chris Taylor Says He's 'Fearful' About Wildman Kickstarter's Outcome

Just last week we learned that Chris Taylor, the developer behind Dungeon Siege and Supreme Commander, was forced to lay off a significant number of people from his company Gas Powered Games after the Kickstarter campaign for their game Wildman was met with underwhelming funding rates. Yesterday, in an hour long interview posted on YouTube channel Matt Chat, Taylor very openly addressed the details of the company's financial woes, and his discomfort with Kickstarter. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup

January 27th - via: rockpapershotgun.com
This week, spaceships are constructed, nobody loses and the Katchup features an open source 3D engine Linux port, which certainly sounds like the sort of thing that should be happening but also makes me realise how little I know about the availability of engine licenses and the complexities of game development. Maybe I’ll ask Jim to teach me, although I reckon most of his input on Sir, You Are Being Hunted involves polite requests for ‘more robots and tea’. (Read More)

Gas Powered Game’s ‘interesting position’: Taylor discusses studio’s financial plight

January 22nd - via: vg247.com
Gas Powered Games suffered a bout of lay-offs last week following the poor initial reaction to its Wildman Kickstarter campaign. Studio boss and founder Chris Taylor has taken to a Reddit ‘Ask Me Anything’ to discuss how the company has entered into such troubling financial times. Taylor was posed this very question, to which he responded, “GPG is in a very interesting situation, as we had enough money to get us through to the end of the campaign. What became obvious by day 4, is that the campaign was going so poorly, there was no way it was going to happen. (Read More)

Chris Taylor Says Wildman Kickstarter Will Continue

January 22nd - via: escapistmagazine.com
Chris Taylor says that laying off the majority of Gas Powered Games employees may have saved the game and the studio. In what is possibly the strangest Kickstarter launch ever, Gas Powered Games boss Chris Taylor announced the action-RPG Wildman and then, a week later, laid off almost the entire development team. But he didn't pull the plug on the Kickstarter; instead, he asked supporters and fans whether he should continue the campaign and rehire the team if it succeeds, or shut it down right away. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup

January 20th - via: rockpapershotgun.com
It’s taken me longer than I’d hoped, but I’ve finally managed to exorcise the last spirits of 2012 from the Kickstarter Katchup and the 2013 instalments can now begin. The extended break has left us with a lot to katch up on so there will be a lot of winners and losers this week, covering many of the games in the last Katchup. I’m not going to list every game that failed to reach its target but all the winners will be there, as well as any that are of particular interest or have detailed plans for the future. (Read More)

Gas Powered Games suffering layoffs shortly after launching the Wildman Kickstarter

January 19th - via: eurogamer.net
Update: Gas Powered Games founder Chris Taylor has issued a video update explaining the situation. Evidently he felt uneasy about gambling his employees' livelihood on Wildman, because if it failed he'd have to shut down the company and no one would receive their severance or unpaid PTO. Thus, he decided the merciful thing to do would be to lay off "a substantial number of the team" and rehire them back if they're still available if and when the Wildman Kickstarter hits its goal. Given the bleak situation Taylor is wondering if it's even worth continuing the Kickstarter campaign as people may have given up on the company, so he's asking people to vote with their comments. (Read More)

GPG asks whether Wildman Kickstarter should continue amid layoffs

January 19th - via: vg247.com
According to reports handed to Kotaku (thanks, Splatterhouse), all employees at the Redmond, Washington studio have been let-go except for CEO Chris Taylor and “one or two people.” Taylor told Gamasutra that while the “studio is still operating, but we had to slim WAY down to conserve cash reserves.” Taylor told the site earlier in the week it was “betting the company” on its Wildman Kickstarter as it had little cash left in its coffers to continue operations. (Read More)

Gas Powered Facing Major Layoffs, May Halt Kickstarter

January 19th - via: rockpapershotgun.com
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 footage, and everything seemed to be proceeding apace – minus, perhaps, the Kickstarter itself, which was acting less prehistoric hare beast and more tribal tortoise mutant. But apparently, that wasn’t good enough. So now, mere days after kicking off its Kickstarter, Gas Powered Games is kicking most of its employees to the curb. And according to Chris Taylor, Wildman’s Kickstarter might end up on the chopping block as well. (Read More)

Lacking confidence in Wildman Kickstarter, Gas Powered Games hit with substantial layoffs

January 19th - via: neoseeker.com
Gas Powered Games appears to be in a much more dire place than previously thought. The company was forced yesterday to lay off a "substantial number of the team" in the face of unconvincing Kickstarter support for their new project, Wildman. If the Kickstarter project gets funded, perhaps the team can be hired back, but in the interim the company needs community support to decide whether to even continue the project. (Read More)

Two hours before the Kickstarter page had even gone up, rumours of Total Annihilation and Dungeon Siege designer Chris Taylor’s new game, Wildman, had surfaced on news sites. The game, a brave hybrid of RPG, RTS, hack-and-slash and MOBA is aiming for a modest budget of $1.1 million, meaning it’ll need around $35,000 a day to make its target. (Read More)

Chris Taylor on Wildman and life as an escaped zoo animal

January 14th - via: pcgamesn.com
Chris Taylor isn’t sleeping well. It’s Friday, January 11th, and there are only 72 hours until Gas Powered’s first Kickstarter goes live. He and his team at Gas Powered Games are constantly second-guessing themselves and worrying about the strength of their pitch for Wildman. Are they showing too little? They have prototype assets they can use, but they worry that the low-quality will make people think Wildman is likewise low-quality. But if they only show the stuff that looks good right now, chiefly concept art, Taylor and GPG worry that people will think the project looks too narrow, or too incomplete. How do you create a pitch that leaves people satisfied, yet hungry for more? (Read More)

Born to be Wildman: meet Chris Taylor and Gas Powered Games' new Moba / RTS brought to you by Kickstarter

January 14th - via: pcgamesn.com
A number of times during our interview on Friday, Chris Taylor asked me if what he was saying made sense, if I “got” Wildman, his newly announced, Kickstarter-funded RTS / MOBA. Taylor talks a mile a minute and there’s always the sense that his words are trying to catch up to his brain, but more than that, Wildman is something different and harder to explain than he’s used to pitching. (Read More)
