Police Quest 'successor' Kickstarter canceled, moves to its own tiered funding platform

August 6th - via: joystiq.com
The Kickstarter campaign for Precinct - pitched as a spiritual successor to the Police Quest series - has handed in its badge and gun. Robert Lindsley, president of Jim Walls Reloaded, told Joystiq that the campaign has been canceled in order to give the developer an opportunity to create a playable pilot version of the game. The motive, Lindsley said, is to allow potential backers to "experience" the vision behind the spiritual successor, rather than use a tech demo video to decide whether the game was worthy of backing. (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup – 21st July 2013

July 21st - via: rockpapershotgun.com
There have been plenty of weeks with no losers and several winners, but I can’t remember compiling this column and finding losers without winners to sit above them. There are lots of projects that are readying themselves for a spot in the winners’ section though, propped on the podium, parading their plaudits. Dungeonmans and Tangiers are my current favourites, with Monochroma not far behind. It’s a busy week though and there should be something for everyone. Except sports fans. Nothing for sports fans. Probably the least Kickstarted genre actually. Licensing issues to blame? (Read More)

Police Quest makes a comeback in the form of Precinct

July 17th - via: destructoid.com
When I was scouring adventure game titan Sierra On-line's back catalog in the '90s, one title stood out from its generally light-hearted peers and demanded that I play it immediately: a game where instead of playing a space janitor or a desperate sex pest, I could be a cop, fighting gangs, solving murders, and handing out parking tickets. That game was ex-police officer Jim Walls' Police Quest, originally designed in '87, and it would eventually spawn a long running series that lasted for 11 years. (Read More)
