'Kickstarter is starting to wear itself out. Itís a numbers game.'
'Kickstarter is starting to wear itself out. Itís a numbers game.'
February 14, 2013 | By Frank Cifaldi




"Kickstarter is starting to wear itself out. Itís a numbers game."
- Gas Powered Games founder Chris Taylor reflects on his failed Wildman Kickstarter campaign at a conference in Europe (as reported by Venture Beat).

Speaking just after he cancelled the campaign four days shy of its end date -- and just before today's announcement that Wargaming has acquired the studio -- Taylor lamented that Kickstarter backers have lost their enthusiasm as they wait for bigger projects to get released.

ďPeople had spent a lot of money on other Kickstarters and were waiting for those games to arrive,Ē he said. ďWe also started just after Christmas, when people had already spent money.Ē

Wargaming acquired Gas Powered Games for an undisclosed sum. The studio joins recent acquisitions from the World of Tanks maker that include FEAR 3 developer Day 1 Studios and MMO middleware provider Big World.
