That's quite a biggie. And I quote:
I have to say, a couple of folks at the club had commented they thought it was going to wind up not meeting its goal, and I was... unsure. I've seen things pull 60% of their funding in the last few days, but those have generally been much lower targets. I wonder... is £300,000 a bit of an bold target for a Kickstarter - it doesn't, somehow, feel like what KS was intended for. It also... I dunno, it kind of felt generally 'meh'. Sure it raised £100K, but I never really picked up any excitement about it.After much consideration we have decided to withdraw our project from Kickstarter.We’d like to thank you all for believing in us and backing us, GoA will still become a reality but through different means.We will take the next month to reassess our plans, during this time you will still see us on the forums and we will continue to post updates to our website.
Having said that? I was tempted, though I really don't need another ruleset: I hadn't actually started delving into the setting yet. Part of that's because I'm toying with writing a setting for the Lardies' Quadrant 13 rules!
It will be interesting to see both what happens to BtGoA now AND, more interestingly, what backlash there is.
