Jim Walls’ Precinct Pulled From Kickstarter, Moves to Stage Funding
Last month, we reported that Police Quest creator Jim Walls’ was leaving retirement to help create Precinct, a spiritual successor to Police Quest.
Unfortunately, the Kickstarter failed having raised only $85,756 of the $500,000 goal before being pulled from Kickstarter. This did not deter the hopes of Jim Walls Reloaded, Inc. of bringing the game to fans as they quickly moved the project to a stage funding campaign.
Robert Lindsley, president of Jim Walls Reloaded, explained the move from Kickstarter to stage funding.
Like other recent high-profile Kickstarters, we quickly saw that Precinct wasn’t gaining the traction it needed. While fans are interested in backing new ideas, they’re becoming increasingly aware of the risks inherent in crowdfunding. We’re hoping that this new model will give backers more confidence in the projects they’re funding.
The new campaign goal is $400,000 and has four funding stages; when each stage is hit backers will receive proof of the games development, such as a demo, proof of concept, etc. Interested in helping fund the project? You can here.
