Wisecrack Games cancels Sam Suede Kickstarter
Wisecrack Games has chosen to cancel funding for the Kickstarter project Sam Suede in Undercover Exposure, but claims the project will be re-launched at a later date.
“After much deliberation, we have decided to take a step back, regroup and brainstorm as to the best approach to re-launching this project,” reads a statement on the project’s Kickstarter page.
“Within an hour of the Kickstarter launch, erroneous and misleading information was posted and declared to the media about Wisecrack Games, attempting to derail any progress of this Kickstarter campaign. It was the leg work and research of the gaming community that revealed the foul play. Eventually, the truth prevailed, albeit too late.”
Shortly after the launch of the Kickstarter project numerous articles began to appear, stating that Wisecrack Games had misrepresented Al Lowe’s participation in the game, and that the Leisure Suit Larry creator wanted the campaign taken down.
“We will continue working with Steve and the Wizarbox team as we re-group and press forward despite this unfortunate setback,” the statement continues. “We are very confident in the direction we are headed to bring this game to fruition.”
Wisecrack Games had set a funding goal of $500,000 for the project. Upon cancellation just $14,290 had been pledged by 436 backers.
