Project Awakened Kickstarter ends well short of goal

Thursday, 7 March 2013 01:52 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Project Awakened has not, in fact, stirred from its slumber. The independent games crowdfunding campaign closed today with $338,498 in pledges from 6,287 backers. Despite the generosity of its supporters, with an average pledge of over $50, that’s just 67% of its $500,000 goal, meaning developer Phosphor Games will receive nothing at all. It’s a sad result for a promising concept with so much history, but Phosphor has said it will just keep plugging away whenever it has time.
