Robotoki’s The Adventures of Dash Kickstarter ends well short of goal

Friday, 5th April 2013 15:05 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

The funding round for The Adventures of Dash, the Kickstarter project from Robert Bowling’s Robotoki studio, had ended well short of its $400,000 goal with only $33,121 pledged by 496 backers.

The 2D platformer centered around a young boy who can fall asleep at will, and when dreaming, different game worlds with very different art and play styles would come into play.

“We didn’t make it to our goal…but we gained nearly 500 friends along the way and that alone, makes it all worth it,” reads the final update on the Kickstarter page. “The Adventures of Dash has always been passion project for us and because of your support through the last 30 days, we’re even more passionate about it than we were when we started.

“We know were not alone now in wanting to see this game come to life, and while we’re not entirely sure how we’re going to make that happen right now, we are going to do everything we can to keep the game alive. We’ll need to put it on the back burner for now, while we focus on our main project Human Element, but we will be regrouping and exploring every option available to bring The Adventures of Dash to reality. ”

A thank you gift of the game’s soundtrack to all the project’s “fans and backers,” has been released. You can download it for free through the link.

    I want to bash on him for his IW days but now I feel sorry for him and can’t.

    MY first time hearing a kickstart that failed. Do the donors that helped out get a refund is a good question

    It didn’t meet its funding goal so no money’s even changed hands yet. All pledges are automatically cancelled.

    Congratulations, you achieved what millions of Facebook uses have. I’m sure you’d rather have the… wait what? FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND for your 2D platformer? Jog on.
