The Kickstarter campaign for Sensible Soccer spiritual successor Sociable Soccer has been cancelled.
Jon Hare, one of the original developers of Sensible Soccer, started a Kickstarter campaign two weeks ago for Sociable Soccer, a modern successor of the cult classic, to be released in 2016 on PC and consoles.
The Kickstarter campaign asked for £300,000 to develop the game, but because of how little traction it got, Hare cancelled it earlier. The campaign earned £32,498 in funding from 1767 backers before being shut down.
It’s not all bad news though, as Hare told Eurogamer the buzz surrounding the campaign attracted a number of interested publishers
“Much more than that I cannot say at the moment, except that development is continuing at full tilt and when we get nearer to confirming how we will be bringing the game to market we will be sure to let you know,” he said, adding that the game currently has a playable prototype.
