Amazing-Looking RTS Project Human Resources Canceled by Developers
Developer Uber cited a lack of confidence that their original RTS project would raise the necessary $1.4M.
If you were won over by the unique art style of Human Resources, a game just announced earlier this month, you may be in for some disappointment. The Kickstarter has been canceled by the developers citing that they anticipate coming up "woefully short" of the $1.4 million they were hoping to raise.
In a note to backers, lead designer John Comes wrote, "The time has come to shut down the Kickstarter for Human Resources. Every Kickstarter prediction model is showing that we will come up woefully short of our goal. Running a Kickstarter is a full-time job for several people. As a small indie, we can't continue spending time and money focusing on a project that won't get funded. We simply don't have the human resources. #seewhatididthere."
The project was originally slated to complete funding by November 4.
But that doesn't mean all hope is lost for the project. Comes notes that they plan to "regroup and figure out what to do next." However, he also writes, "One thing is for sure, Human Resources, as pitched in this Kickstarter, is over. But we adore the world of Human Resources and will endeavor to do what we can to bring it to life in some form."
You have a few options if you want to keep up with what developer Uber has in store next. According to Comes, you can follow updates on the developer's (Uber) website, John's Twitter, Nate's Twitter, and Uber's Twitter.
