Just posted on KS page,


Good moon Adelphians,

When we started this campaign, I was so excited that I could not imagine that we could eventually fail. Shame on me! This same over-confidence, this same craziness and this same adventurousness, which 15 years ago led us to create the original game, lead us to face the harsh reality of this Kickstarter failure which could have been avoided with a bit more time, thinking and upfront money.

Maybe more footage and some extra pitch would have fared better.

Anyway, better luck next time.
( Deep inside i want Outcast 2 more than this )

Puzzling how it failed. Either kickstarter has lost a lot of traction and confidence by the backers or Outcast doesn’t have a large cult following (like I thought it did) because it wasn’t a very large goal.

One plausible (partial*) explanation I also saw was that since Outcast doesn’t have any kind of proper community, the word didn’t get around enough even to the fans. If you’re not very actively following gaming news sites (and/or Kickstarter) it’s easy to miss something like this. Of course, they probably also - as they said - failed to attract those who didn’t know the game before.


*)of course partial, since there never is one single explanation for these things
