Brad McQuaid first began teasing his new MMO in December of last year but despite a hugely positive response on Twitter, the game is struggling to meet its lofty $800,000 goal. The Kickstarter began on January 14th and although initial reports seemed positive the hype has died down and things are looking grim for the Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen Kickstarter.
At the time of this post there's just 9 days left for Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen on Kickstarter and currently it's yet to reach the halfway mark. Securing only $385,000 from 2,829 supporters. It's pretty clear to anyone that frequents Kickstarter that the game has very little chance of meeting its goal without a very large investor stepping into place but McQuaid recently stated on the official Facebook that the developers do not plan on giving up if the Kickstarter fails.
Hi all. Quick update:
1. We are NOT giving up on kickstarter by any means.
2. We are setting up a comprehensive web site that will include all of the KS info and the ability to pledge or re-pledge. This will launch when the KS campaign ends, whether KS is successful or not.
3. We have already started preparing to reach out to Investors. We are finalizing some spreadsheets and polishing up the Business Plan. This phase has been planned and will also happen whether or not we meet the KS goal.
He also reached out to his Twitter followers asking if anyone knew investors that may be interested:
If anyone knows an angel investor or other type of investor who might be interested in investing in VR, please let me know.— Brad McQuaid (@Aradune) February 13, 2014
