We truly are in the age of the Kickstarter. Double Fine started the craze with what turned out to be Broken Age and since then it seems like every developer under the sun has attempted to gain funding on Kickstarter. Now KING Art wants funding for The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, even though Nordic Games have already funded the full development of the game.
The money from the Kickstarter campaign, if funded, will be used for “additional on-top content” but even if the campaign is not fully funded the game will still launch in 2015.
The Book of Unwritten Tales is a critically acclaimed point and click adventure that launched back in 2011, the sequel will continue the story from the first game, and will see the hero’s from the first game go on further adventures.
Martin Kreuch, Producer at Nordic Games is certainly very excited about the collaboration and even seems to be onboard with the Kickstarter idea.
“This is a very ambitious project”
“The fans have been waiting for a new adventure in the world of Aventasia that continues the story of BoUT 1. We have a long and very fruitful track-record working with KING Art, which is why it is important to us to support them in any way that is needed. If KING Art wants to try out something new, why should we be hindering them in doing so? At first, it seemed strange to us thinking about an already funded game being on Kickstarter, but then we were amazed about the possibility to get direct feedback from the crowd about this additional on-top content and features.”
