Nexus 2 coming to Kickstarter?
« on: May 10, 2012, 18:23:31 »
Nexus 2 may be coming to Kickstarter soon, according to an email exchange between galaxy366 and Zsolt Tatrai, Studio Director at Most Wanted Entertainment:

Quote from: Zsolt Tatrai
Yes, unfortunately Games Plant was a failure and it buried Nexus 2 as well.

BUT...:), we are currently preparing a new campaign on Kickstarter, which should start in a few weeks' time.

We all hope we can bring our favorite game back to life with the help of the fans like you this time.

If that goes through, Nexus 2 may get yet another chance to see the light of day. In the last few months several Kickstarter projects have had amazing success, such as a new Tim Schafer adventure, Wasteland 2 by Brian Fargo and a Leisure Suit Larry remake by Al Lowe himself. Although Nexus 2 probably won't get the same kind of publicity and overwhelming support by the masses, at least Kickstarter is much more well-known and successful as Gamesplant ever was. Hopefully that increases the odds enough to finally get a proper sequel to Nexus.

And hopefully the peeps who already showed a pledge towards a quarter of the development money will come back en masse. :D

Signs of a news update in the Steam forums:

update on Kickstarter campaign

To quote the important bit:

Hi Nick,

Thanks for your email.

Unfortunately, setting up a US company takes more time than we thought, which is why the campaign is getting delayed.

I hope we can sort out everything and launch the campaign by the end of next week though.

Best,

Zsolt

They'll hopefully be on kickstarter within the next 2 weeks. Fingers crossed

Hi Andreas,
 
Actually, I have some good news. We have finally managed to sort out everything on the legal side in the US, so there is nothing preventing us from kicking off the campaign.
 
I think it’s going to be live within 2 weeks!
 
Best,
Zsolt

Here's hoping that this campaign will be more successful that the last...
Better to look the fool by asking, then prove them right with ignorance.

Truly great news... hopefully not to be vanished in the dust like last time.
Otherwise... I would have started my path to become a game developer and to clone the Nexus game.
