Kickstarter for ‘Blackroom’ FPS suspended
In a "backer-only" update posted to the Kickstarter page for the 'Blackroom' first-person shooter (FPS) game, John Romero and Adrian Carmack - the developers of the game - have revealed that the recently-launched crowdfunding campaign for the game has been suspended.
According to the update posted by Romero and Carmack on the Blackroom Kickstarter page, the fundraising campaign clock has been set back to zero. The move to suspend the Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for Blackroom marks the response of the game's development team to Ars' initial assessment of the fundraising effort.
Romero and Carmack said in the update post that the Kickstarter campaign for Blackroom will be continued 'in earnest' once a demo of the game has been created by the development team.
The Kickstarter campaign for Blackroom FPS was launched by Romero and Carmack on Monday, April 25. The fundraising goal of the campaign is $700,000; out of which the game has already managed a crowdfunding amount of $131,052 from backers.
About the suspension of the BlackRoom Kickstarter campaign, Romero said in the update posted on the game's Kickstarter page said that the development team is "pressing 'PAUSE' on the fundraising campaign for Blackroom to complete this gameplay demo." The update further read: "Simply put, this will take more time than the Kickstarter has left, so we've decided to suspend the campaign and launch a new one when the gameplay demo is ready."
