Unfortunate news to start the day today.
According to a new blog post made by KnightMayor studios, the studio and their game Mooncrest are going on indefinite hiatus. The developers stated, “Since the closing of our Kickstarter over 2 months ago development on Mooncrest has not progressed in a manner that we are happy with. When we brought the project to Kickstarter we didn’t have any plans in place or talk about what steps we would take if the campaign had failed. As we discussed elsewhere, there were problems with the way we chose to present the game and everything didn’t come together the way we envisioned.”
The developers continued on to explain the future of KnightMayor and Mooncrest saying, “We each need to focus on our personal lives right now which does mean there will be no active development on the project. We might come back to Mooncrest in 6 months, a couple years from now, or this may be the end. We honestly don’t know what the future holds. I can tell you that each of us is extremely passionate about Mooncrest and bringing this game to market, but whether or not we can rise from ashes like a phoenix and take another run at this only higher powers know for sure.”
This is rather unfortunate, but not entirely unexpected. We’ve talked quite a bit about Kickstarter campaigns lately and why some of them have failed, including KnightMayors. First impressions matter the most, and unless you come to the table with something to really show your potential backers in terms of an actual game, you won’t get very far.
Hopefully KnightMayor and Mooncrest will return at some point, but for now, don’t expect the game anytime soon. Stay tuned to OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter for further updates. If you’d like to read the rest of the blog post just follow the link.
