To be relaunched at a later time, (because it was trending on kicktraq to only meeting 20% of its goal).

Edit: I lied, it was only trending to get 15% of its funding goal. lol
I think the opposite, it wasn't going succeed but by ending it it's not an official failure. Now they can add in the "new opportunities" and relaunch as an updated project that needed tweaking.
Honestly I think this is a pretty dumb move.
Ending it early is only going to make people less likely to help in the future. If they aren't willing to stick it out to the end, then why should the people who they want to pay for it do so?
1. It should have been on Kickstarter from the beginning
2. It should have been all platforms
3. The goal shouldn't be so high
I doubt relaunching it now will do them any good. But I guess their reasoning is, it barely can do worse.
Hopefully the new features will be worth it.
Can't wait to hear about those exciting opportunities :lol
Since we announced this Kickstarter campaign we have seen more support from our community than we had ever hoped for. Along with this support has come a host of a new exciting opportunities that will make the game better than we envisioned.
Problem is, when you've destroyed your reputation and your previous business, and you create a new business that does the exact same thing with the exact same people at its head and ask for people for money with no strings attached to run that business, you'll get a funny look from me. I don't care how much affection I have for an older game. You're not to be trusted. If you honestly believe you can make something that people will want to buy, you can easily get capital through traditional channels. Unless, you know, the weight of your previous actions prevents that because you've run afoul of both the law and your professional peers.
