If you were one of the backers for the Kickstarter campaign for Fable Fortune, then you may (or may not) be pleased to know that your money is no longer required. Developer Flaming Fowl has revealed that they have secured additional funding for the game, resulting in the Kickstarter campaign being cancelled.
The developer made the announcement in an announcement on the game’s Kickstarter page, where they announced what their plans are going forward. The following is a snippet from the update:
“It’s in this spirit that today we can share some amazing news with you. Thanks to your enthusiasm and support, we are happy to announce that we’ve successfully secured additional development funding! This, alongside our ongoing personal investment, will mean that we can continue to improve the game and allow even more of you to start playing.”
“With the immediate future of Fable Fortune now secure, we have taken the decision to end our Kickstarter campaign early to focus on releasing a Closed Beta build as quickly as possible. As we’ve always stated, we want to make this game with your help, your feedback and your input. We have huge plans for Fortune and we know that whatever happens in the future, it all started with our already incredible community.”
