Last month, a Kickstarter for an official Apocalypse Now video game launched. After megafans rushed to back the project, very few others followed. With a little over a week to go it appears the project has no chance of being funded.
Despite all this, today marks the start of opening their own crowdfunding website with the goal of collecting $5,000,000 from backers. This was the plan from the start – but the team probably hoped their Kickstarter would be successful first.
Anyone who backed on Kickstarter can pledge on this other website to see their pledge increased. Although it appears this is now meant to replace the failing Kickstarter, the Kickstarter project is still running.
