Today with a heavy heart TikGames announced that they had to cancel the upcoming Chucky: Wanna Play? video game. They started an official Kickstarter to make a PC version of the game and then hopefully roll out on consoles. Unfortunately they only had 19 backers and $585. The goal was $925,000. So they were no where near where they had to be. Here is the official statement from the developers.
It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of this Kickstarter Campaign. For those who have followed Chucky this last week, you know that pledges have been very slow. We built a fun campaign with lots of great goodies, got the word out to as many people as we could, but sadly not enough people loved the concept of a Chucky video game as much as we did.
Our sincerest thanks go out to all of you who pledged to Chucky and we promise no charges will be made to your credit card for this Kickstarter project.
I’m not really sure they were reaching out to the right crowd.. I would have definitely funded this project but I did not see this mentioned on any horror site. Hopefully some day they can make this game happen. Below is the pitch video they made to get people to fund the game.
