After four weeks and just $3,000, Raylight Games is cancelling its Illo Kickstarter. Here’s why

chiusura-KS

Italian indie studio Raylight Games was seeking $270,000 on crowdfunding website Kickstarter to finance development of Illo – Birth Of The Cool, a handsome puzzle adventure game for iOS and Android. It’s not the first, of course, and it surely won’t be the last, but this is a project with a difference: the team is documenting their Kickstarter experience in an exclusive diary here on Edge. In this, the third and final installment, the Italian studio explains why it has made the difficult decision to pull its project off of Kickstarter and seek more traditional funding opportunities.

Illo - Birth Of The Cool: a Kickstarter dev diary

Well, we’re finally here on Day One of our Kickstarter US funding round, and I must admit we’re nervous and excited in equal measure. The journey of Illo – Birth Of The Cool has been a long one (the idea started in 2006) but in just 35 days’ time we could actually start to develop the game; not because a publisher said “yes”, but because thousands of Kickstarter backers from all over the world have decided they want to contribute to the project, and that’s hugely exciting.

Dillon’s Rolling Western review

Dillon's Rolling Western review

If Nintendo is to differentiate its eShop from the App Store it needs more software as substantial as Dillon’s Rolling Western, which offers thirty levels of its unique, idiosyncratic spin on the tower defence genre. Yet while Vanpool’s game comfortably clears the 10-hour barrier – perhaps double that for those wishing to pursue its elusive five-star goals – it comes at a cost, and that’s not just the £9 pricetag.

Retrospective: Manhunt

Manhunt

Manhunt arrived in a manner as sudden and brutal as any of the game’s own encounters. Minimal early noise and scant preview coverage saw it slip from the shadows and lead an impact on players that felt largely unspoiled, in a manner that feels rare among the modern gaming scene’s increasingly industrious PR machine and… Continue reading

Hack ‘N’ Slash is the Double Fine adventure that deconstructs and rewires the genre

Hacknslash

The title may be Hack ’N’ Slash, but it’s clear from the opening moments of Double Fine’s inventive action-adventure that you won’t be doing much of the latter. Alice, a young elf, immediately breaks her sword on the bars of her cell, revealing a USB connector beneath the blade. Plug it into the door’s slot… Continue reading

Murdered: Soul Suspect review

Murdered

We’re an alley cat, and we’re stuck in an alley. More specifically, we’re the ghost of a police detective possessing the body of a cat, but that doesn’t make the head-height fences barring our progress any less baffling. Our feline ride is only in this area to let us climb two scaffolding towers for collectibles,… Continue reading

Xbox One and the endless, hopeless dream of convergence

Xbone

The history of videogames is also the history of televisions. Not the shows, the stars, or the ready meals, but the equipment – the box in your living room.  This connection is the most intimate yet unexamined one in our medium. The ‘video’ in ‘videogames’ isn’t just an affectation or a distinction: it refers to… Continue reading
