Kickstarter for Fall Schematic Canceled

You may remember my post previously about a Kickstarter project called Fall Schematic. It as a digital and card based game that was getting support from Wyrd Games including a pledge level with some explusive minis of Malifaux characters.

Despite having passed their funding goal, they have canceled their Kickstarter.

From their update:

First, when we partnered with Wyrd Miniatures on the Fall Schematic project we gained the opportunity to create added incentives like miniatures and other physical products, as well as their knowledge and manufacturing to create and distribute the card game. This proved to be a blessing and a curse. All the support and interest brought in by the miniatures pushed us easily past our goal, which we are hugely thankful for. However, in many ways it shifted the focus of the campaign too far away from the game itself and became too much about the miniatures. While we are still very excited to be making Fall Schematic miniatures, it is not at the core of our project. As such, we felt strongly that we didn't want to primarily fund our project with a product only peripherally related. 

Second, due to the huge support we received from the very start, Fall Schematic has received a lot of attention. The result was additional private funds becoming available to secure the continuation, security, and success of the entire Fall Schematic project. You all made this happen, and so you have all directly contributed to making Fall Schematic happen, and happen better than ever! 

The good news is we're still going to honor your pledge level for all digital goods! That's right, backers will receive ALL the digital rewards you would have gotten in your pledge level, except you will get them for FREE. The only change is that they are no longer going to be Kickstarter exclusive, but will remain rare, useful, and valuable. Your support helped get us to where we are now, and we want to thank you in the best way we know how. 

The next good news is that we are still working with Wyrd to create the card game AND the miniatures. Wyrd has agreed to provide all current backers with a discount code to their online store, allowing you to buy these physical products, when they become available, with a very friendly discount. A big thank you to Wyrd for their continued support of the Fall Schematic project.
 So at least it seems that Wyrd is still going to produce the minis, so that's a bonus to us mini-lovers. So if you were backing it, or thinking about it, and wanted those exclusive Malifaux sculpts, keep an eye on Wyrd Games to get your hands on them.
