Spiritual successor Stalker start their own crowdfunding after suspension on Kickstarter




West Games, the development studio which claim to work on the spiritual successor to shooting Stalker, has launched a new crowdfunding campaign on his own website. Rather the project, called Areal, was suspended by Kickstarter.

According to West Games has the suspension through Kickstarter to do with controversy surrounding the game caused by the tense relationship between Ukraine and Russia. The studio speaks of an “information war”, and writes many offensive reactions that the game got on Kickstarter on to state. For suspending the project had more than 16,000 responses, including many hostile remarks. According to the developers, the responses contain even death threats. West Games said in response, however, not be sure why the project has been suspended since the rules of Kickstarter that prohibit, as reports Eurogamer. The studio has new packages for crowdfunding on his own website posted .

The suspension on Kickstarter followed shortly by startling reports that Russian President Putin would have subscribed.

Shown interest In the letter, Putin would cite that it is important that ‘our people’ do not shoot at each other, but to play this kind of games. Makers would also be welcome at the Kremlin to discuss the interests of the young generation gamende in Russia. With Putin

Although the letter lacks credibility looks, it is striking that the publication of the letter coincided with two significant pledges on Kickstarter that Areal from $ 37,000 to $ 64,000 lifted, allowing the project goal of $ 50,000 Outpacing. West Games points for investment to the interference of Putin, but whether that is true is not to verify. Moreover, the pledges on Kickstarter may still be withdrawn before the expiry of the deadline of a project. Partly because it is not excluded that it was a publicity stunt for a project that $ 13,000 deficit was three days before the deadline, so it seemed to go beaches out.
