Wildman Status Report - GPG Retaining Some Staff?

A new update to the Kickstarter campaign for Wildman has another video from Gas Powered Games honcho Chris Taylor offering the latest on attempts to fund the action/RPG which will ostensibly save the company from the financial abyss that's already resulted in some layoffs. Chris speaks of being encouraged by the progress towards their funding goal and discusses their efforts at getting the word out with more updates later this week, including details on "Project Mercury" (not to be confused with the identical codename for Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning), which he says "is the platform we hope to deliver the modules on," suggesting a further explanation would be useful. On a related note, we got a note from a reader saying a friend at Gas Powered Games was asked to stay on for another month when he went to clean out his desk yesterday. This unconfirmed report also says there are other employees who are voluntarily working on this project to see how things shake out.

I decided to take a chance and back this because I like GPG and Chris Taylor and this game sounds cool. I know it's a big risk though and I totally get why anyone would steer clear. I would like a bit more detail from Taylor on how they think the $1.1M will get them to release or more importantly, if they plan to use this to seek additional funding to get things completed.

Parallax,

These are good questions, you should post it up to their Kick Starter page, and Chris reads everything posted there. Iím sure he will address it. If not I will send it to him personally. I can assure you, he has no intentions of deceiving anyone.

They need your support and there are no as someone put it blackmailing the customers involved here to try and get support by putting on some type of sorry to make people feel Sorrow for them. If they donít get the support, the company will go under.


Chris put over 15 years of his life and eveything he has into GPG, he dosent want to see his company go under.
