John Romero and Night Work Games have decided to “pause” the fundraising campaign and cancel the Kickstarter campaign for their upcoming first-person shooter, BLACKROOM. The reason behind this cancellation is simple; a lot of PC gamers have been asking for a gameplay demo and Night Work Games decided to actually listen to its fans.
Therefore, the team is now working on a gameplay demo for BLACKROOM. Naturally, this will take a while, which is why Night Work Games decided to cancel this Kickstarter campaign, and launch a new one when BLACKROOM’s gameplay demo has been finished.
As Night Work Games claimed:
“There’s a hitch here, a hitch that’s making us do something that’s right for the game, the team, and the community: we’re pressing “PAUSE” on the fundraising campaign for BLACKROOM to complete this gameplay demo. Simply put, this will take more time than the Kickstarter has left, so we’ve decided to suspend the campaign and launch a new one when the gameplay demo is ready. We believe, however, it is the right choice. We know you do, too. Thanks to your feedback, we know we should have included it at launch.”
In all honesty, this is the right thing to do, so kudos to Romero and Night Work Games for actually listening to their fans!
