Ex-Ubisoft devs' crowdfunded RPG ReRoll has been cancelled

Developer offers 10.99 Steam Early Access game as only compensation.

Over two years ago Ex-Assassin's Creed and Far Cry developers Julien Cuny and Louis-Pierre Pharand announced ReRoll, a crowdfunded "survival action RPG" that would use drones to map out the entire planet. That game has now been cancelled.
