The developers behind Project Rap Rabbit have reflected on the game's future, following the sadly-expected demise of its Kickstarter campaign.
Project Rap Rabbit's crowdfunding campaign officially concluded at midnight UK time last night, although it had been clear for a while the game would not hit its goal.
In a new blog update posted shortly afterward, the game's development team offered a glimmer of hope that all may not be lost:
After a month-long campaign for £855k, the project managed just £162k in total.
The game, designed to be a spiritual successor to cult rhythm classic Parappa the Rappa, suffered from a number of stumbles. First, its hugely ambitious initial stretch goals, placed on top of an already ambitious target. These were then recalibrated to make a much-requested Nintendo Switch version more attainable.
Then, the lack of actual gameplay - something remedied just 10 days ago, when prototype footage was released.
