Shaker 'OldSchool RPG' Kickstarter project canceled
Shaker, the "Old-School RPG" Kickstarter project from game industry veterans Brenda Brathwaite and Tom Hall, has been canceled. Started on October 3, the project raised over $247,000 of its $1 million goal with 13 days to go. An update on the Kickstarter page reads, "In the industry, games are pitched every day," adding that "some make it to the next stage, but many don't."

"Ultimately, our pitch just wasn't strong enough to get the traction we felt it needed to thrive." It seems developer Loot Drop was leery of the project actually reaching its goal. The studio considered pushing forward, but after examining feedback and discussing the matter, "we decided that it made more sense to kill it and come back with something stronger."

Loot Drop is apparently going back to the drawing board, and tells fans to "expect something more soon."
