Mob Rules Games wants you to vote on its next game, for free this time


Mob Rules Games had high hopes for its innovative, user-oriented Kickstarter campaign, where investors would get to choose one of three concepts for the developers to turn into a real game -- Haunts, The Last Second or Guerrilla Gorilla. They believed in this approach so strongly that they allotted just 30 days to raise $20,000. It's more than a month later, and now Mob Rules has just one thing to say about their entire Kickstarter venture:

"Well, that didn't work."

Mob Rules Games didn't reach their goal, but they have a backup plan. The Lewis Charitable Foundation has offered to invest in Mob Rules' first game as part of its Open Game Labs program, but Rick Dakan, Jonathan Wills and Austin McKinley still want users to choose which game they should make. Enter: Free voting.

Anyone can enter to vote for free on one of Mob Rules' three potential games, from now until Nov. 30 at 5 p.m. EST. Whichever game has the most audience support, Mob Rules will make. Entertainment is a wholly subjective experience, so we don't want to tell you which game we think sounds like the most fun, but we'll give you a hint: It isn't the First and it rhymes with "meckond." Happy voting.
