The Adventures of Dash misses Kickstarter goal

Jordan Mallory

After 30-days of fundraising on Kickstarter, Robotoki's platforming project The Adventures of Dash fell short of its $400,000 goal, earning a total of $33,121 from 496 backers over the course of the campaign.

"We know were not alone now in wanting to see this game come to life," the campaign's final update reads, "and while we're not entirely sure how we're going to make that happen right now, we are going to do everything we can to keep the game alive." The update goes on to say that The Adventures of Dash will have to be placed "on the back burner for now" so Robotoki can focus on its main project, Human Element.

The Adventures of Dash, a 2D side-scrolling platformer about a boy with narcolepsy, was originally planned for a November launch on consoles, iOS, Android PC, Mac, Linux and Ouya. The game would have changed both stylistically and mechanically based on whether Dash was awake or involuntarily asleep, as seen in the gallery below.
