The chances of Zelda-inspired 2D adventure title Midora ever making it to market now look incredibly slim.
Having won over $73,000 worth of Kickstarter funding back in the summer of 2014, Midora was due to arrive in January of this year. That, clearly, did not happen. And now creator Mhyre has admitted that he knew he would not be able to complete the game on the amount he raised.
Although that didn’t stop him taking the money, of course.
“Our search for publishers and investors is, unfortunately, still not over,” the latest update said. “We've had opportunities with big names in the industry and, while they were all truly interested, their own schedule and projects was often the number one reason a partnership/agreement could not be made.
“I am never giving up on this game, and this has never been my intention. I will do whatever it takes to get the game I want to make into your hands. The game is complete on paper and the team has nothing but talent. Money is all that we need. Nothing can happen without money. Money is our final boss."
