A couple of weeks ago, a game based on Apocalypse Now was brought to KickStarter to raise $900,000. As of today, however, the campaign has been canceled with only $173k in the hopper, a clear sign that it wasn't going to make it in the 30-days. However, the project will continue raising funds, now in the realm of half a million, via the game's official site.
According to Montgomery Markland, the Apocalypse Now game director, the site efforts can and should be much more successful. The effort to raise money will remain in place indefinitely with the game expected to take up to four years to complete.
