Comcept Gets A Publisher To Fund Red Ash, Kickstarter Now For Unnamed Stretch Goals

about X hours ago from

With four days to go, Comcept’s second Kickstarter didn’t look promising. The Red Ash campaign has only raised $489,000 of the $800,000 stretch goal, but that doesn’t matter anymore.

Chinese publisher Fuze has decided to pick up the game and fund its development. What this means for the Kickstarter and its backers isn’t clear, though.

Comcept says that funds will now support stretch goals, but hasn’t named what those are. “Exactly what are those stretch goals? We're sorry to say that will have to wait a little while longer!” Comcept writes on the Kickstarter page. “Like we said, we're very busy with many behind-the-scenes things over here, and we apologize if you feel left in the dark. As you can see, the things we have brewing that are keeping us occupied are BIG, and all for the purpose of getting you RED ASH in its biggest, bestest form. That's the reason we're less communicative than we'd like to be!”
