Dark Deception looked like an interesting Kickstarter game. Its shortened premise: Think Pac-Man meets Silent Hill meets crazy evil monkeys. Then it closed the doors on funding.

Its developers, Glowstick Games, noted in an update that “it had become apparent [they’d] made some mistakes” and decided to quickly pull the plug.

 

The low number of backers—just 43 with only about $1,000 out of a $50,000 goal—probably helped with that indication. Glowstick hope to make adjustments to the game and re-launch it.

Dark Deception looked like it had promise, though. A fully 3D game with a hellish backstory, players are running away from monsters and trying to collect all the shards. It had Wii U support as well as Oculus Rift play.

It also was to have starred the voice talent of Carolyn Seymour, the voice behind Gears of War’s Queen Myrrah. She would have played the role of Helen Bierce, the strange starlet who disappeared along with her legendary ring.

 

The dev team itself has worked on a variety of solid triple-A titles, including Uncharted 2 and 3, Gears of War, Silent Hill and Bioshock Infinite. We’ll be keeping an eye open for the re-release of this game.

 

Dark Deception was aimed for release on the Wii U and PC.
