Bugbear Entertainment has canceled its Kickstarter campaign for its new title, currently titled “Next Car Game,” after it became “obvious” that it wouldn’t meet its goal.
The developer is not canceling the game itself, just the Kickstarter. Players can still pre-order the game via the game’s official website. Anyone that has already pre-ordered can now download a “technology sneak peek,” which features a test track and 24 cars.
“In the full game the action will take place on many locations, including a number of race tracks and derby arenas,” the developer wrote. “We’re also going to improve the gameplay and technology on many fronts such as car damage and handling, and our Early Access customers will get a chance to experience these improvements first-hand during the Early Access phase!”
The game only managed to raise $81,722 of its $350,000 goal.
