In the wake of “substantial” layoffs, Gas Powered Games and their Kickstarter campaign for Wildman may be in jeopardy.

“The studio is still operating, but we had to slim WAY down to conserve cash reserves,” CEO Chris Taylor told Gamasutra. These layoffs come just a few days after Gas Powered Games launched their Kickstarter campaign for Wildman.

In a video posted on Kickstarter, Taylor explains the layoffs, and asks fans for help deciding what the company’s next move should be:

“If I ran this team through the entire Kickstarter campaign and it fails to fund, then I have to let everyone go, shut the company down, no one gets any unpaid PTO or severance,”  said Taylor. “And that I decided was not worth it.

“Now that the team has been laid off, should I continue the campaign to see if the numbers do improve and hire them back? Or do I shut the campaign down tonight and call it done?”
