The Secret World's
spin-off alternate reality game, The Black Watchmen
, failed to meet its crowdfunding goal
of $100,000 this week. As a result, all donations will be refunded and the team will hand out in-game outfits
for its supporters.
The team hasn't said die yet, stating: "We are working hard to find alternative solutions for funding this great project and we hope we will be able to count on you in our future endeavours."
Currently, the team is doing a post-mortem
and considering its next steps. Some of the possible options for future funding that the team is looking at include a Kickstarter campaign and a publisher. The Black Watchman
was intended to be a long-running persistent ARG based in The Secret World
