Indie MMO TitanReach's "Funds Have Dried Up"
Follows unsuccessful fundraising efforts
I've heard of indie MMO TitanReach, but I think I always conflated it with the far-better-known Titanfall. Maybe that was Square Root Studios' first mistake, or maybe it was its cunning plan all along, to try and make gamers think one was like the other. Whatever the case, it didn't work and still isn't working, and the developer might not get another chance.
As MassivelyOP has noted, a message on the game's Discord server has informed players that "TitanReach Development has been paused as our funds have dried up." Even if you're not a fan of the game, it still might seem unfortunate that a plucky underdog company couldn't get its vision off the ground ... except MOP has the receipts from TitanReach's turbulent year-long history, which include:
- A failed Kickstarter
- A promised Indiegogo that never materialized
- Word of a pending shutdown in early 2021
- A "credit storefront"
- A message that some employees work "unpaid out of passion"
- A $70 price tag in the spring before going free-to-play in alpha
So maybe this is one that just wasn't meant to be. And now it probably won't. Oh, and if you did shell out for the game, don't expect a refund, as "The money has been spent," which seems about par for the course for this one.
