Sad news for dinosaur fans and, more importantly, backers who supported developer Supercrit's dino-hunting survival game The Stomping Land - after an extended from its lead developer, the game appears to have been removed from sale on .
Though the game's Steam store page is still accessible, there's no longer an option to buy it. There's been no official announcement from Valve or Supercrit as to exactly why the game's no longer available. Doesn't take a genius to work it out, though.
Kickstarted last year to the respectable tune of $114,000, The Stomping Land entered Early Access back in May. Since then lead developer Alex Fundora and his studio Supercrit LLC have been worryingly quiet. In fact, there's been no update on development since June. If Valve has now stepped in to de-list the product, that suggests they no longer believe Supercrit are capable of completing the project. It doesn't bode well for customers who've already supported it with their hard-earned cash.
We'll keep an eye out for any official response from either Valve or Supercrit. It's a sobering reminder that not every Kickstarter project has the solid groundwork of something like Divinity: Original Sin. Be super-triple-double sure before you back anything.
