Developer Zojoi are $39,187 USD behind target with only fifty-six hours remaining on their Kickstarter page, which is attempting to gather $55,000 USD to bring nine Sherlock Holmes mysteries to Mac, PC, iOS, and Android. Called the “Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective Adventure Mysteries”, they would be remastered remakes of the classic video-based game of the same name released in the early ’90s.
On April 16th, project co-ordinator David Marsh explained what would happen if the campaign didn’t reach its goal. “I tried my best to be up front that this campaign was not about funding or kickstarting my company,” he wrote. “It was about getting others involved and on the game team and getting the games released in a timely way. We will continue to work on these mysteries and release them as we are able.”
The comments on the Kickstarter page show the disappointment of those who have already pledged to the project. One particularly dedicated supporter wrote “really, really want this Kickstarter to succeed; upped my pledge to $600” ten days ago. Some even hope that the game will achieve its goal through more mentions on blogs and websites – so if you want to contribute, you can do so here.
