Tik Games first announced Chucky: Wanna Play? last May with an expected release date of Fall 2011 on the PC, PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade. But the Fall came and went and gamers certainly didn’t get lucky with a brand new Chucky game. Now we know why.
The developer has turned to Kickstarter to help fund the rest of the development of Chucky: Wanna Play?, which has now become a PC exclusive. Tik Games is seeking $925,000 to complete the game for an expected release date of May 2013.
“After securing the video game publishing rights for this menacing little character, we decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the development. This allows us to build the game for gamers and not worry about watering down our vision to appease mass market game resellers,” said Alex Tikhman, Co-Founder and VP of Publishing & Business Development for Tik Games. “If our campaign is successful, we will create a game that truly captures the edge-of-your-seat thriller action of the menacing spirit Chucky.”
The Chucky: Wanna Play? Kickstarter campaign will run through November 14, and if you’re willing to open your wallet extra wide, Tik will even let you contribute to the game’s development.
