In a very sad bit of news today, the folks behind the spiritual successor to the Police Quest series, PRECINCT, have announced that the project is canceled due to lack of crowd-funding momentum. On a personal note, I was really looking-forward to this one. Sad way to start a weekend!
Letter from Jim Walls, creator of the game:
Dear Precinct Fans and Backers,
Unfortunately, it appears our timing for the presentation of Precinct just wasn’t right. So, sadly, I’m writing to inform you that further production will be set aside at this time.
I want to thank each and everyone of you from the bottom of my heart for all the support and encouragement you have shown throughout this campaign. It was great fun hooking up and talking with some of the old fans once again. I have to say, Sierra fans are the greatest!
Also, I want to thank the Precinct team for their long hours and the many sacrifices they all made during our campaign. It was a labor of love for sure! I especially want to give two thumbs up to Tiny Castle Studios for the great job they did with the Precinct presentation. Your hard work, sacrifice and belief in the project was inspirational. It was great working with you all.
This is not the end! Precinct will rise again! It’s too good not to.
