One True Game Studios has halted its Kickstarter campaign for the parody one-on-one fighter Divekick, explaining that the game now has funding from an unnamed publisher.
"The reason for this is simple," the studio notes in a recent Kickstarter update. "The spirit of Kickstarter is as a creative 'last resort,' if there is no way to get your game funded, hit up Kickstarter to see if there's enough community interest in funding it. Well, we are happy to inform you today that we've made a deal with a publisher to help us both finish and release Divekick to the masses!"
The cancellation was made shortly after Divekick achieved its Kickstarter funding goal of $30,000. Backers will not be charged, but are still eligible to receive many of the project's promised rewards, including custom characters, in-game appearances, and t-shirts (which must be purchased separately).
