Julian Gollop’s ‘Chaos Reborn’ Hits Funding Goal

XCOM creator Julian Gollop's 'Chaos Reborn' has managed to surpass its Kickstarter crowd-funding goal. The Kickstarter closed at $210,854, well above the $180,000 goal it was originally seeking. The project is based on Gollop's classic 1985 ZX Spectrum game, Chaos: The Battle of Wizards. The turn-based fantasy strategy game puts players in the shoes of a lone wizard with a small but powerful collection of spells.

Part of the last minute surge in donations (the project had hit the $160,000 mark three days ago) is likely due to the release of a web-based prototype of the game. The no-frills Unity-based web prototype gave players a taste of the game Gollop has planned, though it was missing fancy graphics and animations.

Unfortunately the campaign didn't hit the $240,000 mark, a stretch goal milestone number that would have enabled Gollop to create an iOS and Android version of the game.
