Ed Annunziata, the man who made Ecco the Dolphin, has been unsuccessful on Kickstarter. His target was $665,000 to fund his new Ecco-style game The Big Blue, but he managed to raise just $55,764.
He’s downsizing his goal to make a smaller, cheaper version of the same game. It will now be called Little Blue.
“I am absolutely certain that if you could try the game and see how beautiful and unique it will be, most people would not hesitate to back it, and will want to be involved in it’s creation,” he wrote on Kickstarter.
Little Blue will have one payable dolphin plus another unknown sea creature. There will be song mechanics, two very large environments to explore, private ocean environments and 10 or more significant creatures.
