    we all remember Daikatana, right?

    Yes, we do.

    What's wrong with it? I still think it's a lot of fun for a quick pick-me-up bargain game.

    Daikatana is fairly universally regarded as a terrible game.

    I actually enjoy it, but there's no denying that it underdelivered on its promise.

    Do you think they were aiming for a comically sounding voice over from a B rated movie in their Kickstarter video?

    I think it's possible. They teased the kickstarter with a parody of the last star wars ending scene.

    Looks like it's been postponed rather than cancelled...

    They've cancelled the Kickstarter to concentrate on producing an actual gameplay demo, perhaps because they haven't had that much interest, or because some people are cautious about backing a game with no evidence of an actual game yet. They've only got $130k of their $700k target.

    I've heard the legends, but am ignorant of the truth. What was wrong with DaiKatana, aside from over-hype and under-delivering? Was it ahead of it's time? Bad strory? Bad gameplay?
