Five Kickstarter Games That Flopped Harder Than Mighty No. 9

6 of 6
Red Ash

Back to Mighty No. 9, it's sequel/spin-off Red Ash managed to turn people off the original game even more than the constant delays and changes in art style.  Set in a post-apocalyptic future, this open world third person shooter featured a cast of characters somewhat based on Mighty No. 9's, but with completely different designs.  Many were outraged that Comcept, the team behind both games, began work on Kickstarting both a sequel and an animated adaptation of said sequel before the first game had even released.  

Because of this, the game did not reach it's funding goals and had to seek out a publisher to get the project off the ground.  Even with said publisher, the demo that was released to backers felt unfinished, consisting of a room full of playable characters and physics objects that responded strangely to the player's interaction.  Given the reception of Mighty No. 9Red Ash's future is uncertain.
