A crowdfunding campaign for a sequel to the classic console game James Pond has been canceled by Chris Sorrell, one of the game's original designers. The Kickstarter was launched last month by rights holder Gameware Europe, but with 11 days to go in the campaign it became clear that the crowd-funding campaign might not meet its goal - raising just £16,000 of its £100,000 target.
