Sociable soccer

Looks like the kickstarter failed. Does this mean there's not much interest in the gaming masses for classic footy remakes?

I'd guess the younger people don't want the classic-style games, as they don't provide the "Play as C.Ronaldo"-feature, while you watch from the side, as you do when watching footy on the telly.

After all they have failed with SS98 and SS2006, what do they expect?

Jon Hare blew £1M in '98, did he really think he could make a better game than that pile of tosh in 2016...for 600k? Guy seemed really sneaky to be honest, getting in with Dino and then attempting to make a rival game without telling him of his intentions.
The guy don't even program anyway does he? (Jon Hare), just seems to have a knack at getting talented people to do his bidding.
