SaveHomeworld.com was an effort by interactive media firm teamPixel, LLC to revive the Homeworld gaming franchise on Windows, Linux, Mac, iOS, and Android through crowdfunding and community-driven development. Funds were raised for the development of the proposed games Homeworld 3 and Homeworld: Touch as well as the licensing of the Homeworld IP during the THQ bankruptcy auction which was held from April 1 to April 15, 2013.
Prior to the THQ bankruptcy, teamPixel had begun development of its own IP designed as a modern homage to the Homeworld-genre of space RTS, however, THQ's bankruptcy announcement offered teamPixel the unique opportunity to get involved with the franchise directly and to help channel the interest of fans. You can read more about our intentions in our VentureBeat interview.
Because the Homeworld franchised was instead obtained by Gearbox Software during the bankruptcy proceedings, teamPixel, LLC began distributing full refunds to its donors and has since redirected its efforts back to its own space RTS IP. You can follow our ongoing attempts to independently revive the Homeworld-genre space RTS on our Facebook and Twitter.
Homeworld has gone to a different home, but we're honored to have been supported by so many in the community. Use your Indiegogo, Kickstarter, or PayPal e-mail to track your refund.
teamPixel, LLC pitches their interest in reviving the Homeworld series to fans as part of their Indiegogo campaign.
