The strange, faintly disturbing tale of Mythic: The Story of Gods and Men (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/273246798/mythic-the-story-of-gods-and-men) was uncovered by Something Awful (http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?noseen=0&threadid=3469966&pagenumber=14#post403093286), picked up by our very own forum (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/forums/showthread.php?3301-Kickstarter-et-alia&p=122329&viewfull=1#post122329) and from there sent on to Reddit (http://www.reddit.com/r/Games/comments/sxa9b/kickstarter_scam_project_mythic_story_of_gods/), which in turn led to the project in question‚??s shutting down.
