Self-described as "From the dark and twisted mind of a Serbian artist," management of failed the failed Asylum Playing Cards Kickstarter campaign have been ordered by a Washington Court to pay a $50,000 combined fee of fines and repayments after raising $25,000 from the public and failing to deliver.




Kicking off the plight for funds in 2012, over 800 donors helped raise the $25,000 asking price without a single soul actually receiving the final product. It is reported that before 2013 had come to a close, Altius Management (the owners of this game) stopped replying to the public all together.


Due to this court ruling, every Washington located donator will receive $668 in compensation, with Attorney General Bob Ferguson strongly stating that "Washington State will not tolerate crowdfunding theft," adding that all business' will be accountable for failing to deliver to consumers.
