InXile follows through on promise to do it
In what we suspected was going to be a trend for quite some time, InXile has delivered on its promise to establish a Kickstarter page in its attempt to fund the development of Wasteland 2. Studio co-founder Brian Fargo says that if fans can raise $900,000 before April 17th, he can raise the last $100,000 to make Wasteland 2 a reality.
Fargo says that if $1.25 million is raised the funding will go into making the primary world bigger, adding more maps, and more divergent stories and music. If more can be raised, then more can be done, and the game will just get bigger.
So far, Fargo has been able to raise almost $400,000, or about halfway to what is needed to fund the project, with almost 7,000 backers committed to the project. For a $15 pledge backers get a digital downloadable DRM-free copy of the game for the PC, and your party will start with a unique and quirky skill that will not affect game balance. Additional rewards are available to backers in amounts ranging from $30 to $10,000 with a limited number of backers for each pledge amount.
