Wasteland 2 Kickstarts [ Game -> Update ]

More info on Game: Wasteland 2 | More info on Company: inXile Entertainment | More info on Person: Brian Fargo

As pointed out by our own St. Toxic, Brian Fargo's Kickstarter adventure has gone live earlier today. My best guess (which is pretty ropey) puts the start at around 1 PM CET (that'd be 7 AM Eastern for you americans, if I'm not mistaken), and you can't really call it anything other than a huge success. 12 hours in, 393 thousand dollars up (it went up 6k in the 5 minutes it took to make this post). There's already an official word on the page:

"WOW!!! You guys are amazing! The fans are really stepping up here with donations and spreading the word. I haven't been more excited to make a game in over a decade. It is a dream to focus all my attention on making a wonderful experience without distraction from outside forces. We will not let you down!"

So, if old school RPGing rocks your boat, or if you just want to contribute to Fargo's retirement fund, click right here for a piece of future Wasteland 2 goodness.

UPDATE: 466 468/900 k dollars get! Halfway through and it's not even been 24 hours. Averaging 57$ per "backer". Insane.

UPDATE 2: 24 hours after going live, numbers are as follows: 10.260 backers, 584 grand. At 1000$ or more, a whopping 55 backers out of 100 max. Double Fine's set the standard by grabbing around 1.2 million in 24h, twice what Wasteland 2 got, ending up with 3.3 million. If half of that is all that Fargo's going to get, that's still 600k over budget. Things are looking good for the cRPG fan.
