Update #15 – Welcome to our New Home

You found us!  Please bookmark this page for future reference.  Since we have some backers who supported us through Kickstarter and others through PayPal, we’ve decided to use this space for all new updates related to Wasteland 2.  We will still send out reminders through Kickstarter when we post important updates, but check back often for development information and to give your fan feedback.

Now that we’re funded, you’re probably wondering what happens for the next 18 months.  We’ve been hard at work preparing our core design principles vision document.  This document contains a solid overview of the important elements from which we will be crafting the detailed game design document.  Before we started on the vision document, we spent a lot of time on our forums reading what elements you feel are important and what systems and features you’re not too fond of.  The vision document will be available on our Wasteland portal in the next few weeks.

We already have an amazing community on our forums, and we know that it’s going to get better and better as we get further along in the game.  If you haven’t done so already, head there and let us know what’s important to you.  We’ve seen some wonderful suggestions that have already improved the vision of the game!

We are still working with some backers on account reconciliation through Amazon, and we will have a final list of all backers and reward tiers tomorrow.  Very soon we will prepare the questionnaires that correspond to your reward tier.  Here you will be able to give us all relevant information on your shirt size, NPC characters name, what package you want or any other applicable bits relating to the reward you selected.   Any information relating to in-game rewards (i.e. Statues, weapon names, shrines) we will use when setting our production specifications, so please try to send it back relatively soon.  We’ll set a deadline on it, but you’ll have a few weeks to reply.

Once we have that information back, we will also set up a backer database on our site.  You will be able to login with the user information you presented to Kickstarter or PayPal and can manage your reward tier here.  If you move in the future, just stop by and update your address.  If you’d prefer to be contacted at a different email, modify that in our database.  If you accidentally selected the wrong reward, you will have the opportunity to change it.  If you wanted a higher tier, but didn’t have the funds to secure it during the campaign, you will be able to upgrade your tier in a backer-only store.  We are not changing any of the tier limits, so sold out tiers are unavailable as upgrades.

Thank you for using the backer database as it will help things run smoother during the coming months of development, and we look forward to hearing your feedback on our vision document!

  21. It’s been several months since I pledged now and I’ve yet to receive a reward survey. Is this how it should be? I pledged through Paypal, if that helps.

  22. Pingback: Обновление #15 – добро пожаловать в наш Новый Дом. | Все по игре Wasteland 2. На русском.

  23. Update 16? Where is the survey too? See a lot of activity from Brian about Kicking it Forward and who has hit what milestone on their Kickstarter projects on Twitter, but nothing new on Wasteland 2. So, what’s going on with Wasteland 2?

  24. Since amazon didn’t accept our (my friend’s and mine) payments and my friend didn’t have the money when the kickstarted ended, I paid 30$ twice (1 for me and 1 for my friend) using my paypal account. I added my friends email as reference/message on the other payment with details concerning this and I’m wondering, is this going to work? I mean, stuck with this confusing method, does my friend get his pledge-tier goodies and do I get mine?

  25. I had the $250 tier for the longest time, but an emergency came up and on the last few days I had to change my reward to $15. I’m glad to find out that I’m still eligible to upgrade.

  26. People think writers, artists, game designers, etc. sit around in a bullet-proof box and that nothing ever affects them but that isn’t so. All comments affect creative people on some level. I hope fans keep that in mind as they post on the forums and in the blog.

    No creative person can work through a pile of hate without taking a hit.

  27. Just wondering if you do not want to offer the possibility for all bakers to “buy” your signings/autographs for boxed versions of the game. I am a backer for 100$ and would really like to have a signed box but 250$ was simply too much but I would surely spend some money for your autographs.

  28. I feel bad I actually didn’t look at this till the kickstarter was over, passed it off before thinking it was some fps for some reason. :/ Glad I took the time last week to actually see what this really was and can’t wait now tho.

  29. Mr. Fargo,

    I have been enjoying your games since I was a kid and Wasteland was one of my first and one of the best. When I saw that you needed help getting Wasteland 2 started I was more than happy to throw in some cash to the cause. Thank you for not giving up and sticking to what you believed in. No one understands what makes a good game accept another gamer. I have been involved on the forums to a small extent and I look forward to reading these updates.

  30. Hey, long as you guys offer widescreen support I’m happy to give you gents the creative room you need. Would recommend lifting more from the Baldur’s Gate/Planescape Torment HUD than the Fallout 1/2 one. That said, looking forward to small unit tactics and hoping/praying for an M14 in-game.
    Never played Wasteland before. Huge fan of Fallout. Spurn not the heathen.

  31. Really cannot wait for your vision document. I really love those and as someone who never got to play the original Wasterland I might have a few things I like.

  32. Very stupid question probably, but if you’re allowing upgrades of tiers, is there a possibility for more backers to join? I know I can just pre-order the game to help support the project in that way, but I am dying for a traditional ‘big-box’ edition of the game with some cool swag in it.

    I only go whiff of the recent kickstarter movement after this project was funded. Just putting my voice out there, maybe you guys might consider the idea!

    • I was there at the start, and I want my exclusivity, damn it!

      But really, if you just want the box, maybe we’ll be able to arrange something. I mean, I’ll upgrade to $50 (with money that you’ll PayPal me or something), use your address, you get the physical goods, I get all the rest. If it’s fine with Brian and the Wasteland team, of course.

  33. cool I can get a cloth map and such after all

    didn’t think i’d be able to do that with my total lack of cash at the time of the kickstarter(wasn’t even easy for me to get the $15 one at the time!)

  34. Looking forward to the vision document, but could we also see how you guys are actually coding the thing? As a fellow software developer I’d be interested in coding principles, arch design of a game as well. I understand this isn’t going to be open source, so I don’t expect a link to the svn repo, but _if you have the time_, then I wouldn’t mind seeing how a game is made from a developers perspective.

  35. Super, sounds like you’ve got things well in-hand. I doubt I’ll be making very many suggestions. I am just happy to see at least one last game that touches on those elements that got me interested in gaming in the first place. I just tried Binary Domain, and while it was an impressive project, to say the least, I found it lacking somewhat. These large scale 3D behemoths that have been coming out lately, like ME3, to name another disappointing large budget title leave much to be desired. I think all that “much” that we desire will be nicely laid out in Wasteland 2! Go Team Fargo!

  36. I think I’ll wait until the vision document comes out, before I start commenting on what I like/dislike. Otherwise, I’ll just start ranting about what I think I like in a game (eg, random encounters are fine if necessary, but try to not make them tedious and repetitive; I should always be able to back out of a fight, and really, combat that takes place on the same screen as the walking-around map is best, I think. Makes the game feel more seamless and immersive, as opposed to “welp, I’m being transported to random-encounter land again…sigh…). So yeah, I’ll try to refrain from doing that :P . Unless I am strongly encouraged to do otherwise.

    On another note – the backer-only tier-upgrading store is brilliant. So is using this to change your contact/shipping info. Whoever designed this system might want to try pitching it to kickstarter: imagine if the kickstarter website had a built-in “post-success” system just like this, where you could upgrade tiers (at the project-creator’s discretion), built-in forums, etcetera.

    Oh, and thank you for the black color scheme on this blog. The white background that most websites seem to love (see: google.com; compare to: blackle.com) seems rough on my eyes, especially at night. ^_^;

  37. Just to clarify, when you say we can login using our kickstarter or PayPal details, surely they haven’t given you our passwords??

    • I’m pretty sure you will have to register with the same e-mail you used on PayPal/KickStarter and the password and other details will be set up here. That’s how it worked with the Double Fine Adventure AFAIK.

  38. enough news and emails about prizes and funding … please send news about actual game creation and how it looks schedule wise

  39. Can not wait for the vision doc. What do you say to the folks that formed such a grand initial vision? Everyone is terribly excited for W2.

  40. I’m really surprised with the thought you put behind this. Your’e really in-tune with what your supporters/customers want. Other kickstarters would do well to emulate you and I’m sure that the database systems you’ve developed recently will be of good use 18 months down the line, when you want to fund an even bigger, better Wasteland 3 (or whatnot).

  41. The Landsharks are satisfied with your update. You may now go about your business knowing that you still have us as powerful allies!

  42. Wow, what I wanted to hear and then some. You guys are truly impressive and I hope Double fine and Hairbrained Schemes follow suit with how they handle such personal information.

  43. I backed you guys on Kickstarter at the 50$ level but forgot to add 15$ for shipping. How do I got about correcting that?

  44. I’m continually impressed by your ideas and actions. A backer database with the ability to change details and upgrade the tier is just great.

    • This! Exactly, I´m amazed by this, didn´t expect I might change my tier (for better) – so this month, if I will have that money, I will change my tier to higher one :) Thank you, guys, for this opportunity!
