Wasteland 2 Kickstarter Drive ends, $3.04M raised

Postby Brother None » April 17th, 2012, 4:09 am

The Wasteland 2 Kickstarter Drive just ended, closing in at $2,933,147. The Paypal Drive (which will not close until later today for the Johnny-come-latelies among us) adds $107,152. This puts the total funds raised at $3,040,299.

While Wasteland 2 did not end up beating Double Fine Adventures, it raised significantly more than most of us were predicting beforehand. It has hit all of the funding goals it set for itself, and because of that added Linux and Mac versions, Russian and Polish localizations, Chris Avellone design, Obsidian tools and a modkit to its development goals.

Well done, everyone!

Time Stop

*ahem*

Summon Furniture: Tables

Quickened Summon Furniture: Chairs

Summon Glass: Flutes of champagne

Quickened Summon Bottle: Bottles of champagne

Summon Crockery: Plates

Quickened Summon Food: Cakes

End of Time Stop

Cheers !

Also, wow, 3 million dollars... Honestly, I didn't believe we would reach that goal. I guess congratulations are in order (again).

Note: my Time Stop spell is in no way responsible for the laggy forum. Also, we may need more cake. Any other Conjurer around here ?

The Internet rips a clip, hitting Wasteland 2 for 3,040,299 dollars of donations, reducing it to the best game ever!

Congratulations to everyone involved. :)

It was barely more than a faint candle a few weeks ago. The candle of hope that allowed us to find our way home in the dark, desolate desert of computer gaming. With each and every one of us, the light has grown stronger. The candle soon became a torch and the torch soon started to shine brightly, fueled by the hopes of all those gathering in its light.

Today, the torch will embark on its journey towards the promised land. May it not only continue to shine, but light the skies ablaze, so that we will never have to live in the darkness again.

Amen.

No pressure Brain :) We do not expect a lot from you. Resurrect the genre, deliver us to the promised land, solve the issue of world hunger and while you are at it.. you could really do something about world peace as well.

Best of luck for the journey.

I have to admit, for a while there I honestly didn't think we were going to hit $3m but I woke up this morning and was very surprised. Great job everyone. Now we've all got a very long 18 months until we can, "explode like blood sausages".

And thus it came to pass that the Internet gave Brian Fargo 3 million dollars. And it was good, as Brian would deliver the Internet away from the darkness of bland FPS remakes.
For if it would not end up good, Brian would be fed to the ravenous hordes of trolls that live in the deepest, darkest corners of the undulating series of tubes that is our home.

No pressure, sir. ;)

If nothing else, I expect the drama and resultant flamewars from all this kickstarter business to be epic. :D

Congratulations to everyone involved.

And while it might not be history in the making, I really hope that this and the success of Double Fine Adventure WILL change the perspective of some people about the way games are made today, the path the industry is taking, and maybe it might even modify the way *some* idiots in a suit view "the market" :P

Best of luck to Brian and his team, and again... no pressure :mrgreen:

Wait, I see mod kit added to the list of goals. Does this mean it's confirmed that they're being made?

That was only a contingent against it not hitting the minimum funding. You could consider it an "emergency budget" now in case the game hits any major unforeseen delays, but it will not be a part of the base budget.

Wasteland 2 actually DID raise more than DFA! If you take this official "where did the money go" chart from Double Fine into consideration:

Give it a while, drake. If it bounces Kickstarter will ask for a correction. Don't worry, you'll have 7 days to fix any problem if it shows up. But mostly just give them some time, they don't pull from the credit cards instantly, it can take a while.

Yeah, but WL2 will have a significantly bigger "rewards" slice than DFA did, they offered much more in the way of physical goodies.
