Yet another success story for Kickstarter, Wasteland 2 is fully funded in 42 hours and 30 minutes. After the phenomenal success of Double Fine Games, Brian Fargo decided to try the same thing with a sequel to Wasteland. The game promises to be as close to the original as possible. In a recent interview with RockPaperShotgun Fargo confirmed that the game is going to be a isometric turn based game where you control a party of rangers. I’m for one very excited and I know at least a few of us at Blue Screen of Awesome are helping to get the game funded. If you are interested in the project go can still contribute until April 17th. Extra money will go towards expanding the world, so don’t hold back .
It is going to be interesting to see what other projects will be funded like this in the future. Kickstarted enables these companies to create old school games we all loved to play when we were younger. Games that wouldn’t be viable in the current market (or so they say…). The question remains how long these projects stay fresh and when people tire of yet another Kickstarter project, until that time comes however, what game would you like to get kickstarted?
