Double Fine Kickstart Ending; Wasteland 2 Kickstart Beginning

Double Fine Adventure by Double Fine and 2 Player Productions Kickstarter Campaign will conclude today, offering the last chance to earn supporter rewards (thanks nin). They passed the $3 million plateau last night, so the game's $400,000 budget seems pretty covered. In other Kickstarter news, the promised Wasteland 2 by inXile entertainment Kickstarter Campaign is now underway to fund the $900,000 budget for the post-apocalyptic RPG sequel. They offer their own set of supporter rewards, and the following outline of the project:

For Wasteland 2, we’re getting the band back together again!. Brian Fargo who Executive Produced both Wasteland and Fallout will be heading the team. Alan Pavlish and Mike Stackpole—the original game’s primary designers—are coming back to put the project together, and we’re rounding up as many of the other designers, like Ken St. Andre, as we can. On top of that, we’ll have music by Mike Morgan of Fallout 1 and 2 fame. The storyline for Wasteland 2 was written by Jason Anderson who was the co-creator of Fallout. We have also enlisted the help of the amazing concept artist, Andree Wallin to help craft the Wasteland 2 world.

What if...

Moulyneaux came out and said he would make a remake of Populous or Powermonger or even Syndicate?
Braben came out and said he would make Elite 4?
Garriot would come out and make a true successor to Ultima?
Sensible Software got together again and made a real Cannon Fodder 3?
Bitmap Brothers together to make Xenon 3?

And they wouldn't suck? One can dream...

Molyneaux is flush with cash and I don't think people would be as on-board. No one trusts him and he's had the cash/clout to do anything he wants any time he wants.
I think Braben, Sensible and BB would get money but not like this. People remember Wasteland better and Brian Fargo has remained a relevant name.

When Chris Roberts comes out and says he needs funding for Wing Commander, though, all hell will break loose.


Any over/unders on this? I'm saying it falls short of Schaefer's, but maybe in total donations, not total cash.
