Wasteland 2 Kickstarter Concludes at $3M+

The Kickstarter Campaign for Wasteland 2 has concluded, with inXile entertainment's post-apocalyptic RPG sequel taking in well over triple its initial USD $900K goal. The finally take listed on the website is $2,933,197, though a note on Shacknews states that this does not count almost $110K in PayPal pledges, so the final total exceeds $3 million. Update: Apologies for misstating the "kick forward" principle at first, which is a pledge of 5% of the project'a eventual profits, not these pledges. Thanks Alex.

If some dev said "Yeah, I'll use this funds to pay for my rent, and my laundry, and my lunches, and my attorney fees, and taking my girlfriend to see a musical", I wouldn't give him a dime.

Well, a lot of that falls under salary doesn't it? I think it's a no-brainer that these funds go to salaries and thus living expenses.

People that have a problem with Kickstater devs getting paid are idiots. What makes games? Manpower. Development money is mostly spent on man hours. People don't work for free. If you do work for free, you are stupid. Those that are actually in the financial position to work and take it off the backend later, that's their choice.

Just don't expect because it's through Kickstarter that devs should just donate their time to a project. Anyone that thinks this, should goto their boss tomorrow and tell them they don't want to be paid for 6 months, for the good of the company.
