The actual link (I decided to edit the URLs to remove the linking part, don't really want to drive traffic or search engine rankings to them, but I left enough for ppl to copy/paste to check it out):
blackisle.com

They ARE doing some form of crowdfunding, but its NOT kickstarter, or indiegogo or anything else like that. They are doing it all through their own website. I'm guessing that's to avoid even the minimal controls and rules that places like KS have in place.

This is pretty simply a money grab by Caen bros, who are basically trying to milk interplay's corpse dry. If you look at their financials for the term in which they were trying to dev fallout online, their BONUSES seemed to be more than the miniscule amount they spent to work on fallout online.

Be sure to read the FAQ:
blackisle.com/frequentlyasked.html
Will my contribution get me a copy of the Project V13 game if it is released?
No.

What do the funds go to? Here's one item:
Interplay's corporate expenses
aka Caen bros pockets.
They talk about how they will refund if they don't bother to make a forum, but they say they will only refund money thats not spent. Then in the very next section it says its "non-refundable" anyway.

Oh also I noticed that they promise "immediate access to a private forum" despite the fact they haven't even made one yet!

I wonder if they are going with that bulgarian masthead company again, with the one mostly failed MMO to their name. Whatever they are doing, if they had any work done at all, its going to have fallout references removed, and still trying to cash in on fallout. I mean look at the name, they using V13 as the game name (which beth doesn't own) and black isle as the studio name (despite that its basically black isle as a name only, nothing else). Basically handwaving and shouting, HEY LOOK AT ME, GIVE ME MONEY BECAUSE YOU THINK OF FALLOUT WHEN YOU SEE THIS!
