Wasteland 2 Kickstarted; OS X and Linux Thresholds Near

inXile Entertainment announces their recently launched Wasteland 2 Kickstarter Campaign reached its $900,000 goal within 48 hours, and the fund to support development of the post-apocalyptic RPG sequel currently stands at over $1.1 million, and word is they are nearing the point where they can commit to Linux and OS X support:

In a message posted to all of the backers of the project, inXile said, "This is a paradigm shift that is bigger than Wasteland 2. This is the beginning of a new era in gaming where the developer gets to work directly with the fans to build the type of product that the fans want. The games are fan funded with fan input and use digital distribution methods to bypass both publishers and retail.

The latest status of the now funded project has the number of backers at over 20,000 and the funds pledge at over 1.1 Million Dollars. With over 30 days left until the funding ends, Fargo has hopes of being able to soon announce more features that will be added to the project, saying, "The fact that our supporters are buying in at an average of over $55 each says a lot about the level of dedication the fans have towards this product. No matter how much money is raised, all of it will go into making the best game we possibly can." On the strength of this early success and in response to popular request, he has already added a Linux version to go along with the Mac version at the rapidly approaching $1.5 million milestone.

    I'm on the fence about backing this one. I never played the first one, yet I like old-school PC games that are modernized for today's resolutions and OS's (they don't necessarily have to be graphical masterpieces.. but not pre-millenium either).

    Anyone have any experiences with the first game that would convince me to back this project?

    If you enjoyed any of the following games you would love Wasteland 2. Not just because of the setting but what Brian Fargo brings to the table. Great stories, mechanics, comedy, etc.

  • Fallout

  • Baldurs Gate

  • Star Trek: 25th Anniversary (awesome game!)

  • Planescape Torment

  • Icewind Dale

  • Stonekeep


  • It's 15.00 I mean seriously even if you dont like his previous work at least put in to show you support this new model.
