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 can't help but think how much of a slap in the face the Double Fine and Wasteland 2 Kickstarters are to Christian Allen.

It is his own fault. He has done a piss-poor job on Kickstarter. He hasn't convinced the potential backers that he can get the job done.

His website is almost empty, he has no game title, no ideas. He keeps mentioning "his team" but so far it looks like it is just him (note how the blooper reel to his second video makes it look like he is alone and is operating the camera himself).
