Linux and OS X Wasteland 2 Funded

The Wasteland 2 Kickstarter Page shows that the proposed RPG sequel has now surpassed the $1.5 million plateau, which they have maintained is the point at which they can guarantee Linux and OS X editions of the game. The site also now adorns a Kicking it Forward logo as a follow-up to recent comments by inXile entertainment's Brian Fargo about sharing community support. This is outlined in further detail in the story below.

They're obviously not going to use a triple AAA engine. It's a top down perspective. As far as I know, it might not even be 3D accelerated. I'm sure they're going to use something that already exists. Possibly a "open" engine, I'm guessing.

The point is, the emphasis does not appear to be on visuals, at least not cutting edge ones.

I would expect Icewind Dale, slightly modernized. How could you expect more with the money they've got to work with?

The music should be good. The writing should be good. The gameplay will hopefully be good.

Infinity Engine era graphics? I'm *very* cool with that.

Personally, I believe the Infinity Engine should have went open source and a toolkit should have been made available so people could use it for their own games without limitation.
