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.

Itís not that Fargo hates publishers, they are a necessary evilÖ itís that they wouldnít fund the projects he wanted to do.
Since Wasteland 2 is already funded, the publisher wonít get the chance to interfere with Brianís vision for the game.
Besides, I doubt Brian Fargo wants to spend HALF of the pledges towards marketing, fulfillment, and product support. Iím sure youíll agree, that money is better spent on game content.

"Of COURSE I have had some publishers call me to voice their interest in Wasteland and of me doing RPGs. I knew that was coming. I had one group that wanted to fund my marketing for a piece of the pie. I politely explained that we have an ARMY of fans who are better than any marketing campaign."

from an interview on ripten

I love it. Fucking publishers wouldn't give him the time of day, then they see all those filthy PC pirates putting up 3 million dollars in ADVANCE for this game, and suddenly they're his best friend.

God I hate publishers so much.

Thanks for the linkies, Headwound!
