Wasteland 2 Beta Near; Wasteland Re-release Nearer

The Kickstarter update #38 for Wasteland 2 has promising news for backers of by inXile entertainment's upcoming RPG sequel. While they say the early beta of the game "is not quite ready yet," they add they are "almost there," though they are not going to rush this (thanks Pope Viper). Meanwhile, they also announce their re-release version of the original Wasteland is ready to roll, and has been submitted to Steam and for release as soon as tomorrow. This will be initially only be available to backers of the project, who will have a choice of their preference between a Steam of GOG key. They also add a little more detail about what's been done to rework the original for modern systems:

To briefly elaborate on our last update’s notes on this re-release, we got a ton of feedback based on what we showed you about our Wasteland 1 tweaks. We spent some time implementing a number of the changes our community suggested; a toggle to turn smoothing off, implementing swappable portraits, tweaking portrait art options, in-game manual text on abilities, stats and skills and ensuring it works on Mac and Linux.
