    Very happy to see it doing well.
    Would be great if NMA covers Shadowrun Returns too.
    SR is not post apo but cyberpunk a bit the same mood and audience IMHO.

    Yeah, but is torment going to have big guns?

    Eh? That's from PS:T? The font and background looks wrong and I really don't remember that part. You sure it's not from BG or IWD?

    Edit: I just noticed the filename. bg1_blah
    BG1 then.

    Better example is something like this:
    Spoilered for size, though I guess the content is kinda spoiler territory too.

    bah, it is. dammit. >_<

    There was one like that in PS:T though. :(

    EDIT: Yeah, I didn't post the example you used because it's pretty extremely spoilery.

    EDIT^2: Found this one and it's not particularly spoilery.

    Mhm not really. The only thing I can take from the screenshot is that the protagonist can merge with other people. But since the context is missing, I have no idea what that's supposed to mean.

    Well, you don't actually die, so if you don't mind a trip to the mortuary, you'll be fine. You can also ressurrect your companions.

    In any case, I also recommend playing PST. The only downside, for me, was the combat. RTWP just isn't my cup of tea, but the rest of the game more than makes up for it. To say that it's the best writing I've seen in a game is an understatement.

    As for the new game, I'll be pledging later this week.

    Huh :shock:

    That got funded pretty fast. And 30 more days to go, things could not look better at the moment.


    Well good luck for inXile, i hope you will succeed in making a good Torment game and you will have a good time while doing it.

    I woke up, watch the amount, 12blah blah "Oh! only 0.12 million bucks? it's too slow." and I wash my I and reconfirm the amount and "what? already 1.2 million? not 0.12 million?" Wow.... :clap:

    Well, there are a couple times where if you mess with the wrong people you are dead dead IIRC.

    As much as I've loved the idea of kickstarter before the whole thing started I helped fund the beginning of Mechwarrior Online and it turned out to be so much optimized for better systems than mine that I can't play it worthwhile. Not only that, but being that I was cautious about doing something I had never done before (fund a game in production) and wasn't even sure that M:O would be my type of game I was so eager to get the full rewards I paid at the highest tier...$120. Over a months worth of normal "unnecessary" expenditures.

    Nevertheless I put in $45 for the T:ToN kickstarter and chose the option which gives me a copy of Wasteland 2 (which I somehow forgot to pledge for).

    While I'm glad inXile was able to get this funded so quick, I'm going to have to hold off on pledging for this.

    Just curious, why so? Something's not looking good enough?

    I don't think it's my type of game. Though if Planescape: Torment goes on sell via and see if I like the game style.

    Only 70 of the $110 Tier slots left. I wish I wasn't so broke right now, I'd grab one right now. But all I really want is the damn cloth map. $110 is too much for that over what I can get at the $65 level. $95 would've been worth it to me, but I woke up after all those were gone. *sigh* :(

    Here's a guide on how to make the ultimate Torment install. For those who haven't played it yet.

    If Fargo has money for a limo, he doesn't need Kickstarter money. QED.
