With a total window of 34 days, the Wasteland 2 Kickstarter campaign has launched. The goal has been set at $900K. As Brian Fargo mentioned, they need $1M but if they don't make it to that amount he'll pitch in the final $100K himself. Watch the pitch video where Fargo explains the core ideas and his experiences pitching this to publishers, or read to lengthy write-up.<blockquote>Nuts and bolts time. We’re going back to the original and building from there. No first person shooter, we’re going top down so you get a tactical feel for the situation. And we’re not ditching the party play to turn it into some hack-and-slash bloodfest. It’s turn based, tactical, with a storyline that will be deeper and broader. We’re determined to keep the gritty, grim and satirical writing. We’re going to pitch those moral dilemmas at you. You’re going to be faced with the consequences of your actions. We’re planning on an initial 6 months of pre-production. We’ll nail down every important element that you, our creative partners, want. Once we have all that figured out, we buckle down for 12 month development cycle. During that time, players can get a sneak peek on a private closed beta through Steam. In addition, we will be giving you constant updates and showing you our progress along the way.</blockquote>Some points on Kickstarter for people new to it: - Money pledged to Kickstarter is "pledged". It won't be immediately removed from your credit card. Rather, only if Wasteland 2 makes it goal (of $900K) will the money be donated, on the final day of the Kickstarter drive. - Kickstarter works with Amazon payments. You'll need an Amazon account and a credit card. If you don't have a credit card, try a prepaid service like My Wirecard, or a service offered by your bank. Ask in this thread if you have any questions, we might be able to help. EDIT: the FAQ on the Kickstarter drive page has been updated. There is no shipping for the box inside the US, but outside the US you need to add $15 to your pledge amount to get the box (either the normal box or CE box) shipped to you. EDIT2: Russian users, here is a Kickstarter guide for you.
