    This is awesome. I need to borrow credit card from someone now. Anyway, I hope they will reach 1M $ although for now it doesn't look that good. We need to advertise it better. Anyone with a blog or site should post a link to it for example.

    Considering it's almost at 100k already, and the fact that it's gone up by about 20k the last hour or so, I'd say the Kickstarter would reach its goal in 2 weeks or so.


    ACtually, considering the fact that it's early morning in the US still, and people wont be able to find out about this or Pledge till in a couple hours, there's no way I could predict anything.

    What!? It's looking good to me. It could always be advertised more, but I think it is doing fine.

    You are kidding right? This is only up for 4 or 5 hours I think. Today it will go to 500k for sure!

    DF got a ton of (very positive) exposure on just about every gaming site and blog there is, not to mention huge mainstream sites like Reddit. Hopefully, the talent behind this team and the initial success will have the same effect.

    This funding just exploded like a blood sausage. It's over 90K now. Can't wait to get my copy of the game.

    Well, it will be at 100k in a few minutes. Then we only have 800k left. That's pretty good for the first few hours. It is more than what I have expected.

    LOL what the fuck!

    It's going to be at 100,000 before noon, after having been up for only a few hours. Whatever you're smoking, I'll have some of that! :lol:

    I need to borrow a credit card so i will pledge latter.
    I want name of NMA members (if any) who have pledged 1000$, it will be very enjoyable to kill you in the game (i had never like any of you!) :wink:
    And if any us pledge 5000$, finding some nice TNT would be at the top of my to do list when playing W2... :twisted:

    89,797$ in the first few hours seems "pretty good" to me.

    I agree with your statement that people who support this project should spread the word if they can.

    Things can go really fast in this day and age, If someone were to ask a famous internet commentator like say Total Biscuit about his opinion of Wasteland 2 and if he thinks old-school RPG's can still be viable in today's market thousands of gamers would learn about Wasteland in just a few minutes for example.

    No shit! I couldn't have anticipated that it would take off like this. 10% of their goal in a day? Kickstarter is God's gift to gamers. :D

    $97,818 @ 10:46 CST.

    That's about 3 hours from when I pledged at 7:45 CST. It was around $4500 when I pledged.

    And one minute later it is already at 101k.

    I love to watch the number. I could go F5 on it the whole day.

    There's been an over 80,000 increase in just little over two hours since I pledged (over 100k reached). Updating that page has officially become my favorite hobby now.
