One of our users noticed
that Interplay's BlackIsle.com
site had been updated. Let's check it out!
Project V13 (PV13) is the first planned Black Isle Studios release in years, a post-apocalyptic strategy RPG. You will create a character to represent yourself within the game world. Your character will be a hardy adventurer from a variety of backgrounds; one of the last remaining humans, a new breed mutant, or a technologically advanced cyborg. The choice is yours.
So, Project V13
is being brought back from the dead as a single player game for the Kickstarter Age. More CRPGs is good, ri-
But we can't do it alone. We need to raise money to put together a prototype. We need more developers and staff. This is a big world we're developing.
[...] We can then use this prototype to raise the additional funds necessary to complete the game.
Uh. Well, let's look at the FAQ
Will my contribution get me a copy of the Project V13 game if it is released?
No. This campaign isn't meant to fund the final PV13 video game.
So what DO I get?
"What's in it for me?" It's a fair question. Your contribution at $10 and up will get you access to news, special updates, and content from the new Black Isle Studios - PV13 forums. At $20 and over, you will achieve special insider status and you will be able to participate in a restricted area of the forum to interact directly with the BIS game designers - make suggestions, discuss our progress, ask us what we had for lunch...
Have I mentioned that there's also no funding goal?
It would appear that Herve Caen has decided to grant us the precious gift of lulz this Christmas. Happy holidays, Codex.
