Wasteland 2 Kickstarter Update #30: On Factions, Damonta and other stuff
Game News - posted by Infinitron on Fri 28 June 2013, 17:16:33Tags: inXile Entertainment; Wasteland 2
This month's Wasteland 2 Kickstarter update covers a wide range of topics. I'll go over them one by one.
First of all, inXile will soon be ready to ship out backer T-Shirts. Normally, we aren't interested in merchandising gimmicks here at the Codex, but it seems these shirts will represent some of the factions from the game, and a concise description of the factions is provided:
If you pledged for a shirt, be sure to log onto Ranger Center and select the one you want. Speaking of Ranger Center, the update also informs us that the team is going to start finalizing all backer content over the next few months, so make sure you've entered all of that into Ranger Center as well. Pledge tiers that include backer content ($500 and up) will become unavailable starting from July 31st.
The update lists some recent Wasteland 2-related news, which you may be aware of if you've been following on Twitter or Facebook. There are these two portraits, the latter of which is a representation of Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan, who has been an enthusiastic backer of both Wasteland 2 and Torment (I think there may be a bit of a wish fulfillment element here). There's also an official Wasteland 2 fan site now, where you can find a transcript of the design documents that Chris Avellone showed at his recent Rezzed presentation, among other things.
Finally, there's a general update on the state of production and a new screenshot of Damonta, a location within the game:
This is followed by a description of Damonta, told from an in-game perspective by a character named "Werewolf Wally", who is a radio jockey there. Werewolf... wait a second, is that supposed to be a Three Dog reference?!
