    Hello, my name is Mr. Évreh. And I come from, uh... someplace far away. Yes, that'll do. Anyway, I say we invest our money back in the Black Isle project or whatever this is:

    So it's not even some kind of homemade kickstarter. I think it's brilliant.

    This is both the worst and the best thing.

    Chris, Chip, Mark, why are you involved in this :( Makes me sad.

    But yeah, this is basically a really shady way to beg some money together for a prototype. I don't know what they're thinking. It's fairly awful. Lot of the worst things of crowdfunding combined.

    The hell?! You don't know Christopher Taylor?! I mean, Mark O'Green or Chip Bumgardner ok, they're veterans but not super-wellknown, but Chris?! What the he-

    Fuck off, there's no way I don't know who Chris Taylor is. Put your dick away. I'm referring to the rest of the bums they had to trot out in the vid.

    I used to love BIS so much I visited their website every single day in the early 2000s, and I've never even heard those names.

    Hervé is going to make more money than Guy Henkel.

    They don't say. Yip. Not shady at all.

    Well yeah. He already did. Since Henkel made nothing.

    It's hard to imagine, but someone will donate to this. What a world we live in.

    The game itself sounds kinda cool.

    It's sorta like Vault 13 Tycoon.

    This is just the thing DarkUnderlord needs to copy to maximize fundraiser profits. Go on, DU, make a kickstarter video. $25 gives you access to NEWS about when GD might be back :troll:

    I think the game idea does sound cool, myself. Plus the vid is just funny enough. The problem is that you're basically funding their forum. Can't be worse than Codex fund-raisers. I'm sure Herve won't take away general discussions.

    Hahaha what is the point of restarting BIS if they cannot afford to fund anything with the new studio?

    The audacity is eye-wateringly fantastic. It's like if a guy raped your mom and then asked if he could babysit your daughter.

    yeah, that's a real bummer. I hope there was a gun off-screen
