    Tags: Black Isle Studios; Interplay; Project V13

    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...​

    Ooohh. :lol: 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.

    Anyone who gives any kind of money to Interplay (or affiliated entities) at this point is an idiot.

    That's just a slap on the wrist for Infinitron though, he'll gather the same amount back in under an hour.

    Looking at the "rewards", must be a social experiment. Then again, it's Interplay.

    I like how they blurred out "fallout" in that bunker to prevent a lawsuit from Bethesda.

    edit
    They also censored every time "fallout" got spoken.

    This is the worst pitch video I have ever seen.

    I would issue a rallying call for everyone to do their best to destroy this before it even gets off the ground. I think they may manage that by themselves though.

    FYI this project isn't actually on Kickstarter. It's something else: http://invested.in/

    People's stupidity is self evident, no need to experiment with it.

    They already got 20 bucks!

    They need money even for forum? :lol:

    Since there is no funding goal, I imagine you lose the money as soon as you pledge? If so, probably why they chose Invested.

    Yes. And yes.

    They raised 326 bucks so far! And yeah, they don't show the amount on the page but you can dig it out of the page source.

    Will it raise more than Grimwah?!

    They have forums, so what the hell...

    Still, it's not like the Codex can be critical of raising funds just to run a forum. Huh, guys?

    Totally can, Codex specialises in forums, the forum is our core functionality, so raising money for it is to support its primary function.

    Interplay claims to be a games company, they should be raising money for a game, not a forum.
