Alright, the new story line stretch goal has been reached. Now for the ultra-awesome-hidden story line at $80k ;-)

not even close
I mean like somebody pointed out, it's hard to blame the guy for making safe choices to keep the lights on instead of taking a risk on some big bold project. But with crowdfunding the whole point was to allow developers to do something bolder basically risk-free and it's a bummer that it never materialized.
But he so old...

... and tired.

Is there still no music in the Geneforge remakes?

With Vogel's approach to visuals, do you really want to have him add the music to his games?

All that copy/pasting for his remakes might have worn him out.

That and writing the same article over and over about how people really just want to power game.

I give the man points for the original titles he has released, but he's remade the Exile series twice now and is remaking Geneforge.

Honestly the first time I played through Geneforge I turned on the Fallout soundtrack. It really seemed to fit the mood of the game.

That's why I ask. I preferred to play them with my own music going and hope that's retained.

I'm not sure these ultra-awesome story add-ons are a good idea. Geneforge 1 remake was good, because it was an almost identical copy with some very minor gameplay improvements. Current year Vogel as a creator of new content is not something I eagerly await. I almost hope he swindles everyone, pockets the extra money, and just ports G2 unaltered into his standard remake engine.

The Geneforge 1 Kickstarter had a story add-on as well and it was pretty good. It was the entire ascended storyline.
