    Hey Nortar. Good idea. I'd be up for something like this. I know things like this have been done in the past, any idea what a reasonable target is?

    This is something I could get behind too, to atone for my sin of not backing the Monomyth fundraiser. Vigilantes was actually a really good game despite its developmental constraints.

    Hard to tell, but probably not enough to make an official codex fundraiser. Infinitron ?
    There are already 4 backers, judging by this thread; so maybe 10 is not out of reach.

    Hey ERYFKRAD - I've been doing what I can, but it's really hard to promote a Kickstarter. Few lets players cover them, and the traditional press for the most part aren't interested. I also ended up launching earlier than anticipated to avoid a slump at thanksgiving. This meant I didn't have much time to promote it (which pre early access, is mostly sending emails into the ether), and didn't give as much notice as I would normally.

    I think for the vast majority of people, PW will be a considerably better game. I'm guessing some people might like the setting of Vigilantes, but PW will have a much more interesting story.

    Give that guy Clik4gameplay a ring. Turn based games are not usually his thing but he does cover them.

    I nearly always end up disappointed by crowd-funded projects...

    But the early bird is cheap, and this seems promising, so what the hell. Backed.

    Thanks Desert Fish - it does seem that less people are interested in games at this stage of development. It really looks like Kickstarter is much more difficult than it was a couple of years ago.

    I backed Vigilantes but haven't got around to playing it. Backed this too. Good luck.

    Hey vazha - yep - Splattercat covered Vigilantes around the final release, so I contacted him.
