    You right. But I thought that inXile will also make few original games. For me this kickstarter something like a manifest.

    One & a half.

    BUT!!!

    The one I got (Wasteland 2) was exactly what I was expecting!
    It was a solid game in a period when good crpgs were nowhere to be found!
    So it was a good game especially for its time.
    And I played the beta of Torment and I think it's going to be amazing!

    So I trust InXile with their products.
    And I can wait the years...if they'll keep making good games.

    I can understand some of the complains here.
    But I think that some people here made InXile their enemy...for no good reason.

    The picture is not impressive, but the description of all the juicy loot I could pick up is compelling. That was yesterday, however, and today I have moved on to other things. This suggests that paying money for a game that may be out in three years is not a wise decision.

    Not sure why people are butthurt about the "pre-order" thing. Essentially every kick/fig starter is a pre-order, some have longer scopes than others. And come on 25 bucks? Hardly alot of money, maybe for some of you, but most new games cost 50-60 bucks from a preorder. 25-35 dollars is such a low amount, that it's throwaway money, forgettable.

    Regardless, I am very hopeful that Styg will soon announce, that he is indeed working on the game alongside InXile and Chris from The Brotherhood, because it would seem logical, given that one of the two games connected to the figstarter, has already an official announcement of the devs working on it with InXile.

    All the people who missed the major Kickstarters and want to learn a lesson about game development on their own, expect an influx of whining new members in 2019

    Don't you have anything else to say? Just spewing shit because that is the Codex way to react to everything? Why do you think people give them money, hotshot? Maybe they enjoyed their games earlier and want this game to succedd as well.

    Why does some idiots on the Codex believe that their opinion of a game is the one true opinion in the world? Guess what, it is not!

    Also, guess what, if your opinion aligns with the majority it is very likely you are a simpleton who can't form his own opinions.

    Guess what!

    It's about enjoying or not enjoying a former game of a developer making a new one - I at least, never liked a game because it was loved or hated by the majority. And I doubt very hard there are many people around enjoying a game that would normally be shit for them, only because most people like it.

    It's true, Infinitron is without a game industry job to this day.

    Kickstarter was never about making the wise decisions. It's a question of wanting to see a game made and how much you're willing to sink money towards it. In this context backing wasteland 3 is a bit redundant. I don't have too much money to throw around so I'm not backing either, but seeing all the crpgs that came from kickstarter, I'm convinced that backing in general is a good thing.

    Understanding FeelTheRads--> always be on the opposite opinion so you look smart.

    Guess what, sometimes one's own opinion is in line with the majority's opinion.

    Irrelevant. You keep using the majority opinion in some attempt to validate your opinion in front of others and/or for yourself.

    Whether your formed your opinions yourself or just chose the most popular one really doesn't matter if you have to defend it like that.

    Does FeelTheButthurts ever contribute to anything other than pure edginess for the sake of edginess and contrarianism? :D

    I'm starting to doubt that he even likes cRPGs, let alone plays any of them. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    More like $45 - there's 10425 backers and $470K from backers. (For comparison, Bard's Tale IV got $700K from backers in its first day, if Kicktraq is to be believed.)

    The rest of the money is $1.7M from investors, most of which was already there before the campaign even launched. I'm assuming investors aren't included in the "backers" count that Fig gives. Even if they were, they would be a drop in the bucket so wouldn't affect the $45 average much.
