    that wasn't posted when I typed my post, plus:
    There is no such feature on the account upgrade form.

    Not saying it would be bad, just those who expect another Fallout would be dissapointed.

    RPG Codex should be a bunch of crazies with Rocket Propelled Grenades.

    Can we get a running tally of the Codex pledged amount in the first post? If it's close to getting the statue-level then I'll chip in -- otherwise I'll just go solo for my own loots!

    The only thing the "haters" said was that it wasn't going to get more donations than Schafer's adventure game.

    300000$ :salute:
    I expect at least 450k$ when I wake up tomorrow morning.

    Also: Suggestion for a Codex location:
    Basement of an amusement park at the edge of the Great Fault (broken codex troll would be at the entrance). It's filled with degenerate muties that consider themselves the original Vault Dwellers. Other NPCs refer to them as basement dwellers.

    Didn't Fargo originally want 2 mil? I don't think it'll have trouble hitting 900,000, but it's not gonna have the meteoric rise Double Fine got. Fargo and InXile just don't have the same cachet as Tim Schafer, Ron Gilbert, and Double Fine.

    Anyone know how the Wasteland 2 pitch ranks in terms of amount of $'s requested?

    Message to the reader of this thread in year 2022:

    First of all, congratulations on being privileged enough to gain access to remnants of ArpaNET.

    Isn't it funny how the Codex has shifted from being a site about games, a luxury barely remembered, to more of a Craigslist for potato giveaways in low-rad areas?

    Doesn't it all seem so rose-tinted and careless now, the giddy excitement for a game that was meant to portray what is now a cruel reality?

    You must go now, stranger. The ArpaNET archive is a fascinating place, a faint reminder of what used to be - but nothing new ever happens here. Save the electricity. No power - no air filtering - no vault.

    Shut it off now and get some sleep. Sink into the dreams of a better world you just saw. Rest. You must be alert when the rats come.

    Indeed. This is what I said. I'm definitely not a "hater" and I still believe this will fall short of Double Fine's $3,000,000. Having said that, I don't see this as a problem as it's budgeted at $1,000,000, which I think it'll achieve.

    They should have started it after DoubleFine pledge was over, cause it seems that they got +200.000$ in the last hours. And at least a part of that money could have gone to Fargo.
    But this also means that there will probably be a donation rush before the end of this pledge. If it happened for DoubleFine, it will probably happen for Wasteland too.

    Also there still are 9 positions open for pledges over 5000$.

    Just donated $20 for that statue or whatever it is in the end, I want a bit of the Codex in the game.

    On the contrary, it's a good idea to have many eyes looking at Kickstarter at the moment you start your own project. When somebody arrives to donate or upgrade their pledge to DF at the last minute, they'll notice Wasteland 2.

    As if people who enjoy Fallout 1 & 2 care primarily about power-armors, the specific role-playing engine or shooting body parts.

    If it has an immersive world, good writing, some choice & consequence and fun, tactical combat, people will be perfectly happy.

    Just spend some of my superior euro-dollars for that statue thingie. Codex doing its own mini-crowd-funding to support some old-school RPG gaming is pretty cool.
