    I'm honestly too excited about this, it's slightly embarrassing. Yesterday watching the cash pile up I felt like a kid on Christmas eve. So far I've put in $115 in three goes but I will probably also try and find some money for the Codex fund, because that would just be glorious and so very fitting.

    Hoping to see this at $800k before bedtime. CARRY ON YE LEGIONS OF THE OLD SCHOOL

    I don't know. The talking heads are nice but when I think back on those games it's not what I remember. I’d rather money be spent elsewhere.

    Like on a tool kit. I started a thread about this over there that you all should go comment in.

    It's very smart of them to announce a Linux version at $1.5 million. Judging by the "Humble Indie Bundles" that go on sale, Linux users donated on average more than double what Windows users donated. I think they're just happy to get games released that support Linux.

    I wonder if that means they've made a decision on an engine to use.

    I'm glad that at $1.5 million they'll be making a Mac version too. Would be much better than having to play it on Bootcamp.

    Hope they go for Unity or something similar. Relatively cheap, very usable, easy to port to other systems and so on.
    Also saw this baby over there http://unigine.com/products/unigine/
    Looks nice and diverse and the basic price is 30K only.

    If nothing else they can always go for new Torque from Iron Towers. :D

    $3990 secured so far. I'm sure you'll keep it coming...

    Oh and did I mention we got a $600 donation?

    Yeah, they can't really announce a toolset when they don't know what engine they're going to use yet.

    I wonder how much jewgold would the codex put in the pot for an Obsidian's Kickstarter if one of the rewards was a romantic dinner with MCA. I would vote for SMA as our envoy.

    Only one lucky & rich bastard would win...now, if MCA asked for 100,000 for one hour of livecast Q&A with the Codex, we would fund that in like 3 minutes. :lol:

    Yeah but we can keep talking about it here and over at their forums or wherever. It could minimally help influence which engine they go with.
