Brian Fargo and inXile Entertainment have just 24 hours to go before getting to celebrate the official green light of Wasteland 2, thanks to the huge contributions from Kickstarter.
Over 56k backers have pledged over $2.6 million, clearing the original goal of $900k by a landslide. Just 24 hours remain to back a pledge. A "live streaming party" will be held today.
In the latest blog update to the Wasteland 2 project, Fargo says he's "very anxious to start diverting all of my energies to production of the game itself." As are the fans, Mr. Fargo.
"We have less than 40 hours before our Kickstarter campaign ends, and what an incredible last month it has been," blogged the much elated Wasteland creator. "I am constantly asked about other projects I might consider, but for now it is Wasteland, Wasteland, Wasteland."
They've also 'upgraded' the reward for those pledging $30 by dangling an extra digital copy for those who qualify, access to a "collection of exclusive Ranger portraits" and a "four-episode Video Development Blog" that takes you behind-the-scenes on the project. These new goodies are available if you pledge $30 or more.
"Also we will have a live streaming party on Monday night (16th) from 10pm-12am EDT to celebrate the green light of production on the game. Our Kickstarter does not close until 5am the next morning, but we wanted to get some of our friends and family together to celebrate this little bit of history and share it with you," continued Fargo.
"On attendance will be Nolan Bushnell the founder of Atari, Chris Avellone and a few other surprise guests. We will be answering questions received through live chat on the TwitchTV stream as well as from Facebook fans. I will tweet the URL Monday afternoon as well as post it here on Kickstarter."
Let's hope not too much of that mouth watering $2,667,774 gets blown on beer runs for the party. It's not too late if you want to pledge some cash for Brian Fargo's - just 24 hours remain. Watch a Q&A below.
