Just a quick update:
The Wasteland 2 Kickstarter Page is now live!
Looks like the pledges are rapidly increasing (was just announced on Twitter 30 minutes ago) and I can't wait to see what happens here. Most professionals and members of the media believe that the sudden success of Double Fine was a one-trick pony and they claim that no other game could ever receive the same amount of funding. (I don't think Kickstarter will be as successful with newer titles from unknown developers, but definitely nostalgic titles since they're targeting 30-40 somethings with disposable income, and they will be promoted by well-known names in the industry. Won't last forever though, the first group of Kickstarter games will get the most funding, before this mostly unknown service gets completely saturated years from now.)
When I first went to the page a few moments ago, it was sitting at 500 backers with $37,648 pledged of $900k.
I'll update the Wasteland 2 sticky when I get a chance. I want to check out the Kickstarter project first and make a pledge.
