    Well, the name BIS and the bizarreness of this situation gets them a lot of press coverage, while "yet another Kickstarter from an individual developer that I don't really remember" doesn't turn the head of the young gaming journos. Labels are sometimes more powerful than the people behind those labels, for the less-informed gaming journalists.

    Even so, I don't know what any of these guys are thinking riding this sinking ship. Maybe Herve is just that charming?

    I hope they succeed & there comes a good game out of this. But due to how this is handled, I will not be contributing at this point.

    Also, I have to admit I chuckled at the "I can say 'fuck' but I can't say '<bleep>'?" part. :P

    Mindbogglingly bizzare.
    Caen must be holding their families hostage or something. Otherwise I cannot see how they could agree to something like this.

    :shock:

    Eric Caen (number 6 on the heros board last I checked) should have put his $75 into Interplay shares instead.... At least then he'd have 7500 actual somethings...

    When does the Superman 64 2 kickstart-kickstarter start?

    This is such an obvious money grab from start to finish. Using the name of ProjectV13 (even if it has nothing to do with Fallout and the now dead MMO), "resurrecting" Black Isle (or rather reanimating the dead, necromancy style), no refunds and NO obligation to provide the actual game.

    As Brother None stated, $2023 is $2023 too much. Herve needs some new parts for his yacht/boat I guess.

    Complete ripoff. We already have wasteland 2, obsidians project infinity, shadowrun, age of decadence... we should be fine with these promising rpgs, wonder why they even try with this given how shallow their idea seems to be, even basic gameplay elements not even mentioned etc...

    This is a con. End of. Brian Fargo must be shaking his head at the blatent attempt to use his wave and surf to gaming sellage glory. THEY DONT EVEN HAVE A SURFBOARD.


    EDIT: Yup he was.

    @BrianFargo What are your feelings about this, Brian? Undoubtedly it's an awkward move...

    @DeyceK awkward would be an understatement.

    I'm curious how this will all play out. Maybe Herve can hire on the team that made The WarZ and they can make the ultimate flipper baby.

    You realise you've gotten as much game now as thta $100 is ever going to get you... Even if the campaign is successful they'll be hitting you up for even more cash to take the "prototype" to product stage.

    [spoiler:f5755a19c3] OFC I did not really donate shit. And If I had it I would donate to Toront fund of moving forward 10 times before this joke of a campaign [/spoiler:f5755a19c3]
