    I donated 50$ to the codex one instead to pledge money on the Kickstarter page.. Much better this way since I don't have to use a credit card, we might get the Codex Troll statue and I don't really need all this bonus stuff that comes with the kickstarter pledging.

    I wanted to pledge more initially, but I decided to wait for it a bit, since we actually don't know anything about the game yet, no screenshots, no video, no knowledge how the game will eventually be. Don't get me wrong, I am excited aswell, but I don't have the money to throw around for stuff like this when I don't even know in what exactly I am investing in - buying a cat in the bag. ;)

    I woke up and 503k, who said it will slow down?

    but the best thing imagine that in that way we will have wasteland 3 in the future easily. Ofc they have to make 2 but finally we will have what we want

    Oh man, I knew it would be higher by the time I'd wake up but I didn't expect it to be half there already! Good, good. :)

    It's going to make target, there's no doubt about that. By Friday evening, I will be shocked if it hasn't busted $1.25 million. Usual payday for Americans means $$$ for this for inXile.

    This has been a fantastic day. Wasteland 2 will fucking rock. Now I want to know more. I want concept art and details. This game will actually give us the old school experience that we have been begging for. Who predicted this would happen? Kickstarter is officially the best fucking idea ever. Will we see more isometric RPG's in the future? What about Planescape? Maybe a new title? The possibilities are endless. InXile are rocking out with their cocks out on this one. That's a good thing in case you are wondering. Fargo, you are the man. Do more shit like this and you will have people worshiping you. Actually, I think that is already the case. Who wants to start a Brian Fargo cult?

    :notworthy:

    Just adblock avatars of Per and these other 2 guys leaving only Ausir's.

    As for the 500k, I must say I'm pleasantly surprised. But we still need to spread the word further so that it won't slow down. It's also sad that quite a lot of money comes from other developers who probably experienced what Brain Fargo experienced when dealing with publishers such as Bethesda (otherwise we might have gotten something much better than Fallout:NV), instead of gamers.

    Oh, and I suggest we contact Bill Gates, Google, Apple owners etc. and ask them to throw 15 $ at least. That's like 0.00000001 $ for average guy. ;P

    And of course I am very happy they decided to supply a digital version for the $50 tier. Except now I am considering the $100 tier, so yeah.

    Pledged. I'm really happy with the progress made so far. I hope they will gather more money than the required goal so we can have more features and translations and all in all a better game.

    It certainly will, sooner or later. DF raised one million the first day and "only" two millions in the remaining 33 days.

    When was the last time so many people commented on NMA?

    Also, someone uploaded the video on youtube (so be sure to +1 it and add to favourites):
