I am happy to see larger game developers getting into fan-funded projects. inXile Entertainment is funding Wasteland 2 through kickstarter.com. Their goal was $900,000. As of this writing they have received pledges for over $1.4 million. If they reach $1.5 million they will make Wasteland 2 for the Mac OS and Linux as well.
For those who don’t know, Wasteland is the 1980’s predecessor of Fallout 1 & 2. For as little as $15 you can support this game and receive a digital copy when it comes out. Go to the Wasteland 2 project page on Kickstarter to pledge now. Pledging will continue through April 17, 2012 at 8:05 AM EDT. For more information on Wasteland 2, go to inXile’s Wasteland 2 website.
If this trend can continue, maybe PC gamers can finally get the games they want to play instead of the 50th installment of last year’s shooter!
