Haha, the opening of that video is hilarious.

Just a heads up, there are only about 1,200 $20 pledges left, after that it goes up to $25.

I just watched it. I liked the return of Metric Driven Games and I gotta say, the cowboy boots just made the video complete.

Activision and EA couldn't even pay their janitors with $456K, I don't think they care.

They'll accept your finger when this hits $50million.

If this doesn't excite an old rpg stalwart, I might as well turn in my gaming badge for good.

And the goal has been reached. There will probably be an update coming soon and I'll post that once it appears there.

Updated our Journal...
Update #1 · Mar. 06, 2013 · 192 comments

You've got to be freaking kidding me!! We just funded in six hours!?!?!

Our heads are still spinning at the incredible response we have had from today's support of our Kickstarter campaign. We had plans to roll out our stretch goals and to write our Kickstarter updates but never in our wildest dreams did we think we would fund this quickly!!! We are joyfully scrambling right now to get a longer update and some stretch goals in front of you as soon as we can. We should have more to say later today.

You are all unbelievably awesome and we could not be happier about receiving your trust in us. For many years we have wanted to get back to making this style of RPG but it appeared that the market was going everywhere but that direction. Almost every article and new game was focused on being an MMO, multi-player or micro-transition based. This wasn't our style and we couldn't generate interest in the classical narrative type of RPG that we all grew up making and playing. Thank you for backing our vision once again and we will not let you down. We will continue to communicate and and make sure we solicit input such that the game is hitting all the right notes.

Our goal is to make great RPGs for you all for the rest of our careers.

Thank you,

Brian Fargo and the team at inXile

If I hadn't have backed Project Eternity and a few others, I would've jumped on it. Good luck to the devs though!

Not surprised at all. Planescape has to be one of the games I've always heard people clamoring for a sequel. That and Dungeon Keeper are the big two, so I'm not the least bit surprised they funded so fast.

Yeah I wasn't quite feeling it for PE, will wait until it comes out, but Numenera's description and aims caught enough of my interest.

But third times the charm and I won't support anymore until I see some returns.

O_O

That is all.

I am wicked excited for Eternity. I did that one at the last minute (technically the last four minutes) at the $65 tier for physical stuff.

I decided to just give this one $20.

Fastest KS for a game?

It might be, however I have my doubts. Ouya might have it beat if you want to count that.

That's fantastic. If even just a few of these Kickstarters turn out great, we all owe Tim Schafer a great debt of gratitude.

What I've seen of the ones I've donated to look stellar. I'm particularly impressed with Wasteland 2 at the moment. I can't say I'm too surprised since pretty much all of the ones I've donated to have been the creators of games that I've loved in the past.

I was a bit selective and have only backed a couple. They're both looking really great so far.

Have you tried the MP beta for The Banner Saga?

No, I need to give it a go sometime. I mostly just hate the idea of hopping straight into multiplayer without knowing much of anything about the systems (even though it's supposed to match you with other noobs). Wish they had a sort of skirmish mode to try first, but I imagine they haven't built out the AI yet.

Edit: Also, it's out of beta now! :D

When does the Banner Saga release? The main game, I mean.
