You've all earned out support
Seriously, this is like a big slap in the face to the greedy mainstream publishers out there who, for years, had been rejecting RPGs of this style, or even any kind of good faith in interactive arts. Go inXile, show the world the true art of video games.
That's simply amazing. I'm sure you've shattered any Kickstarter funding speed record. You'll probably make Project Eternity's $1.1m goal in 8 hours or less, and it took Obsidian 24 hours to reach that goal. The final sum would be phenomenal.
Only worry is that you might end up running out of rewards on multiple reward levels, which would leave only the lower end tiers for backing or the very high end ones (which are filling more slowly).

Yay, RPGs arent dead yet!
Congrats on funding!
I am a gamer that played Gold Box DnD, Bard's Tale, Infinity Engine, Aurora Engine, and all the one offs. I'm a gamer whose demographic has changed as I've grown older. I may have less time for games, but I still long for the same imaginative games I first played on my C64. The mainstream seems to always conentrate on one demographic where each generation enters with new tastes in gaming. But the people who like games like Torment fall off the radar. We are still here though, and we have or middle-aged incomes, and our weekends, and our desire for escapism.
@inXile Team - I would rather say thanks to you guys. You are actually listening to your fan-base and trying to create games that we want to purchase. Congrats...
So, I heard about this on Geek&Sundry yesterday. Time to talk to Pat on those stretch goals? Looks like you'll be breaking the million mark pretty soon.
Lovely and truely deserving it all. Congratulations.:). I love you all for carrying out this great dream.
Love you guys! Thanks for bringing back a major piece of my childhood and a successor to THE best story driven RPG ever :)
I would hug you guys if I could.
Is it December 2014 yet?
Found out about this awesome project via The Story Board put on by Geek & Sundry. Waiting for the stretch goal for Pat to do some writing for the game. ;) lol. I am looking forward to this game and as always am a fan of pre-release demos... food for thought. ;)
Good luck with the dev, it will be a pleasure to follow it!
Brian, I wanna thank you for the many many hours and countless sleepless night's your games offered me so far, and I hope that these next games will provide the same for me again. If I had more cash I'd get the 10000 dollar pledge immediately.
Thanks from a huge fan !!!
@Brian Fargo you have to know, every one of us loves you man. You are making games in a genre that has been dead for years and the thing is? This is many of ours favorite genre.
If you keep making these games you can bet myself and others will keep on funding you.
I had been burned out on Kickstarter. Then I saw the word Torment, and I knew my wallet was in trouble. Add to the fact that I foolishly passed on Wasteland 2 the first time, and the $45 tier was the perfect solution.
I look forward to seeing this game come to life.
Five hours right? Not six.
Congrats everyone! We are getting a great game!
Out of all of my friends, I am the only one who has heard of Planescape: Torment, played Planescape: Torment or beaten Planescape: Torment, and that is extremely disheartening because this is my favorite game of all time.
I just wanted to thank all of you who funded this game, it is incredible to know that while the community who loved Planescape: Torment is maybe not the biggest, is has definitely shown itself to be one of the most dedicated and enthusiastic.
Congrats inXile, I cannot express how excited I am for this game!
Proud to help you out and will continue to do so every time you have a project Mr. Fargo.
PS. Start training up some young uns to take the helm and grow with this.
You guys are making awesome games! Glad there are enough of us out there to support them!
Just to chime in that $95 went too fast, could not wake up at PST 6AM to claim that one :( (PST, what an uncannily familiar acronym).
Could you guys consider creating another phys. tier between $110 and $250 - for instance, throwing in a digital copy of Numenera for some reasonable price? Pricingwise, I right now am better off preordering a hard copy from the Numenera website and buying in to your $110 tier.
No thank you!
You had us at "Torment".
Brian, games haven't been going the way us old school gamers have wanted in years. Your version of customer development is pure, put it out there and if they come, then do it. Marketers are good, consumers are better. Phase I accomplished, fair winds inXile.
Watching this Kickstarter get another 10k every 5 minutes is honestly making my day. I can't wait to play this.
Don't thank us, thank you for making these great games!
This is amazing, congrats and good luck.
Brian Fargo, so old school he doesn't even know that it's "micro-transaction" and, with good reason, does not care. You guys are amazing. :') <3 Brian
do not "thanks", just do it - we love you
Anytime, Mr. Fargo. Congratulations on achieving a new kickstarter record. :)
Congratulations InXile;sorry for my bad english,i from Belgium.
back in the days , there was Arcanum,Fallout,Planetscape and few others,and after a long road of tasteless games,finally you give us hope for better days in video games.
You rocks guys
Renews my faith in gaming to see the best going back to what made me love video games. In a sea of mass marketed games with little depth I hope you'll continue to be massively successful and show them what real gaming is. Thank YOU for the courage to make great games and even throwing down on the bill.
Oh yeah! :-D
im about to give up my $95
Keep the good work going guys!
And a BIG thanks for making the games i love! I can already see me playing hours by hours..... hope my wife will understand that ;)
Wow great that as the fastest done deal I saw on Kickstarter, not that it is fact as far I know (I know only that I spend 110$ on it) :D. I'm very happy storytelling, single player and cRPG are still (or again) favored by Gamers! (by Gamers for Gamers, not forgotten, never will!). Congratulations and good luck for the rest of the campaign! (let's kick it to 3+mil).
I have a question: I know one of the key members of the old team was Guido Henkel (a German game designer). I don't know what happened untill the end of PT, but he left before the game was delivered (his face was the blueprint of the PC and the picture on the box cover). Is there any chance or interest in getting him involved in any level for this new Torment like project?
Woo hoo! Congrats! Tell Morte I miss him!
If ever there was a project that deserved to be funded this quickly, it was this one. :)
Wow, is that like the fastest kickstarter to hit a million? It's still 20,000 away right now, but by the time I finish writing this it'll probably be there.
I play games mostly because i enjoy stories and characters. Really. And Planescape Torment simply had one of the best set of story and characters ever, therefore i pledged five seconds after i read "spiritual successor" of PT!
I'm so excited to see these games succeeding so overwhelmingly! It's great to know that others like me have been waiting for years for the games we love to become a reality again. Knowing that our favorite developers out there have been wanting it too brings me great happiness. Keep the projects coming, you have our full faith and backing!
OMG, he did it again! Brain Fargo just set yet another record in Kickstarter funding. He did it last near with nearly 3 million, and now nearly a million in a mere 6 hours?!? Holy cow!!
And don't worry about stretch goals, just make us an awesome game! :D
@Itai, that's my quote of the day! :)
All of the gamers who were playing PS:T, Baldur's Gate, Ultima 7 and the TBS stuff as well...we're still here. It's nice to see the creative folks get a chance to make the games we want rather than the games dictated to us by the corporate dew generation machine that sees less than 5M units as a failure.
Looking forward to this New Generation of games; Torment and Project Eternity are the future of PC gaming, I think.
