61,290 backers pledged $2,933,252 to help bring this project to life.

And it begins...

We did it!  Thanks to each and every one of you, we have completed our incredibly successful Kickstarter campaign.  It has been an amazing ride and one of the most memorable achievements I’ve ever had.  Being able to interact with you all on such a personal level has been amazing.  I can’t imagine going back to making games any other way.  With Double Fine’s success, the world was watching to see if that was an anomaly or if this fan-funded approach could be a viable means of changing the world of video games.  Together, we’ve proved that fan-funding is here to stay and we can’t wait to see where you take it next.  We are fully committed to doing whatever we can to keep this movement alive and strong. 

Before we move on to what’s next, some quick housekeeping:  We’ve received messages from some backers saying there were issues when Amazon tried to apply the payment.  Kickstarter said they would contact you if this was the case.  You can also check to make sure it worked correctly by logging into Kickstarter.  They give 7 days to correct your payments, so please check it soon.  After that grace-period, your pledge and reward is cancelled, and nobody wants that to happen! 

Now on to the fun stuff… If your tier contained any rewards where we need to gather your information fo use in the game, we will soon be doing so through Kickstarter.  Keep on the lookout for this notification.  There is no need to update your shipping address yet as we will collect it when we get closer to the release of the game next year. 

We have opened up a store at  We currently have the digital copy available for $20, and we will leave that preorder up during production.  If you have friends that missed out on the Kickstarter but still want a copy of the game, they can go there and still get it cheaper than after it is released. Also, if you forgot to add $15 for international shipping on physical rewards, we have added a PayPal option to do so in the store.  In the near future, we will open a backer-only store with some great exclusive items that won’t be available to the general public.

So, now we get started on the game!  We are in full production mode for the next 18 months.  Expect to see many updates as we start to shape the experience that you’ve helped create.  If you want to stay in the loop in between our Kickstarter updates, head to our blog and forums at  We will be spending a lot of time interacting with all of you there.

      Gratz on getting the funding needed :) Tbh I have zero idea about Wasteland 1, but if any game is responsible for the original Fallout, that's certainly getting my money :)

      Good luck with production!
