Funded! This project was successfully funded on April 17, 2012.

Update #14

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 http://wasteland.inxile-entertainment.com/store.  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 http://wasteland.inxile-entertainment.com/.  We will be spending a lot of time interacting with all of you there.

      No, they don't mean paid through paypal. They mean donated through paypal, skipping kickstarter entirely.

      My support was paid through PayPal and it shows that I'm a supporter when I log into this site.
      So, I believe the PayPal support is already counted unfortunately.

      I noticed we didn't quite make it to the $3 million mark for the mod kit. If I recall correctly, Mr. Fargo was planning on chipping in a little bit himself to help make this happen. Any chance of overlooking that last $67G to help make that happen?

      @cosurgi
      The project had to be $600,000 over initial goal for the team to promise OS X and Linux support, and to pull that off, they really just need to code OS specific main executables for the program. The iPad would also require radical adjustments to the interface and many of the resources for the program would require adaptation. But, wouldn't that be cool?! InXile proved they are iOS savvy with their excellent "Fantastic Contraption" and their upgraded port of 2004's "The Bard's Tale".

      Hi,
      I LOVE fallout 1.2 and 2 ! This game is the only reason for which I taught myself the english language :-) When I heard that you are going to make a new version I was so happy.

      Now I have a serious question. Guys, since you have so much money, are you going to make a version which will work on the New IPAD ?

      thanks!

      Karl Zylinski: Yeah, I like Fallout: New Vegas' style of DLC. All three were huge epic quests that were well worth the money. Old World Blues is probably the funniest thing I have played in quite awhile.

      Creator Benoît Bazin on April 19, 2012

      If you say right, I did misunderstand. I thought it was in-game items.

    10. Lax.small

      Creator Karl Zylinski on April 18, 2012

      Liam: Someone just misundestood what "items in shop" meant, he thought it meant mini-DLCs when it meant like physical t-shirts and other stuff.

      By the way: DLC is a retarded acronym that means a heck load of things. Once upon a time there was a word known as "expansion". Expansions added large chunks of new content, it could often be as large as 1/3 of the original game. When DLC actually means those kinds of expansions, it's really cool.

    11. Missing_small

      Creator Liam Kinney on April 18, 2012

      Why are you people already talking about DLC? they haven't made the game yet! and remember they're not being published by EA

    12. Missing_small

      Creator Ben Lucas on April 18, 2012

      I'm assuming they mean t-shirts and what not :P

      Not DLC

    13. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Nein Eins on April 18, 2012

      I never had a problem with DLC when it actually added something new and cool to the game. By actually adding new content and increasing play time.

      Cosmetic DLC items that are 5$ buck for 6 new guns or horse armor? No, thanks!

      New areas and adventures? Yes, please!

      So boo hoo if hey decide to make DLC for the game, you don't have to buy it if you don't like it. Also, inXile hasn't said anything about making DLC for the game. I'm pretty sure they're just focused on making the game right now.

    14. Lax.small

      Creator Karl Zylinski on April 18, 2012

      Benoit: I'm pretty sure they mean physical goods, like buying t-shirts and such items in order to continue supporting inXile.

      So the game will include DLCs ? Bad new.

      I had some problems with payment at first. The banks here in Sweden have a software that allows us to create "digital" VISA-cards for internet-payments. That did not work for me, but when I switched to my real VISA there were no problems.

      MY most anticipated games for next year:
      Wasteland 2, Leisure Suit Larry & The Dead Linger.
      ALL Kickstarter projects, nothing from the "Big name publishers" even interests me anymore except the fallout series. Brian was right to come here for his game instead of giving up on it.
      Check them out guys! (Obviously you already know about Wasteland 2 if you are here).

      Issue with payments from CIS (СНГ in cyrillic) depends on bank. I used 2 different banks with Amazon and PayPal without any problems. With billing address in Russia.
      For backers living in CIS I can recomend to try another bank. As a variant you can try instant issue cards or virtual cards. In Russia you can try to use Qiwi Bank.

      For Russian-speaking folks:
      Проблемы с платежами из СНГ зависят от банка. Я использовал карты двух банков при работе с Amazon и PayPal безо всяких проблем. С российским billing-адресом. Для тех, кто живет в СНГ могу порекомендовать попробовать другой банк. Как вариант -- использовать instant issue карты или виртуальные карты. В России можно попробовать Qiwi Bank.
