      If anyone happens to like Survival Horror games: [url=https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2129301589/grave-open-world-survival-horror]Grave, by Broken Window Studios[/url] might fill that niche.

      It's only got 9 days left though, and they're a bit from their goal. Still, it's a good game, and I am hoping to see this reach full funding.

      @Trister - Lack of sleep, lack or coffee and being in a time zone that put that email on April 2nd was enough to catch me off guard for a few seconds of head scratching before it sunk in. I had a good laugh.

      actually, i wish that's what the dev/pub relationship was like most of the time. alas, if you put up the amounts of money pubs do they're obviously going to want control. sad days.

    18. 230px-paulatreides%20copy.small

      Creator Trister - OO's Tormented Master Wetboy on March 28

      that gets no control over anything, and handles only the side of things that obsidian isn't equipped to handle at all. personally don't see how it can be taken as a jab, since it means they use the money more efficiently than if they were doing shipping labels and packing boxes themselves.

      A KS launched last week for a game called Zaharia. It's an isometric cRPG set in a Middle Eastern style fantasy world. They have a short playable prototype that you can DL. Seems really promising and I think a lot of fans of old school CRPGs would like it.

      Games need to come out sometime so they can make money so the people at Obsidian can live and continue to make games.

      because they have to put in an estimate before they even know what the budget is going to be. so the estimate, and that's all it is, is for the bare minimum budget that they're asking for. with a quadruple times budget the production time is obviously going to take longer, and the original estimate is going to be wrong. simple as that.

      Creator Anaeme on February 9

      Delivering games on time is a big deal as far as I am concerned. Developers need to meet the promises they make...particularly on Kickstarter where trust is the currency of success.

      Tell people what you know you can achieve. I do not know why fans are not holding developers accountable on this score

      Not to mention Obsidian is known for taking a long long time to make games. Don't get me wrong they are a company that I admire greatly and really have loved quite a few of their games, but they are notorious for taking a long time to put out a finished game.

    46. Missing_small

      Creator Ryan Westberg on February 8

      Most of these companies are vastly overrating how fast they can deliver these games. We will be lucky to see this game in a fully finished form by early 2015 period. Also in some cases that extra money can be more of a curse than a blessing, It means more time spent developing new content.

      Based on my completely uninformed guess, I'd say January 2015.
