The grassroots initiative to generate a sequel to old-school CRPG Wasteland wrapped up last night by getting more than triple the amount that InXile Entertainment was asking for. In addition to the $US2,933,147 raised on Kickstarter, $US108,803 has donated through PayPal.

Passing $US3 million means that a mod kit will be made available for the in-development RPG, meaning that players of the post-apocalyptic game will be able to graft their own inventions onto the release. So, money’s coming in and development is surely happening. All that’s left is the waiting, right?

Wasteland 2 [Kickstarter]


  • Can proudly say I donated $265 towards the cause. Now we have to wait over a year til it’s released. It’s going to be a long wait 🙁

  • Well I could only afford to chip in 15 bucks but I can say I’m glad to have helped.

    Now we just have to hope that it doesn’t turn out shit eh?

  • made money? sounds tad cynical.
    perhaps i’m reading the heading wrong, but the T&Cs mean that the $3M isnt profit. Its $3M that a lot of people invested, of sorts, into seeing a glorious memory brought back to life.
