My point is, no matter how much you pay, if you buy a game with DRM you are supporting and encouraging the use of DRM. I don’t mean that to be accusatory, but I feel that if a consumer strongly opposes something then he/she can speak with his/her wallet.

But if you aren’t strongly opposed to DRM, rather see it as an inconvenience, then this wouldn’t apply to you.

The better message is to request DRM-free or otherwise not buy the product. I’ve missed some good games due to DRM, but I’ve also saved some cash!

Well, with 32 hours to go, it looks like DFA is going to be unseated as most successful game funded on Kickstarter (though not in terms of number of backers). I guess it had to happen someday, and I’d be hard-pressed to think of someone more deserving than the Obsidian guys.

Agreed.

Hope they reach the big second city goal. But I think they will have no problem surpassing it with the momentum they have today.

I’m still contemplating whether or not to kickstart the project or just wait for it to go on sale sometime in the future. Hmm, it really does look awesome, but I’m not even sure my pc could handle it!

And it’s on. Close to was on since they’re funded in a few minutes. That’s $900k within a day!

EDIT: I’m driveling. Obviously it’s on for weeks from today, even though it’s already funded…

WoW, i hope some form of Voice acting is included though considering amount of
script and nature of RPG, fans would not want it. Anyways,Planescape was indeed one of the most creative gaming literary works of its time.

KickStarter FTW!

The first half of that pitch video made me want to punch Brian Fargo in the face very hard. The second half, on the other hand, made the game sound very, very interesting.

Thier other project was nearly as fast. It took 43 hours for Wasteland 2 to be funded and it ended up just under $3million.

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

Is this because of the name “Torment”, or only because of the team’s fame (with Fallout 1 & 2, PS:T, Wasteland 1 & 2, etc.). Because I’d like to believe that PS:T is far more popular and loved than its sales numbers gave it credit for…

Yeah with time it gained much popularity, i believe it all factors you mentioned
combined, and that they have been marketing the campaign properly, the pitch
itself is amazing, the figure, art, music, team and the story they put sounds
very promising infact most promising. The faith built up by Wasteland2 progress/video
helped a bit too i guess.

BTW, those 1 million achieved much faster than any kickstarter yet.
