    It looks great and it's very nice to see a new game using older edition rulesets! PoE, Pathfinder, Tyranny and Realms Beyond have ushered a new era of RPG games. It would be so awesome to see a very similar new MMORPG.

    Whatever the Early Bird was.   I can always change my mind over the next few weeks once I look further into it

    nice read on interactive objects in the game World...

    Almost there and one week to go.  I really hope this gets funded.  They are leaving out a lot I want, and changing a lot I would rather they didn't, but this looks like it could be a real gem.

    I wonder what the break even number is for sold copies for a real ROI. These games are not big sellers. POE 2 Deadfire only sold somewhere around 110k copies and it has a name. I wish them well though. 
    The few fans remaining today for these kinds of games are dwindling :/

    Pathfinder sold a ton, all while having the buggiest release I have ever seen.

    DOS 1 and 2 are TB, like this game, and also sold a ton.  I bought and enjoyed PoE 1 and 2, but I don't see them as being in the same category of games as this game.  

    For Crpgs in general, there are big success stories and big flops.  Most of them seem to have had a decent ROI.  For Obsidian you have two successes and one flop, but Tim Caine hasn't released info on his game for them yet either.

    InXile is a mixed bag, hopefully WL3 will do well.  I really enjoyed all three games they have come out with, but only one seems to have done well out of the three so far.

    Pathfinder gives me hope in that it was mechanically meaty, even if in my opinion the combat was sophomoric, it was still a great game.  And if the buggiest game ever released can be a success due to the strength of it's meaty systems and mechanics, I think there is a lot more hope.  Encased was funded, this looks like its going to be funded too.  Maybe Seven Dragon Saga should try again now that the modern audience is finding its footing and taste.

    One thing to keep in mind now though is that both InXile and Obsidian are now owned by Microsoft ;)

    Dang, blueturtle13.  Microsoft just today announced it's intent to acquire Obsidian Entertainment.  You're on top of it!

    Well on the numbers question and idk if things have changed the last 10 years but likely,anyhow it was typical that a publisher took 25%+ for a bare bones publish and then +++ for more.
    So if using that example of 110k sales,you can dwindle that down to around 70k and maybe less.

    However the size of team..overhead to make these is far smaller than a quality rpg.The engines also look more like the rpg maker engines,so yeah there is a small budget making these.
    Could i muster a number,,pretty tough but on a whim 1 year serious full team production of maybe 20 people.So around 1-2 million cost?They sold these games way over priced,they were imo 15 dollar games but old like 60 bucks or something.60x110k is a LOT of money,around 6... million for a 1-2 million effort,maybe less.So they could profit 3-4 million QUICKLY and then EASILY use that to make an even cheaper expansion of maybe a team of 15 and maybe slightly less than a year.

    Maybe not Blizzard rich,but a nice tidy sum,however if they had investors,they might be eating KD more often than not.

    I got in at the 20 dollar/pound/euro/shilling/pence whatever it is level.

    I'm really liking the retro-rpg boom lately.

    I saw your plea. You're welcome. :mrgreen:



    Not sure if it will be for me (3.5ed style rules sets are about my least favorite), but I do like people working on this style of RPG. I think the future of these games is with bigger publishers though. They don't seem to be big on the return for the cost and effort to produce them.

    I think that's why inXile and Obsidian got snapped up by Microsoft before reality could do the same.

    Okay, so what level should I pledge at?  I don't usually do boxed copies anymore, but I'm tempted for this one.
