    I just pledged $30.

    They are only 130,000 right now. I think they need at least One million in 30 days.

    This is a video Fargo made about trying to get funding to get the game made.

    At this point how do you think this will be differentiated from the fallout series?

    It's going to be based on what fallout was built off of. It's also going to be more strategy oriented.

    Razer, the company that makes pc game accessories donated ten grand.

    In some ways it will be a lot like Fallout 1 and 2. In game play it will be a top down isometric game, turn based. You will have a party or squad instead of a single follower like in the Fallout games. In combat I'm guessing it will play out sort of like the original XCOM games. It's going to be a sandboxed open world with Moral consequences for your actions, like Fallout. This will be an old school RPG without Cut Scenes or Hack and slash game play. It should run on very low powered computers. I'm guessing it will be an easy port to Hand-Held devices like Android Phones and Tablets. This is a very niche game and it won't be for 90 percent of the gamer's out there, even old school ones. This is being made for the PC, so other platforms are an unknown for the moment.


    $750K and climbing!

    $1,019,755 It's all gravy now. More content and bigger voice acting budget.
    ..
    Now we have to wait. They are looking at a release date of possibly October 2013.

    Only about $200,000 yesterday so it's slowed down since it hit the Million mark. They have 30 more days to go, but I'm betting it doesn't reach 2 million. They need 1.5 to get a Linux and Mac version.

    $1,569,031 with 22 days left.

    They now have a budget for IOS/Mac, and Linux computers and Devices. Also, more game content. At the rate it has slowed down, they will be lucky to make another 100,000.

    They're getting the band back together!

    They are at $1,824,165 with 16 days to go, so the $2.1 million isn't that far off. I didn't think it would get past $1.7.
