So. Original Sin has a week to go, and it seems to be struggling to reach its goals. I'd like to back it, and the goals do look good, but I've backed several Kickstarters and just recently bought a 3DS, so I'm a little low on funds.
Anyone want to talk me into pledging? $25 is my sweet spot for games, and is generally what I've pledged to previous Kickstarter drives.
I've backed many games, most of them are just ideas and of them wanting to make a game or sequel to a game with some concept arts or maybe some screenshots.
This one is actually finished, not as in finished for release, but they certainly have the damn game to show. Before the Kickstarter started, gaming websites have already covered their gameplay previews and stuff. Not to mention, it's Larian, the dudes that made Divine Divnity, and the other Divinity games. I loved Divine Divinity and Divinity 2. And seeing the genre turn into turn-based is even greater a bonus. And trust me, Larian are awesome people. The fact they placed all their games on GoG is how awesome they are.
You can always watch the gameplay video in this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAPamue3ies
or watch the shorter ones in their KS page.
EDIT: Anyway, I upped my pledge from $65 to $150 today, since I want Dragon Commander too. And that overtook my most expensive pledge overtaking DoubleFine adventure. Quite hefty but no regrets, skipping lunch for some weeks probably.
You don't need to tell me Larian are awesome. Divine Divinity and Beyond Divinity were my first purchases here on GOG, and I have a boxed copy of the Divinity Anthology. I would have bought Divinity II sooner, but at the time of its release I didn't have a computer that could play it. (I am, incidentally, still interested in trading my Divinity Anthology Steam code for a Divinity II GOG code - do you think if I emailed Larian they might exchange it?)
I'm not really interested in Dragon Commander, but I've been excited about Original Sin since I saw it announced. I guess the thing with the Kickstarter is that, since they've put out their stretch goals, I don't want to get my hopes up for the game if they won't be able to include those things. It does seem silly though, since $25 is almost certainly cheaper than it will be at release, and I'll likely buy it anyway.
Do you think if Larian don't succeed in achieving their stretch goals, that they might include the content as an expansion? I would like that.
