Phaidox: It's mind-boggling that such a promising project has trouble raising the money...
I wouldn't say they're having trouble. Over half way to their goal with 26 days to go. They'll hit it easily.
they say they hope to add other races.........i wonder what that would entail.

RPGler: You are absolutely right. Larian, CD Pojekt and the german developer and publisher Daedalic Entertainment are even partners.
And yes gog should say something about it. (Do gog read something like this in their forum or do they miss it?)
Interesting :) didn't know that.
But when I think about it, I can see why GOG wouldn't like to promote this. GOG users interested in this game might get it from Kickstarter and when it'll be released just redeem it with a code on GOG, and GOG won't see any money from those copies. But I seriously hope they'll spread the word anyway.
This is a year old blog post by the founder of Larian Studios, but it's definitely worth to read!
How Larian ended up self-publishing/

They've been one of my favorite developers, but recently they've make it into my TOP 5 list :)

It isn't going as fast as it should for a few reasons, it's the Easter weekend currently, the Torment kickstarter is taking up most of the attention in the RPG space of KS, the reward tiers aren't very well designed; for example 65$ for the Original Sin+Dragon Commander is too much. Also a lot of Kickstarters go well because the game won't be made if the Kickstarter isn't successful, Original Sin seems to be pretty much finished and this Kickstarter is just to add more content and a modding editor.

Read through that blog and will bookmark it. Provides a great insight into how things work between devs/publishers. Kinda understand why Larian self publish.
The blog post by Swen about dealing with some publishing producer made my blood boil, a guy who previously worked as a perfume salesman and who had never played a game in his life apparently lectured the Larian dudes on the fact that every RPG needs social integration and all this crap. And this is in Europe, where more niche games still have a little chance of getting funded, I cannot even imagine how shitty it must be for devs in the US

Those publisher parasites deserve to burn and have everything they produce pirated.

And Funded. Too many great KS to fund and not enough funds.

RPGler: On the other side I'm warily about kickstarter. Sure, gamers can support their favourite projects and are helping the developers for more independency to make games more multifaceted. Theoratically.
I am absolute sure there are some creative supporters, but what will games become in future (I mean it in a general way) , when everybody is spending a little conversation or idea to it (when he paid enough). Will not the games become too typical ununique because each supporter is connected a bit, that in the whole result the games are nearing to each other in theyr literal possibilaty? It maybe looks now different, because we are right in a break from typical developer/publisher-circulations to more free2play, crowdfounding and indiedevelopment, were more and more people got the possibility for self-publishing.
As for KS and what this means for games...hopefully more games like Baldur's Gate, Fallout, Planescape: Torment and less like COD and Madden.
Actually games like CoD and Madden will always exist, they are a very separate market. What I hope is that Kickstarter means more real RPGs, as in Computer RPGs (no console release), and less multi-platform shallow action games pretending to be real RPGs (ie Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Elder Scrolls, etc).

It's about clearly dividing the market between mainstream publisher-funded multi-platform "RPGs", and independently-funded Computer-exclusive no nonsense RPGs.
