Bard's Tale IV

Recommended Posts

LOVE Bard's Tale. 

 

The only drawback is that I'm not fussy on electronic game KickStarters.  They really worry me.

Loved the Bard's Tale when it came out on my Apple ][, but I can't get excited about them doing another Kickstarter while I am still waiting for Numenera.

Loved the Bard's Tale when it came out on my Apple ][, but I can't get excited about them doing another Kickstarter while I am still waiting for Numenera.

 

The problem is that even these old school video games take a lot of artists and programmers and level designers and if they don't have their next game ready for production when they finish work on Numenera then either inXile start to bleed money or they have to lay those people off as they work on the design for Bard's Tale.  And yeah, MiniCannuck is right, in theory video games are too likely to suffer delays or fail to come together at all for it to make sense to buy in before any work is done.

 

But somehow, personally, I'm just debating how willing I should be to help make games that I only wish I had the time and interest to play happen.  I mean, in theory if I'm willing to back this I should have already bought a 3DS and the newest Etrian Oddysey game, right?  Or at least played through Wastland 2.

 

I need to work out how to play computer games while painting instead of just listening to podcasts.  Maybe some custom cyber arms...

Oh, I understand the realities, but the customer in me doesn't care.  But, this is one of a very few digital/computer Kickstarters I have done.  They turn into vaporware too easily.  I am not worried about Numenera at least.  I just would like it. :D

Brian Fargo is really milking those past glories.  But then, I love all his past glories, so I'm going to be in this one.  Next up: Battle Chess 3.

Your Rook just ate my Queen! :blink::down:

 

The Auld Grump - Wastelands II was exactly what I wanted it to be!

If it helps any,  they did deliver Wasteland 2 and IMO it met all of its goals.  InXile is also run by Brian Fargo,  who one could argue is one of the fathers of CRPG's and has a good deal of industry clout.  He also put 1 million of his own money into Wasteland 2 and InXile has stated that if they hit the 1.25 million dollar goal then InXile will put 1.25 million of its own money into the development pot for BT4,  so it doesn't sound like they're broke.

You're a bit late,  Battle Chess had a kickstarter that didn't make its goal so they turned to Steam Greenlight to get the game made.  You can pick it up on Greenlight today.

      Story
      It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square.
      WANTED:  LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery.  REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member.
      Speculation and rumour was rife!  Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam?  Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women!
      Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit.  
      But still the robberies and raids continued...
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume Two
      A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One
      You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge.  Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'.  You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals!

      It's only an 11 day  project, so hury up and back.

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
