inXile Entertainment is perhaps the perfect developer to utilize Kickstarter. With a huge fanbase and a focus on continuing classic gameplay there’s basically no chance it can’t raise hefty sums of cash.
So far, it looks like its campaign for The Bard’s Tale IV is set to continue the trend of massive funding that Wasteland 2 and Torment: Tides of Numenera started. This time inXile has also instituted a plan to get even more funding.
If you back The Bard’s Tale IV for $20 or more before June 3 6:00 AM PST then you’ll receive a free copy of Wasteland 2 (via Steam or DRM-free), The Witcher (GOG) or The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (GOG).
Thanks to this free game push, as well as the immense Bard’s Tale fandom, The Bard’s Tale IV may be fully funded within its first 24 hours on Kickstarter.
