Fig CEO Justin Bailey, who was the COO at Double Fine... -snip-

Yikes, considering how well run Double Fine was, that's not exactly reassuring.  :wacko:

 

But Brian Fargo and Feargod Orcheart are on board.

Yeah, sorry, but Fargo and Feargus are not enough to offset the Double Fine stench for me.

As their role in Fig is to oversee the company, and if at all anything beyond that, then at most being involved in the kickstarting process itself rather than development, I don't see Double Fine's invovlment as a liabilty at all. After all, their Broken Age kickstarter and the documentation of whole process were remarkably well done.

Yeah, I get they're just running the platform, but that's enough to keep me away.  I will never again give my money in advance to anything that has anything to do with the folks that run Double Fine, regardless of their role in it.  Also, I'm glad you used the word "liability", because Fig seems like a ticking legal timebomb just waiting to go off.  I want nothing to do with it.

We all might have something to do with it when Obsidian and inXile fund their next games through it, like they said they're planning to. Then again, if we don't participate as investors, it'll work pretty much the same as on Kickstarter.

I figured that might be the case.  I suppose if and when that happens I'll personally pretend there is no crowdfunding campaign and go back to the old skool way of buying a game when, and only when, it is physically available.  In all honesty, I'd probably be best served to do that with all crowdfunding, not just Fig.  I've kind of started growing disenchanted with crowdfunding in general.  For me, the honeymoon is over, I guess.  :unsure:

In theory, a curated video game creation site, like Valve's Concept section for Greenlight, sounds fine. Feargus and Fargo? Excellent.

 

But then you get to the part where it is crowdfunded. Don't get me wrong, that's great. But the beauty of an open platform like Kickstarter, etc. is that you are encouraged to spend money via looking at how many other legit projects are going on.

I think having two of the biggest kickstarter successes plus the double fine guys who are regarded as a success is enough to bring people on board. Harebrained Scjemes would have been better to bring on IMO

Probably not too many people here play Combat Mission, but if you do you might know it badly needs an operational layer in addition to the tactical layer which it already has (which is excellent btw). Well, here's a small Kickstarter for an operational level game which might link to Combat Mission in the future if all goes well : https://www.kickstar...mbat-operations

Still waiting on the spiritual successor to Close Combat.

This one's for Volo:

Thought this might appeal to some here:

From the page: "Classic JRPG combat meets action packed dungeons and stylish storytelling. Use skills and strategy to survive a lush, brutal landscape."

 

From the guys who made Darksiders and Joe Mad, the guy who created the visual style of Darksiders and comic artist.

Pros: 

  • Garrison uses a shockingly reasonable sized sword
  • Scantily clad red head  :brows:
  • Badass looking golem

Cons:

  • Gully's ridiculously gargantuan gauntlets

 

I'll definitely check it out if and when it releases and if and when they do a Linux port.

I think that would be half-b00b plate with fur-lined gorget and belt-suspended chausses. Almost ideal protection against male gaze attacks.

I don't think there's any plate to it, it looks like leather, or some sort of fabric that's somehow defying gravity (unless there are straps hidden under her hilariously tiny vest) and covering part of her boobs.  Not the most protective outfit you can wear, but certainly effective for her "charm" ability.

Did he ever finish the series? I bought first trade, but there was never a second one
