I want to thank YOU, all the great folks in Obsidian who gave me and so many other devoted fans this astonishing opportunity, and just as much I want to thank to you all fellow backers and RPG lovers for making this dream come true. Well now, I have not a slightest clue how this choosing reward tier works and whatnot, but I can't care less, for me personally the greatest reward is fact that in two years I will get just that kind of RPG I gave up all hope in ever seeing again. As for mr Avellone, just make sure to patch Arcanum with unofficial patch and Drog Black Tooth's latest unofficial patch and it'll be fine :yes: Seriously now, I hope Chris will shake off at least some of his resentment during playthrough and will enjoy at least a little bit SOME of the many enjoyable aspects of Arcanum. With best of wishes to you all I want to say one last thing... Don't hold back guys.

A big thanks to all the backers. There's plenty of people starved for a good cRPG out there. A big thanks to Alvin, Chris, Tim, Rob, Adam, Feargus, Bobby Null, Josh, "Oscuro" Salgado and everyone else that kept us company over the live stream. Feargus, I can only hope you keep Aidan away from sugar. He's gonna be a real handful with a sugar rush. Thanks to all the ladies working in Obsidian and putting up with all the sleazy people in the chat. Tina still has the best hair. All the guys, keep sporting those awesome beards. Adam, for a moment I thought Moby had entered the Obsidian offices. Put on some weight, good man! I was really let down Tim hadn't prepared any cookies or other snacks for the live stream. Oh, and one more thing; WOOOOOOOOO!

Wow, good job everyone! I'd like to thank everybody who pledged and so gave Obsidian the chance to create this impressive game. I'm really excited for the next updates, Obsidian is going to show off to us. :)

 

Best regards,

Vio

Well said. I couldn't do a thing when both BIS and Troika went down but, thanks to Kickstarter, I could play my tiny role in helping the devs. :yes:

 

Enjoy the well-deserved party to day and good luck on your development.

Thank you to Obsidian for taking the plunge into the unknown of crowd based fund-raising, Thank you as well for designing a game that will be spiritual successor to the BG/IWD series and my favourite game Planescape Torment.

 

As importantly, thank you to the fan base for continuing to power on ahead, right to the death of the campaign. As an early backer, I watched in amazement as the pledge total kept on ticking up and up like a reverse New Years countdown ball right up to just below $4M!

 

Well done everyone!

 

Aside: The outpouring of support towards OBS, marked by the amazing total really shows the gaming industry that there is an big appetite for cRPGs designed solely for computers that well designed and character and narrative focused.

 

Hopefully unamed gaming companies (who were themselves the former leaders of this genre) will sit up and take notice before they their IP get overwhelmed by the tentacles of corporate overloads who demand in their games support across all console platforms, Day 1 DLC, compulsory multi-player options and a game story line aimed for adolescent boys.

 

Here's hoping they were paying attention.

As many others have said, Thank you Obsidian.

 

Thank you for daring to make a game that a lot of us want, but is harder and harder to get. Thank you for all of the brilliance, and fun, and sorrow from the myriad adventures you have created here, and elsewhere. Thank you for shaping the kind of gamer, and person I became.

 

Thank you.

From my experience in Wasteland 2, backers will have a chance to pay through Paypal for extra shipment once they set everything up and you can review how much you have pledge and what reward you want.

 

Its normal for people to forget shipping.

 

You can't change anything on Kickstarter now, but you should be able to do it directly with Obsidian later on.

 

For now, lets wait for the official word from them. Your problem will most definately be address and we'll see what are the instruction to pay for shipment.

I think the overwhelming support is a testament to the great games you made and the fond memories they evoke.

 

All the best for this new poject, cheers !

 

In terms of a deep, quality RPG I feel like I've been wandering in the wilderness for 20 years, so thank you.

 

Despite a few exceptions, I tend to agree with you.
