Torment backers trying to steal our MCA!

Recommended Posts

They are already 83% there (2.89 mil / 3.5 mil)...

 

Well, inXile claims that this will not interfere with Avellone's work on Project Eternity.

Let's hold them accountable to that!

Aw hell naw! They can have him after he finished his work here, and since it's the ETERNITY project I don't expect him to be done soon.

  :grin:

 

No it will be fine, haven't you seen the latest PE update? Obsidian has perfected cloning and there will be two Chris Avellone's in the unlikely, but hopeful, event that Torment reaches  $3.5 million.

 

So we won't see the PE experience diluted in any respects.

To be honest, MCA's involvment in Torment is really tame. He writes what? one companion. And it doesn't even sound like he does it alone if I'm interpreting the Colin/Cook comment right. *Supervising*, here, probably just contains looking things over and giving helpful comments. It's not like he's the editor.

I dunno about these extra kickstarter goals.

 

150,000 for him? Won't believe it unless I see a picture of them handing him a check with 150,000 on it. 


. Well I was involved anyway. The dude who can't dance.

Well in addition to the stretch goal they also supposedly expand the game a certain percentage for each 10K dollars raised.  Not sure how they measure that though...

I baked both projects, so I kinda feel about this like Gorlum talking to his reflection in a lake.

I feel like every Kickstarter should start throwing George Ziets and Chris Avellone on as a stretch goal, regardless of the actual purpose of the Kickstarter. Veronica Mars? Ziets and Avellone! Comfortable plus-sized women's wear? Ziets and Avellone! Wool hats with animal faces on them? Ziets and Avellone!

I'm still waiting for the bobbleheads.

hey as long as it dosent interfere with their work on project eternity...id say let them have it. Avellone and ziets deserve as much work and cash as they can handle. It nets them more cash and lets them spread their wonderful influence into more games, id say go for it.

 

As long as it dont interfere with project eternity of course :)

perhaps you were kidding, but that's just not how stretch goals work at all. The idea that the amount of money between stretch goals is literally the cost of the following stretch goal is not correct, not sure why so many people seem to think this...

 

All money is supposed to go into making a better game (more writers and coders, better quality assurance, and of course once all that has been fulfilled, peoples' pay going up); adding a stronghold to PE, for example, didn't cost 200k, just as hiring George Ziets likely didn't cost exactly 100k.

I'm glad that they've got Chris involved in the project, I think overseer over creative content is good to make sure the game has the right tone and feel.

Should we not start with some Ipelagos, or at least some Greater Ipelagos, before tackling a named Arch Ipelago? 6_u

They totally don't increase people's pay after these goals are reached.
