Here's a nice illustration along the same lines as the cat form: the "human Deer".

Since the vast majority supported the stretch goals, I wonder if the points brought up by the minority might have been valid enough to prevent Obsidian from pursuing them.

I'm gonna say it again...

The monetary point.

 

 

If these things are stretch goals, then don't they only happen if we as a community pledge enough money? As I understand it money would not be the main issue, because if there is not enough, then those goals won't come to fruition anyways. I think its more a matter of time and being able to assign qualified and experienced developers to complete the stretch goals.

 

If they don't have the money, they can't assign people to work.

 

That's how employment works.

Pleased with the end-2014 ship date (it'll be summer here tho) -- gives me time to finish my mammoth, neverending BGII EE play-through. I'm really hoping the length is similar too as I'm keen for a new RPG that is meaty and one can engage with for a long time.

I didn't know where else to ask this and I didn't want to bug Fionavar:  I see that Wasteland is early access on STEAM.  How will we receive our copies of it, for those of us who bought in at that particular tier?  I neither expect nor desire early access.  I'm just curious how it will work.

There's actually a thread about that from back in mid-December. Hope that helps.

Either the thread about WL2 or the WL2 forums.

It's very disappointing to get an update e-mail with the subject line, "Expected ship date" and then get something vague like, "Winter 2014." Winter ends in a few days, and the end of 2014 only has 11 days of winter, so I'm guessing that's the time frame, but we already had announcement of expected completion "forth quarter 2014" and "by the end of 2014" so this isn't really news or update worthy (especially as it sounds as tentative as the rest). It would be nice if the update says there's an expected ship date, to provide a date, Winter is not a date (even if you narrow it down to a specific year). </rant>

 

Other than that, it's looking really good. I really appreciate the detailed updates, I funded the Torment kickstarter, but they've gone to ground and are very sparse with their updates.

Typically "Winter (year)" means from the start of winter that year, not the end of winter. At least in the US. But would agree that it's not much different than saying "end of 2014" or whatever. :)

Well, you know how development is (or if not, read the updates!!!)... so giving a hard date is only shooting themselves in the foot. That's why things like "winter" or "end" are set, to give leniecy...

They should have said "Coming Thursday." That way, it could be ANY Thursday.

Do we have a description of Human\Dwarf\Elf races, and what define them or how they are unique. Or shall we assume they will be the classical variants? because with troll it proved not to be the case.

It's so great to see these ingame renders... they remind me so much of the IE games. I can't tell you how great it feels when you know that you're going to get to play something akin to them again, and to know that it's only months away! :)

The Death Godlike head in the center looks the best, personal opinion of course, but I'm more curious about the racial traits/stats than the models -- can't wait to get that information!
