There is still time to contribute. I've put my $10 in and will get a Windows or Mac digital copy of Chapter 1.

You can also get onboard with wasteland 2 if you're a tired old gamer like me.

I am fairly certain I am NOT a real gamer, yet I AM excited for this. Based on your initial deduction, perhaps you should expand the definition to read "not a real person"?
But Ayjona -- you are a real gamer .

Pretty cool they posted today on Kickstarter (update #6), that IPAD and Linux ports are officially confirmed (after the PC and MAC versions).

Favorite mobile RTS: Autumn Dynasty, Amoebattle & Red Conquest
Great TBS/SRPGs: Wesnoth, Battle Academy, Kingturn, Pantheon Cycle, Dungeon Crawlers, SW&E, Viking Lords, Metal Brigade Tactics, Tactical Soldier, Ravenmark, Tactics Maiden and Banner Saga

Or the GW2 trailer. Both had me screaming like a 12 year old girl at a Justin Beiber concert.

The difference, of course, is that there is actual gameplay on this trailer (starting around 0:42). That's why we are going a bit gaga over it.

also, if you bothered to visit the kickstarter or watch the video there, you'd realize this isn't a bunch of kids working on some shit-show game based on the title alone for some mega-company that only cares about money. these are accredited dudes with a real passion for what they're bringing to the table, and they've been bringing even more talent on board as time passes and donations pick up.

there's an obvious reason their kickstarter is over 400% to goal.
