After inXile blew through their Kickstarter goal for their latest game project, Torment: Tides of Numenera, it came time to set up stretch goals. I mean, seriously, once your game blows through its substantial million dollar goal in record time (well, record time before that Veronica Mars thing happened), you’ve got to aim a little higher. Enter well-known designer Chris Avellone.
With some specific goals in mind, Obsidian’s Chris Avellone, designer on Fallout 2, the Icewind Dale games, and the more recent Fallout: New Vegas among others, is being enlisted to help inXile’s new game if the money comes out just right. At the time of this writing, the campaign had raised $2.8 million, just shy of the $2.9 million that their first Kickstarter for Wasteland 2 produced, and inXile is asking for at least $3.5 million to employ Avellone. That seems like a pretty easy and important stretch goal, something other Kickstarters should pay attention to.
