Just Over One Day Left to Back The Bard’s Tale IV on Kickstarter
There’s just over a day left to go in the Kickstarter campaign for inXile Entertainment’s The Bard’s Tale IV. The game has reached its $1.25 million base goal, and in fact has crossed off a few of its stretch goals as well. However, as can be seen to the right, the involvement of both Colin McComb and Chris Avellone in the game’s design has still not been secured.
Who is making The Bard’s Tale
The Bard’s Tale IV is brought to you by inXile Entertainment, led by Brian Fargo. Brian was directly involved in the creation of all three The Bard’s Tale games in the 80s, the first game launching his long and storied career at Interplay and inXile through the 90s to now.
inXile has embraced the crowdfunding model fully, delivering the fan favorite Wasteland 2 (over 70,000 backers raising over $3 million), and following it up with Torment: Tides of Numenera (over 90,000 backers raising almost $4.9 million and still going). We doubled Wasteland 2’s crowdfunded budget with our own funds, and continue to support it with the upcoming Game of the Year Edition, which will be released as a feature rich and extensive free upgrade to all PC backers and buyers.
The Bard’s Tale IV is spearheaded by the same team that delivered the award-winning Wasteland 2.
