Having seen some actual development regarding LBA I have decided to post.

I am hoping that one of the Administrators sees this post and helps me post about the recent 'crowdsourcing' of funding for games:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...y=1&ref=search

These guys raised more than $1 million in a few days to 'fan fund' a new version of Wasteland (a late '80s game).

A similar story for another game:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...fine-adventure

Does this sound familiar?

Maybe we do a similar campaign for LBA3 so that the developers can build what they want instead of having to worry about publishers and their constraints. Fred and the other guys do have the credibility after LBA1 and LBA2 to do this so maybe it is worth contacting them.

Cheers,
Mike

I suspect Fred might start his own kickstarter, or something similar - it will be more trusted coming from the creators themselves.
Theres A LOT of silent LBA fans out there so I think a lot could be raised too.

For the moment though, lets see how well the Android/iPhone versions go.

btw, Welcome!

Welcome to the MBN, fellow twinner!

I love Kicktarter. Was shocked at how much Tim Shaffer raised - 3.33 million $! This game better be at least as awesome as Grim Fandango.

Also really excited about Wasteland 2 (the true successor to Fallout 2), and Pixel Sand which is going to be AMAZING.

I always enjoyed those browser sand games (or rather toys as they never had objectives), nice to see someone trying to add more structured gameplay to it.

I also read about Brian Fargo's Kickstarter project to create a sequel to the classic Wasteland game (I'm also a Fallout fan) and think this could also be a good idea as you guys suggested for a future LBA 3 project.

Would be cool to suggest it to either Frederick or Didier somehow.

Fred and Didier are almost certainly well aware of Kickstarter already
We just have to wait for their move.

Alternatively, if you have any cool story suggestions, I suggest you post multiple times here about them. Be sure to use lots of numbers as letters, and no punctuation - both are dated concepts.
