Two things that dampen my possible fanboyage here: no direct involvement from Chris Avellone, and knowing how the new Bard's Tale ended up in terms of having anything at all to do with its predecessor.

Here is my impression of 25% of the threads at F13 lately:

Skeptic about this, mainly because I think they might end up "trying too hard" to resemble what was a unique piece of storytelling. In other words, it may result in a  story that tries to be complex, witty, gritty and whatever adjective you want to use...Just for the sake of it, resulting in a huge, confusing and ultimately unsatisfying mess. Let's hope they'll just try to make a good game. The rest will hopefully follow.

since it takes place a billion years in the future, i'd be very interested to see what sort of stuff they can come up with.

And by "live" you mean "busted through its goal in under 3 hours". Holy shit that's a lot of cash.

Updated our Journal...

You’ve got to be freaking kidding me!! We just funded in six hours!?!?!

Our heads are still spinning at the incredible response we have had from today's support of our Kickstarter campaign. We had plans to roll out our stretch goals and to write our Kickstarter updates but never in our wildest dreams did we think we would fund this quickly!!! We are joyfully scrambling right now to get a longer update and some stretch goals in front of you as soon as we can. We should have more to say later today.

You are all unbelievably awesome and we could not be happier about receiving your trust in us. For many years we have wanted to get back to making this style of RPG but it appeared that the market was going everywhere but that direction. Almost every article and new game was focused on being an MMO, multi-player or micro-transition based. This wasn’t our style and we couldn’t generate interest in the classical narrative type of RPG that we all grew up making and playing. Thank you for backing our vision once again and we will not let you down. We will continue to communicate and and make sure we solicit input such that the game is hitting all the right notes.

Our goal is to make great RPGs for you all for the rest of our careers.

Thank you,

Brian Fargo and the team at inXile

I'm personally confused why anyone is at all is excited about either this or Wasteland, since inxile hasn't produced anything that wasn't complete garbage in the 10 years they've existed.  This is coming from someone that backed Obsidian's game, that's how little faith I have in these guys producing anything worth playing.  I know this is falling into "stop liking things I hate" territory, but I just don't get it.

Because Torment and other projects like it are aimed toward nostalgia: rational thought is not what they are about :).  And the old school CRPG crowd, easy to get hyped up, apparently (and yeah, "mea culpa" too :P), shows that it hasn't disappeared; actually, it's alive, kicking, and ready to shell out a lot of money :)

Yeah, basically nostalgia. I'll buy every classic CRPG just in the hope somebody sees there is still a market for classic CRPGs and makes another one.

I can't regret anything InXile will produce more than Inquisitor or A Farewell to Dragons.

Their release of bards tale as a gift scared me a bit. Wasteland holds a special place in my heart, but I'm with Schild, I'll pay them after its reviewed and released.

By all means, back Wasteland 2, Fargo seems to have a clear idea on what to accomplish and how to do it.
He's got some talent on board - but taking on two projects at once - and using the brand name Torment as recognition is just a smelly cash grab.
I will not back this and rather wait for WL2 to actually convince me they can do a good game.
