inExile's Brian Fargo states that should the donations hit $2.5M, he'll bring in a “another couple of designers” to help out and create even more areas in the game.
According to Fargo, “This will not only increase the overall size and depth of the world, but it translates to more story lines and more player options as well."
“At this funding level we would also bring more level scripters in to allow us to get levels in faster," he added, promising, "When we get levels in faster it allows more iteration time to really hone things in. I believe that iteration time is the single most important factor towards shipping a polished and deep game."
“In addition, we will add more NPC portraits and equipment artwork as per what the fans have requested in the forums. We would also increase the music budget to allow Mark Morgan to layer in even more atmosphere," Fargo revealed.
He then marveled, "The bottom line is that this kind of budget ensures that Wasteland 2 is BIGGER than Wasteland 1.”
The developer also addressed the question of mod kits. Even if the funding somehow surpassed $3M in the next 11 days, Fargo would still hold off on making mod kits until after Wasteland 2 has been released.
