Today's Kickstarter update touches on some "administrative" points, namely, post-campaign funding, reward availability, our upcoming backer web site, and more. ... ts/1292801
We did it! Thanks to you, we did not just fund The Bard's Tale IV, but went past the base goal to raise a total of $1.5 million! We can't thank you enough for your backing and your passion for classic RPGs.

So what's next? The Bard's Tale IV can now continue its pre-production stage before moving into full development. Most of the studio is currently working on Torment: Tides of Numenera, and a smaller team is on Wasteland 2 Director's Cut. As those projects wrap up we'll move people on to The Bard's Tale IV. We will of course keep you updated along the way!

Many of you have asked, now that the Kickstarter is over, if we will still be taking ongoing funding. The answer is yes! We will continue to take pledges on our own web site.

Processing Pledges and Rewards

Just like Wasteland 2 and Torment, we will be building our own backer web site where you can manage your pledge and claim your rewards. We will inform you when the site is available.

We've been getting questions about what happens for certain rewards, like the first 48 hour bonus games or the emulated Bard's Tale Trilogy, as well as add-ons. These will be made available once the backer site is online. Keep a close eye on your inbox because we'll be contacting you about these.

If Kickstarter has emailed you warning you of a problem with your pledge, note that it grants a grace period in which you can resolve the issue. If Kickstarter alerts you to any issues, please follow the instructions provided by them. For more information, you can check Kickstarter's Help Center.
