Free Book for Backers

Post by Drool » December 25th, 2014, 12:34 pm

I thought this might have gotten an official post here, but anyway:
Wasteland 2 Facebook Page wrote:Happy holidays to all our fans! With thanks to the awesome Wasteland fan John Joseph Adams, we have a holiday gift for all our backers: log into the Ranger Center and you will find a digital copy of the apocalyptic anthology book The End is Nigh under the rewards tab. The first part of a series of three, this book features 20 short stories focusing on the pre-apocalypse. Enjoy and have a good holiday season!

One of the stories is by Nancy Kress, so I'm pretty excited.

Looks like it might be limited to certain tiers.

Hm. Perhaps it's limited to Digital Deluxe and above? On my tab, it's at the bottom, under the novellas.

Hm, bizarre. Santa must have appeared and must have put it there too. I swear it wasn´t there last time I checked a few hours ago. Maybe it´s just a little patience that helps ... :D

We had a soft launch Monday that only included people who already had Novella downloads. But everyone who pledged a $1 or more on Ranger Center (or have Wasteland 2 as part of their reward with Torment) should be able to download it now. ;)

So I read the first short story and was all like "wait, google didn't quite exist during wastelands timeline" (was the apocalypse 96 or 98?) realized then these are not directly related to wasteland(the game) universe.

We'll mention it in a Kickstarter update too to ensure no one misses it (WL2 KS updates go to relevant Torment backers too)

Enjoy the read everyone!
