An old school RPG game project needs 1 million of dollars.

Maybe it's skyrim or world of warcraft clone in 2D and 8 bit graphics, it looks like a joke.

It's wrong to judge it only by it's goal value. The guys are seasoned developers, from what i saw, behind classics like D&D, Wizardry, Ultima etc. If the game has value enough and apeal to enough gamers, they could ask 20 mil. What's left is to know if it indeed has value enough to demand that sum :DKiyoshi2012-10-03 21:14:43

But it's about the brand which is known by the community, it's not about the good proposal.

I'd give Tom Hall $1 million any day of the week, if I had them.

It seems to be on track to break the $1 million, $100k+ in just over 24 hours.

I got to agree. You don't need 1 million dollars to make an oldschool RPG. Seems like a scam partially to me.

Ha, Im sure they arent planning on using 2d graphics but I agree they are extremely vague about the actual details of the game.

Wizardry 8 is an 'old school' rpg in a 3d engine. Old school Rpgs normally have huge learning curves. I remember playing fallout 1 for the first time... I had no idea what the hell I was doing. After an hour or so I was figuring things out though and it was extremely satisfying.

These days it seems most people have next to no patience for games, they are used to playing games that hold your hand whether you like it or not. The games that are too hard or dont explain every detail risk being shunned immediately by this crowd. (I might have learned this lesson the hard way).

Weren't some of those made by two people living in their parent's homes as hobbies aka. Homebrews.
