An uninspiring RPG full of technical bugs that had nothing to do with the amazing original Bard's Tale series from the 80s other than the name. Until he apologizes for that, he's not getting a single more penny from me.

lol. such a first world problem we have eh? all those poor 3rd world country folk will never get to experience the life we take for granted! woot!
Scope and scale is the number one request, and it is what we are focusing our monies on primarily. So at 2.5 million dollars we would bring in another couple of designers help create more areas. This will not only increase the overall size and depth of the world, but it translates to more storylines 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. 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.
