Hmm… so much for that. I was on the fence there for a while, but this really doesn't sound like my sort of thing after all. Might still do the "guilty pledge", though, just to support dear ol' LB.
Ultima has done so much for me in the past, and I'd have rushed to put down my money on a dedicated effort to look back at what made the series great and then build something new and interesting (or even old and interesting) onto that. I believe many more would do the same, many more than the 14k the project has now.
Why can't LB see that?
Ultima, to me, means a living, breathing fantasy world to explore and deeply interact with, with meaningful NPCs on their daily tasks, a system of values and consequences, resource gathering and crafting and a great love for detail. It also used to mean the cutting edge of what technology allowed in that area.
What does it mean to everyone else, I wonder?
little backer that could
