Is this Black Isle? No, it doesn't really seem like it is at all.

I urge anyone interested in funding "V13," which has existed now in some "official" capacity for what, 5 years, to do some research and proceed with caution. Urqheart, Avellone and Fargo have nothing to do with this. It's kind of twisted that a small handful of people can revive a once-renowned studio's name.

Instead I'd hold out for Wasteland 2 which, with Obsidian co-developing, should be excellent. Plus, doesn't this make you giddy:

Their video describes an interesting-sounding game (in truth it sounds a lot like Forsaken Fortress, which - to my amazement - hit its Kickstarter goal a few hours ago. I say to my amazement simply because they were $30,000 below that goal no more than three days ago, and it looked bleak), but as xtal points out, this is not the Black Isle of old. The only thing that remains is the name.

I do wish them the best. Still, my money will - for now at least - go elsewhere. To Forsaken Fortress, for example.

It certainly makes me giddy.
