The Kickstarter for inXile’s The Bard’s Tale IV begins tomorrow, and backing within the first 24 hours will net you a free RPG.
We’re not talking “free copies of the original 1980s games”, either. Pledge at least $20 within the first 24 hours of the campaign and – once your pledge is collected – you’re entitled to either Wasteland 2, The Witcher, or The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.
Wasteland 2 is probably the big one there, considering that The Witcher series has been reduced in price millions of times, but it’s still a rather nice (and surprising) selection of titles. Your free Wasteland 2 copy will be available on Steam or GOG, while The Witcher games can only be redeemed on GOG.
The Bard’s Tale IV aims to offers a first-person, party-based dungeon-crawler packed with puzzles to crack and monster skulls to… also crack. But with a mace, rather than your head.
The Kickstarter will begin on 2 June at 6am PST, so we’ll likely have a lot more details then.

When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
