On the one hand, this means they're already a long way into production (because otherwise, 13 months after the end of the campaign seems rather optimistic). On the other hand, they're clearly using Fig as an injection of funds and as an investment opportunity, rather than a way of kickstarting the game into production. Perhaps that's another reason not to use Kickstarter?
I should really pledge towards this. And yet, I've barely made much progress into the first one. I pledged for Wasteland 3, and yet I've not even started Wasteland 2 yet. It would be sensible to wait until I've done all that, by which time Pillars 2 will have been out for a couple of years and heavily discounted. :)
