Sure, although 5M still seems like a stretch. It's probably worth repeating that of the current 3.2M in funding, half of that is coming from Fig. There's some agreement in place that will say whatever it caps at but we don't know it, and I would assume that it will be tied directly to the fig campaign and not paypal/etc. But this is another way of me saying it could easily clear another 500k in total, just during the campaign. So I won't be at all surprised to see multiple goals hit this week, and more down the road. Or if it just sort of peters out. I'm satisfied with what we've gotten so far. I would certainly love to see more islands make it in.
For me, obtaining a ship in Ultima 3/4 is an indelible memory tied into 80s gaming. It was an amazing "I need to go explain to every human being that I know that I just did this thing in this game even though most of them don't even understand computer games let alone of the significance of getting a ship in Ultima" moment. I've rarely seen it's comparison.
It won't work exactly like that here, but the presence of the ship will still capture a lot of the same awesomeness that came with it. Just the idea that the map suddenly opened wide, and that far off mysteries were now there for the finding. It was such an emotional high to kid me. Didn't matter how many times I played 3 or 4. Every time I got a ship it was the same rush.
