To quote inXile Entertainment and its Wasteland 2 Kickstarter project: "The end is in sight!"

After launching its Kickstarter in 2012, the Wasteland sequel is finally nearing the end of the development road and the official launch of the game has a release window set for the end of August. The game raised $2.9 million on Kickstarter, making it the seventh most successful Kickstarter project on the crowd-funding site, and soon it will be a complete (pending DLC add-ons), fully shipped product.

The game is currently available to download in its early-access form on Steam. You can buy in early by heading here. The early access version, which ostensibly the beta, recently received a huge update. You can find the lengthy details about here.

Our Take
I'm very happy Wasteland 2 is finally preparing for release. Partly because it is a game that looks like it could be very good, but also because it is a high-profile Kickstarter project, and it's good to see a game of this scope finally see fruition. I'm looking forward to checking out the final product.
