Back Bard's Tale IV On Kickstarter, Get A Free Game

InXile Entertainment is turning to Kickstarter once again for its latest game and the developer is making it all the more enticing to back the project.

InXile announced Bard's Tale IV back in January, and is finally set to launch the Kickstarter campaign for it tomorrow. As a bonus, those who back it in the first 24 hours get a free game of their choice between Wasteland 2, The Witcher, or The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings (backers must choose the $20 reward tier or higher). The kickstarter will give a full rundown of Bard's Tale IV, but so far inXile has stated that it will be a single-player, party-based dungeon crawler with "dynamic phase-based fights as well as devious puzzles and riddles."

Bard's Tale IV is inXile's third kickstarter. Its first project, Wasteland 2, released to positive reviews, while Torment: Tides of Numenera seems to be coming along nicely.

 

Our Take
InXile has certainly found its gaming niche, and based on its success with Kickstarter, also seems to have found a dedicated fundraising audience. I'm guessing Bard's Tale IV will soon be added to the developer's list of successful kickstarters – the free game is merely icing on the cake for its supportive fans.
