    Holy shit they're demanding 2 million!
    ... I take the lives of a few to protect the lives of many. I commit acts of war to preserve the greater peace. I take no joy in killing, but make no mistake; I'll do what needs to be done. Because it's my job. It's my duty. My name is Sam Fisher, and I am a Splinter Cell.

    I think the main idea is not to actually reach the funding goal, just to poke sticks at the Black Isle campaign and Interplay. I do hope their total eclipses that of PV13. That would be funny.

    Eight new contributors since yesterday.

    I just noticed that while the campaign countdown clock to super special secret forum launch (is that right? I don't even know) says 26 days, the end date for the campaign as listed on investedin is Dec 1 2013. Fear not Black Isle fans, they're willing to take your money all year.

    I shouldn't even be paying attention to this anymore, but the updates are pretty entertaining. Mysteriously, the text cannot be highlighted for copying. I guess that means their updates are just too premium to share around, or that they took a look at all that transparency on Kickstarter and decided opacity was a better fit for their needs.

    Well the ideas sound interesting but this is really not the way to go and they will come to know it.
    Read more here (On hold) or on Twitter! Occasional impressions on random sim games.

    It's Indiegogo; unlike Kickstarter, the funding is received whether the desired amount is reached or not.

    If you read the details, they only need 600k to be the majority shareholder (owning 50% plus on of the shares) if all shares are sold on at current prices. 1.2mil will allow them to offer twice the price of the current share value (which makes it more attractive for holders to sell their shares).

    This is based off of guess work as to who actually owns the shares & whether the share price is any decent indicator of actual value; Interplay have stopped filing proper accounts for the best part of this year...

    Usually that's how Indiegogos go, but they seem to allow for both fixed and flexible options, as evidenced by this actually being an all-or-nothing campaign. Which makes sense, seeing as how falling short of the goal would render the takeover even less likely. I still don't think they actually want any money, just a chortle-worthy joke to run alongside and shame the PV13 campaign for its duration.

    It doesn't seem like many people are falling for this scam, so you might want to keep your doom'n'gloom in check for a little longer.
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

    it is. They demand money so they can create product which they cab sell to bigger publisher. They are getting money without any risk to themselves. It is a scam.
