    Half way to their target ($260,000) of $400,000 on day 1, and raising at about $1000/minute. I think I can stump up $30 or so.

    Before you say 'Who?' kiddies, Monkey Island 1 & 2, Day of the Tentacle, Grim Fandango, Full Throttle, plus newer stuff like Psychonauts, Brutal Legend, Deathspank...

    Also, the Minecraft guy has offered to finance Psychonauts 2. There's still hope!

    And the best thing is it appears the offer is being taken seriously. I've been following this and apparently Tim Schafer and Notch are going to be talking about it at GDC next month!

    EDIT: To themselves of course, not on stage.

    $410,000.

    We have a PC game. Now lets up the funding for iOS and an orchestra for the score!

    they should use the extra money to make it the longest, most complex point-and-click adventure game ever made.

    That's pretty insane that they've gotten 1.2 million over the last day. Last time Tim and Ron teamed up we got of the the best games ever so I have high hopes for this.

    Yes, a big box. Pretty awesome (though I didn't spring the $100 for it.)

    Yeah, I was a bit cheap and only did the minimum one. But I don't care much for making-ofs and such.
