Wasteland 2 is already funded (That is the Windows version of it). If you want to see it on Linux and Mac the Kickstart Project needs a bit more funds... Read, decide, donate......

Wasteland 2 is the direct sequel to the first ever post-apocalyptic
computer RPG. The original Wasteland was the inspiration for the FALLOUT
series of games, and the first RPG to allow players to split parties
for tactical considerations, to face players with moral choices, and to
make them deal with the consequences of their actions. It was the first
to provide far more than the one-key-for-one-lock style of puzzle
solving. It was groundbreaking, which is why IGN named it one of the top
25 PC games of all time, Computer Gaming World named it the Adventure
Game of the year in 1988, and it was short-listed for inclusion in the
Smithsonian Institution’s current “Art of the Computer Game” exhibition.
The fact that you, the folks who know and love and play games, keep asking for Wasteland 2 told us that there is a demand for it.
So, we’re coming to you for support.
all, since you’re the driving force behind this game, we want to make
sure that we’ll be delivering the game you want. Wasteland is ready for a
sequel, and with your help, it’s going to happen. As for why you should
want to participate, we’ll let Kotaku point out why making Wasteland 2
happen is very important:
To do this game right, we need to
raise $1 million, but you'll notice our funding request is $900,000 and
that is because Brian Fargo has offered to fund the last $100,000 if
need be. That’s a lot of money needed, but not when compared with the
budgets of most full scale RPGs made today. The original game sold over
100,000 copies—on the Apple ][ and Commodore 64 platforms back in the
day. If everyone who played it then backs the project at the most basic
level, the game is on.
But we’re looking ahead to what we can do
if you all back this project in force. At $1.25 million, the money will
go primarily into making the world bigger, adding more maps, more
divergent stories and even more music.
At $1.5 million, the
world gets even bigger. You’ll have more adventures to play, more
challenges to deal with, and a greater level of complexity to the entire
storyline. We’ll add more environments, story elements, and characters
to make the rich world come alive even more. We will even be able to
bring Wasteland 2 to OS X and Linux! And after $1.5 million the sky is the limit.
