About a day after their Kickstarter campaign concluded successfully, the folks at Obsidian have sent out another Kickstarter update, which contains info the total amount of money they made with Kickstarter and Paypal, the fulfillment options and the alternative ways to donate to the project, the rundown on the stretch goals and their plans for the near-future (yes, Chris Avellone will stream his Arcanum playtrhough!).

Here's a snip:

When is Chris Avellone going to stream playing Arcanum?
We'll be in touch soon with details on that. It might be a Holiday Special stream. Rest assured he's going to do it - you guys hit the $4M marker!

What's the next step?

OK so now what?

First, come sign up on our Forums if you haven't already. That's going to be the best place to connect with us throughout the development of the game. We'll also be up on Facebook and Twitter too. Backer badges will start rolling out in the next few weeks. If you have any problems signing up on our forums (our anti-spam can be rather aggressive sometimes, we apologize!), e-mail us over at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we'll get you all set up.

A survey will be coming in the next few weeks to ask you how you want to allocate funds. For those of you who are getting physical goods, before we ship anything, we will notify you and reconfirm at that time to make sure we have the latest physical address on file.

If you have any other questions, feel free to swing by the forums or e-mail us!


Some of you have been wondering how we will be offering keys for the game. You will be able to select one of the choices below for each key:

Steam: Steam currently supports Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. We will be offering you a SteamPlay key. This means with one key, you can play the game on any supported platform of your choice! The Steam version will also offer in-game achievements and we are going to look at adding Steam cloud support for an even better multi-platform experience. Please note that Steam uses DRM (digital rights management) however. DRM comes with this platform and is not something we can disable. If you want a DRM-free option, please see below. We will be offering DRM-free options based on the platforms that GOG supports at the time of us shipping the game. Currently, this means you only have a Windows DRM-free option, but apparently some big news for Mac users is coming. tonight, and hopefully good news for Linux users too down the road.

You may have noticed that there isn't a DRM-free Linux version listed; that's true today, but by the time we launch, we'll have one available.
