Making good on their promise of keeping their Kickstarter backers in the development loop, Brian Fargo and InXile have shared the first screenshot from their crowd-funded Wasteland 2 project -- an early image showing how the game is shaping up in the chosen Unity engine.
Releasing a screen shot this early in the process is a new concept for me as we typically want to hone in every element before we show it. But based on the requests and our desire for fan input, we are doing so to solicit feedback on the basic look. Please keep in mind that we have not put in the particle effects and post-processing which will have a dramatic effect on the scene, and this represents just one of the various environments for Wasteland 2 so expect to see other quite different locales. Also, this particular camera angle is on the low end of a range that the player can adjust upwards to a much more top-down view, for those who prefer that style during game play.
The update over on the Kickstarter page goes into much greater detail on exactly what you're seeing in the image and what their goals for the overall look of the game are, and promises that the community site they are setting up for Kickstarter backers is almost complete and that it should eventually allow contributors to upgrade their tiers.

Oo I like that, I'd like to see higher rez textures though. As a preliminary screenshot, it is quite good.
