Fargo has stated that he will take no money from this funding project as salary, and will be dedicating all funding to the game. Wasteland 2 also becomes the second high profile game funded via Kickstarter (the first originally being Double Fine Adventures) and has shown the possibilities of breaking from the traditional developer-publisher model. Interesting facts for Wasteland 2 is that the APP (average per pledger) dollar amount currently sits at $57 versus Double Fine's final APP of $38, which seems to indicate the Post-Apocalyptic RPG fans have money to spare. Wasteland 2 still has 32 days to go to break Double Fine's Kickstarter record of $3.3 million."
