Here's my broken category and bookmark icons. Tried to upload earlier and it was the wrong image.  icon_razz No previous iOS8 update ever did this. Several plain old bookmark icons on my screen also look like these "graph paper" icons (presumably placeholders, or to indicate corrupted images).  saywhat

Ah, I didn't know that about Divinity. I do know that the reason why Divinity had such little funding from investors was their old school choices.

Wasteland 2 was also crowd developed. They made use of Unity's marketplace and basically modders went and looked at lists of needed assets, then built them, put them on the unity marketplace flagged for Wasteland 2, and the team would choose the ones they liked.

Normally I don't like the whole "contest" style of content farming, but in this case, if the artists' stuff isn't chosen, they still have it up on the Unity marketplace.

*Some early reviews (PC Gamer for one) suggest the post Early Access content (California) is buggy and has more problems cropping up than the Early Access region (Arizona) which obviously had a lot more folks kicking the tires.

So folks who REALLY wanna wait until it's "done" might need to wait for some hotfixes. Though by the time you reach the California content (maybe 20-30 hours), maybe they'll have issued some patches by then.  icon_smile

It's Wasteland, I expect to have to start over about 4 times before I figure out what the best combo of characters/skills is optimal before I can really start, maybe it will be patched by the time I decide. smile

Actually, neither Divinity OS, or Wasteland 2 had any funding except the kickstarter and investors after the fact.

Both games couldn't get funding because the devs wanted to do things that publishers considered unprofitable. Things like turn based combat, or top down perspectives, and PC only development.
Mmmm.... per Divinity OS' Kickstarter page:

Why Come to Kickstarter?
We want to increase the development budget so we can increase the size of our development team. This in turn will allow us to further increase the amount of gameplay in our game world. We are convinced that we are very close to making a great RPG and we want to rise to the occasion by investing everything we can into it.

So far the game has been funded by investors and by our own funds, but we have reached the limit of what we can do on our own. Here's where your help  becomes very valuable. Here's where you can make the difference.

Without your support, we think the result of our efforts will make a good RPG, but with a bigger budget we'll be able to go the extra mile, and accomplish our full vision for the game, as fantastic as it deserves to be.  
I only pointed out because here and there people chafe that Wasteland 2 (crowd funding only) doesn't look as spiffy as Divinity: OS (crowd funding to make a base game great, one might say) though I don't know that's the reason per se.

Anyway, this is a treat, I haven't really watched, read, or played anything except for the earliest previews during the kickstarter. Nice to go into a game blind these days.
That's how I feel too.  I'm looking forward to going into the game for the first time.  I was really tempted to use my backer beta access, but I held strong.

So the black market dude allowed you to buy a strange coin with glimmer this morning. Then exploiters, as exploiters will do, realized if you switched characters you could get another one. Then create and delete characters if you have a slot available and you can do it over and over and over...

You can no longer buy a strange coin from the black market dude.

LOL...  Should have been tested before rolling out.  I guess roll backs are incoming

Heh, guess not only can Japanese designers not stand having women with decent working clothes on, they can't stand them actually talking too.
