Well. If you pay $20+, anyways
Back The Bard’s Tale IV‘s Kickstarter Campaign with $20 or more of your hard-earned cash, and you’ll secure yourself the “free incentive” of the first three games in the series for free.
That’s full versions of The Bard’s Tale (1985), The Bard’s Tale 2: The Destiny Knight (1986), and The Bard’s Tale 3: Thief of Fate (1988) for dropping $20+ towards inXile’s Kickstarter campaign.
“It’s pretty amazing to see how far the graphics have come since these first games and it’s fun to think that people will still be playing these classics decades after release,” said Brian Fargo, InXile’s CEO. “These games made my career so it’s only fitting that we are doing another game.”
“Of course playing them will not be necessary to understand the new title, but we wanted to give our backers the opportunity to and are always happy to give our supporters some free extra value!”
Announced via Twitter during PAX South, The Bard’s Tale IV is currently around $100K away from its $1,250,000 goal. It’s expected to hit PCs in October 2017.
