Brian Fargo, founder of Interplay, will use Kickstarter to fund a sequel to old school RPG Wasteland.
"Pondering bringing Wasteland back through this crowdfunding. It's a world I have longed to work with again," he tweeted on Tuesday.
He then confirmed his decision to fund the PC title using Kickstarter, telling IGN "this process means we don't have to do it like the publisher wants."
Fargo and Interplay also created Fallout 1 and 2, and the developer founded his latest company, inXile Entertainment, in 2002.
There's nothing like someone making a $1 million in a day to make an industry sit up and take notice, and Double Fine Production's recent success with Kickstarter has, if not directly inspired developers, then at least made them aware of crowdfunding as a viable option.
In the past Helgason has also backed a Scandinavian Indie Games party.
