The Bard's Tale IV Kickstarter campaign is entering its final week. Yesterday, it passed $1.4M of funding, adding veteran RPG designer Monte Cook to the game's team. Due to July 4th, today's Kickstarter update doesn't do much more than announce that, but here's the obligatory quote:

Happy 4th of July weekend for all our American backers. In the US, this weekend is about family and celebration and we’ll use it to recharge our batteries before our final week, but before we check out we wanted to give you one final quick update.

The biggest news as of yesterday: The first of our stretch goals to put together the ultimate RPG super team has been hit, and Numenera creator Monte Cook is joining The Bard's Tale IV!

The exciting thing about working with someone like Monte is that as a veteran pen and paper RPG designer, he will bring a fresh yet experienced perspective to our game, helping us to look at our dungeons from a new perspective and thus craft more varied, engaging challenges. And he knows dungeons, as the creator of dungeonaday.com, a site set up to provide gaming parties with huge amounts of adventuring content!​

The campaign has also unlocked sufficient gamification achievements to gain a new reward - two Julie Fowlis songs, one of which is the in-engine video song that everybody has been asking for. Three more achievements are required to unlock the next reward, although it seems inXile haven't decided what that's going to be yet.

So that's it for this week. I wonder what surprises they have left for the last one. The Chris Avellone stretch goal seems out of reach to me, but can Colin make it in?
