Don't pay attention to this projection **** goddammit, like if someone could predict in advance what's going to happen. Not only this kind of projection is bull**** but it also could prevent people to pledge. Yes, we will make it! It will be close but I'm convinced we'll do it.

Also I'm late to this thread, so can someone help explaining why this is being kickstarted, while the official Tomb Raider brand is still making money and owned by well-off Square Enix who could have easily provided for it?
(No shade, just genuine curiosity).
Because if the franchise is not called "Final Fantasy", "Kingdom Hearts" nor "Dragon Quest" Square Enix simply won't care.

Added +35 in the gauge. I'd better stop here now.

Well, although a bit true in that regard (they give less importance to Eidos' brands), Nathan needed creative freedom to accomplish some of the things he wanted for the TRSuite. If I understood correctly, he had to get the "rights" back of his music for the concert, and got it for like five years or something, so he's also taking advantage of that.

And let's be honest here, Nathan's doing this for the fans, with passion, we know this will be a better product anyway

True, and at least they gave him the rights for free if I'm recalling it correctly. Still, it's a bit of a shame they did not sponsored at least a bit of the project.

I'm so nervous!!

I don't understand how Nathan McCree looks so calm about this.

It would be a MAJOR let down for me if we don't reach the goal. I was at the concert and I want to enjoy this in my house anytime I want!

Maybe he's already found a sponsor who will cover all the missing amount in the latest minute?

New add-on available, guys.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects.../posts/1918820

Tomb Raider Suite acrylic logo for +50.

This price is a nice surprise as I thought it'd be considerably more expensive. It looks really good I have to admit. Let's hope it will convince more backers.
