With Gas Powered Games now owned by Wargaming, and with the studio also owning the rights to Total Annihilation, GPG founder Chris Taylor has pretty much said, without saying, that a follow-up to the RTS game is “alive and well”. Without going as far as to announce it as being in the works, Taylor said the following instead (per PC Gamer): “In so far as other RTS properties that I am capable of working on – and I think you know what I’m talking about, I don’t even need to be coy – I think that nerd is alive and well. It’s just not an area I’m ready to talk about yet. But you can use your imagination, even though you’re not on the project. You’re welcome to use your imagination, your imagination will serve you well in this case.”

New $5 and $10 reward tiers have been added to Gas Powered Games’ Wildman Kickstarter, along with a video detailing how to fit RTS elements into an action-RPG. The new $5 tier gives backers “immediate posting access to the Wildman forum,” when the Kickstarter has completed. Non-backers will have read-only access. The new $10 tier hands out exclusive access to the pre-release Wildman beta as well as forum access. All amounts pledged above the $5 and $10 tiers will be granted access to the rewards, obviously. With 20 days to go, 6,252 backers have pledged $326,105 towards the $1,100,000 goal.
