In his youth, Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan walked the path of piracy, but he’s made up for it now.

The executive tweeted that he had donated $10,000 to inXile’s Kickstarter for Wasteland 2.

“And I’m sorry for playing on a pirated copy of Wasteland years ago, I hope this makes up for it,” he added in a message directed at inXile lead and Wateland designer Brian Fargo.

“Wow. I just saw that you donated 10k. You more than made up for it. I am most grateful,” Fargo replied.

The Kickstarter has garnered over $750,000 of its $900,000 goal, with well over a month to go. Fargo was inspired to take the stymied project to crowfunding by the recent success of Double Fine’s Adventure Kickstarter.
