  The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep is a modern take on the classic Bard’s Tale series that melds turn-based dungeon crawling with contemporary game design and graphics. It’s being developed by inXile Entertainment, the studio responsible for Torment: Tides of Numenera, Wasteland 2, and the recently released remaster of the original Bard’s Tale. If you’ve played any of these games, you know that inExile is adept at creating modern versions of classic RPGs.

  You might think a development studio that updates classic games is mired in the past, but inXile’s innovative approach to promoting The Bard’s Tale IV showcases an ability to think outside the box and try something new. InXile is marketing The Bard’s Tale IV with a tiered reward system like those found on crowdfunding projects. Rewards unlock based on the number of people who add the game to their wishlists on Steam or GoG.

  Here are the tiers in The Bard’s Tale IV’s wishlist reward system.

  100K wishlists – the iconic torch from The Darkest Dungeon added to The Bard’s Tale IV.

  300K wishlists – the price of the game is reduced from $39.99 to $34.99.

  500K wishlists – the price is reduced further to $29.99 and the “Dwarven Dungeon of Haerenhold” DLC is included.

  It’s worth emphasizing that these rewards are available to everyone whether or not they added The Bard’s Tale IV to their wishlist. The beauty of this approach is that it encourages interested players to join with inXile in promoting The Bard’s Tale IV in a way that benefits both the players and the developer.

  The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep is scheduled for release on PC on September 18 with console releases planned before the end of the year. If you’re interested in the game or just want to do a good deed by helping out your fellow gamers, visit Steam or GoG and add the game to your wishlist.
