I remember hearing some time ago on Gamasutra that devs formally from Iron Lore were working on a new RPG. Well, they look to have made an announcement for the new game, Grim Dawn. It sounds like an interesting game, but what is also worth mentioning is that they are trying a finance model based on pre-sales of their game. Its similar to the model used by the creators of Natural Selection 2, and somewhat similar to the method used by the Torchlight developers to finance their MMOG with the single player version. It is also an idea which Gabe Newell spoke on some time ago.
I think that after the nightmare of game purchases that await me in the next 2 months, I might check this out. Might be worth taking a look and supporting a small dev making a quality game (or at least made one or two).
