Brian Fargo

First Schafer, then Obsidian and now it's Wasteland wizard (and current copyright holder) Brian Fargo with Kickstarter fever. He got on Twitter and made the following statement:

"Pondering bringing Wasteland back through this crowdfunding. It's a world I have longed to work with again."

Sounds like "testing the waters" on his part but his Twitter activity following the statement is quite encouraging:

"Very encouraging to see all the love for a new Wasteland. Crowdfunding might be the perfect way to make it a reality...."

"I'm quite enjoying bringing all my Wasteland documents back out again to read. Wasn't sure if it would ever see the light of day."

With the Bethsoft-ization of the Fallout franchise not to everyone's taste, this might be the best bit of news in quite a long while, since as we all know:

"(...) Wasteland was the precursor to @fallout. We made Fallout because we didn't have the Wasteland rights."

In addition...

"I want fans to know that a new Wasteland would be complete old school vibe and made with input from gamers. Made the gamers way."

F*** yeah. Eurogamer reports the campaign is to start next month, so stay tuned.

Wasteland game over

Then again, maybe not.
