More info on Game: Fallout 3 (Van Buren)

Haha, no, really. It's another dead Van Buren thingie at NMA. This time it's a design doc for the dead area of Denver that was due to appear in the dead game that was cancelled and made dead some time back in the dark ages. You can download it here - I haven't done so, so can't pick out a quote apart from the one NMA pasted on their front page:

Denver is a pre-War city that was being rebuilt when the War started; prisoners on work release salvage what they can from the city while evading huge packs of hungry dogs that roam the streets.
The city consists of 3-4 large maps, with 10-15 smaller maps or floorplans DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD DEAD

(covering various buildings and high-rise floors). The salvagers are about 20 NCR former prisoners on a special work release program, salvaging stuff for NCR in exchange for their eventual freedom. The dogs are the now-feral descendents of local pets and specially-bred police dogs. Rats, giant cockroaches, mutant bats, and climbing lizards are common hazards, as well as robot police dogs sent to enforce the "quarantine" on the PC.

That's a more or less accurate representation.
