[ Game -> Article ] - More info on Person: Brian Fargo | More info on Game: Wasteland

1Up Managing Editor Garnett Lee dropped an interesting hint at the 80:50 mark in a podcast two weeks ago:

I think we are going to see a spiritual successor to Fallout One and Two from the guy who originally did Wasteland, and I'm just going to leave it at that.

As most of us know, Brian Fargo (the founder of Interplay and producer of Wasteland) now owns the rights to Wasteland with his company InExile Entertainment. Frankly, I'd love to see this happen.

Good. But wait. He did Wasteland? Thought he was only the producer.

And that Bard's Tale (not the one from 20 years ago) game sucked, right? Doesn't help much.

Right. Which is why I wrote in the newspost that Fargo was "the founder of Interplay and producer of Wasteland."

As for Bard's Tale, I never actually played it.

Bard's Tale more or less required use of graph paper.

I gave up 1/2-2/3 of the way through.

But my party was sooper-high level and had shiny gear.

Our old buddy Brian Fargo, who used to be cool when he made The Bard's Tale and Wasteland long time ago when dinosaurs were still roaming the Earth, is now hiring some people to work on a Next-Gen Console Multiplayer Networked Game Project using Unreal engine. Yay!

This news is from 2005, maybe they canceled it, or it`s gonna be a Wasteland MMORPG tard I hope for the best, meh.

Help us, Brian Fargo, you're our only hope.

Bard's Tale was fun but it was all hack-n-slash. It did have cool sprite graphics that I adore to this day, just like Wasteland.

I remember him saying somewhere that Bard's Tale is going to be Action/RPG, while Wasteland 2 is going to be more of an oldschool RPG.

Here is also some old news, yeah, there are like the name says, old.

Wasteland Ranger wrote:
June 13, 2003: Brian Fargo and his new game company, inXile, acquire the rights to Wasteland with the United States Patent Office. Soon after, Mr. Fargo shows up at Snake Squeezins to ask for comments about the game from its loyal fans. He notes the reason he didn't get the rights sooner was that Electronic Arts was sitting on them. When they expired, Konami grabbed it for use with their Yu-Gi-Oh series, but they were kind enough to let him have the trademark back. And the new Wasteland will be "darker in nature than the first one," and touts that it will be "very much an old school RPG that uses the skill systems, open ended nature of design, and puts the player into a world that is not black and white but shades of grey." Soon after joining Squeezins, he bails out as others were cross-posting his posts to other forums, and I guess he didn't like that.


Jeah Brian Fargo is probably the only one, who could make something great, but making a game better than Fallout 1/2 is liek :future 2104: impossible

By the way, since Wasteland was made in the 80s, it had a very 80s style (especially in character portraits), so it would be great if they made it 80s retro-future. I'd love to have a post-apocalyptic game with 80-style pink clothing, 8-bit electronic music and Commodore 64-like advanced supercomputers smile.

This is good news. Maybe we should focus our attention on this instead of Fo3?

On a side note, I've been trying to get Wasteland to work properly on my comp. for over a year now... is running it through DOSbox the only way?
