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

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."

(@ https://twitter.com/#!/BrianFargo)

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.

Heard about this earlier today and it interests me more than the Obsidian kick. Fargo has always struck me as a pretty cool dude and isn't the Wasteland remake what DaC wanted so bad not so long ago?

Aside from the fact that his obsession with collecting art ruined Interplay.

I never figured "Herve Caen" to be art of any sort.

I still blame Herve Caen more than Fargo's experiment in trying to further the medium.

I would donate like 10 dollars maybe for this but $15 might be too much. Guy hasn't really done anything meaningful with his new company and I never played the original wasteland.

Heck, I'd give 15 bucks for a new top-down, turn-based, post-apoc rpg. It's not like we've been drowning in them lately.

I've been chomping at the bit for a good turn-based tactical game like X-Com ever since Silent Storm.

The same thing with a good turn-based 4x space game. It may just be that I'm picky but the ones that have come out in the past decade all haven't been that good. I still play Moo2 a lot.

Same here, only problem is my wallet no hablo credit cardo. Somehow i think anyone that tries it might find that to be a trend among the customer base for something like this. icon_chew

Intaresting, although I don't see much of a chance it getting done. Let's revisit in a couple of years.

Kickstarter gets only 60 days and your money gets returned if project does not meet deadlines.

So dig deep into your pockets boys and girls and start funding. I personally am tired of Bethesda and Bioware shit dominating the industry.

Plus I'd kill to play a Fallouty-type Wasteland with isometric view and party based combat.
