Wasteland 2 is a sequel to the original wasteland released in 1988, which was a turn based rpg. fallout is regarded as its spiritual successor, so you know, it might be a big deal.


anyway, brian fargo has decided to borrow tim schafer's kickstarter idea and ask fans to donate for the sequel.

heres just a few select quotes from an interview about it.

>Brian: My tendency with this game is going to be closer to the experiences we all loved during the golden age of RPGs. Part of the reason we have the excitement we do is there is this general feeling that the games have been dumbed down for the masses. Politically correct situations, linear events, being careful no one gets lost etc...it can be kind of lame.
>Brian: Well here is the beauty of fan funding... we don't have to convince some younger RPG player of anything. I am making this game for the wonderful fans who put their money behind us and not some nebulous group of new people. Let's make the game they all expect and let the chips fall where they may. There is just no way I'm going to consider anything that could let down the core.

So, besides the the usual "we take a old game, call it sequel, make money out of it, everyone buys it anyways no matter how ****ty it is cuz original was godlike.", they also dont want to invest their own money and want it from other people spended...? How ******ed is that, and besides that, who would spend so much money that they have enough resources to develop a greater game then Fallout, i mean just look at the money people earned trough the Indie Bundles as a comparison.
