Wasteland 2’s Delay: All About Making Choice Matter

Wasteland 2 isn't coming out when we thought it was coming out. That's probably the greatest tragedy of modern times, maybe of recorded human history. But the reasoning behind it is actually far more interesting than inXile's original blog post let on. Yes, yes, polishing up the rusted over cessparadise is a big part of the developer's reasoning, but even once it's feature complete, creative…

Rezzed: Chris Avellone On Project Eternity & Black Isle

I'm most distressed that I didn't get a chance to say hello to Chris 'Planescape Torment' Avellone during my limited time at Rezzed. Especially because the only other time I've met him when was when I was blind drunk on French wine and couldn't manage anything more than a witless reference to talking skulls. Still, they do say you should never meet you heroes, so…

IsoMetro: Post-Apocalyptic Turn-Based RPG Underrail

John's just been moaning that he wants a new RPG to lose himself in for hours, and so I will provide. Well, eventually. Underrail isn't out yet - why must videogames exist before they are finished? - but if the wait for Wasteland 2 seems too torturous perhaps this could fill that turn-based, it's the end of the world and I feel fine, hole in…

Radiating Passion: Wasteland 2’s Design Document

Wasteland 2 is one of the fathers of the now adolescent Kickstarter revolution and, in keeping with early suggestions, it looks like this is one dad who'll be comfortable having all the necessary talks with his kids. Very open he is. "We are not afraid of the transparency of our process and thinking and intend to share it along the way." That said, today not…

Origin Sets Up Stall For Crowd-Funded Games

EA understand indie games, they really do, that’s why they have their very own indie bundle. They also understand crowd-funding, or at least they understand that it’s becoming a force that they must reckon with, one way or another. This could go one of two ways. Either Kickstarter HQ is about to be breached by corporate assault drones, or all the profits from FIFA 13…

Not The End Of The World: Wasteland Not Browser-Based

Among many frightening visions of the future spawned by modern day paranoia - for instance, widespread environmental devastation, nuclear genocide, or roving herds of spindly, twitching spiders that evolve to reside exclusively in jars of Nutella - there's the fear that all games will eventually bomb themselves back to the lo-fi, browser-compatible Stone Age. So when inXile head Brian Fargo announced that Wasteland 2 would…

Kitching Up With Catchstarter’s Big Names

We've posted about exactly this many Kickstarter projects recently: a few. But what's been going on lately with the likes of The Banner Saga, Leisure Suit Larry, Shadowland, Starlight Inception, Wasteland 2 and Bionite: Origins? In order to find out, I've just turned up unexpectedly at each of their doors, stared creepily at them for a few seconds and then wandered on to the next…

Post-Kickerstartpocalypse: Fargo Swats Wasteland Fears

Wasteland's rags-to-riches-to-reuniting-Black-Isle tale has been one for the ages, but - with the Kickstarter account four days from ascending to Money Heaven, where the streets are paved with people - what happens now? If offered millions of dollars and one (1!) Chris Avellone, I'd do just about anything someone told me - so has Wasteland 2 taken on an out-of-control life of its own? Not…

Interview: Obsidian’s Chris Avellone on Wasteland 2

It's happening. An astounding $2.1 million later, Obsidian Entertainment is getting the Black Isle band back together with Brian Fargo to make Wasteland 2. It's like some kind of Cinderella fairytale comeback story, only everyone dies in a radioactive pain puddle at the end. Or the beginning, really. But anyway, happier things! Shortly before the big news broke, I had a chat with Obsidian chief creative…

The Wasteland 2 Kickstarter page, which has a goal of $900,000, currently shows over $1.5 million pledged with 25 days left to go. This means the game will release on Mac and Linux as well as Windows but there's more to the story.

The Kickstarter page for Wasteland 2 is now live and is currently receiving about $1,000 per sentence I write, which means I should stop writing sentences and just paste in the…

Post-Post-Nuclear Roleplaying: Fargo Talks Wasteland 2

Interplay founder Brian Fargo and his studio inXile Entertainment hope to be responsible for the next big Kickstarter-funded game, having recently announced plans for a sequel to Fargo's 1988 roleplaying game Wasteland - perhaps best known as the predecessor to Fallout. Wasteland 2 will be a turn-based, party-based roleplaying game in a post-apocalyptic setting - in other words, in theory what veteran Fallout fans have…
