Back in 1988, in the days where I was still drooling over my mother’s breasts as a food source, a post apocalyptic rpg was released called “Wasteland”. The game was a top down, turn-based RPG that featured a strong storyline where choices mattered and morals were thrown by the way to get ahead. Wasteland is now listed as one of IGN’s top 25 PC games of all time. Wasteland was the inspiration for Fallout. In fact it was created by the same guy, Brian Fargo, founder of Interplay.
Now, with the success of Tim Schafer and Double Fine (who just ended their kickstarter campaign with an orgasm-worthy $3.3 million), Brian Fargo has appealed to the fans. And what a response he has received so far. Over$500,000 in a couple of days. They need to reach the $900,000 mark, but with 35 days to go, it looks like Mr Fargo and his team at inXile will go well beyond that.
Check out their Kickstarter page and pledge if you will.
