It worked for Tim Schafer and his unnamed old-school point-and-click adventure game. Now Brian Fargo, Interplay founder and producer of the first two Fallout games, has taken to Kickstarter to see if fans want to a sequel to the beloved PC post-apocalyptic strategy-RPG Wasteland. So far, the answer is “very much so,” as more than 12,000 people have donated nearly $700,000 of the $900,000 Fargo needs to make the game.
If you watch the video and hear Fargo describe it — as well as hear who he’s got working on it — you’ll learn that the game will be a classic, top-down, turn-based strategy RPG. So this isn’t just a chance to get a sequel to one of the best, most beloved PC games of all time, it’s also finally a chance to return to a classic game style that modern incarnations of classic games like X-Com and Syndicate are unfortunately avoiding. Now that is a cause well worth supporting. You can learn more about Wasteland 2 and donate here. Thanks to SlyDante for the tip.
