Those who love Fallout, post-apocalyptic games or real cRPGs that aren't made so that even retards could play it, should check Wasteland 2 (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inxile/wasteland-2) project out: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inxile/wasteland-2
and support it. For mere 15$ you can become a proud owner of digital DRM free copy of the game.

You won't be charged unless they reach their goal (at least 900k $) so you risk nothing.

All details you need you can find on a kickstarter ()project site or here ([url]http://www.rpgcodex.net/forums/index.php?threads/wasteland-2-kickstarter-now-live.70238/)

900 000 $ goal reached (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inxile/wasteland-2), now it's a question of how higher budget this game will have. Hopefully it will reach 2M $ which would allow it to become epic.

[hr]And here are some interviews with Brian Fargo (in case someone would doubt whether it's worth to donate):

Another video in which Brain Fargo in a humorous way explains what Wasteland 2 is going to be about:


The best interview so far: http://www.ripten.com/2012/03/27/brian-fargo-talks-wasteland-2-abysmal-publisher-treatment-and-having-fun-again/

There is some very interesting information here, not only for Wasteland/Fallout fans. I really recommend reading it.

OMG !!! Obsidian will share it's experience and some tools if Wasteland 2 reaches 2.1 M $. (http://www.nma-fallout.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=955012#955012)

Another update:


I did want to give some detail on what the definition of a party based game was since there seems to be some confusion. In specific terms you will be creating and customizing four Rangers at the start of the game and typically you would give each of them different skills to create experts in certain fields. Skills in Wasteland range from lock-picking to bomb disarming to even toaster repair. This creates the dynamic of having players taking very different approaches to exploring the world. In addition there will be three slots for non-player characters to join the party. They will be similar in most respects to a player created member except you will not have 100% control over them. They will have quirks that could range from momentary indecision with them not firing their weapons at an opportune time, to being trigger happy and wasting ammo or even stealing from your characters. This opens up a wide range of possibilities on which NPCs you decide to have join your ranks.

To sum up: 4 ranger party, 3 followers. Top-down exploration with isometric town map and combat is "envisioned". Turn-based combat mostly taking inspiration from Jagged Alliance and the like. Story set right after Wasteland, starts you out as Ranger recruits playing in the area of the first game, later has you going into California to establish a new base.

I strongly encourage any cRPG fan to support this project. We have Black Isle resurrected and a proper successor of Fallout will finally emerge.

Here's another update:

The 13th update (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inxile/wasteland-2/posts/208363) sees inXile upgrade the $30 tier to pull $15 pledgers upwards, and talks about the upcoming end-of-drive live streaming event.<blockquote>Also we have spent some time thinking about and asking fans what we could put into the $30 tier to make it more interesting and to not disrupt what has already been offered. I think we have come up with an interesting list that may persuade a few people to upgrade. Based on your top requests and a forum poll we now offer the following as part of the $30 tier:

• An extra digital download of the game in any format. Many people wanted to be able to get a Mac AND a PC version, or PC and Linux, or even an extra PC version for a friend. Now you can.
• Access to a collection of exclusive Ranger portraits that will double the pool of character portraits you have to choose from at the start of the game when you are rolling up your Rangers. This unique image collection will not only give you more Ranger portraits, but more Ranger icons used to display your party location on the world map.
• Access to a four-episode Video Development Blog that will show you an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the design and development of Wasteland 2. Sit in on designer meetings and art-review meetings to see the process behind how the game is made. See interviews with Brian Fargo, Chris Avellone, Mike Stackpole, Alan Pavlish, and the rest of the development team as they explain to you what they are doing and why they are doing it.
• A novella by Chris Avellone based on the universe of Wasteland.
Of course, all backers who are in at higher levels will also get all of these added items too.

Also we will have a live streaming party on Monday night (16th) from 10pm-12am EDT to celebrate the green light of production on the game. Our Kickstarter does not close until 5am the next morning, but we wanted to get some of our friends and family together to celebrate this little bit of history and share it with you. On attendance will be Nolan Bushnell the founder of Atari, Chris Avellone and a few other surprise guests. We will be answering questions received through live chat on the Twitch TV stream as well as from Facebook fans. I will tweet the URL Monday afternoon as well as post it here on Kickstarter.</blockquote>Fargo also confirms (https://twitter.com/BrianFargo/status/191628883978756097) the vision document (which was discussed as a possible tier reward) will be available to everyone.
