Wasteland sequel kickstarted

Wasteland, the classic post-apocalyptic sandbox RPG, is to receive a sequel a quarter of a century later. "We wanted to make a Wasteland sequel, but didn't have the rights," says creator Brian Fargo of the publishing environment back then. "So we made Fallout instead."


  1. It’s already broken the funding goal ($900k, but really a million with Brian Fargo contributing $100k if necessary).  After 2 days, no less.

  2. Aww yeah! Base goal already met = extra moneys for game world expansion. Go! Go! Go!
    Yeah, the whole “giving the fans what they want” thing – that NEVER works, huh?

  3. Well, if getting Fallout is the pain we all have to suffer before getting Wasteland 2, I can think of a lot worse ways this could have gone.

  4.   If 18k people can raise this much in a few days to create a game, anything is possible, the masses can direct contract their own entertainment. Talk about cutting out the middle man.

  5. The interesting thing is not just that they’ve met their funding goals, but that they have also grabbed the true fans. There is some serious money being put on the table by individuals.

  6. I had an Amiga 500 hundred in the late 80’s !!
    I waited for an Amiga version … never happened.. WAAA!

    I’m still a turn-base enthusiast!
    I hope it comes with a map/level editor!!  

    Hurry up and finish Fargo! I remember your pretty-boy face on the inside of Bard’s Tale….
