View Full Version : Back To Black Isle: Fargo On Obsidian Joining Wasteland 2

04-02-12, 04:00 PM

Last week‚??s wonderful shock news (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/03/30/obisidian-to-co-develop-wasteland-2-on-one-condition/) was that Brian Fargo and his team at inXile hope to recruit Chris Avellone and his team at Obsidian to work with them on the successfully startkicked sandbox RPG Wasteland 2. If funding for Wasteland 2 can reach $2.1 million (it‚??s currently at $1.8m (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inxile/wasteland-2), with 14 days left to go), it means a sort of dream team of ex-Black Isle staff would be working on a game that consciously harkens back to that golden age of cRPGs. I had a quick chat with Brian Fargo about what the potential partnership actually means, his thoughts on the wildly successful (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/03/15/16000-people-chase-the-apocalypse-wasteland-2-is-go/) crowdsourcing of the game to date, whether the hiring of Planescape brain Avellone means a more fixed rather than freeform RPG, how his Kicking It Forwards (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/03/23/kickstarter-evolved-fargo-wants-to-kick-it-forward/) crowdsourcing reinvestment initiative is going, and how he‚??d love to out-Kickstart Doublefine.
