Wasteland, the post-apocalyptic role-playing game that has been described as the spiritual predecessor to the Fallout series, could be getting a sequel... if enough people are willing to kick-start the project.
One of the game's producers, Brian Fargo, acquired the rights to Wasteland in 2003 and now, almost 24-years from when the game was released, he has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund Wasteland 2.
Wasteland 2 has a funding goal of $US900,000. At the time of writing, the campaign has received just over $300,000 in pledges.
A donation of $15 or more gets you a DRM-free downloadable copy of the game for PC. Donations over $30 receive the game, a concept art book and a digital soundtrack by Mark Morgan. Pledges over $50 receive a full boxed copy of the game with worn cloth map, and an episodic novella on the Wasteland 2 world. The rewards increase in volume and value, with the top pledge of $10,000 including all previous rewards, an invitation to an exclusive private party hosted by key members of the development team, 50 copies of the game, and a shrine in Wasteland 2 to be dedicated to the backer. You can check out the full list of rewards here.
The team intend on making Wasteland 2 a top-down tactical game with six months of pre-production and a 12 month development cycle.
