Industry veteran Brian Fargo launches a new campaign to crowdfund the sequel to Wasteland 2, while Fargo and InXile have proven to be able to deliver in the past this time they’re trying a brand-new crowdfunding platform called Fig.

It was only a few years ago that Fargo was lamenting the death of cRPGs, and now he’s crowdfunding the sequel to the game he dreamed of making for 20 years. “Wasteland 2” is considered one of the best if not the best thing to come out of Kickstarter, and proof that the crowdfunding model does work as long as you’re backing the right people.

“Wasteland 3” is said to offer full Co-Op support, so that should add another level of awesomeness to the “Wasteland” universe for sure.

What’s New?

While “Wasteland 2” gave us a taste of what a good 90s RPG is, “Wasteland” 3 promises to expand on that by adding Co-Op that will allow you to play with your friend together or separately but still sharing the same campaign. Furthermore, InXile promises to improve on the tactical turned based combat formula from Wasteland 2 and throw vehicles into the mix as well. We can also expect some form of base building or base managing when it comes to the Ranger Base, lastly, they are revamping the dialogue mechanics designed by the writers of “Torment: Tides of Numenera”.

Vehicles, base building and base managing you say? Yes please!

Is there any reason to be skeptical?

At the time of writing this article the campaign page doesn’t outline any risks or challenges. That’s because this campaign is not being run on Kickstarter (which would be the platform Inxile Entertainment have been using up until now). You see, “Wasteland 3” is being funded on Fig a website that allows people to “invest” in projects instead of just pledging money as a backer. I would strongly advise anyone planning to invest to do their due diligence before committing a large amount of money, this video https://youtu.be/hFX0f_YUn1I (“DA- Psycho ‘frauds’: A DoubleFine Mess #FigOff“) by Dangerous Analysis discusses some of the risks of investing in a company like Fig. I personally will simply back the game with a small amount of money enough to qualify to some of the low tier rewards.

Just like in the previous “Wasteland” titles, death lures everywhere in “Wasteland 3” as well.

While I have confidence in InXile capacity to deliver, I’m not so sure about the platform that they have decided to use…Nevertheless, I will still support their campaign as a humble backer and hope “Wasteland 3” is as good or better than its predecessor.
