Wasteland devs look to Kickstarter for Wasteland 2, surpass goal in two days

Tuesday  morning, inXile Entertainment launched a Kickstarter campaign to crowd-fund a sequel to the popular post-apocalyptic RPG from 1988, Wasteland. Wasteland was the first game to feature a persistent world, moral choices that impacted the game, and varied combat options. It was groundbreaking for video games, and would go on to inspire Fallout nine years later. In two days, the campaign has raised over $1M, surpassing its $900,000 goal.

Heading up the project is Brian Fargo, Executive Producer of Wasteland and Fallout. Also on board are designers Mike Stackpole and Alan Pavlish (Wasteland), writer Jason Anderson (Fallout 2 co-creator), composer Mark Morgan (Fallout 1 and 2), and concept artist Andree Wallin.

Now that the project has been funded, the team is looking at a six month pre-production cycle to nail down details and address fan requests. They will then develop for 12 months, with a closed beta through Steam for backers of the project. The current projected release window is October 2013, but that may change if the project exceeds its funding goals by a significant degree.
