Brian FargoSharing details about his Kickstarter success Wasteland 2, video game developer Brian Fargo sat down to chat about the highly anticipated RPG and his experience with the crowdfunding giant at last week’s E3 event.

According to its campaign, Wasteland 2 is described as the direct sequel to the first ever post-apocalyptic computer RPG. The game debuted on Kickstarter back in March 2012 and successfully secured over $2,933,252 from 61,290 backers.

inXile entertainment, which was founded by Fargo, revealed:

wasteland2“The original Wasteland was the inspiration for the FALLOUT series of games, and the first RPG to allow players to split parties for tactical considerations, to face players with moral choices, and to make them deal with the consequences of their actions. It was the first to provide far more than the one-key-for-one-lock style of puzzle solving. It was groundbreaking, which is why IGN named it one of the top 25 PC games of all time, Computer Gaming World named it the Adventure Game of the year in 1988, and it was short-listed for inclusion in the Smithsonian Institution’s current ‘Art of the Computer Game’ exhibition.”
