There's been an update on the Wasteland 2 front. Brian Fargo has sweetened the pot for those funding the project even further, if the Wasteland 2 Kickstarter reaches $2.1 million before it closes, Obsidian Entertainment will join the development of the game.
Obsidian was formed by names previously attached to Black Isle Studios, who's lineup of games have made up the better portion of my gaming experience (and I mean better in regards to quality, not quantity). Chris Avellone, a Olympian figurehead of game design, having worked on Fallout 2, Planescape Torment, Knights of the Old Republic II, and Fallout: New Vegas, reported, "Wasteland is one of my favorite RPGs of all time, and when Brian asked if I wanted to work on the sequel, I jumped at the chance."
Also, Fargo had to say of Obsidian's addition, it would give Wasteland 2 access to "an incredible library of story, dialog and development tools." As Andy Chalk, from the Escapist pointed out, this is "about as close as we're ever going to come to an Interplay/Black Isle reunion."
So, people, it's time to hit up Kickstarter.com, and get this done!
