Wasteland 1 available for purchase

Post by Brother None » November 13th, 2013, 10:53 am

Wasteland 1 is now available for purchase on GOG.com for $5.99 and on Steam for $5.99/£4.49/€5.49.
For the first time in over 20 years, we are heralding the return of a much loved piece of gaming history with the classic RPG, Wasteland!

Mutants. Again. Even more than there were last time: they seem to materialize out of the very grains of the radioactive desert sand. Venomous yellow eyes. The black gunmetal glint of Uzis as they close in for the kill. There’s nowhere to run, and nothing to rely on but your MAC 17 machine gun. What a way to save the human race.

The year is 2087, eighty-nine years after an all out nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union turned vast swaths of the Earth into a hellish wasteland where survival is a daily struggle against thirst, hunger, radiation sickness, ravaging raiders, and mutants - always mutants. You are a Desert Ranger, one of a band of stalwart lawmen born from the remnants of a U.S. Army detachment who survived the nuclear holocaust by holing up in a maximum security prison. You may wear ragtag uniforms and carry make-shift weapons, but the Desert Rangers are the only law left in what was once the American southwest.

Now something more secretive and sinister than the usual roving bands of mutants and raiders is menacing humanity, and it’s your job to investigate. Recruit the help you need, follow any leads you find, but beware. The wasteland is lawless desert and a lonely place, and the choices you make will shape the world around you. Better choose wisely. Your life depends on it.
If you backed the game don’t forget you’ll have a free key waiting for you at the Ranger Center.

You could think of it as the price you're paying for continued software support, including new version numbers; the price, if you will, for caring professionals to bring it onto new hardware which could never run the original copy you presently hold.
Not trying to lecture, just trying to suggest another perspective. I kinda envy you your original copy, to be honest, though I'm not at all unhappy with v2.0.1!

Just dropped in to say thank you guys, for implementing the soundtrack from Edwin Montogmery to W1 - that soundtrack is beautiful on its own, but actually use it in the game - shows how much you appreciate community :)

So thank you.

I'm another one of those people with the original disks, but I have maintained an operable version through ALL of my computers since the XT I used to play it on. I moved an operable copy to 3.5" disks, then later to CDROM. The new version is nice, and it is good to be able to play it in a larger window than the old one opens under DOSBOX. All the same, it is still fun to play the old one directly from time to time. My team of Supreme Jerks thank you.
