Nice, I really hope we'll get to see those animations of NPCs and Monsts too!!!
The official inXile forum community for Wasteland 2, Torment: Tides of Numenera, The Bard's Tale IV, and more!
Me like.When we got started with design, we noticed how spot on the map scale was for Arizona in the original. That was a cool element that we wanted to keep in L.A., but an irradiated tidal wave can certainly change the landscape.
Yeah, they stopped our offices after E3. Really nice guys. They did see something "running" but it extremely early. I'm talking quickly modeled guys running around a terrain with simple animations. Still, it's always an exciting time in the game production process to see little dudes traversing your world. It's the little things in life!cbspike wrote:Ok. I´m really curious because they are saing that after E3 they visited Fargo and inXile and saw somethign really interesting there.Brother None wrote:No.cbspike wrote:This site: games.tiscali.cz, promised to have 2 exklusive videos about Wasteland 2. They even stated to see the game running. Is it even possible?

Development on Wasteland 2 is moving rapidly, with multiple writers (including Chris Avellone, Michael Stackpole and Liz Danforth) creating scenarios. "The story now is 900 pages long," said Fargo. How does that compare to the original Wasteland? "It's much bigger," Fargo noted. "I'm doing one of the smaller maps, and I'm at 40 pages so far, and I'm not verbose. It's a lot of content. What if I rescue the kid? What if I don't rescue the kid? That's what everybody wants."
The project is large in scope, with many moving parts. Fargo is pleased with the team that's assembled, but is the schedule on track? "It's still too early to tell," Fargo admitted. "I'm very happy with the team; we have three or four ace programmers and the designers are having trouble keeping up with them. The design is the biggest short-term concern. We've just signed up three other writers."
The overall result is that Fargo believes the project is achieving his goals. "I think it's going to be one of the densest, deepest RPGs ever; just the cause and effect is fantastic. Ultimately, that's what everybody wants. That's what made GTA so great, it's what made Sim City so great - when you do something it has an effect, and things hold together smartly."
