Will Chris Avellone be joining for WL3?

Post by Ghamarro » May 8th, 2017, 2:40 pm

Hiya,

Will Chris Avellone be joining for WL3? I remember him being a stretch goal with WL2, and since I'm a big fan of his writing & game design, I thought it would rock to see him aboard on WL3. What is the general opinion from WL2 players on his work on WL2; were you guys satisfied, disappointed or just meh? Cheers.
Pronto!

The Wikipedia article for Wasteland 2 lists him as one of the designers, but apart from that I have no info on what was specifically his handiwork in the game.

Not sure what Chris Avellone did in WL2 either, but he is a great writer/designer. :)

He worked on one of the areas, but I don't remember which one.

He did Ag. Center. Don't remember if Highpool too, probably not.

I feel like he's wasted talent, unless included as a core dev, preferably involved with gameplay and narrative.

Maybe he can finally finish that WL2 novel he's been working on...

In case you were wondering, he is working on the novella. It's in the editing phase. I am not sure what the ETA is.
