Brian Fargo has dreamt of his vision for 20 years. He was involved with the best RPGs of all time and finally wanted to make a true succesor to Wasteland, the game that later spawned the Fallout universe.
But only now, with the help of fan-funding via kickstarter, is he able to make the game that he and the fans want - Wasteland 2. And they have given him over 2.5 million dollars already.
The financing drive is still going higher – See the link for Fargo and Chris Avellone (Baldur's Gate) talking with the fans about what makes great RPGS and the Publishers' Reactions to Wasteland 2's huge success - A game that none of them wanted to finance.
