Obsidian to help develop Wasteland 2 if funding reaches $2.1 million

The RPG creators at Obsidian Entertainment have agreed to help develop Wasteland 2 if its Kickstarter campaign keeps growing, inXile Entertainment announced today.

Fallout: New Vegas developer Obsidian Entertainment has agreed to help develop Wasteland 2 if its Kickstarter campaign keeps growing, according to inXile Entertainment.

Obsidian's Chris Avellone, creator of the classic RPG Planescape: Torment, has agreed to work directly with inXile — a studio founded by similarly renowned RPG creator Brian Fargo — on the design and writing of Wasteland's long overdue sequel. There's a catch, though: The partnership will only take place if the game's Kickstarter campaign reaches $2.1 million dollars in the next 17 days. The fundraising total currently stands at around $1.6 million.

"Wasteland is one of my favorite RPGs of all time," Avellone said in a press release, "and when Brian asked if I wanted to work on the sequel, I jumped at the chance. While I've worked on Fallout 2 and Fallout: New Vegas, getting the chance to work on the spiritual predecessor to the Fallout franchise is a honor."

We can see how this "Monsters of RPG" partnership makes sense. It's like how chocolate and peanut butter are two great tastes that taste great together, only in this case, everything is peanut butter.
