Through the Aftermath’s 50th episode talks with inXile CEO Brian Fargo and Wasteland 2 writer Nathan Long.
Through the Aftermath’s 50th episode podcast talks with Brian Fargo and Wasteland 2 writer Nathan Long. It’s a really information-dense interview and well worth the listen, but also has some spoilers. They talk inspirations, writing post-apocalyptic stories, differences between Wasteland and Wasteland 2, carry-overs from Wasteland and nods fans will recognize. Nathan describes the story transition from Wasteland to Wasteland 2, Brian reveals one of LA’s cults and talks about playing around with the endgame depending on what you do in the game. Brian also talks about the beta and how inXile will gather feedback from it.
Brian Fargo is the original founder of Interplay and creator of such classic games as Bard’s Tale, Neuromancer, and our favorite: Wasteland.
Nathan Long is an author and screenwriter probably most famous for his series of novels based on the Warhammer universe. He’s currently the lead writer on Wasteland 2.
With the sequel in the works, we figured it would be a great time to sit down with Brian and Nathan and discuss their post-apoc influences and the game itself. Not only that, but Brian also throws down an exclusive for us relating to W2’s end-game, or at least Brian’s version of an end-game.
