It is a very good week for InXile Entertainment indeed: The indie studio raked in $3.12 million toward Wasteland 3, concluding a very successful crowdfunding campaign through the Fig platform. The original goal was $2.75 million, so hopefully this means that the studio has enough to make the game it envisioned and then some.
“The biggest difference between now and [Wasteland 2’s 2012 campaign] is that we have assembled far greater talent to make this next game,” CEO Brian Fargo wrote in the final hours of the campaign. “The depth of writing, visual effects, balancing and polish will be on a new level for inXile. I could not be more confident in the team. We will make you proud again.”
Wasteland 3 takes the post-apocalyptic RPG series to the cold frontier of Colorado and introduces cooperative multiplayer to the franchise for the first time.
