Brian Fargo’s (Wasteland, Baldur’s Gate, Fallout) kickstarter project, formed to get Wasteland 2 off the ground, has been one of the success stories of the medium. Looking to raise $900,000 USD, the fund currently stands at around $1,700,000 USD.
Today, Fargo’s company inXile has announced that an agreement has been reached with Obsidian Entertainment to bring them on board with the Wasteland 2 project; but only if the fund reachs $2,100,000 USD.
The agreement would benefit the project in two ways. Firstly, Obsidian’s Chris Avellone (who worked with Fargo at Interplay/Black Isle) would “work with our team on the design and writing of the game”. In addition, “a host of tools that Obsidian has created … will help us get assets into the game faster”.
All programming work will remain with inXile.
