I tend to get the same questions on Twitter and I thought it better to set up a link with FAQ than to either ignore the questions or answer them repeatedly. I will expand the answers here as I see trends.

Q. Is it true that you invented Pong, fought in the MMA and once found a sunken treasure?
A. Boy if I had nickel every time I got this question. I certainly used my allowance on Pong, fought publishers like I was in the MMA and dug my yard up looking for gold but it sadly isn’t true.

Q. Can I play Wasteland 1 somehow?
A. EA controls the right to the original Wastealnd game so I cannot offer it by itself, however I have recently struck a reasonable deal with them to allow me to include it as part of Wasteland 2.

Q. Will the Android version of Bard’s Tale contain the original trilogy?
A. YES! They will not all be available at launch but will come out sequentially for no extra charge. Long live the Bard!

Q. Is Wasteland 2 going to be turn based? Will it have humor? etc
A. I created a vision document that goes into much detail discussing the sensibilites of the game. Please download it here and read it. It gives great insight as to how I approach game development.

Q. What formats is Wasteland 2 coming out on and when?
A. We are in production on a PC, Linux and Mac version and are scheduled to come out in late 2013. We have no plans yet for console or tablet as we are staying very focused on getting all production materials complete. We can consider other formats later but this is just not something we want to take up any of our bandwidth thinking about.

  1. Is there going to be a version that doesn’t require steam to use ? I can not use steam due to only being able to get internet via satellite and it doesn’t play well with steam.

  3. Perched on the edge of my seat I often want to yell out ‘Can’t you see
    he loves you. The gel from a dentist will be far more powerful and the trays will be
    custom made, allowing for better comfort and higher efficacy of the gel.
    There is no beta-test in the world that can simulate how the game
    behaves at the drop and the masses put teeth in it.

  9. Will InXile Entertainment allow Let’s Play videos of Wasteland 2 on Youtube or claim copyrights banning or profiting from the videos created with Wasteland 2 game content in them? I am asking because I was planning on making a Let’s play with game commentary included or a first look at the game with a game review.

  10. OMG I hope we really do get Wasteland 1 as an add in bonus. It slipped under my radar when I was younger as I was too busy getting my rear handed to me by the Bard’s Tale trilogy :-) . Speaking of, Bard’s Tale 3 was the FIRST computer rpg i had ever beaten! Ah, memories. Too bad it’s only going to be on IOS and Android :-( . I’d love to be able to play them on PC again for nostalgia. I saw pics of Wasteland and it reminded me of another old school end-of-the-world rpg by SSI – Roadwar 2000. I LOVED that game. Dang i’m jonesing BAD to play some of this stuff now :-(

    • Remember when it was a BIG deal to finish a game like Bard’s Tale or Might and Magic, Zork, I could go on for a while.

      Most games now have meaningless achievements(I’m looking at you Steam) or completion percentages. Games used to be hard, now if we get 20hrs of play we are lucky.

    Where can I get information?

  13. I came late to the party. I only recently realized that Wasteland 2 was to be a reality after almost 25 years of holding out hope. Since I missed the backer stage, will it still be possible to somehow get a boxed version? I still have my original C64 box from the first, and it would be nice to make it a pair.

    • Hey,

      I’m not sure if you visited the website’s Store yet, but if you donate 60$, you will receive the boxed version of Wasteland 2 and many other fancy goodies.


  14. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.
