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.
