According to a tweet from Interplay founder Brian Fargo, Wasteland 2 will begin its search for funding via Kickstarter tomorrow.

If you don’t know what Wasteland is, allow me to inform you. Wasteland was a Post-Apocalyptic Role-Playing Game that was published in 1988. The plot dealt with the after effects of a devastating nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union. The player controls a skilled team of Desert Rangers whom you guide through the desert Wasteland and ruined cities, all the while encountering all manner of unsavory survivors and horrifying mutants. The game was pretty damn popular at the time and was the direct inspiration for another Interplay title by the name of Fallout. You may have heard of that one.
I’m pretty excited for this project and can’t wait to throw some money at it. All we can hope is that Wasteland 2’s boxart if half as cool as the original’s.
