Wasteland 1 on GOG.com

GOG.com announces the release of a "slightly updated" edition of Wasteland 1, the classic post-apocalyptic RPG. Here's the blast from the past:

Back in 1988 Wasteland 1 - The Original Classic (or just Wasteland back then) took the fresh memory of living in constant fear during the Cold War, reached for the aesthetics of the Mad Max movies, added solid cRPG mechanics, and offered gamers an experience that would soon inspire a whole gaming sub-genre. Long before Mr. Ron Perlman announced to the world that "war never changes" in the iconic opening sequence to Fallout, the post-apocalyptic grim future was a vision already present and persistent in the minds of gamers. That was mostly because of Wasteland. The open-ended free-roam gameplay, paired with incredibly rich and suggestive setting made a lasting impression on everyone who dared to visit the nuclear desert. With challenging difficulty level and great variety of NPCs, quests, and locations, this fantastic title is still a blast to play!

I already unlocked it on Steam and tends to crash a whole lot more than the old DOSBox version I've been playing for years.
They are still using DOSBox for this version.

I know. But for some reason this updated version is less stable. Even Brother None acknowledged it and they are working on a fix.
