Wasteland 2 Video

An update on Kickstarter has the latest on Wasteland 2, the upcoming RPG sequel in the works at inXile entertainment. This includes word that the game's first developer diary is now available, though this is only for their backers who are in for $30.00 or more, a sign of strange times for the game industry when you are creating marketing materials exclusively for people who have already bought the game. On a more egalitarian front, they also now offer all visitors a new video that runs over 18 minutes, featuring a demo run-through of the game's prison level. Here's word:

This area was not built purely for demoing purposes and it is a straight video capture. While the level will be further polished and improved (we’re missing a bunch of sounds among other things), it gives you a sense of the final game flow. The level was the winner of an internal competition process (as mentioned last update). This is only a tiny fraction of the game which is very hard to show in a 20 minute update. It represents about 1/3rd of the prison map and isn’t even one of the larger levels, so you can imagine it can be tricky for us to share enough without too many spoilers or overwhelming you.

Another particular focus of the video is showing the game’s progression, which highlights the back-and-forth communication with you, our backers. From the renaming of the characteristics into the CLASSIC acronym to our multiple iterations on the UI based on very direct but very useful feedback from our fans (and it is still customizable to your tastes, for example you can configure the text window depending on how much you want it to show).
