The Original Wasteland RPG Will Come To Linux

By - | Views: 14,267

You may not remember but we asked the Wasteland 2 guys back in august about Wasteland 1 & 2 release information for Linux, we now know the original will come to Linux too!

Brian Fargo tweeted yesterday to give people the good news:

Did I mention that the re-release of Wasteland 1 would also be on OSX and Linux?

About Wasteland

Wasteland is a critically acclaimed post-apocalyptic role-playing video game first published by Electronic Arts in 1988.[1] The game was designed by Brian Fargo, Michael A. Stackpole, Ken St. Andre and Alan Pavlish, and programmed by Pavlish for Interplay Productions. Wasteland is set in a world decades after nuclear holocaust, which has turned Earth into the "wasteland" where survival is the main objective. The game's setting and concept would become the basis for Interplay's later game, Fallout, which itself would extend into a successful series.

I didn't expect that to be honest. Good news. Looking forward to playing that too - Wasteland and Shadowruns were two of the first projects I helped Kickstart!

You obviously don't know what abandonware means... Anyway the new release has a number of improvements over the original. Personally I'd appreciate not having to pull out the booklet for the flavor text.

I do know what it means, but the simpel fact is the game is available on many of the abandonware sites thus my comment stands.

I like when a developer brings their previous games to the same platform, it´s much better to have the opportunity to play both games on Linux than only the second one, awesome.

Indeed, it does bother me when we get only one game in a series. I appreciate Fargo and company putting in the effort to bring us the full cannon.

Bumadar, you're confused.  Abandonware has never been legal.  Some people don't consider it unethical because there are no legal alternatives for acquiring a particular product, but the publisher could still sue.  Now that Wasteland 1 is for sale again, any ethical defense is lost, and downloading it from an abandonware site is no different from downloading GTA V off a warez site.
