As one of the founding developers of the Fallout franchise, designer Tim Cain said that he is intrigued by the upcoming projects based on the series, but also expressed some concerns in the process. In an interview with EDGE, Cain said that he looks to Bethesda's Fallout 3 as "a consumer, not a developer".
"I just want to play it and enjoy it," Cain said regarding Fallout 3. Cain adds that he spoke to the developer at Bethesda Softworks regarding their new direction to the series. "I do like what I've seen about Fallout 3," he said. "It's not necessarily the direction I would've gone, but I can tell you I have my Fallout 3 pre-ordered."
Cain also mentioned that the upcoming projects, including the MMO, may deviate from the original game's feel. "The biggest problem I have with expanding the game is that the original games were designed to make you feel like you were one of the last people left on Earth," he said. "I'm curious about how they'll handle making the game not feel too crowded--making it feel like there's not much life left out there after the war." Fallout 3 lands this October 28 for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC platforms.
