Wasteland creator Brian Fargo has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund Wasteland 2, the sequel to the PC classic Wasteland. This makes Wasteland the latest game developer to capitalize on the online fundraising service after Tim Schafer found success with his Double Fine Adventure Kickstarter campaign.
So, do you want a Wasteland sequel? Well then get up and do something about it! The Wasteland 2 Kickstarter has gone live, and it is currently accepting pledges towards the project. Now, I suppose you don't literally have to get up, but it couldn't hurt.
At the time of this post, more than $150,000 has already been pledged. There are 34 days left to reach the $900,000 goal required to earn the project it's funding.
But fans of the 1988 PC classic can do more than just support Wasteland 2 financially. The team, led by Wasteland and Fallout executive producer Brian Fargo, is also looking for creative input from its loyal fanbase. From the Wasteland 2's Kickstarter page:
"With your collective vision, the game that was the godfather to the popular Fallout series will become a reality. Not only will you fund the development, but you’ll have a voice in how the game goes together. We will have forums up for design discussion and soliciting your ideas for what will make Wasteland 2 rock."
Also on board to work on the project are Alan Pavlich and Mark Stackpole, who were the primary designers on Wasteland; Mark Morgan, who did the music for Fallout 1 & 2; Jason Anderson, co-creator of Fallout; and concept artist Andree Wallin.

If all that isn't enough to get you to pledge, there are a wide variety of incentives being offered. For example, a $15 pledge earns you a DRM-free digital download of the game, plus a unique skill for your party, while a $10,000 pledge gets you an invitation to a private party hosted by the team. There's plenty more in between, but some of the larger rewards are limited.
So if you want to see this game happen, then go make it happen.
