Sweet, sweet isometry.

InXile has generously released a huge whack of gameplay footage from Wasteland 2, a sequel to the classic CRPG that preceded Fallout. Despite running a more-than-successful crowdfunding campaign, inXile seems to be on track to deliver the game on schedule, quite unlike most of its peers, and is being fairly open about its development process – assuming you bought in already.
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).
