I’m Brian Fargo, CEO of inXile entertainment. Some of you may know me as the founder of Interplay Entertainment and the producer of the original Fallout. When we got the opportunity to talk to you several months back about Wasteland 2 coming to PS4, we leapt at the chance and were blown away with the support that we saw from PlayStation fans around the world.
I really get a kick out of the fact that I am now considered an “indie” again after all these years. I have been making games for nearly 30 years, having built a top-five PC publishing house called Interplay around such major franchises as The Bard’s Tale, Wasteland, Baldur’s Gate, Fallout, Descent and more. In the early days, I developed games for other companies and moved up the food chain to become a publisher so that I could make games “my way.” And here I sit, again readying our first major release in Choplifter HD as a digital publisher and having created the game the way I wanted. Our company tagline at Interplay was “By Gamers. For Gamers” and it are those same values we used in creating Choplifter HD.
Choplifter was a very important game when it was originally released back in 1982 and achieved #1 status at the time.
