A Cajun mutant? I can dig it.
Recently the original developers of Fallout, yes the original and hard as nails Fallout that started it all, took to Reddit to engage in a Q&A (or an AMA if you want to call it that) with fans of the series. Both Scott Campbell and Rusty Buchert took time out to interact with the fans as well as give them some personal insight into where they want to see the Fallout Universe go next.
For example, Scott Campbell said that he thinks Florida would be well suited to the Fallout game world because of the swamps, saying “Uh… how about Florida! Mutant aligators! Swamp hillbilly raiders on fan boats!” While he first suggest Russia, he remembered the recent Metro Series and move on to Australia before remembering Mad Max as well.
Rusty however went for something more atmosphere driven, instead going for New Orelans, he says “For me Naw’lins… Cajun Cannibals, incursions by the Alamo Brigade, the Disciples of Baron Samehdi, and nobody ever comes back from Shreveport.”
The developers also believe that Betheda have done a terrific job with keeping the world feeling distinctly “Fallout.” Scott also shared some of the inspirations behind developing the first Fallout. “The Road Warrior, the pencil-and-paper RPG Gamma World, and of course Wasteland. I still love all three to this day,” he said.
Where would you like to see the next Fallout take place?
