Alright Wastelanders, we have arrived. We are finally stepping out of Vault 13 into the Wastes of Southern California. This is the game that started it all. It was released on 30 September 1997 and was developed by Black Isle Studios, a division of Interplay. It’s often been said that Fallout 1 was the spiritual successor to Wasteland, put out in 2987 by interplay. To be fair, though, wasteland got an actual sequel in 2015 with the crowd funded Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut.
