Problem is: what is Fallout Resurrection?
Fallout 1.5: Resurrection is a mod for Fallout 2, with a completely new story taking place in the Fallout universe. The plot will take place in the time between Fallout 1 and 2, east of the future NCR, therefore roughly in New Mexico. Thus in the game you won’t find the original, but entirely new, creative, locations, which gave us more freedom with the story.
The player’s character wakes up, heavily wounded, in a dark cave, not knowing how it got there, or who it is. Thus you start from a scratch, searching for your past, which is darker than it might seem on the first sight… We won’t give away any more details about the story, not to spoil your game experience. Though you can count on surprising twists in plot and unexpected finale.
As big fans of Fallout we try to take the best from all Fallouts. Easter Eggs and other jokes, with which Fallout 2 was literally overfilled, will retreat to the background and instead, the great atmosphere of decadence and hopelessness, which we all so much enjoyed in the first Fallout, will return. The world is still chaotic, with only small independent communities, which only maintain trade relations. It’s an unfriendly place, where the law is on the side of whoever has a better gun.
The name Resurrection was chosen for two reason. Firstly, resurrection is related to the main character, which at the beginning practically rises from the dead, and secondly, it’s a resurrection of the good old Fallout. We don’t want to add too many new things into the game, or even re-do the whole system. Our aim is to bring this classic back in its original form. Almost everyone remembers the feeling when they first played Fallout. Until you completed the game, you kept going through interesting locations full of fascinating things and even after several plays you kept finding new things. Players could really get into such a game, and that’s exactly the kind of a game we want to create.
Dear RPG Codex,
I would like to inform you about our project called Fallout 1.5: Resurrection. It's a modification for Fallout 2 (yes, for that old game) with a completely new story taking place in the Fallout universe. Simply said, it's like new old-school Fallout, emphasizing multiple approaches to quest solving and various styles of gameplay. Fallout 1.5: Resurrection will be released in next few days, on July 15, 2016.
Starting out as an enthusiastic idea based on our wish to create our own Fallout game, we ended up working on it for over 10 years in our spare time, and released it in 2013 in Czech (our native language), to critical acclaim. After that we worked two-and-a-half years on the English translation so that the English-speaking world could finally enjoy our game as well.
