    That's pretty neat. I like that he has Klingon Academy, that game was fantastic, they even got Chang's actor to come in and shoot a bunch of scenes, and he nailed it.

    Logic would dictate that a producer produces a product of some type.
    And they do, they produce their names in the credits.

    Producers exist on a 2D axis of logistics and money. Most producers we hear about in game dev are handling logistics, it's usually in movies you see the title Executive Producer which means they helped bankroll the venture. Given the Fargo family $$$, I bet he was more financially involved (at least initially) then most game producers. No clue on the logistics front.

    Nobody cares about that shit. People care if he had made a single good game,not about what he had played.

    Brian Fargo is claiming that he legally purchased the right to use that Vincent Segrelles artwork for the box cover of (and an adverisement for) the original release of The Demon's Forge? Later re-releases, still on the Apple II, used different artwork for the box cover, and I had assumed this was yet another example of an early computer game ripping off art that it did not have the rights to use.

    It could also have been a license for only 1000 usages or whatever.

    Fargo looks like he had been punched in the left eye in that photo. Look at all the blood under his skin, and the pattern. That’s a mostly healed shiner or he had a weird skin condition when he was younger.

    Who can they get with these requirements, considering there are no good RPGs in the last 10 years*? Only shitheads that precipitated the decline we're in.

    Matt Wallace, the writer who did WL3 novella Ironclad and some additional work on the actual game:



    He's also a retired professional wrestler apparently.

    So narrative team of this AAA(A) RPG be like:
    • BrotherNone as Lead
    • Chad Moore likely do some writing as Creative Director. Probably Jason Aderson too
    • Nathon Long, Rosa Dachtler as Seniors
    • This Matt Wallace guy in some capacity

    Nathan Long is 71 years old and hasn't written anything decent in his life. Zyklon Beekers isn't even a writer. Jason Anderson is the only name that sounds like a competent person, but he's not enough in this group of hacks. This list already reads like an obituary to this game. It's dead.

    Yeah, I don't see this ending up well, Inxile and Obsidian should've stuck with making medium-budget RPGs, instead of attempting to make a big AAA blockbuster with no expertise nor experience in making a mass market product in the last decade. My prediction is that both Obsidians Skyrim killer and whatever this is will get marred in development hell, and in a few years Phil Spencer will quietly take Fargo and Feargus out the back door and put them out of their misery.
