inXile Entertainment is a bit pleased to report that Wasteland 2, the crowd-funded sequel to the 1989 role-playing classic has generated more than US$1.5 million in sales in just four days since the game hit (virtual) shelves.
inXile founder Brian Fargo raised more than US$3 million to fund the game (US$2.9m via Kickstarter, and an extra US$110,000 afterward). Now the game’s out, he says:
We are ecstatic that the style of game we love so much has been embraced so well.
The post-apocalyptic RPG experience landed on Steam on Friday for PC, Mac and Linux, and headed straight to the top of the charts. Reviewers also seem pretty keen, with a Metacritic score of 80, based on early reviews.
