Fallout 3: Choose Your Wasteland (Now Public!)

7 posts in this topic

This is a series I teased at earlier using Fallout 3 in a 'Choose Your Own Adventure' format, like those books back in the day. I'd really love to hear some feedback, especially on 'What works/doesn't work'.

13 videos after about 3 weeks, the first 4 segments of Choose Your Wasteland are completed!

 

Features:

Main Quest - This series will follow the Main Quest (so far) because it's already going to be around 17 segments... Multiply that by 6 and that's how many videos there would probably be.

Choose Gender - Pretty sure it's a good idea to include female protagonists as well.

Archetypes - The player/viewer may choose 1 of 3 archetypes, between Vagrant, Technician, and Annihilator.

Sensible Characters - Viewers won't have to worry about stats/attributes/skills. Instead, the Archetype will simply DO whatever would make sense for that character!

Survival - I plan to include scenes of hunger, rest, hydration, death, massive radiation, crippling injuries and other fun stuff. This is an important aspect to the wasteland that was barely touched on in gameplay, being a vault dweller your whole life would affect your ability to know how to survive in the wastes, wouldn't it?

New Routes - Some of the archetypes will take different routes depending on their role, some of which weren't in the game. (hint: pick Vagrant)

Interface - I'm trying for an easy to follow Pipboy interface for viewers to keep track with, you'll see its infancy in segment 4. Speaking with NPC's won't be filled up with dialogue windows either, their name will still be there though.

Mods - No, not God mods. Textures, weather effects, equippable tools (for Technician), Ironsights, things that make it visually appealing and complement the story for the character.

Cinematic - I'm really trying for as much immersion as possible while maintaining a theme of survival and tracking down Dad/James.

Hey thanks bro, saw your Maia interview earlier, that's freaking cool. But it would be a dangerous thing for me to play :P.

Cheers dude. Yeah, that game has a hell of a lot of potential, looking forward to seeing how Simon gets on adding features to it.
