As we approach E3, studios start hyping their games and we start hearing little pieces about games on the way. This is certainly the case for inXile Entertainment. Over the past year, we’ve seen inXile release the latest installment in their hit, turn-based RPG series, Wasteland. They have also been very busy hiring and a number of juicy details have been made available in recent job listings.
Job reviews have shown that the title will be a role-playing game, so there is no doubt that they will incorporate their world-class touch into the realm. The other real questions are what type of environment will this game take place in and what type of RPG will it be? For answers to the first part, perhaps some of the more recent illustrations of Alexander Danilovac, the environmental artist for inXile Entertainment can shed light on this. The video below was made last year and seems to show a magical steampunk world. There is even a steam-powered wagon of 46 seconds.
Recently, the studio has started to increase the discussion and tips about their games. Last week, Brian Fargo tweeted “I know teasing is cruel, but I’m so excited about the visuals, design and writing for our next big game. Unfortunately, you can not see what I see for a long time. “But earlier today, inXile tweeted below in response to an Xbox tweet that potentially suggests their next title and answers the question of what type of RPG this game will be. Now, as Brian Fargo said, it may be a while before we see this game, but maybe some of the hype is referring to a little teaser coming next month (we can only hope!).
