InXile hopes to revive Van Buren "one of these days."

Yep, you read that right, I woke up to that headline and had to rub my eyes but apparently Brian Fargo trademarked Van Buren about a year ago and considering that he's been on a crusade to revive Wasteland and Bard's tale? I can see this potentially happening...

This is pretty awesome, considering that this year people have Fallout 4 and Project Brazil to look forward to and now this?

Please let it be so...
The sun beyond the mountain glows
The yellow river seaward flows
You can enjoy a grander sight
By climbing to a greater height

I have run out of places to climb. I will abandon this body and take to the air. We will leave twin vapor trails in the air, white lines etched into these rocks. I am the aerial. In my passing, I will send news to each and every star.

Charlie is yelling @barit0wned
PC: A spider laid eggs inside my body and I need to get them out before they hatch
DM: You'll need the spider's permission first...

I've backed every one of inXile's kickstarters so far.

Really looking forward to Torment.
All right, I’ve been thinking, when life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade! Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man whose gonna burn your house down – with the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

yeah, inXile makes some good games. I really like Wasteland 2 and I'm also preparing my body for Torment. I hope they can make Van Buren
But it'll help

I got Wasteland 2 in the GOG sale, it's pretty awesome so I'd like to see what they can do with Van Buren.

Before Fallout 3 was revealed, I was hoping for an isometric strategy game like Van Buren. After playing New Vegas, I'm not sure that style of play will work with the masses, but I'd sure as hell like to see Van Buren released in a more finished form than the tech demo that was leaked.
