Brian Fargo is the founder of Interplay and one of the creators of Wasteland. He was also the head of the company when Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics were developed and published. While he did not work directly on any of the Fallout games, intros of all three of the aforementioned Fallout games include the words "Brian Fargo presents". He is now the producer of Wasteland 2.

Biography[edit | edit source]

In 1984 Fargo founded Interplay Entertainment, where he worked on most of Interplay's early games (e.g. Bard's Tale and Wasteland). He was the company's CEO until 2002, when majority control of Interplay was acquired by Titus Interactive, and he left the company and was replaced as CEO by Hervé Caen.

In 2003 Fargo founded a new company, InXile Entertainment. In October 2004, InXile released The Bard's Tale for PlayStation 2 and Xbox. A version for Microsoft Windows was released in early 2005.

In 2003, Fargo finally acquired the rights to Wasteland from Electronic Arts and development on Wasteland 2 started in 2012.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The character Faran Brygo in Wasteland is a reference to (and, except for the substitution of y for i, an anagram of) Brian Fargo.
  • Mad Dog Fargo, the Darwin Village NPC, is another reference. The text to ask the bartender about him is "Brian the Fist," referencing another Fargo-named character, this one from Bard's Tale.
  • Far Go Traders in the Hub in Fallout are a reference to Fargo.
