First Stretch Goal Announced!

One month down! One to go! It's been an incredible month for this campaign!

Thanks to all of you, the project is 136% funded with 31 days to go. Since we made our goal before the halfway point, we wanted something even more exciting to drive us forward in the second half. And we found it!

Chris Avellone (Senior Designer for Fallout: New Vegas) and Tim Cain (Lead Programmer of the original Fallout) have agreed to creatively come on board if we DOUBLE OUR BUDGET!

Tim and Chris are fans and supporters of our series, and needless to say, we're huge fans of their work. Having them attached would make the series even sweeter. Reaching our new $120k goal will allow us to expand the overall production of the project, which makes it worth bringing on these two talented gentlemen.

How exactly will Chris and Tim be involved? First, they'll be involved in the writing process. This includes input into the storyline, character development, creature interactions and scenery. Second, and probably our favorite part, they're both going to APPEAR in the series. Yes, bring out the acting shoes for these guys, because we're going to feature them on the screen. Hopefully, most of it doesn't end up on the cutting room floor.... (We're just kidding.)

A larger budget is also going to include more creatures, right? OF COURSE! You've been asking for Fallout creatures and we agree, but these critters aren't cheap! Even though our funding has been phenomenal, it still doesn't quite cover the cost of making creatures for film. Whether it's a suit worn by an actor, a puppet, visual effects, or a combination of all three, it's expensive and time consuming to have it done correctly. We'll take a good chunk of the new budget and put it toward feature creatures. We're even thinking of starting a poll to see which ones you'd like to see!

Location, Location, Location...Shooting in environments that resemble locations in Fallout isn't easy. Scouting locations takes a great deal of planning and shooting in them is brutal when you consider the terrain and temperature. We don't have the comfort that Hollywood-budget films have, but a larger budget does increase the opportunity of shooting in rugged, post- apocalyptic-looking areas.

These are just a few things that we'd like to do with a larger budget, and we want to know what else you'd like to see. Please share your thoughts with us in the comments below! Thanks!

      So what's the update? No uploads besides the Aperture Science stuff, which are awesome, but I am anxious for Nuka Break Season 2.

      Robots can be giant and mutated. If an AI is damaged and forced to salvage other machines to rebuild itself it is inherently a mutated form of its former physical self. If said additions to the robot's physical form increases its size dramatically it will become giant.

      Giant Mutated Robots!

      1,000 dollars per day. That definitely sounds manageable.

      I really wish there was a shirt with the art done by the guy who does Atomic Robo. Even as an optional $25 buy in, I bet you would pull in the funds needed to make that $120K stretch goal.

      Tim's face in that photo cracks me up. If he's half as talented as an actor as he is as a developer, we should be in for a great performance too :)

      This update gives me exuberant pleasure in mine loins!

      I love Fallout & I love you guys for bringing it to live action. My only regret about this situation is being under employed, & thusly only being able to pledge small. Reguardless thank you guys for having the motivation to take a dream & make it reality, I admire what you guys have done. The best of wishes for your futures. God speed.

    9. Josef Wurzinger on

      Tim Cain and Chris Avellone on board working with you guys would be amazing! I pledged immediately after I heard the news.

    10. Randy Snow on

      Rhyolite, Nevada might be a good shooting location.

    11. Sean O'Connell on

      Ok I just doubled my pledge, so I'm looking forward to seeing some great stuff that I know you can pull off. Best of luck!

      This update made me bump my pledge. Good work guys.

    13. Abdulrahman A. Al-shebel on

      YES! We need to reach 120K now...!!! =D

    14. Travis Richey on

      Now THAT is how creators should be involved with Fan projects :-) Great news, guys!

    15. Archon on

      OMG !
      MCA AND TIM CAIN ?! Really ?!

      For those who will found this hard to believe, Zack really know them :…

      I'd like to first thank Wayside for making this excellent, true-to-the-universe webseries and me and my friends really appreciate your work and dedication. The direction so far I feel has been great and seeing weapons and characters stay true to form is really rewarding. Of course we would all like to see Deathclaws and Supermutants, but robots are a huge part of the world and seem like they might be easier to work in with the budget constraints. I think seeing a vault might be very interesting, or the Kings gang! Whatever you choose to do, I'm sure it will be brilliant and fans like myself will further fund your project as you keep us updated! Fingers Crossed for Tim and Chris!

      Can't wait untill the second season guys!!! I will pledge more money next month!
      I think it would be awesome if you guys somehow put the New Vegas strip into an epsode!
