Wasteland Unleashed At MGS
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

InXile Entertainment's Wasteland 1 - The Original Classic is available now for purchase and download at Mac Game Store. The classic post apocalyptic RPG inspired the development of Wasteland 2, and puts players in charge of a squad of rangers in the year 2087, struggling to survive 89 years after a nuclear war between the U.S. and the Soviet Untion laid waste to much of the Earth.

For the first time in over 20 years, we are heralding the return of a much loved piece of gaming history with the classic RPG, Wasteland!

Mutants. Again. Even more than there were last time: they seem to materialize out of the very grains of the radioactive desert sand. Venomous yellow eyes. The black gunmetal glint of Uzis as they close in for the kill. There's nowhere to run, and nothing to rely on but your MAC 17 machine gun. What a way to save the human race.

The year is 2087, eighty-nine years after an all out nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union turned vast swaths of the Earth into a hellish wasteland where survival is a daily struggle against thirst, hunger, radiation sickness, ravaging raiders, and mutants - always mutants. You are a Desert Ranger, one of a band of stalwart lawmen born from the remnants of a U.S. Army detachment who survived the nuclear holocaust by holing up in a maximum security prison. You may wear ragtag uniforms and carry make-shift weapons, but the Desert Rangers are the only law left in what was once the American southwest.

Now something more secretive and sinister than the usual roving bands of mutants and raiders is menacing humanity, and it's your job to investigate. Recruit the help you need, follow any leads you find, but beware. The wasteland is lawless desert and a lonely place, and the choices you make will shape the world around you. Better choose wisely. Your life depends on it.

Your life depends on it.

  • The godfather of the modern post-apocalyptic cRPG.
  • One of the first reactive and immersive worlds that delivered persistent consequences to player choices.
  • Featuring toggle-able modern updates such as new paragraph voice over, new music tracks and updated portraits. Play in classic mode to get the original experience.
  • Awarded "Adventure Game of the Year" in 1988 by Computer Gaming World.
  • Predecessor to the 20 year awaited sequel Wasteland 2 that is coming soon.
Requirements:
  • Mac OS X 10.6 or later
  • 1.2 GHz Intel Mac
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 100 MB HD Space
  • 64 MB VRAM
