“Ok internet, do your thing, make this into an animated YouTube video or something,” Twitter user TurnBasedCarl pleaded. “Wouldn’t that be a treat,” Fargo replied in the thread.
The sentiment was the same across the board: despite not being picked up by the targeted production company, could this still become a thing?
You just know someone out there has already started putting together a YouTube version of this

The 107-page pilot script, written by Adam Gyngell and Fred Armesto, and dated October 29, 2020, spotlights an area of the Arizona desert untouched by a recent nuclear war. Familiar names like Angela Deth and Mad Dog introduce us to a story filled with the gritty humor that we’ve come to love from the game series.
The original Wasteland released by Fargo’s Interplay in 1988 with the sequel coming out during one of the most successful Kickstarters of the time in 2014. Wasteland 3 came out in 2020 and the original game was remastered earlier in 2020 to celebrate a late 30th anniversary.
Considering the fact that the Fallout series will be enjoying its own TV show on Amazon Prime sometime soon (we hope), one based on the game that technically started the Fallout franchise would make sense. Or it could be completely redundant. But that’s never stopped similar shows in the past.
At this point, all we fans can do is wait for that YouTube version to release and hope it turns into something more. After all, it worked for Fallout.
