    Cain and Boyarsky's The Outer Worlds?

    Where did I hear the word "Spacer" the last time? Hmm, Mass Effect, I guess?

    Reminiscent of the Arcanum artwork.

    Fallout rips off Wasteland. Bioshock rips off Fallout. Space Jam With Cain & BoyBoy rips off Bioshock.

    They can rips off even Titanfall or Destiny if they want, but do a fucking decent RPG, is it too much to ask for?

    @Mr Fish Sorry I didn't get it, but you were not the only one calling it Bioshock (I was reading the comments under the twitter post).

    Would be cool if this is like Fallout but instead of a resource war the US and China went into space and colonized the planets and moons of the Solar System.
    I have often thought about such a concept. Basically Buck Rogers but with some darker undertones once you look at the gee whiz space stuff.

    Somehow I get the sense that the backstory for the game will be vaguely Fallout-esque and follow from New Vegas's outlined space colonization plans from Mr. House.
