    Many will recognize Van Buren as the original canceled Fallout 3 (http://fallout.gamepedia.com/Van_Buren). A team of fans using the original design documents, developer interviews and forum posts as sources of Van Buren information have been working to resurrect (or erect?) the title and are presently 40% finished.

    "Van Buren: A Fallout RPG Adventure is a remake of Interplay's canceled Fallout 3 by fans. You are the Prisoner in this - the biggest ever - Fallout game. We are using original design documents, developer interviews and forum posts as info sources. We're looking for contributors so feel free to contact us. The game will require pre-installed copies of Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics. WARNING: This page contains SPOILERS!"

    Probably the closest my childhood dream of a sequel to FO2 coming true. I don't want to get my hopes up yet, but this is the best FO news I've read in some time.

    Already covered in the other thread... unlikely to happen. Plus its developed in the Fonline engine.

    so, basically is this a fallout 2 total conversion graphics and assets wise?

    Yes, it is based on art style of Fallout 1 and 2. Some areas use art never before seen in a Fallout game so there's LOTS of new assets - our Alpha is over 9 GB in size.
