This is what Fallout 3 would've been if the rights weren't sold to Bethesda.

Damn it. I got all excited there, but it is just the tech demo. BTW there is a Russian mod to make VB in FO2, so keep your fingers crossed.

yes I know, and I wish to get out what fallout would and maybe should have been. I have no intention to seize credit, only to expose the REAL fallout 3.

This game is also known as Van Buren, it was developed by the team who created Fallout and Fallout 2, i.e. Black Isle Studios. It has been never finished and all that ever leaked outside the development facilities was a tech demo which can show you how the game should looks like in general. You can find the tech demo on the net and download it.

Now, I seriously ask myself why this has a profile on ModDB. It is a tech demo, there is no code source, no tools to support modding, nothing, nada, zero. If there was the slightest chance to do anything with Van Buren, trust me - I would do it a long time ago. Like this, it has been only a bitter reminder of what may have had happened with the Fallout 3 as it was originally meant to be (and not turning it into an Oblivion mod).

All I can presume is that someone, according to the profile information pretty uninformed, had a dream where Van Buren was resurrected. I have no intention to insult anyone, but when I say uninformed, then I mean it (there is "Single & Multiplayer" in the profile, while Van Buren was strictly a single player game; referring to the tech demo and label it as a game; call for modding and extensions when there are no means to do so etc.)
