About the mod

"When mutants kill and destroy all that matters in your life---What can you do? As the last hope of a dead town, will you seek justice for the dead and help for the survivors? Or will you lose your way in this big nasty world that's waiting for you? Can anyone, for that matter, good or evil, survive for long in a world where most problems are solved at the end of a knife or with a burst of gunfire?"

Elko is a peaceful community in western Nevada, founded by the Chosen One about two decades ago. You have lived in Elko all your life. To your townsfolk, you are known as Cassidy's kid or the Orphan, although none of these denominations are exactly accurate: Cassidy isn't your biological father, and your parents may not be necessarily dead.

After a vicious attack by a group of savage mutants, you flee with the survivors of the town to a small bunker. A few straggling attackers follow you, which you bravely fight off. Once the battle is over though, Cassidy suffers a heart attack and is in critical condition soon afterwards.

The game progresses from there with three main objectives: find a cure for Cassidy, discover why the mutants attacked Elko and some of the surrounding towns, and discover who your real parents were.

As with Fallout 2, the mod can be completed in many different ways. Combat can be both embraced and avoided depending on how you want to play the mod. Developing skills that are seldom used may yield rewards later in the game.

Development

The project has been running since 2004, sometimes faster, sometimes slower. Back when the venture started, Modding fallout was still in its formative stages and so the amount of work was very limited but thanks to a thriving fallout community we have been able to do almost anything with the game that we have wished.

All that's left to say is please be patient. This is a free project, like all mods, and all our members have many other things going on in their personal lives. We will be releasing a demo on Xmas 2011.

Demo released

News 0 comments

As promised, the new demo of Mutants Rising is live now!

The demo comprises the complete first location of the game, with all of its quests and characters. It also includes several of the new game features we introduced, most notably the overhauled healing system. We hope the demo will give you a good taste of what the mod is going to look like in the end, and that you will like it.

To get your hands on the demo, you can either download the Smart Installer version, or the Manual Install pack:
* Smart Installer - Download the file on your hard drive and double click on it. When the Installer window appears, choose "Install" and follow the instructions on screen.

Links:
Download

* Manual Install - If the Installer doesn't work for you for some reason, or if you're already familiar with installing Fallout 2 mods, you can try the Manual Install. Download the ZIP file into your Fallout 2 installation directory and unpack it there. A new folder should appear, named "MutantsRising". Go inside it and read the readme for the remaining installation details.

We are in the process of uploading the files to Moddb as well. We're anxious to have your opinions, so make sure to check out our forums on NMA and on our website, so you can leave comments. Should you find any bugs or have any questions, please post them in their respsctive threads on the forum too. Have a good time with Mutants Rising!

We kind of neglected our moddb page as it's a pain in the *** to update. To everyone: Check our home page for the updates you have missed.

Good american voice actors, would you settle for a mediocre american, who took a few summer acting classes, and wants to be mentioned in the credits?
