"Fallout" Game (late 1990s)
|"Fallout" is a PC-based
role playing game - rated "Mature" for animated
blood and gore. The box claims that: "This year's Fallout
Nuclear Survival Kit uses the latest technology to keep you alive and
kicking in the event of a nuclear disaster," but it follows
this with a warning that the "Contents do not provide protection from
radiation, real or implied." Hmmmm . . . no protection against
implied fallout, eh?
The plot: A group of 1000 people, holed up in an underground shelter, have had no contact with the outside world for some 80 years after a nuclear holocaust. The community's water recycler has failed and you have to go outside to find a replacement microchip for the recycler. Good luck.
