I have a confession to make: I’m not a Fallout 2 guy. As much as I love Fallout 1 and New Vegas, the second game’s pop culture reference-filled and salacious style has always grated on me. But maybe my relationship with Fallout 2 isn’t doomed. Maybe I just need a new perspective. Literal.

The Fallout 2 Remake 3D (opens in new tab) (through PCGamesN (opens in new tab)) from Polish developer Jonasz Osmenda offers just that. The mod transforms the opus of Black Isle into disturbingly direct first-person and uses the resources of the original game to recreate environments such as Klamath, Arroyo and the Temple of Trials in great detail. Of course those are assets made for a late 90s isometric game, so basically everything becomes an inextricable mess of pixels when you get close to it, but it’s nice to see familiar, post-nuclear faces like ‘woman in jacket’ and again ‘bent bald man’.
