    RPS alerted us to something slightly interesting yesterday, so I will now share that here for you.



    Only time will tell if a fancy new name will bear fruit, but it definitely sounds better.

    That looks neat. Gives a bit more S.T.A.L.K.E.R.ish vibes than Falloutish, but neat anyway.

    I never liked this "Project Brazil" name. Also I loath the anime style hair. Can't watch the video right now, but I guess it is still in?

    What was the problem with the Project Brazil name?

    I mean, at the moment it makes no sense, but when the project started it made sense. :aiee:

    I just thought it sounded stupid. Likely because it makes me think of Brazil, which I do not connect to Fallout at all.

    Nobody really understood why it was called Project Brazil when it had nothing to do with Brazil.

    Fallout New California seems more appropriate since it's literally set in New California.

    I always thought is was an allusion to the dulldrums of vault life, or the juxtaposition of a happy upbeat song with the violence of the wasteland etc. I was also thinking they were fans of the Gilliam film of the same name and used the song either to set the tone or just fan wankery.

    That's because people are dumb and never heard of the 80's Dystopian Brazil movie (which is one of the most highly regarded movies ever), which has nothing to do with the country either. This project kinda started based on the movie, but then it evolved into something different.

    EDIT:
    People even voted to keep the name back then. So I guess many knew why it was called that.

    Finally managed to watch the video and check out the latest screenshots. Looks pretty good, actually. Still not a fan of the anime hair, though. I just don't find it visually pleasing at all.
