Do you have time for a Nuka break?

Posted by Zumbs on May 10, 2012

The Sun was burning from a clear, blue sky. A small group of travelers make their way through the Mojave wasteland. One of the travelers – dressed in the dusty blue-yellow jumpsuit of an underground vault – was trailing behind, gasping for air. As they passed underneath an old billboard he fell to his knees. As he was about to give up, a man dressed in a red-black merc outfit gave a bottle to the vault dweller. In a raspy voice, he said “Here. Drink that.” The vault dweller took one glance at the glass bottle in his hand. The red label, the white writing, the brown liquid. A Nuka Cola!

In an instant, the vault dweller was on his feet, had opened the bottle and was greedily downing its content, as a warm glow covered his world and the radio played a happy tune. One happy moment to prepare him for the coming harshness of the wasteland…

Fallout Nuka Break LogoThis is the opening of the Fallout: Nuka Break fan film. The fan film has a good grasp of the atmosphere and humor of the Fallout series, not to mention lots of references to the games. As you will find out, the affliction of the hero is a direct reference to the original Fallout games.

The graphical expression is similar to Fallout 3 and New Vegas. As noted earlier, it is set in the Mojave wasteland, around the time of Fallout New Vegas. Personally, I enjoyed it a lot, and if you liked either of the games in the Fallout series, I expect you will as well.

The fan film is followed by a web series, and the creators are trying to raise money for a second season. So, if you like it, go support it!
