Fallout: New York

This was a midterm project for my Fandom class at ITP; the goal was to get a fan community to engage in a fan activity. We chose the popular video game “Fallout” – which at the time had plenty of speculation as to where their next game would be set. We started a campaign to garner support in getting the game to be set in New York City, including submitting original and inspired content as well as prompting discussions in existing fan communities. Ultimately the next game was set in Boston, but the project did gather more interest than we expected in the short lifetime of the assignment.
