FO01 Overseer Cinematic.png
Overseer Jacoren, his first name having been shown in concept art, is the leader of Vault 13 around 2161.

He was fully aware of the Vault Experiment program conducted by the Enclave, and has therefore tried to do everything to keep the Vault closed for 200 years, just as the program wanted it to be. As it is quite unlikely that he could have been more than 100 years old, the knowledge about the experiment was probably passed to him from the previous Overseer, most likely one of his parents.

When the vault's only functioning water chip got damaged and shut down, he sent one of the vault dwellers, who later became known as the Vault Dweller, into the wasteland to find a replacement chip. In the course of his adventure, the Vault Dweller ended up defeating the mutant threat, and was subsequently expelled from Vault 13, as the Overseer thought that he would ruin the Vault Experiment by convincing people to leave the Vault.

Despite the Vault Dweller's exile, many people chose to follow him into the Wasteland. Although the Overseer tried to stop them, he was eventually tried and sentenced to death for his crime.

About Fallout
Fallout: A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game is a post-apocalyptic computer role-playing game that was developed and published by Interplay in 1997 and is the first game in the Fallout series.

The game takes place in the year 2161 on the West Coast of what used to be the United States of America, particularly in California. It begins in Vault 13, the protagonist's home. Vault 13's water chip, a computer chip responsible for the water recycling and pumping machinery, has broken. Armed with a PIPBoy 2000 and meager equipment, the protagonist is sent out into the remains of California to find another water chip.

The first three games set in the Fallout world: Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics, all three of which were removed from Steam at the beginning of this year, when the rights to the titles were lost by Interplay and gained by Bethesda Softworks, have now returned to the Steam store.

  • All three games have Steam Cloud enabled for save games.
  • Fallout 1 & Fallout 2 can be launched in either default or classic versions. Default allows for high resolutions and Classic is the original, unmodified release.
  • Fallout Tactics is unmodified. Multiplayer works with direct connect.
  • While Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 can run on Windows 8, Fallout Tactics is not Windows 8 compatible.

Currently, there is no news on whether the games will return to other services, such as GOG.com.

Sadly, Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics have been removed from the GOG.com catalogue due to the settlement of the Bethesda vs. Interplay lawsuit. The rights to the classic games are now entirely owned by Bethesda. We're still hoping they might re-release them in the future! The games can still be downloaded if you purchased them before.
