They’ve got what’s left of Looking Glass behind them in the form of Otherside Entertainment. They have SHODAN’s VA. Hell they even have Warren Spectre.
They first did the impossible in the form of sorting the rights mess out, id it again in the form of getting trademark away from EA. I mean come on they managed to snatch an IP away from EA…
And then they stepped into the lion’s den and asked the System Shock forum for feedback on what ‘we’ want.
It’s probably going to be kickstarter’d or use some other crowd funding platform. Funny thing is wiki mentions a system shock 2 remake as well. Kinda hopeful there since two largely ‘done’ games where the heavy lifting of planning is done and everything from level geometries, enemy behavior, and everything has been studied out the wazoo. Yes this theoretically takes from system shock three, ut I see it as them getting the team used to working with the verse again, and hopefully unifying things in universe, tying up loose ends, and if nothing else getting a version of the first game where the controls and interface aren’t complete ass.
Yes the enhanced edition helps, but it’s still bleh.
Anyone wanna talk about it?
