Arcanum: Of Screenshots & Resolutions Obscura

I’m yet to play Troika’s fondly-remembered, industrial-fantasy 2D RPG Arcanum: Of Steamworks And Magick Obscura, despite a) it having basically the best name in the world and b) my owning a copy that’s stared challenging at me from my game draw for years. The release of one Drog Black Tooth’s resolution-embiggening mod for it, a la the gorgeous Planescape high-definitioniser, may be enough to finally lure me over. I can’t personally attest to its reliability just yet, but unlike the Planescape one it doesn’t seem to mess up the UI, plus it purportedly supports any resolution. While Arcanum’s nowhere near as pretty as Planescape’s hand-painted backdrops, it still looks pretty sharp and fresh. Which seems like a good excuse for an Arcanum Retro piece soon….
