Nightdive’s Blade Runner remaster is delayed

Nightdive's remaster of Westwood's great Blade Runner adventure game will not launch this year after all. Turns out, reverse-engineering a game to rebuild it in a whole new engine without access to the original assets is a bit of work. I still don't see why they're putting this much effort into it when a perfectly fine version is available on GOG, running in ScummVM. Especially…

Previously, the best hope was fan-made patches which worked for many but were crashy for me. Maybe now publishers will resolve the…

Westwood’s wonderful Blade Runner is becoming playable again

One of the great lost adventure game treasures of the 90s, Westwood's Blade Runner, is a little more found now that ScummVM is adding support to play it easily on modern systems. The 1997 adventure game from the Command & Conquer studio, which runs parallel to the movie Blade Runner, has been unplayable-ish for many years. It was the very last CD game I held…

8 things we learned about Deckard by exploring his Blade Runner apartment

The cyberpunk apartment of Blade Runner’s robot-killer Rick Deckard has been recreated as a walking sim, Blade Runner 9732. We told you about it before but it’s now on Steam, playable with a Vive VR headset (or without). Alice has already observed that Deckard enjoys the pungent odour of Axe and L’Oreal products, but what else can we learn about the extra-judicial android murderer by…

Explore Deckard’s gaff in this Blade Runner fan game

If you fancy whooshing to the impossibly far-off year of 2019 to revisit Blade Runner's rainy Los Angeles, have a gander at the free beta of Blade Runner 9732. It's a fan-made "virtual tour" of spacecop Rick Deckard's apartment, faithfully recreating everything from his armchairs and kitchen appliances through to his ESPER machine and the view from his balcony. While it does take a few…
