Below, we get our first video peek at the 'adventure alpha' version of the immersive sim revival, currently going out to some higher-tier Kickstarter backers. We also get a little peek at the remake's design methodology…

System Shock: Enhanced Edition now looks sharper and controls better than ever

Nightdive's remake of System Shock has been delayed until 2020, but playing the 1994 original is a more tempting option now. Paving the way for immersive sims like Deus Ex and Dishonored, System Shock is an important part of the genre's history, and after a surprise update yesterday it's a far more playable one. System Shock: Enhanced Edition is now a sharper looking game, expanded…

Retro FPS rework Forsaken Remastered parties like it’s 1998 today

Descent-like hoverbike FPS Forsaken rides again today, remastered by Nightdive. A fascinating relic from an era of over-filtered textures and lurid coloured lighting, Forsaken Remastered takes the '6 degrees of freedom' concept and makes it faster, louder and dumber. Fun, too, especially in its many messy multiplayer modes. While most of Nightdive's remasters have been as authentic to the source material as possible, this one…

The next old-school shooter to get some modern spit-and-polish from retro revival crew Nightdive is Forsaken, a Descent-like '6 Degrees of Freedom' FPS from the awkward early days of 3D acceleration. The update is being handled by Samuel 'Kaiser' Villarreal, brains behind Nightdive's Turok 1/2 & Strife remasters, plus a couple more done just for funsies like a PC port of Doom 64. Forsaken will…

ReWired is System Shock’s first ever fan-made campaign

Update: The creation of ReWired was made possible via the level editor, Deck, created by System Shock scholar Dertseha. They spent years (much of it without access to source code) reverse-engineering the game as part of their InkyBlackness project to create a comprehensive set of tools for the game. Here's just what the horrifying cyborg doctor ordered to keep System Shock fans busy while we're waiting on the…

Stomp-o! Turok 2 remaster coming in March

It's still weird to me that the company behind the revival and resumption of System Shock is also giving us re-releases of games like Turok 2: Seeds of Evil [official site] but hey, that's the rich tapestry of the 1990s. Now Nightdive have announced that they'll release the remaster of Iguana Entertainment's 1997 shooter on March 16th. This is Turok 2 expanded and rebuilt in…

Buy D On Steam And See What The ‘D’ Stands For

Psychological horror interactive movie and adventure game D is one of those games from that wacky time in the mid-'90s when developers tried to blend the then-new ability to use full-motion video on PC and consoles with traditional video gaming into something coherent. It was a heady and strange time in the gaming world, one in which it looked as though the mediums of cinema and…
