When I started this thread, a "remake" is what NightDive had been calling the general idea they'd announced earlier.Talvieno wrote: ↑Fri Jul 28, 2017 7:46 amthe title of this thread is a bit misleading. This is definitely not a "remake". This is someone's attempt to put as much of a mark as they can of their own on an already established franchise. I'm sure there will be some people who like it, but there will likely be a lot of people that hate it, too.
It was only when they got into the Kickstarter project that they announced they'd be calling it a "reboot" as a more accurate description of their actual intention, which was to change the design of the original System Shock (because "modern level design principles") but still market it as "System Shock."
I backed it because I'd like to see what they come up with. It's not what I wish they'd done, and I think the clear refusal to explain is wrong. But if this is all we can get (along with System Shock 3), well, they did the work to get the rights; I guess they can do whatever they want with the franchise.
