We can also expect improvements in gameplay mechanics and interface that will make the game better suited to modern standards.
The task of developing the remaster was entrusted to Triskell Interactive. It seems to be an excellent choice. The team debuted with Lethis: Path of Progress, which was a remarkable economic strategy, clearly inspired by Pharaoh, Zeus and other classics from Impression Games.
